    Wonderful Idea, This Forum - Thanks Adrian, Harvey and Tim! Very Happy

    I'm looking at a situation someone must have been through before. I plan to sell a Windows shareware application through CB. That means the "next logical step" for the web site visitor is to download a "lite" version of the software - *not* make a purchase.

    The software will gently nag its user to purchase a registration key that will unlock more features - this is the actual sale that will eventually take place. The program will (at the user's direction) launch the user's browser and connect to the Sales Page to make the purchase. This will culminate at a Thank You page that will display and e-mail a unique license key to the user.

    That's the scenario. Here are the questions for you CB experts:

    1. Is there any way to provide an initial "sales page" for affiliates that will avoid an actual purchase button or link, yet tag them as the affiliate of record and also satisfy CB's requirements for a Sales Page? (Introducing the key purchasing process initially would likely be confusing to the visitor: Is it really a free download? Or do I have to pay $20? What's going on?)

    2. Assume the visitor likes the software and decides to purchase a key within the 90 day time period for CB cookies. The browser will be launched and sent to a true Sales Page. Will CB still detect the cookie on the user's machine and credit the affiliate?

    Thanks in advance.

    Don,

    >>1. Is there any way to provide an initial "sales page"
    >>for affiliates that will avoid an actual purchase button
    >>or link, yet tag them as the affiliate of record and
    >>also satisfy CB's requirements for a Sales Page?


    Your initial sales page for affiliates need not appear
    in your ClickBank account. You just need to ensure that
    the visitor receives the affiliate cookie.

    easyClickMate can do this for you.


    >>2. Assume the visitor likes the software and decides to
    >>purchase a key within the 90 day time period for CB
    >>cookies. The browser will be launched and sent to a true
    >>Sales Page. Will CB still detect the cookie on the
    >>user's machine and credit the affiliate?

    It's actually 60 days but yes, CB will credit
    the affiliate with the usual exceptions (viz
    another affiliate does not take precedence, the
    cookies are not cleared )

    I more or less do this for ebookcompiler.com and coverfactory.com

    It works because when they follow the hop link they get to my pages offering them a free trial, and they also get a clickbank cookie

    The software contain a direct (non-hop) link to my sales page. If the customer buys, clickbank recognizes the earlier cookie and commission gets issued.

    The only case when an affiliate wouldn't get credit is if the customer took more than the cookie time limit to decide. This is not really a serious problem for me because long-before then the customer should have made up their mind to buy or move on to something else. Of course for you, it will depend on your level of nagging or shareware limitations

    I keep hearing people talk about this 90 day cookie. According to ClickBanks's FAQ http://www.clickbank.com/faq/ under the Hoplink System title, Question #2 it says that the cookie is a 60 day cookie.
    Am I missing something here or what? Question

    You are correct - people get it mixed up because
    it's a 60-day cookie and a 90-day guarantee period.
