6 Reasons Why You Should Join Click2Sell.EU

Few days ago I have come across a new online marketing network called Click2Sell.EU.

While chatting with Click2Sell’s general manager and part owner Egidijus Andreika, I learned that Click2Sell is an all-in-one system for merchants to sell products online, run affiliate programs and recruit affiliates.

It’s also an affiliate programs network for affiliates to select and promote products from Click2Sell Marketplace and earn affiliate commissions.

And I list 6 good reasons why both merchants and affiliate marketers should also consider joining the Click2Sell network.

1) Click2Sell Allows Both Digital And Physical Products.

While ClickBank lists only digital products, Click2Sell allows vendors to sell digital products, physical products and subscription-based products such as membership sites.

You can view the details of each product in the marketplace, such as conversion rate, refund rate, affiliate sales percent, popularity and ranking history and many other info.

2) Advanced Affiliate Referral Tracking Protect System

Your affiliate commissions won’t be stolen, because the unique visitor tracking system protects you from unsavory merchants and other unfair affiliates.

For example, if you refer a first-time visitor to the merchant’s site, you will always be credited to the sale, no matter how others are also promoting the same merchant to the same prospect.

3) Advanced Tracking System For Sales Achievement

In my opinion, this is the one of the best parts of Click2Sell. The real-time reporting area of the control panel is very detailed. In fact, it is so powerful and specific-to-detail that it is split into 7 sub-pages:

General, Daily Report, Conversion Report, Referral Report, Refunds, Transactions, and Keywords.By analyzing the statistics you will be able to find out:

a) How many visitors and views (not to mention sales) your sales pages get.

b) What exact keywords are used in search engines by your sales pages visitors.

c) What websites are bringing the most targeted visitors. For example, 1000 visitors that were referred from website A bought your product 5 times while 1000 visitors from website B bought the same product 30 times. So you will know that advertising on website B is much more beneficial.

d) Absolutely the same is with advertising and PPC campaigns. By conversion statistics you will know which advertising method or PPC keyword is more profitable than others.

e) The number of affiliates that promote your products

f) How your referred users are doing and how much commission you get from them. You can create different tracking channels to test various advertising options somewhere else. You will not need to install complicated tracking scripts any more in order to track sales conversions.

4) 5 Payments Options Available For Vendors To Accept Direct Payments To Their Merchant Accounts Instantly.

Since Click2Sell deals with 3rd-party payment processors, payment is sent to merchants’ or business account immediately. There is no more waiting for weeks or months as you would with other sites.
Click2Sell coordinates sales via five 3rd-party payment processors including PayPal, Moneybookers, WorldPay, Authorize.net, and Google Checkout for merchants to run their affiliate program.

The “Mass Payment” feature for merchants with a few clicks to pay all affiliates at once. This feature is developed in much more convenient way than in some other systems where you need to generate txt files of affiliate payments, then upload it to PayPal and only then you could pay them. In Click2Sell system, everything is done in the member area.

5) No Setup Cost to Sell Unlimited Products

It’s free to setup your account and sell unlimited products at Click2Sell.

And ClickBank charges an initial fee of $49.95 to the vendor to sell products. They only allows you to sell 500 products per account and additional accounts cost $29.95 each.

6) Custom Commission Rates And Flat Fees

The commission rates are very flexible that merchants can pay up to 95% commission to affiliates on Click2Sell. However, Clickbank affiliates can only earn up to 75% commission.

And the flat fee is one of the major perks to sell your products with Click2Sell: there is no commissions’ percentage taken.

Click2Sell has simple fee rate, charging $1, $2, or $3 depending on the scale of transaction.Only merchants are charged this fee; affiliates never have to pay a cent since they are paid by the merchant.

As for ClickBank, they charge 1 USD + 7.5% for each transaction. So if you are selling a $200 product you will be charged $16 for each sale.

And here comes the offer from Click2Sell:

You can earn commissions by referring affiliates and vendors to Click2Sell. You can earn 30% of every transaction fee paid to Click2Sell once a sale is made by the merchant or affiliate you referred – as long as they stay active!

And for merchants, the first month is without absolutely any fees.

