Adding products and services on ClickBank

 

In this tutorial, we explain how to add a product or service on ClickBank. We describe only the most necessary steps required to connect your ClickBank with Signal Magician.

If at any stage you have more questions about how to add products on ClickBank or how to use ClickBank refer to their ClickBank knowledge base.

Useful article: Creating Your First Product.

 To make your products look more professional on the ClickBank checkout page, you should have a product image uploaded. It can be your product logo, software box image, or something similar. The image is optional but highly recommended. To upload images to your ClickBank account go to VENDOR SETTINGS, then open My Images and finally, click on the Add New Image button.

To make your products look more professional on the ClickBank checkout page, you should have a product image uploaded.

It can be your product logo, software box image, or something similar.

The image is optional but highly recommended.

To upload images to your ClickBank account go to “VENDOR SETTINGS”, then open “My Images” and finally, click on the “Add New Image” button.

 When uploading an image, you need to enter its name, choose the type of the image and of course, choose the image file to be uploaded. In this example, we choose Product as image type because this is the image for the product. A few important things to note about the image: - Product images must be between 20x20 and 100x100 pixels in dimension - Image must be below 20kb in size - Your image filename must be less than 45 characters in length You might need to ask for help your image designer to fit with these requirements if ClickBank does not allow uploading your image.

Click on “APPROVAL REQUESTED”

Click on APPROVAL REQUESTED Once your image is uploaded it is automatically sent to ClickBank for approval. ClickBank usually reviews it within 1 business day after your account has been activated. If your account is currently activated, you will receive a response within 1 business day. When your image is approved the status will change from Approval Requested to Approved. After your image is approved, you will be able to assign it to your products. But to not waste time we will create products without a product image.

 Item Number - this is a required field. Signal Magician need it to identify the connection between the Offer and ClickBank product. Make sure you enter a unique ID number. Each product you'll create should have a unique Item Number. But you can have the same product with different Item Numbers. For example, two different products with different price tags (and different Item Numbers) enable the same Offer on Signal Magician. How to know what number you can use there? Any number will do if you have not used it before when creating ClickBank products. Usually, ClickBank generates this number automatically, but still, you should make sure that it does not conflict with any other product number on your systems. In this example, we use 2 as an Item Number for the first product. For other products, we will use 3, 4, and so on. Product Title - this is the name of the product/subscription plan in your service. For example, Forex Signals (with 7-day Trial). Another example to the Item name could be My Super Signals (Bronze plan) or something like Trading Signals (Premium package). Well, you get the point. It can be anything you want. Remember that this is how your clients will see it on the ClickBank checkout page before and after the payment. Language - this is where you need to set the language in which the product or service is offered. Image - this is where you choose which image you want to display on the ClickBank order form. In this example, we do not have any image selected because it is optional. But in reality, you should have a product image uploaded. You can choose the image here when ClickBank approves it as we explained in the previous steps. Description - this description will appear on the ClickBank order form. Make sure it explains your product well so that customers understand what they are actually buying from you.

 Pitch Page URL - this is the URL of your product/service sales page on your website. Mobile Pitch Page URL - (optional) this is the same as Pitch Page URL but for people visiting your website on a mobile device. If your website is created well and is mobile responsive then usually both URLs are the same here. The Pitch Page URL we use right now is just an example. For you, it should be a webpage on your website.

 Product Currency - choose in which currency you want ClickBank to bill your customers. Initial Product Price - set what initial price a consumer must pay for the initial purchase of your rebill product. Initial Commission - this is the percentage of the sale that is paid to the referring affiliate. It is probably too early for you to worry about it so just leave it as is.

 We have Use initial product title and description box checked to use the same info for the same. If you need to change the title or description for a recurring product then un-check this box. Recurring Product Price - this is where we set the rebill price a consumer pays for each subsequent payment for the duration of a rebill. Recurring Commission - this is where you set the percentage of the sale that is paid to the original referring affiliate for all successful rebills of this recurring product. Rebill Frequency - this is where you set the timeframe for which rebilling will occur (i.e., Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly). In this example, we choose monthly payments. Subscription Duration - this is the total number of times the customer will be billed over the life of this product, including the initial charge. We set this to Unlimited Duration which means ClickBank will stop rebills only when you or a consumer cancels the subscription.

Later, we will create another product like this but with the trial period to give you an example of how it works. Thank You Page URL - the URL where you provide instructions on how to retrieve the product. Create a page on your website where you want customers to be taken in case they complete their checkout. It is usually called Thank You page. An example would be, a simple web-page saying something like Thank you for subscribing to our trading signals. We've sent your login information to the email address you use to complete this purchase. Do not forget to check your Spam folder too. Contact our support team here if you don't receive your login information within 15 minutes. The Thank You URL we use right now is just an example. For you, it should be a webpage on your website.

Duplicate a product

Duplicate a product Now when we have our first product added on ClickBank, we will duplicate it to create a similar one. The reason for this is to have the same product but with a 7-day trial period. To duplicate a product we need to click a Duplicate this product button next to the product we want to duplicate.

 Mostly all parameters remain the same as for the Item Number 2 we've created recently. Item Number, of course, will be different. For the Product Title, we will use the same but add 7-day trial so that it makes it clear what service is offered.

For the Product Title, we will use the same but add “7-day trial” so that it makes it clear what service is offered.

 Also, we'll set the Initial Product Price to $1. It is the price for the 7-day trial period. It is possible to set this to $0 and offer a FREE trial, but we usually do not recommend it. The idea is that if you charge a small fee like $1 or $5 for a trial period, then you would filter out people who do not have any way to pay for your services online.

 Recurring Product Price and Rebill Frequency stays the same. The Trial Period for this product we set to 7 Days. It means that after 7 days a second rebill will occur which will be $47 and the consumer will be charged $47 monthly until canceled.

 No trial period for this product. You could create another one with a trial period, but from our point of view, the idea of a 50% discount offer is to win back customers who canceled your service already. They don't need another trial period. Click Save Changes to add this product.

Click “Save Changes” to add this product.

 After the product have been added on ClickBank, we need to send an approval request. ClickBank team must approve your product before you can sell it on ClickBank. To send approval request, you need to click on APPROVAL REQUEST REQUIRED link next to each product and fill in the form that ClickBank will provide. This procedure might be a bit different for everyone depending on your business so we will not cover it in this tutorial. We can still make a test purchase before products are approved to see how all this works. We will explain a test purchase step by step shortly after we create Offers on Signal Magician so that the system knows what to do with these ClickBank Items once consumers purchase them.

Creating Signal Magician Offers

 

What is Offer in Signal Magician?

Offers tell the Signal Magician which Signal Providers, Services, and Products it should enable when a Webhook from the payment processor triggers the Offer.

Each Offer must link to a specific ClickBank Item Number, Stripe Plan ID, or PayPal Subscription ID. This is how the system knows which Offer it needs to trigger when Signal Magician receives a Webhook call from the payment processor.

Each Offer can be activated by more than one Subscription/Plan ID (i.e., three plans at different prices activate the same Offer). But each Subscription/Plan ID can be linked to only one Offer which means you cannot assign the same plan to multiple Offers.

When you link an Offer to the Subscription/Plan ID make sure the Interval and Trial period match these parameters on the payment processor system.

Note Signal Provider IDs before creating Offers

Note Signal Provider IDs before creating Offers Go back to the Signal Magician and open Users page from the left menu. Select Signal Provider from the top search bar and click on Search button. Each Signal Provider has a unique ID number. Note these numbers as we'll need them when creating an Offer.

Open the Offers page from the left menu and then click on “Create new Offer” button at the top.

