How to Link Directly to a Clickbank Product Order Page

How to Create a Link Directly to A Clickbank Product’s Order Page (in HD)

This video is an HD “virtual transcription” of Rosalind ¬†Gardner’s helpful (but not very clear visually) “How to Link Directly to a Clickbank Product Order Page” that appeared here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXhcK_bf9SQ

I’ve added nothing but visual clarity to her excellent presentation … and the written notes below. Please do watch hers as well (if you haven’t already).

This is for those who can create a better sales page than the merchant has provided us, who need that important link directly to the Clickbank order form. This explains the trick for fabricating that link!

Why would you need such a thing?

Perhaps their sales page not aesthetically pleasing.

Or it has affiliate links of the owner on it. Quite inappropriate.

Or it has Google AdSense Ads on it. Hmmmmm.

Or it has links to other pages on it that could take the reader off of our sales page.

Or it has links to free offers on it.

We want only one link on the sales page – the BUY BUTTON!!!!

And we want that button to link directly to the Clickbank order page.

Here’s how:

Log in to Clickbank

Select the product you want to sell.

Get a Hoplink – copy it and paste it into Notepad or other text editor.

(At the time of making this video, the Clickbank hoplinks are encrypted.)

Paste the link into your browser and press ‘Enter’ and it will convert the link to the standard format – but most importantly it will take you to the sales page you are trying to avoid! ;-)

Hover over the “Buy Now” link of the product you want from the sales page and in your status bar, you will see the Product Number. Make note of that, or right-click on the buy link and copy the link to the clipboard, then paste that into your text editor.

Now you have both the ProductID AND the MerchantID in the format productID.MerchantID.pay.clickbank.net

To get the ItemNumber, click on the “Buy Now” link. This brings it to the order page.

Select the item number from the end of the URL and copy it to the clipboard, then paste that also into your text editor.

We now will replace the appropriate items into the text below to construct our Clickbank Order Form link that we will use on our sales page for our own Buy button:

clickbank.net/sell.cgi?yourID_merchantID/productNumber/itemNumber

(remember, the itemNumber came from the order page. Also, note the underscore between yourID and the merchantID!)

You cannot use the link that the merchant’s sales page took you to earlier (when you got the itemNumber) because it has a time-code and encrypted item information in it. You have to allow our “constructed” link that we’ve put together “auto-generate” this time-coded, encrypted link for us at the time the buyer lands on the order page. It is entirely secure in https and is ssl encrypted from there on, however, so don’t worry!

That’s it! Any questions?

(Do contact the merchant and explain that you are uncomfortable with their sales page, that you are not guaranteeing a sale, but would feel more comfortable making your own sales page.)

    Josh,
    Aside from some method of using Clickbank’s own tracking codes – if such exist, that being something I’m not aware of – I’ve heard from Kim Roach nothing but praise for Hypertracker:
    http://hypertracker.com/

    It is a paid service, but one which she says has MORE than returned on the investment for her time and time again. This being Kim Roach saying this, I’d be inclined to believe her. I’m certain they would have a solution that would work for this application.

    Any idea how to add an id to this..
    I am using it for an autowebinar, so the buy button appears at ened and I want buyer to go to direct to my checkout page, but want to track which version of the webinar the sale came from, so adding an id would do this.

    Excellent idea! But I’m not certain how one would approach this other than to simply tack on an ID at the end, perhaps following an ampersand or as if it was a sub-directory. If you figure something out, I’d sure like to hear about how you did it!
