Default Clickbank Affiliate URLs

Has anybody had any luck setting up Clickbank affiliate URLs that go directly to the Clickbank secure order form?

If it's due to the extreme length, you can always run them through your own redirect script or use the tracker to redirect it.

Example:

<?php
header("location:http://bigfatclickbank.com/url/goes/in/here/because/its/really/long");
?>

Save that as say cb.php, then make that, (cb.php), your destination url.

Is that what you mean?

Like in your example, I'd like my pop-up to go straight to this type of Clickbank page:

http://www.clickbank.net/sell.cgi?fr...oogle_Ads_FREE

My question is how do I do this and still get credited with my commission?

I asked a Clickbank customer service rep about this and he told there's no way I can get a commission by linking directly to the secure checkout URL.

His words:
------------------
There is no way for you to bypass the publisher's page and still receive credit for the referral. If you do not like the pitch page of a particular publisher, you may wish to consider promoting a different publisher that is more to your taste.
------------------

Is there any PHP magic that can be used so that pop-up will go to the publishers page and then quickly redirect to the buy now link on that page?

That rep is stupid.

A lot of "reps" and managers dont know many things that can be done with their systems.

How do you think a person goes from a sales landing page to a checkout page? By clicking a url link.

You are targeting the url in that link.
I would suggest to not talk to them about this.

Here's a video about bypassing the publisher's sales page and going straight to the order page - and you still get the affiliate commission.

Thanks for the video link, Aaron.

That's exactly what I was looking for. I just tested it and it took me to the proper order page.

My thoughts exactly. Some reps are new and have no clue. Others who know better are usually not reps anymore, they move up in the company or start their own or become affiliates. Also, I wouldn't talk to a clickbank rep about this due to the gray nature of it. Just ask them to confirm that they will accept contextual traffic, but never go into details.

I have 2 account managers I trust at all the networks I deal with. The rest, I just don't because I know they're blabber mouths. They get zero information about how I get my traffic.

I made no mention of the details. Had they asked me, I would have just told them I was making my own landing page.

Has this format stayed the same or changed?
