I was just curious about this.
Let's say hypothetically that you are an affiliate of Clickbank and there is an offer you would like to purchase for your own purposes. Can this be done? Is it ethical? And if it ok to do so, how do you do this?
Thanks

I have come across some that allow and very few who do. Some which allow will not pay you.

I would have thought you could or at least you'll be able to but after reading some of the other comments I guess that makes sense

Most do not allow this, you have to contact the company you are affiliated with, I have 2 companies who are allowing this

That's good. I contacted Book Depository about this as my wife has been buying books from them for years. They haven't come back to me yet with an answer.

Most affiliate programs frown upon the practice. Unless they have changed, even ClickBank recently is withholding payment if the credit cards used for sales aren't diversified enough. In other words, if you use the same credit card to purchase a bunch of ClickBank products with your affiliate id, you may not receive the payment. They want to see that multiple people are buying which implies that you have customers instead of you buying using your own affiliate id. Again, check with ClickBank to make sure but I read about this change several months ago.

Some affiliate programs simply don't credit you with the sale while others may ban you from the program if you are caught doing it. Be sure to check the rules of each program.

Best Regards,

It is not seen as unethical, some sites do not allow (like a’azon)

Know your own identification first. Eg 123

Just in link...

Www. http:/ /Blabla. com/789

Replace 789 by 123
