Are you frustrated with Clickbank? For years now they have been the “reigning champion” when it comes to payment processing with a built in affiliate network. Clickbank makes it easy to sell your digital products and take advantage of their affiliate army, numbering over 100,000. It’s simple really – you let others sell your products and they earn commission.
Recently a new competitor has hit the scene, Click2Sell.eu. They’re a company based out of Europe who have put together a service that includes many of the features that others are lacking. No matter if you’re just a merchant (seller), or you’re a “super affiliate” making a living online, Click2Sell incorporates some wonderful features and benefits. Let’s take a closer look:
Merchants can sell digital or material products, even subscription based services. Your products can be sold in U.S. dollars, EUR or GBP. Payments are received instantly to your Paypal, Worldpay, Authorize.net, Google Checkout or Moneybookers account.
Once registered, you can be up and selling right away. There’s no “waiting period” for approval of thank you or sales pages. You set your own pricing, no maximum price points, and it’s easy to add new products.
Your digital products are uploaded to Click2Sell’s server and protected from unauthorized access. The thank you pages shown to buyers are encrypted so they never know the actual download location. All download links expire within 72 hours of purchase, which eliminates the problem of them being shared with others.
The built in affiliate program allows you to easily pay any affiliate commission with a few clicks, using either Paypal or Moneybookers. You set the commission rate you’re willing to pay, up to 95%. Affiliates can be automatically accepted or you can choose to manually approve them. This feature allows you to ban those you don’t want promoting your products.
Merchants are also given a choice to show affiliates the conversion rates of your products in the marketplace, or not. And, of course they’ve built in powerful statistics and tracking which reports on the number of active affiliates, and their performance. Also, it tracks product conversion rates for different keywords, a product’s rank and history of changes in the marketplace and much more.
Hang on to your seat because the benefits and features offered to affiliates are just as exciting. When searching for products you wish to promote, you can search through the marketplace using various criteria such as category, rank, amount earned per sale, conversion rate, popularity
and more. This is a great way to find just the products that meet your needs.
The built in advanced tracking reports allow you to see how many people clicked on your affiliate link, and the number that actually purchased. See how much you’ve earned in “real time”. Very nice. Even if they don’t purchase right away, if someone clicks on your affiliate link and goes back to purchase within six months, you’ll still earn your commission.
Any monies earned in a month are paid out in full the following month. No money is held back in a reserve account.
So, how much is all of this going to cost you? Don’t faint, but it’s totally free to set up an account, no
matter if you’re a merchant or just an affiliate. Merchants are charged 1.00 to 3.00 USD on each sale.
