10 Alternatives to Clickbank

10 Alternatives to Clickbank

If you've listened to much of my training, when it comes to showing you how to find affiliate products to promote quite often I personally refer to the Clickbank Marketplace. The reason I do this is because Clickbank approves virtually everyone (unless you are from Nigeria or some other country outside their approval zones), and they have an amazing selection of products to promote with high commissions.

The other reasons are because most of the money that I make comes from Clickbank and also because they are extremely reliable with their on time payments, and I've built up a good relationship with them over the years.

However, in this blog post I want to share with you a list of other alternatives for you to consider as I don't want my own bias to prevent you from seeing that there is a whole world of affiliate offers to promote outside of Clickbank.

I think joining all 10 of these will be overkill, but billions of dollars in transactions are being made every year through these other networks, and many have fantastic offers that are not available at clickbank.

I have several affiliate millionaire friends who earn the majority of their income outside of Clickbank, and you may find some of these networks very useful to join.

In no particular order, here they are:

1. Rakuten LinkShare

Rakuten LinkShare offers affiliate programs from big brands, but you have to apply to promote them and it’s not always easy to get accepted. Best for those with some experience already. 

Rakuten LinkShare Marketing​Rakuten LinkShare has a lot of physical products to promote, including some big-brands. It's not the fastest to sign-up to, or the simplest to navigate, but there's a lot of helpful guidance as you go. 

You have to sign-up with each individual advertiser before you can promote their products. This draws out the process, but also demonstrates that higher-quality is important here.

One of LinkShare’s strengths is its deep-linking feature. You can read more about what deep linking is here

You can find more information comparing Rakuten LinkShare and Clickbank here

2. CJ Affiliate by Conversant

CJ Affiliate by Conversant is easy to use and full of useful stats. There’s a large variety of product types to promote. 

CJ Affiliate by ConversantCJ Affiliate is like Rakuten Linkshare in that you have to apply to individual advertisers, which takes more time than the instant acceptance of many other networks (such as ClickBank). 

However, it’s usually not too difficult to get accepted by most advertisers here; you just have to be a legitimate marketer with ethical practices. 

It’s easy to filter the products here by category, serviceable area, language, currency etc... This makes it very convenient for you to find the best products to promote quickly and painlessly.

CJ Affiliate has a very large variety of products to promote. If you’d like to know exactly how to use CJ Affiliate by Conversant, check out the guide in our free lessons here.

3. ShareASale

ShareASale is another well-known affiliate network with a lot of product options.

ShareASaleIt’s simple and easy to sign up for ShareASale, but it’s not the most straightforward platform for navigating the available features. Search for merchants using the "Merchants" icon at the top, then “Search for Merchants”. You can then filter via keyword, category, or a mixture of information in an advanced search.

It’s not easy to get started joining affiliate programs. You have to verify that you own your website before you can join any of them, which involves placing a key in your website’s header tag. 

A bonus with ShareASale is being able to add products to your "basket," which means you can save information about merchants or products that you’d like to apply for, review, or export later on.

There is quite a wide variety of both physical and digital products on this network. Find out more about how ShareASale directly compares to ClickBank here.


4. Market Health

Market Health is best for affiliates looking to promote physical products in health-related niches. Newbie friendly. 

Market HealthMarket Health is an affiliate network with a broad variety of health products. Some of the categories include general health, weight loss, colon health, men’s health, cosmetics, health and beauty, skin care, sports nutrition and others.

It’s super easy to sign up, and the site is extremely straightforward to use. You can browse by product category, you can look at their featured products or you can sort by country/language.​ 

If your website topic is anything to do with the health niche, then this could be a really great network for you to use. 

Check out the full lesson for more information on Market Health and how it compares to ClickBank.

5. Neverblue

Neverblue is a CPA network with a great reputation, but it can be difficult to get accepted. 

NeverblueNeverblue is a very well respected CPA, or cost-per-action, network. This basically means you get a commission when people go and perform an action, such as signing up or entering details into a form.  

Neverblue connects people who want traffic and leads with those who can direct it their way. Neverblue has an incredible reputation. Everywhere I’ve looked, people are very happy with the support and communication, as well as the commissions and integrity.

The trickiest thing about Neverblue is getting accepted. The site is very careful about the potential for fraud and will do a check on everyone before accepting them. In saying that, if you’ve got nothing to hide, just be honest and you’ll be fine. 

