    Hello,
    I think CB/Vendor Cheating the Old Affiliates.

    Last month I earned $500 from only one product. But this month I have no sells.

    Yesterday, I created New Account & Replace the Aff Link, I got Sell. So I think, CB Cheating the Old Account Holder.

    What about you?

    I have met the same situation before and now I am not sure is caused form CB cheating, or vender or maybe from product itself. But now I have as normal or less when compare last year. (meaning amount sales). I think the problem is mixed, some day I got 2-3 sales per day , and no sale 1-3 days and then got sale again. the loop like this.

    Not made a sale on CB for the last 5 days, which is unusual, despite plenty of hops/order form impressions. Don't know if that has any bearing on what OPand others have posted.

    This doesn t means that cb shaves. Check your niche using google trends...is it seasonal niche or evergreen? And check volume...

    A lot of new affiliates usually blame Clickbank or the vendor for cheating, but that's not the case. Rather than blaming it on Clickbank, maybe you should re-check how you are promoting the offer.

    The last thing Clickbank would want to do, is ruin their reputation, just over a couple of sales.

    I think the real problem here is that your sales are not consistent. For example, you will make a sale today and the next couple of days no sales, or maybe even for a week....or a whole month in the worst case - I was there once.

    But let me ask you this:

    how targeted is your traffic?

    How consistent is your traffic?

    Are you using a landing page or just direct linking?

    Are you collecting emails and doing email follow ups?

    How saturated is the product?

    I mean, there are lots of reasons to explain the fluctuations in your sales. But it's definitely not clickbanks fault.

    Also if you have any doubts you can contact Clickbank and the vendor directly, and they will sure get back to you.

    @wortwood @karmandy93 and how the hell do you know for a fact that there is not some problem on CB's side? Inside info or you just work for them?

    OP Im not into CB these days and I don't send big traffic to their offers, but I have a product that was making sells continuously (months) on certain amount of hops, in the past months the traffic is same but the sales are gone.

    If we look at the facts: they have changed their ownership and started making changes, few months after that a lot of folks started complaining.

    Maybe something is going on...

    Sales fluctuations could be a result of many things, but not Clickbank.

    Also do you have any pure evidence that it's Clickbank shoving affiliates? You just blame Clickbank but with no substantial eveidence.

    If you really think Clickbank was shoving you, you can simply contact support and provide them your data, and they will gladly look into it for you.

    They have an awesome support service - I know this because I contact them all the time.

    Plus, you have to take into account they are literally adware out there that can steal commissions. This was the case with Google sniper by Goerge Brown. Now in order to promote it you need to get approved.

    I mean, there are lots of reasons I could give you, but not Clickbank.

    Plus, I do not work for Clickbank - I'm just a happy affiliate who never had any problems with them. And I continue to make sales on daily basis with zero problems.

    EDIT: another possibility could be tracking error from the Clickbank side, although that is rarely the case.

    I claim nothing bro, don't put words in my mouth! You defended them relying on pure biz logic, which I share too. But we all know that not all process in business follow the straight forward logic.

    Exactly! They always try to blame someone else, when they stop seeing sales come in.

    And I will always hold my ground. Clickbank does not shove affiliates - I'm enjoying the sales come in on a daily basis and never ever any complains.

    I'm not putting words in your mouth...

    I defend them because those affiliates who make sales are the quiet ones, while the ones who see a lot of sales fluctuations always find something to blame.

    Let's be real here.

    I completely agree that Clickbank are definitely doing something on their end. Same thing happened to me as well, I send traffic through Bing and clicks don't lie. If you have 50-60 clicks and zero sales for a genuine service not some weird weight loss kind of crap then definitely you are being cheated my friend. Unfortunatelly there isn't much to be done rather than keep digging and looking for better ways to make money.

    Man I am not new in CB. I made Good sells last 2 years from 1 products, even i never had any refund. Products is Good. But this month my sells 0, this is unusual, I changed the account and getting sells.

    My Traffic is Highly Targeted, All of my videos are ranked, My Site also ranked in 1st page for 10 keywords. I am getting 10k+ traffic per month.

    1-2 weeks are not a big deal, but 0 sell for 5 weeks is really worst. When I change my CB Account, I got sells with in 8 Hours, Thats why I'm Doubting CB.