 We need to create an Offer and connect it with the products we've just added on ClickBank. Before creating the Offer, you need to know which ClickBank products you'll connect it with. We'll connect this particular Offer Forex Signals (with Trial) to the ClickBank product with Item Number 3. We'll set the Item Number in step #6. Offer name - give a name for your Offers. Only you'll see them. Enabled - this is where you can enable or disable offers. When the Offer is disabled, it won't listen to any messages from ClickBank. Interval - set the billing cycle interval for this Offer. It should match with the ClickBank product billing interval. Trial access - set the number of days for the trial period. When set to 0 (zero) the trial period is disabled for this Offer. If you have a trial period enabled for ClickBank products in this Offer then enable it here too. The number of days may or may not match. If the trial period is disabled for the ClickBank products in this Offer, then set this value to 0 (zero). In this example, I use 7 days trial, but I set a trial period to 10 days to allow some extra days in case of payment problems. Think of it as a grace period. Web Panel - tells the Offer whether it should enable Web Panel access for the customer or not. Trade Copier - tells the Offer whether it should enable Trade Copier service for the customer or not. You should set this to Yes if this Offer is subscribing customers to Signal Providers. Email Alerts - tells the Offer whether it should enable Email Alerts for the customer or not. Email Alerts are sent by Signal Providers when a trade is opened or closed. SMS Alerts - tells the Offer whether it should enable SMS Alerts for the customer or not. SMS Alerts are sent by Signal Providers when a trade is opened or closed. Follow these Signal Providers - enter the list of Signal Provider IDs and separate them with commas. We'll use all three ID numbers we've collected in the previous step from the Users page. Create access to these products - select which products to include in this Offer. The EA Licensing module will create License Keys for each selected product. ClickBank Subscription ID list - enter the list of ClickBank Item Numbers and separate them with commas. It tells which ClickBank products must trigger this particular Offer. In this example, this Offer will get triggered by a ClickBank product with Item Number 3. Click on Create new Offer button.

Creating ClickBank Payment Links

 

If you need, you can find detailed explanation about creating ClickBank payment link on ClickBank knowledge base.

In this tutorial, we explain the most important part when building ClickBank payment links.

Build Your ClickBank Payment Link

Build Your ClickBank Payment Link Each of your products on ClickBank has its payment link, and it is what allows customers to purchase your product via the ClickBank order form. You'll need to manually create the payment link to send customers to the order form. Your payment link format looks like this: https://VENDOR.pay.clickbank.net/?cbitems=ITEM Notice the URL has two parameters: VENDOR - this is your ClickBank ID. It is also called ClickBank username, ClickBank login, or ClickBank vendor name. In this tutorial, ClickBank vendor name we use is eatrend. You can find your ClickBank ID at the top of the page when you are logged into your ClickBank account. ITEM - this is product Item Number. We have three products created, and their Item Numbers are 2, 3, and 4. Our ClickBank vendor name is eatrend so here are three payment links we create. Payment link for Item Number #2 Forex Signals (without trial): https://eatrend.pay.clickbank.net/?cbitems=2 Payment link for Item Number #3 Forex Signals (with 7-day Trial): https://eatrend.pay.clickbank.net/?cbitems=3 Payment link for Item Number #4 Forex Signals (50% OFF): https://eatrend.pay.clickbank.net/?cbitems=4 Now we can use these payment links for test purchase. When you get your ClickBank account and products approved you can use your payment links on your website, send them by email, Telegram, Skype, etc. For best use, payment links should be added on your Pitch Page where you have your products and services explained with pricing plans and all other relevant information.

Each of your products on ClickBank has its payment link, and it is what allows customers to purchase your product via the ClickBank order form.

You’ll need to manually create the payment link to send customers to the order form. Your payment link format looks like this:

https://VENDOR.pay.clickbank.net/?cbitems=ITEM

Notice the URL has two parameters:

VENDOR – this is your ClickBank ID. It is also called ClickBank username, ClickBank login, or ClickBank vendor name. In this tutorial, ClickBank vendor name we use is “eatrend”. You can find your ClickBank ID at the top of the page when you are logged into your ClickBank account.

ITEM – this is product Item Number.

We have three products created, and their Item Numbers are 2, 3, and 4. Our ClickBank vendor name is eatrend so here are three payment links we create.

Payment link for Item Number #2 “Forex Signals” (without trial):

https://eatrend.pay.clickbank.net/?cbitems=2

Payment link for Item Number #3 “Forex Signals” (with 7-day Trial):

https://eatrend.pay.clickbank.net/?cbitems=3

Payment link for Item Number #4 “Forex Signals” (50% OFF):

https://eatrend.pay.clickbank.net/?cbitems=4

Now we can use these payment links for test purchase.

