    Clickbank does not allow the use of cash, rebates, or voucher offers by affiliates as incentives to purchase Clickbank products. However, Clickbank does allow non-monetary gifts and incentives.

    The main point is ClickBank does not allow you to differentiate from other Affiliates for the same products by competing on price.

    ClickBank's policy is a little fuzzy, but many top-earning affiliates offer bonus packages to customers who buy through their affiliate links. Sometimes on big launches you see the affiliates competing to offer the best bonuses. CB seems to be okay with this as long as you don't offer a cash rebate or anything equivalent to cash. Usual bonuses are digital downloads, like extra ebooks or videos.

    The method of offering a unique bonus that complements the main product was covered pretty thoroughly in last year's best-selling CB affiliate manual, Affiliate Project X.

    One big problem with offering bonuses is that if you want to give your customers decent service, you kind of have to stay glued to your computer 24/7 so you can receive emails from the customers, manually verify that you actually got credit for the order and then send the bonus download info to the customer.

    So if you're going to offer bonuses on CB products, you should know that there is a service that automates the whole process. It creates a web page where the customer can enter their receipt number, which it then looks up to see if it's on your commission report. If so, it automatically directs the customer to your bonus download page. If not, it doesn't.

    Here's where you can find out more about Affiliate Bonus Manager, the automated bonus delivery service for ClickBank affiliates.

    most cpa/cps networks won't allow for it. Same with CB. Most of the advertiser there don't make any money off the 1st sale. They have to make their money on the upsells/follow up contacts.
    If the person only bought it because you gave them something for free. They are quite unlikely to buy any of the upsells. Possibly returning the book, as most have a 30 day guarantee. With regards to ebooks/products from clickbank. Generally doesn't work out well for anyone. Just my 2cents.


    If you are trying to promote something you own with it. Then use another merchant processor outside of CB. See how it goes. Will need to host your own checkout page.
