I have seen multiple gurus promoting clickbank and I checked out that most of their products have very sketchy websites. If they are legit, how would customers trust their websites and buy as they dont look legit, hence wont it affect the conversion rate?

I'd say they are legitimate. My Clickbank earnings were over $1000 this year. But it is possible for a commission to get hacked. So it is important to mask your affiliate link with a plugin like ThirstyAffiliates, to protect it from potential hackers.

There are thousands of vendors that use ClickBank to connect their offers with affiliates. Some of the vendors might be a little fishy, but Clickbank kind of acts as an intermediary. If a vendor has too many strikes against them, they could lose their ability to sell on Clickbank.

ok thanks for this, it was very comforting but what do you mean by masking the links with ThirstyAffiliates?

MAmsyar,

Hello, I just wanted to offer you some insight on Clickbank. I hope this helps.

Clickbank is a central hub for affiliate marketers and product creators combined. They make money by bringing products and sellers together.

Clickbank is kind of like the ball field that product creators and affiliate marketers (sellers) play on.

They are a very reputable company because they are the ball field.

They created a platform kind of like Wealthy Affiliate if you think about it.

Wealthy Affiliate brings in curious students/customers and trains them into like-minded individuals (affiliate marketers) and then provides them with their own "affiliate programs platform" built right into Wealthy Affiliate.

Clickbank connects the affiliate marketers to the affiliate programs and products that we as affiliate marketers can then turn around and promote.

Clickbank does try to provide valid and solid products. However, I would think it would be hard to sift through all of the products that are submitting to their compnay each day.

They are adding new products to their platform all the time so that affiliate marketers like you and I can go there and find new opportunities to promote all the time.

If you find a product on Clickbank that you think is "sketchy" do some research on that particular product before you promote it. It will pay to do your due diligence in the end.

If you can't find enough information about the product then go with your gut because it's far easier to find a new product than it is to clean up your reputation for promoting garbage.

Clickbank is out to make money just like everyone else so I wouldn't personally hold Clickbank responsible for each product that is on their platform.

To my knowledge, they always pay on time and in full. So if your considering marketing products with them it's safe. Just be mindful who you "get into bed with" and you'll be fine.

I hope this helps.

They have always made timely payouts to me. They also offer a refund policy and if that is offered you will not receive the payout.

They are transparent with everything and do a great job.

Clickbank itself is 100% legit but many products on it are not. I promote products from CB and used to do it a lot.
