    Hi,

    I am in the process of putting together my first membership site which I intend to launch in January. I've chosen Clickbank to handle my payment processing and affiliate sales. I have some big questions that I couldn't find answers to on the Clickbank site, nor through a conversation with a Customer Rep yesterday.

    Here's my rub, and I can't be the only one to have this concern/question...

    - I created my sales and thank you pages that comply w/Clickbank terms.
    - I have my preferred pricing in mind (Recurring product rate at $29 for 3 months. Premium rate at a 1-time payment of $75.)
    - I'm building my affiliate marketing materials. (not required)

    I want to submit my product for approval now. But if approved, I do NOT want it to go live in the marketplace. Why not? Because I still want to go through a 2-week pre-launch process to create some buzz. During this time, the sales page wouldn't be public. I'd just collect email addresses from prospects.

    Then, I'd flip the switch, and make the sales page accessible to the public, and be in full launch mode. That is when I'd want my product to be live in the Clickbank marketplace, but not before.

    This seems to be how the big guys launch products. Is it feasible if I'm using Clickbank?

    Becauses the customer rep said that once the product is approved, it is immediately live in the Marketplace and the only way to discourage affiliates is to set a 1% commission. That seems silly!!!

    Thanks in advance

    I think he meant if you had specified a HopLink Target URL and designated
    the categories where you wanted your entry to appear.

    But you don't have to do this until you are ready.

    Unless Clickbank has changed the marketplace rule, your product won't be live in the marketplace UNTIL you've made at least 1 sale.

    You might want to check with the clickbank rep about this.

    Best regards,
    Adrian

    Thanks Harvey! Now that you mention that, I remember reading that getting listed in the Marketplace when the product first goes live is ideal, but optional. Whew, my brain feels a lot more relaxed now.

    Hmm, that works out for what I want as well, but I might double check on it. Seems like you need to know the right way to ask questions.

    Glad I discovered this forum - thanks for the quick replies.

    No - the rule did change
