Although the Clickbank affiliate program enables you to make good money online, you can earn extra commission by referring new product vendors to ClickBank with one of the best referral programs on the internet. (Unfortunately there is no Clickbank affiliate program at the moment for referring new affiliates.)
To see how the marketing referral program works, this post will be treated under the following sub-headings:

How to Get Started and Commissions Earned
How to Get Started
To get started in the ClickBank Vendor Referral Program:
- Start promoting your Clickbank Referral Hoplink everywhere (on your blog, in forums, on social media, etc.).
You don’t know how to promote? See here.
- This will drive new vendors to the ClickBank signup page.
- Then you are credited the referral when a new vendor registers via your Referral HopLink.
[Note that for the purposes of classifying an account as dormant, commissions for referring product vendors to ClickBank are not count as sales activity (earnings).]
When a vendor referred by your Referral Hoplink activates their account, you earn commission of 22% of their activation charge of $49.95. But that’s not all.
You also get 5% of ClickBank’s typical markup of each sale that your recruited vendor makes for one full year from the date they initially signed up.
ClickBank’s usual markup on every sale is $1 + 7.5% of the sale price. This means that you earn about $0.09 to $0.99 on every sale. Since this commission amount comes solely from ClickBank’s markup, it does not affect the amount earned by the vendor.
Here below are examples of referral commissions on some sale amounts:
|Sale Amount||Commission Amount|
Your Referral Hoplink Format
The following is the format of a Clickbank Referral HopLink:
For it to work, you must replace “NICKNAME” with your account nickname.
For example, my Clickbank account nickname is akoli, so my Referral Hoplink becomes:
Eager to become a Clickbank vendor? Click here to start today!
The HTML look like this:
<a href=”http://NICKNAME.reseller.hop.clickbank.net” target=”_blank”>CLICK HERE</a>
Here also, to make it work:
- Replace “NICKNAME” with your account nickname.
- Replace “CLICK HERE” with any promotional text or image of your choice.
And for me, that becomes:
<a href=”http://akoli.reseller.hop.clickbank.net” target=”_blank”>CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP NOW AS A CLICKBANK VENDOR NOW</a>
And this is how it appears in the text editor:
Go ahead, click it to become a Clickbank vendor today.
Referred vendors are tracked when they click on your Referral HopLink and create an account.
Record of Earnings
Your 22% commission ($9.99) of the activation charge ($49.95) that you earn when a referred vendor signs up, will appear under transaction type “bons-0001” in the transaction detail. And the 5% markup for all sales made by that vendor for an entire year will be posted as transaction type “bons-0002” in the transaction detail.
Does that not sound great?
Yeah, it sure does!
So, get busy promoting your Clickbank Referral Hoplink to refer vendors to earn 22% of their $49.95 activation charge and 5% of ClickBank’s typical markup of each sale that your recruited vendor makes for one year.
