PostHeaderIcon Why is a Clickbank product not listed?

Occasionally affiliates want to promote a product they have seen advertised but cannot find it at the ClickBank Marketplace where they want to check out its statistics and in particular the commission rate.

The possible reasons for not showing are

- the vendor chooses not to post the product at the Marketplace
because he does not want to use affiliates or – more likely -
he wants affiliates to sign up through his own management
system (such as easyClickMate)

- the product slipped out of the Marketplace as it failed to record a sale in thirty days (it is reinstated on the next sale)

- the product is one of several in the vendor’s account, only the main one is listed in the marketplace.

If you still want to promote the product you should contact the vendor.

PostHeaderIcon Where is the refund rate shown for a ClickBank product ?

If you go to the ClickBank Marketplace

you will see information about each entry.

There’s a common misconception that $refd stands for the refund rate.  **

It’s not. It stands for %referred.

All the terms are explained here

So where do we find or calculate the refund rate ?

The answer is – you can’t.

The reasons are

* the  vendor account does not necessarily represent one item (up to 500 items are allowed)

* the commission rate may have changed

* the price may have changed

If you see 3rd-party tools claiming to show the refund rate they cannot be accurate.

** This term was finally dropped by ClickBank in Aug 2010
