Integration Guide for Clickbank

Tracking with Clickbank can be difficult given the unreliability of "pixels" and lack of a a basic server-to-server postback URL.

To track Clickbank sales well, you need to use their IPN tool - whether you are an affiliate or a vendor.

Firstly, log into Clickbank and head to Vendor Settings > My Site:

Yes, you should go here even if you are an affiliate, not a vendor.

From here, scroll down to the Advanced Tools box and click Edit:

Head to the integrations section of FunnelFlux Pro and generate your IPN info under the Clickbank area.

You will need to set a 16 digit alphanumeric secret key e.g. 123ABC456DEF0000 -- this is up to you.

You will be able to copy the IPN URL from this page too.

In Clickbank, you can now fill out this section:

Note: use version 6.1. We may upgrade to offer support for 7.0 later. Click Test IPN to ensure Clickbank is happy with the settings.

If you find the test fails, try the following approach:

  1. Load your IPN URL in your browser directly. It will say method not allowed (expected).
  2. Now save your IPN settings in Clickbank.
  3. Now go to edit it again, and click test IPN.

If that works, great! Clickbank's tester here can be a little funky.

Now, in your offers in FunnelFlux:

  • If you are an affiliate, append ...?tid={hit} to your Clickbank URLs
  • If you are a vendor, append ...?vid={hit} to your Clickbank URLs.

And that's it!

This IPN integration should handle conversions as well as refunds, and also upsells.
