How to Sell ClickBank Products

If you read my article on the 4 steps to affiliate marketing, you will have a good idea on how to sell ClickBank products.

Except for one huge difference if you are not planning to be an affiliate marketer for ClickBank also allows you to be a vendor as well.

How to sell ClickBank products

What is ClickBank?

First, let’s start by explaining what is ClickBank.

You can consider ClickBank as being the equivalent of Amazon or eBay for information or digital products.

Where people like you can create a product, such as a “How to” information product, that you can sell through ClickBank.

If you have produced a product to sell, then you are considered a “Vendor”.

The vendor, in turn, relies on affiliates to promote and sell your product by directing their traffic to your product hosted at ClickBank.

You, the vendor, then give a portion of the income from the sale of your product to the affiliate marketer as commission and a portion to ClickBank for their online service.

The big difference with ClickBank compared to Amazon or eBay is the amount of commission you pay out. Amazon will usually pay between 6 to approx. 12% commission to affiliate marketers.

At ClickBank, the vendor may pay out up to as high as 75% to the affiliate marketer.

Now you may think that is plain robbery!

Who pays 75% to a salesperson?

It may sound high but if you think about creating your product once, then post at ClickBank for affiliate marketers to do all the work at selling your product it’s not a bad deal.

As a vendor, wouldn’t you rather make $1 per sale if affiliates are bringing in 1000 sales per day, compared to trying to sell it yourself for $10 but only get 10 sales per day?

Not to mention you are not having the hassle to manage the sales which are taken care of by ClickBank.

Should I be a Vendor or an Affiliate Marketer?

If you have a digital product, then ClickBank is an ideal platform for selling, where you can sit back and let the affiliate marketers sell your stuff.

If you have no product of your own then being a ClickBank affiliate can give you a good start at creating your online business.

Succeeding as an Affiliate Marketer Selling ClickBank Products

To succeed as an affiliate marketer, selling ClickBank products, I suggest you check out my blog “The 4 steps to Affiliate Marketing”.

The 4 basic steps are as follows:

  1. Choose an Interest
  2. Build your Niche Website
  3. Attract Visitors
  4. Earn Revenue


Succeed as a Vendor

To succeed as a ClickBank vendor, you will need to create a product.

Most ClickBank products are “How to” digital products.

Some examples include the following subjects:

You will need to decide what type of product to create.

It can be written documents, audio and/or video information.

The advantage of creating a product and posting it on ClickBank versus just writing a book or posting a video is that you can build upon your base product.

With the ClickBank approach, you can provide various levels of access.

For instance, you can offer a short version of the information for let’s say $10.

You may get more sales at that lower price.

Once they sign up and use your lower price product and see how good your product is, then you can offer a full package for a higher rate or a monthly membership rate.

This is one of the key advantages of selling your product through ClickBank vs just writing a book and selling it on Amazon.

Amazon will give you one sell, but ClickBank can give you multiple or ongoing sales.

Another advantage with ClickBank is that you can create direct contact with your customers and prospective customers as you will have their contact information.


ClickBank offers you 2 extraordinary ways to earn an income online.

You can create and sell your own digital products while having thousands of affiliate marketers promoting your product to over 3.2 Billion potential online customers globally.

You can also promote products for sale on ClickBank to earn a hefty, up to 75% + commission on each referral and sale of a product on ClickBank.

About the Author Paul

My online journey started in 2008 when I was tired of working for somebody else. I searched the internet for years trying to find out how to make a living from home with an online business. In 2015 I finally found the information and support from a website just like this one

follow me on:
  • Attracting visitors. That takes time to build up that reputation on Google. It can be a lot of work but well worth it.

    • Paul says:

      It does take work to get what we call “organic” traffic to your site. Many people don’t realize that “Organic” traffic is “free” traffic, thanks to the search engines. If you can get the search engines to put your website on the first page of search results and people click on your site…that is free traffic. Once you learn how to get that free traffic to your site on a regular and progressively increasing basis you are on your way to a successful and profitable online business. Best of success!

    Holy money maker Batman!! I have briefly heard of ClickBank before but have never seen the full run down. Thank you for your informative post. Do you have any recommendations for learning how to create digital content?

    • paul says:

      Thank You! I can always appreciate a version of a Batman quote to describe one of my posts. As for the digital content…my best recommendation for your first product is to keep it simple, clear and honest. Unfortunately, there are many spams or scam type of content to be found in ClickBank as with anywhere else. People will put a lot of work into them only to be left aside as most experienced affiliate marketers will not waste their time promoting get rich quick scams. Make sure that it is true and honest, research or use your own personal experience. If you are stuck on trying to figure out what product to create then think about what it is people need to fix something or answer their questions. The process is much the same as creating a good website. You need to find out what it is people are needing then create content, can be a course, training, video or written.

    Hi Paul, I read your 4 Steps on the home page, and then Click Bank as it interests me. I have tried Click Bank and found almost zero products that would match my website to promote. Therefore I became an ebay partner to at least try affiliate marketing. Thank you for your article. It gave me an idea. I could become a vendor and write some ebooks in my niche as there wouldn’t be a lot of competition on Click Bank. Your explanation of Wealthy Affiliate was very detailed and sound like a good opportunity. Have a great day. Dave

    • Paul says:

      It is amazing how when you think something won’t work for you but then hear about how you can use something from a different angle. It is true that ClickBank does have a fairly narrow range of topics that you can use. Creating your own content to sell through ClickBank is a great way to sell a product that you create and you can also link it up to your website to create more traffic to your site for possible further sales.

  • Lillian says:

    Thanks for the great article on Clickbank. I knew that you could sell or promote other people’s products on Clickbank but I had never thought of creating my own material to sell. I have several things that I have been working on that could convert, I think, of my own product. Thanks for this very interesting and helpful article.

    • Paul says:

      You are welcome. That is just one other option available to you when running an online business from home. You can convert anything and everything into a potential income. I learned amny things from Wealthy Affiliate and I owe it to their community for learning so much more than affiliate marketing. Best of success with your future endeavors!
