Thanks for this - I have just got to the lesson about affiliate programs and went off to look at Clickbank but I was unsure about the products on their site. This video is useful in that I now know what to look for to separate the wheat from the chafe.

I've wrote a lot of negative reviews on ClickBank products and never took the time to understand all the metrics they show.

Thanks for this info!

JV Zoo is good, or a retail affiliate program like SFI, Ebay, or Amazon that has digital product offerings would fill this niche.

Do not advise the buy/return method for getting inside details. Clickbank will block you as a buyer and you cause hard to repair damage to the seller. It's a really nasty way of doing business.

Buy and return? You are so right. Nasty. buying the product --and using it!--- is simply a cost of doing business on Clickbank.

I used to ask for a review copy. Some sellers gave me that. But I guess the number of people with requests got huge and I would say you can ask now, but don't expect a yes.

It's a decision that each person will have to make.

The reality is that payment processing fees can go up if a seller is deemed high risk due to excessive charge banks. It's why Clickbank factors in chargebacks when ranking and even removing a product from the list and puts extreme focus on having you do everything possible to limit them from happening. When a refund is issued it is often canceled improperly and results in a credit card chargeback which can also cost an extra $25 to $75 on top of the refund. There is also the trust issue. One seller can out you and say this person fraudulently obtains your product for the purpose of review and issues a refund request even when they like the product. Your credability is shot to save a few bucks. The goal of a review is to profit and profit comes after cost.

Hi Nathaniell

Cool video, man.

I like how you show people that our investigation of Clickbank products absolutely needs to go beyond the borders of Clickbank.

You've picked a couple of great examples, like the woodworking one. Maybe the guy ripped developers off, maybe he didn't. But you show how to find the question so a potential affiliate can make a decision.

You show the silliness of those ubiquitous "scam or legit" websites , usually paid ones at the top of page one, in pink. .

And you show examples of how a product website may or may not attract viewers to stay on the page----ones with lots of photos etc.

A lot of things you show people----thanks!

The problem there is this one guy is claiming copyright infringement, but he also claims ClickBank don't care which is a lie. If you can show them proof that the license belongs to you or someone else, ClickBank will freeze the sellers account and stop their ability to process orders pending the author showing proof of license. I have seen it happen many times. Some people like to try and get a bogus refund claiming they got scammed and some review sites are run by folks who love the word scam and declare anything a scam so back-grounding the source of the scam complaint is vital or you will miss a lot of legit programs. Every program ever has had disgruntled ex customers even WA.

So true! We make our decisions re: what products to promote, often based on a mix of incomplete information/misinformation . But you gotta look, research as best you can, and decide. Follow your instincts. That kind of thing.

I too have seen the craziest attempts at discrediting companies---and yeah, WA is a good example. I think WA is a great place, and I have the highest respect and gratitude to Kyle, Carson, and other major contributors here. But what some few discrediting people have said! Makes me roll my eyes like a teenager.

@YumaBloggers, if you watch the video he gives specific examples and also claims he contacted clickbank with the examples. Apparently CB responded with canned messages, completely ignoring his complaints. If you watch the video, it's clear that he knows what he's talking about.

I didn't have access to his video, I had access to yours and I was talking more hypothetical. Not all negative reviews are red flags. Most are sour grapes. Someone expected miracle overnight riches and found out they had to work or spend money. That, sad to say is reality.
