    My sales plunged too, not to zero but it's the lowest of the year. I suppose it has something to do with Trump getting elected?

    Are you promoting something related to elections.

    Look for server down time and check your SERPs tracker. Could be due to the elections but that would only be tuesday, as folks leave work to vote. I don't think Trump or Hillary being elected would make any difference on Clickbank sales this soon, they're not even president yet.

    Mine too I just switched to amazon because honestly this is probably a better time for amazon. Considering people are getting presents for Christmas. I would suggest switching to amazon as well if I were you.

    My sales have dipped too. But not to zero sales, just a 50% fall in sales as an affiliate.

    Like others have said in other threads it could be due to seasonal factors.

    Think about it... most people would be saving for their vacation in December. Also, they would rather purchase physical products for Xmas or even the New Years.

    Health and weight loss niche products would definitely dip too as people have the mentality of procrastinating it to next year as part of their 'new year resolution'.

    People are probably saving their money/holding off for black Friday and they will probably be doing a lot of their xmas shopping then too.

    Strange thing is that even people not working in seasonal niches are getting low sales.

    Niche, volume, etc all could be at work. Are hits down? Have you checked the signup process to make sure no issues or changes etc.

    I truly believe it's the season and like Skyebug said - upcoming Black Friday.

    Many top converting products have their gravity scores dropped drastically too. So... I guess it will continue till the start of next year.

    For now, we can wait till it's after Black Friday. Sales should improve a little, and fully recover once it's the new year.

    I'm late to the party, but my sales saw a significant drop on election day, and then saw a smaller drop the day after. They recovered immediately after that. The election was extremely distracting.

    Are you doing product launch or a long-term business with an authority website/blog ?
    Its naturaly that a new product is hot buying but goes down in next weeks, it's the rule of the game, but it's not a small prolem if your sales from blog is reduced to zero. Check the google analytic or webmaster tool to see if there is any warning related to over optimzed seo.

    I think that It can be because so many people is promoting the same product and is oversold on market

    Digital sales are always down during this period, and in fact looking at the past years you can see the same kind of threads come up around mid nov - end dec; this year is no exception. Some examples from past years:

    2014: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/clickbank-stats-christmas-and-new-year.728322/
    2015: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/huge-drop-before-christmas.811215/

    Every year, you get a bunch of people who freak out with this drop and say it's because clickbank is done and jump ship, and the rest of clickbank affiliates secretly pat their backs as they know this will mean less competition allowing them to get a bigger bite out of the pie ;)
