What is ClickBank? If you are a vendor wanting to know step-by-step how to sell products, specifically digital products, through the ClickBank Marketplace follow the steps shown below.
Suppose you have a product that you want to sell but you did not know how to market it yourself or you simply did not want to market it yourself. That’s where ClickBank comes to the rescue. As a vendor with a product to sell, you would follow these simple steps below to tap into the global economy by putting to work ClickBank’s over 100,000 active affiliates. Here’s how:
Step 1: Create a digital product such as an eBook. A digital product that is in a format that is accessible by people using different operating systems and software. For example, an Adobe Acrobat eBook is accessible by different operating systems and software.

Step 3: Setup your product within ClickBank
Step 4: Activate that product within ClickBank
Step 5: Create a simple website containing… A website with: - Your own domain name, keeping in mind that ClickBank does not allow you to use sub domains on another site, such as http://yourproduct.blogspot.com. - A Pitch Page and Thank You Page for your product. For more information on requirements for these pages, see “Get Started as a Vendor” on ClickBank. - An Affiliates page. This is a page on your site where you provide additional information, images, resources, and more to potential ClickBank affiliate marketers to help them promote your product. For more information on creating a great Affiliates page, see “Attract More Affiliates” on ClickBank.
NOTE: If you don’t know much about web design and want a quick and easy way to get your Pitch Page and Thank You Page built and hosted, check out a product called PitchMagic, which is sold by a ClickBank vendor. The software uses drag-and-drop functionality that follows many of the “best practices” of successful Pitch Pages but doesn’t require any knowledge of HTML.
NOTE: Regarding customer support. You must be able to provide timely customer support when needed, such as offering support to customers on using your product, or responding to return requests. See “Customer Support Ticket System” on ClickBank for more information.
Step 6: Make a Payment Link The Payment Link is a link from your Pitch Page to the ClickBank order form.
Step 7: Complete “My Site Information” within your account
Step 8: Complete “My Products Information” within your account
Step 9: Test Payment Link that you setup in step 6 above.
Step 10: Request Product Approval and pay a one-time $49.95 ClickBank activation charge
- A Marketplace Listing. While technically optional, we highly recommend that when creating your ClickBank product, you include a Marketplace title and description so your product can be listed in the Marketplace for affiliates to find and promote. This is the easiest way to start generating sales for your product. See “Get Started as a Vendor” for more information.
- A Vendor HopAd. Technically, you create this after your product has been approved. However, we highly recommend that every vendor create at least one as soon as their product goes live. These can be a great way to increase your sales and get more exposure for your product. See Creating Vendor HopAds for more information.