When you get your ClickBank account and products approved you can use your payment links on your website, send them by email, Telegram, Skype, etc.

For best use, payment links should be added on your Pitch Page where you have your products and services explained with pricing plans and all other relevant information.

Making a Test Purchase of Forex Signals or Products

 Once the Test Credit Card Number is generated, you'll see its information in the Testing Your Products table. Note that the test credit card can only be used on the ClickBank order form to test the entire order process of your products. Test credit cards expire in about a week or so, but you can always get back to this page and create a new test credit card. Now that you have a test credit card you can use it to make a test purchase of your products and services you have on ClickBank. Remember those payment links you've created not so long ago? Now it's time to use them.

 Now let's open the checkout page for Item Number 2 using the URL we've built not so long ago: https://eatrend.pay.clickbank.net/?cbitems=2 On the checkout page we fill in the required fields and of course, use the newly generated temporary email address. For the billing information, we use the test credit card details we got from the ClickBank in the previous steps. Notice the information message at the top of the page which tells us that this can be purchased only using test credit card. That's what we are doing right now. Also, notice the Future Payments section. It says that this is a monthly payment and even gives the exact date to let us know when the next payment will be billed. Remember this when some users will be telling you they did not know it was a monthly recurring payment. All users see this information in several places when purchasing recurring services or products so if they miss this information it is not your fault. Next, check the I agree box and click on Pay Now to continue with this test purchase.

You set this Thank You Page URL when adding products on ClickBank. We don't click this button in this example because we don't have Thank You page ready, but you should have your Thank You page at this stage already. Notice the red message box which tells us that this was a test purchase. And there's also the monthly payment notice again to inform the consumer about the next payment's date.

Canceling ClickBank subscription and how it affects user services on Signal Magician

 

Let’s cancel this ClickBank subscription

There are two ways the cancellation can happen.

One way is when the customer cancels the subscription by himself. Another way is when you cancel the subscription on behalf of a customer.

From our experience, it is always best to cancel subscription for the customer. The reason is that users can enter comments with their cancellation request and no all of them can be positive comments.

The reality is that not all customers will be happy with your services and if they cancel subscription by themselves they might type angry comments which will be visible to ClickBank staff.

But if users contact you and ask to cancel their subscription, then you can type the neutral comment like “Do not need anymore” or something like that.

 To submit a cancellation or refund request, you'll need an email address and order number (a.k.a. ClickBank Receipt number). This information is sent by email to the user and the vendor (you) after each payment. We find this information in the temporary customer email inbox. To submit ClickBank subscription cancellation request go to this website: https://www.clkbank.com

Refunding purchases on ClickBank and how it affects user services on Signal Magician

 

 Let's experiment before we process the refund on ClickBank account. It will help you to understand better how Offers work. As you already know, Offers can have multiple services and ClickBank Item Numbers assigned. It is how Signal Magician knows which Offer each ClickBank Item Number triggers and what services must be created for the user. For this experiment, we'll edit the Offer with the ClickBank Item Number 2 and then process a refund for this particular subscription. Open Offers page and click on the Edit icon next to the Offer which has ClickBank Item Number 2 assigned.

 When License Key is created click on Back to License Keys list.

When License Key is created click on “Back to License Keys list”.

 Here it is. A new License Key for a new product for a new user. You can see in the Created column it says created by Admin, but ClickBank created other two License Keys for the same user. So why we are doing this and how it makes this experiment more interesting? Well, we want to illustrate how modifying the Offer affects the refunds that happen from time to time in any business. We want to show that it is not a good idea to modify Offers when you already have customers created through these Offers. And if you do need to change the Offer, then you should be aware of the consequences. We always recommend creating new Offer or even new ClickBank products if required instead of modifying existing Offer when there are already products and services created from that Offer. Now, we will process a refund for the payment of this new user, and it will trigger the same Offer. But because it will be a refund request, it will revoke the access to all the services added to the Offer for that particular user. But we've already removed SPID 12 and Moving Average Standard from the Offer. It means the Offer will not touch these services as well as those created manually.
