    Hey Guys,

    What does this mean to you? Is there something wrong with the product?

    Are those your stats as an affiliate or vendor?

    That IS very strange... I'm no expert, but almost every Clickbank product I ever promoted had at least 1 sale for about 50 hops. If it didn't, I dumped it.

    That's strange. I would think there's something wrong with the referral process. But that wouldn't explain why you are still getting credit for the hops. I would try emailing Clickbank and see if something is wrong. Either that, or that product just converts terribly.

    Home Page:
    Even if the product is not selling, you will not see that much Order Pages submits. 150 is just too much all of them not to be legit. As a vendor I have never seen 150 submits without sale. I think you should maybe also contact the Vendor. Also it can be important to tell us what type of visitors are you bringing to the site?

    Someone is toying with you. Best way to deal with it is to report it to Clickbank.

    I contacted Clickbank with the matter, I'm really surprised that I haven't converted any of this traffic being that is it a fairly high gravity product and has a pretty good CB rep.

    Word of caution for the future.

    Gravity does not necessarily mean conversions. Gravity tells you by weighted average how many people are promoting it.
    Rep on the other hand, is difficult to measure.

    Best idea when choosing products is to go for mid gravity products which will give you some room to market it without too much competition or too many already marketed to viewers visiting your link, and to give you the security that the product is not going to disappear due to lack of sales for the vendor.

    However, I do not think the stats you have shown have anything to do with the product, just looks far too unrealistic to be real people creating those stats and CB stats are quite accurate and reliable in most cases.

    Your order form submits are way too high compared to hops. More than half your visitors go to the order form?

    That's nigh on impossible, even with heavily warmed up traffic.

    With regards to high hop count but no sales -- what kind of traffic is this? Is it targeted?

    With regards to high order form views but no sales -- does the sales page happen to have an exit splash message that redirects the viewers directly to the order form with a discount?

    150 order sever calls without any order?? You gotta be kidding.... my stats are that ~70% from order server calls are real sales, order server call means customer entered credit card data and press submit 150 people tried to pay with fake card??? Or paypal account????

    Sounds to me like person/people are using a bad/fraudulent credit card info and clickbank is not approving sale.
