In August of 2002, I needed to find a way to process credit cards online, but I couldn't afford a merchant account. I was watching TV one day and saw an infomercial for the Internet Treasure Chest. Curious, I Googled it and found a random comment that persuaded me to ditch the Internet Treasure Chest and look into Clickbank. is a great credit card processing solution and merchant account alternative.

First, Clickbank can accept credit cards from your site without a merchant account. If your products are digital (such as e-Books or software), you can use ClickBank to process credit cards and e-checks in real time. The cost is $49.95 upon signup and $1.00 per transaction plus 7.5% of sales.

Second, Clickbank is great for affiliates. Clickbank reports that 100,000 affiliates promote products from thousands of vendors everyday. With ClickBank, (as a vendor) you have your own built-in affiliate program. You decide what commission (from 1% to 75%) you would like to pay your affiliates. If you offered your affiliates $59.00 for your $79.00 product, do you think they will work hard for you? You bet they will!

You can also receive additional exposure through free listings on the ClickBank website and through the search facilities of other websites,
such as

If you just want to be an affiliate, even without applying for ClickBank credit card processing, you can earn referral commissions on thousands of ClickBank Marketplace products. You are only limited by your imagination!

Clickbank also eliminates sales tax problems. Since you must agree to
sell your product to ClickBank for resale, ClickBank becomes the retailer responsible for collecting sales taxes, not you. ClickBank will not be subject to sales taxes in most jurisdictions. ClickBank is registered in the European Union (EU) and adds the appropriate Value Added Tax (VAT) to each applicable transaction. ClickBank even accepts PayPal!

After a customer purchases your product through ClickBank, the customer is redirected to a "thank you" page. This page contains information about how the customer can download your product, thus automating your product delivery. You only need to insert some simple HTML to prevent your thank you page from being indexed by the major search engines. Place this single line of HTML after your title tag: (with opening and closing brackets)


I have recently had great success with Clickbank. I featured my software on a one day software discount site. This made me $161.00 in Net Sales in one day!

If you have a digital product, Clickbank is amazingly simple to set up. You will be able to get credit card processing up and running your first day! If you have any questions, contact me. I love hearing from
up-and-coming infopreneurs!