While the Click2Sell marketplace still is very small at the time of writing this, it may have a good chance to compete with Clickbank in the future. So I guess you still need to keep on eye on it.

Best Affiliate Networks of My choice

heart_shlp1.gifFirst you may need to forget some of the big names you may have ever heard of: CJ, Linkshare…

It’s because personally, I don’t have very good experience with them. They are either hard to use, or have some weird rules.

So I list some of my favorites here and it will be updated frequently. I hope this can help you to make choices which ones to join.

  • ClickBank – One of the most popular affiliate network, dedicated to digital products sold by thousands of vendors. In case you don’t know what an “digital product” is: Digital products include e-books, video tutorials, audio and software – basically anything that downloadable.
  • The reason I love Clickbank is the large commission on every sale. Since Clickbank specializes in information products (where the product vendors’ costs are tiny), so the commission is huge – often as much as 50-75%.

    One section of ClickBank that you will visit over and over again is their Marketplace, which can be found at clickbank.com/marketplace.html. The ClickBank marketplace lists almost all of the products that are currently being sold vendors so that you can browse through and pick one to start promoting. There is no need to apply to promote products with ClickBank, you just enter your ClickBank name and that’s it.

  • Maxbounty – Personally I think this kind of incentive affiliate network is a much better choice than some of the big ones like Amazon. If you sold a $100 value product for Amazon you get $10 in return at most. Luckily this situation changed since I found Maxbounty.They have some merchants pay you $20 to have people sign up for free trial offers. Those offers only require your visitors pay a very small amount of fee(Generally $1-$10).
  • Ourfreestuff – A little known affiliate network I get good results with. They have so many internation offers that if your site has more international traffic rather than US traffic, it’s a must-join.

    Complete Clickbank Refund Guide For Clickbank Affiliates

    refundI wrote this guide in Ezineartcles.com and I decide to put it on my blog to share it with you.

    If you’re a Internet affiliate that promoting Clickbank products, you will probably notice that there is a 90-day refund rule for each product.

    Refunds can kill your Clickbank sales efforts! Lots of sales means nothing if your referred customers request their money back.

    Refunds can not totally be avoided. What you need is to choose the right product when you start promoting. Calculating the average refund rate of the Clickbank product that you want to promote is a good way to decide if it is worth your time and efforts to promote.

    Visit the Clickbank Market Place, you are provided with some important payout stats. Every product at Clickbank has some information attached to it, which can help you determine whether it is a good product for affiliates to sell or not.

    %/sale: How much you earn as a percentage of the total price of the product, the commission rate.

    $/sale ($Earned/Sale): The average net amount earned per affiliate per referred sale in the past considering refunds and the Clickbank fees. With this number, you can have an inner look at the real performance of the products you want to promote.

    The average refund rate of a Clickbank product is: (Affiliate Commission – $/sale)/ Affiliate Commission = Average Refund Rate

    Affiliate Commission= (Product Price – Product Price * 7.5% -$1) * %/sale

    For example, you check the Clickbank marketplace and see the price of ViralPDF is $67, $Earned/Sale is 28.92, and the commission rate is 51%. So the affiliate commission of ViralPDF is 51% * (67-67 * 7.5%-1) =$31.10 and the refund rate is (31.10-28.92) / 31.10 =7.00%. Not bad in my experience.

    The average refund rate of Clickbank products is around 10%. With a 5% or less refund rate congratulations you find an excellent product. With an 11%-20% (or higher) refund rate you should consider promoting other ones.

    And you should notice that you can’t calculate the refund rate with any accuracy if a Clickbank vendor is selling different products with different prices. I will tell you how to check if this vendor has multiple products. Type payment URLs like this in your browser: http://1.vendor.pay.clickbank.net/, http://2.vendor.pay.clickbank.net/… If you get a 404 error on http://2.vendor.pay.clickbank.net then this vendor has only one product in the clickbank marketplace.

    Another factor is when vendors change their pricing too. Realize that if a vendor offers different products/price this isn’t going to work.

    Here’s a little tool for you. I just developed this Clickbank Refund Rate Calculator that can automatically calculate the refund rate, clickbank fees and the actual revenue of the clickbank product you are promoting.

    Check it yourself.
