Clickbank vs Amazon. Which Network is Better For Affiliates?


As an affiliate for each Amazon and Clickbank, I’d like to offer you guys a comparability of each networks on this article and inform you which one to go along with on your promotions. 

Also earlier than I get into the specifics of every community, let me shortly point out my affiliate historical past with each:

my amazon and clickbank affiliate stats


Here’s some fundamental details about every place’s alternatives:

Which has extra merchandise to advertise?

Easily Amazon, it has an exponential quantity extra. CB is good and I’d say has most likely over 10,000, however compared to the opposite place, there’s no query about it, it has FAR extra, thousands and thousands.

So as a possible affiliate marketer, know that you’ve extra choices there. And additionally, when you’d prefer to see extra proof of my success with CB, right here’s my $500ok report.

As for Amazon, listed here are some stories on my exercise there.

Which place gives higher commissions?

CB in MOST circumstances. You’re as much as 90% commissions vs as much as 10% on the opposite spot. 

However, whereas most merchandise you’d promote on CB would pay you extra, there are circumstances by which selling a product on the opposite spot can be extra profitable for you.

For instance, there’s much more odds of discovering a excessive ticket product on that community which makes the as much as 10% fee fee lead to some fairly massive paydays if you already know what you’re doing. 

Now there are additionally excessive ticket merchandise on Clickbank like membership applications equivalent to:


Does both place cost a charge for the checks they ship out?

CB doesn’t, however the different does (A $15 processing charge), whereas CB doesn’t and you may straight deposit with each networks from my understanding.

Now when you make $1,000’s, this doesn’t actually make a giant distinction, however a $100 paycheck all of the sudden taking place to $85 due to this charge might make individuals suppose twice. I usually make just a little bit on Amazon and having that $15 charge deducted every time I get a verify might be annoying for me. See particulars.

With CB, I by no means have that problem, however they DO take a small % of your total commissions (see particulars).

Which place is simpler for newbies to arrange on?

I’d say CB.

While I’ve to confess once I first began online marketing, that this was the primary place I joined, I actually had a neater time setting all the things up there vs once I joined the opposite program.

With CB, you pick a product, click on that hyperlink button, enter your nickname and growth, there’s your affiliate hyperlink.

With Amazon Associates, it’s virtually the identical factor, however there’s simply so many extra menu choices in your affiliate web page, and as soon as you discover the product you wish to promote, there’s other ways to do it, there’s a picture, there’s textual content, there’s an HTML code and don’t get me mistaken, it’s handy, however when you understand how every choice’s makes use of.

Since this is a query by which the beginner is the one on these networks, I’d say they’d have a neater time on CB.

Which place has stricter guidelines for it’s associates?


While I joined again a number of years in the past, I did hear from quite a few people who they usually don’t approve new associates and do set an preliminary gross sales quota for them too. I might be mistaken on this, so please appropriate me beneath if that’s the case individuals.

Which place has higher help?

Both are glorious right here.

You can get in contact with help fairly simply and get assist. I’ve personally been extra deeply concerned with CB on this regard and solely needed to name up Amazon Associates as soon as, however my expertise has been fairly constructive with each locations on this regard.

Which place has made me more cash?

CB. $500ok really (right here’s the story once more), however regardless of that, I don’t need you guys to suppose that this makes CB the clear selection. The cause I made a lot with this place was as a result of the product I used to be selling slot in completely with a promotion I used to be engaged in on the time, so it was the appropriate factor to do on the time, however I do additionally admit that I’ve leveraged Amazon’s personal fashionable merchandise to advertise CB merchandise via what I wrote up on earlier than right here

So whereas CB was the larger cash maker for me, it may well very properly be the other case for you.

Which place is my private selection?

It’s all dependent in your area of interest (right here’s 100), the merchandise you discover on every community which greatest suite your viewers and the way a lot you already know in regards to the product/area of interest. I choose to make use of each websites to be sincere.

Which place has extra top quality merchandise to advertise?

Amazon for my part, however this is as a result of it simply has extra merchandise on the whole to supply. Naturally the chance that there are extra top quality merchandise being there is apparent.

Which place is higher for earn cash on-line sort blogs/web sites?

CB on this case because it gives extra applications that pertain to this area of interest. I’ve actually reviewed like 5 or extra of those over time, however there’s FAR extra on that community than simply these (a spot like JVZoo gives extra on this regard).

Never the much less, there are precise applications on CB to advertise, whereas on the opposite spot, in terms of the earn cash on-line area of interest, the very best merchandise you’re certain to search out are eBooks and so they usually present small commissions.

Looking to hitch these locations? Here are their hyperlinks:

My recommendation is to hitch each locations and listed here are the reason why:

There shouldn’t be any sort of “team” mentality in terms of selecting certainly one of these locations, it’s a must to perceive that you simply CAN be a part of each, earn cash with BOTH locations and might even make the most of every community to advertise via the opposite.

Let me offer you some examples of how this will work:

-There’s many merchandise on Amazon which get a variety of searches on Google. I defined this in the very best vendor record hyperlink I offered above (you could find it right here once more) however these merchandise might not pay you properly or be that nice, by which case, going over to CB and discovering an identical product that pays higher and is higher in high quality can be higher to advertise, so I’d simply assessment the extremely searched Amazon product, however pitch the CB one.

-Just the other, I can discover a extremely searched CB product on Google, however see that it might value an excessive amount of for instance and promote an Amazon product in its stead whereas doing a assessment on the CB one. This situation occurs much less usually as there aren’t that many instances CB turns into viral.

-You don’t need to solely depend on product looking on each networks, you’ll be able to and will depend on greater issues equivalent to massive area of interest audiences after which work out if a CB or Amazon product can be higher to advertise to them.

Niches are extra evergreen sort approaches to earning money on-line. But do preserve a watch out for giant sellers and to probably promote the product on to an viewers which is aware of about it. I’ve made GREAT quantities of cash via this.

My closing ideas: To grow to be a profitable affiliate, do that:
