    Thank you for this review on Click Bank.
    I did not know that there are already 19 years old. I have signed only a month ago and so far I’m still learning all the options that Click Bank offers. You’re right that Click Bank offers thousands of products, and that is in fact the biggest problem is to find the right product or group of products they offer to their readers on the site. But in addition, Click Bank is a great way of earning online.

      Thank you for your visit and your comment. ClickBank is a great source to make a good income online. Narrowing down the products can be a challenge but if you know what you already want to promote, it make the process a little easier. I wish you much success with your experience with them. Thanks again for visiting and commenting.

    Hey man, I just wanna say that I really enjoyed reading your article. I recently made a website about 3 months ago and have been looking for different ways to monetize my site but I thought the only way was affiliate marketing, so I’m glad I found this. Do you know if you get paid just for the click as well as the cost per action?

      Hey Gabe,

      thanks for stopping by and commenting. If you are referring to actions as a regular member, you get paid for the ads that you click on. You can also sign up as an affiliate and promote your product or promote other people’s products. If you are promoting your product, you set the commission rate you are willing to pay others to promote your product. If you choose to promote other people’s product, you can be paid a commission anywhere between 5% to 75% depending on the product being promoted. Here is a link that can further explain the process for you (…). Hope this helps you out. Thanks again for stopping in and commenting.