The site offers a wide variety of opportunities to choose from, and it's known for paying correctly and on time.

Find out more about how Neverblue compares to ClickBank here.


Another CPA network, less prominent than Neverblue but still reputable. tends to prefer intermediate to advanced affiliates, so if you don’t have much experience yet you’d probably be best to try one of the other networks first. 

To sign up with the site, you have to fill out an affiliate application, which the site will review within 2 business days. You'll get a call to confirm all of your information and be assigned to an affiliate manager. 

At this point in time, claims almost 2,000 live campaigns in a variety of categories, so there’s definitely a large selection to choose from. 

Check out the free lesson to see how directly compares to ClickBank.

7. JVZoo

A digital product network like Clickbank.

JVZooJVZoo is very similar to Clickbank in that it’s a network for affiliates and sellers based around digital products. It’s easy to navigate, and, just like with Clickbank, you can check out the marketplace to get an idea of the products you could promote before you’ve even signed up.

There are a lot of less-than-ideal affiliate programs on this network however. Some have terrible grammar mistakes or poorly-executed sales pages. 

This doesn't mean that you can't succeed with JVZoo, it just means you have to carefully filter through the products before you decide to promote something on your site. This is true of any network, but especially important here.

I like how Nathaniel explains it in his review, “Can You Make Money on JVZoo?,” so check that out if you’d like more information about this network.

Go to the full lesson to see how JVZoo directly compares to ClickBank.

8. PeerFly

A high-quality CPA network, which prides itself on being custom-built.

PeerFlyPeerfly is another CPA affiliate network, once again with high-quality offers and a great reputation, but you do have to apply and be approved. 

This verification process is a really good thing, even if it takes a little more time and effort. It means that if you do get accepted, you’re in good hands.

The cool thing about PeerFly is that the software is custom built, so you’re unlikely to experience downtime or other hosting related issues. 

You can apply to be a publisher from anywhere in the world. PeerFly has a convenient payment options. You can even opt for weekly payments, so you won’t be waiting around to get your commissions. The site offers PayPal, Payoneer, check, wire, or ACH transfers if you live in the US.

You can also access your stats on your phone via the mobile stats page. 

Find more information about how PeerFly directly compares to ClickBank here.

9. Amazon Associates

An enormous variety of products to promote, but low commissions.

Amazon AssociatesEveryone has heard of Amazon. It’s a big player in the e-tail and internet marketing games, and as an affiliate you can take advantage of this huge network. 

This is probably one of the broadest networks that you could promote from, with something for nearly any niche. It’s also extremely easy and straightforward to start promoting products.

The well-known name of Amazon means that there's a strong level of trust associated with buying from this network. This works in your favour when you promote the products here.

The downside here is that the commission rate is tiny, you have a much smaller window in which to convince people to buy (only 24 hours) and it's hard to get approved by the network. Ideally, you need a website which already has a healthy level of traffic to get accepted, and to make it worth your while.

You can find more information or sign up for Amazon Associates here

Check out the full lesson to see more about how Amazon Associates compares to ClickBank.

10. eBay Partner Network

Huge variety of products, but you need a website with quality traffic to succeed.

eBay partner networkeBay Partner Network is a very similar story to the Amazon Associates network. There’s a huge amount of products available for you to promote, and you get the added advantage of eBay's credibility: People know that it’s safe to buy from eBay. 

It’s hard to get accepted into this network unless you have a website with a lot of quality traffic, which is fair enough, as you need that quality traffic to earn a decent commission here anyway. 

You can learn more about the commissions you can earn from the eBay Partner network here

Check out the full lesson to learn more about how the eBay Partner Network directly compares to ClickBank.


So what should I choose?

Depending on your individual marketing requirements, you could choose one or more of these networks to promote from.

If you’re looking for digital products, Clickbank is actually one of the best networks. It has high commission percentages and a wide variety of products to choose from, many of which are good quality. 

If you haven’t found what you’re looking for with Clickbank previously, I’d try using the gravity filter to find the best niche and products for you before giving up. You can find a guide on how to get the most from Clickbank here

Alternatively, if you’re looking for physical products, rather than the digital products of Clickbank, the best options are:

If none of the above are calling to you, or you just have more of an interest in CPA marketing, the best two networks to apply for are Neverblue and PeerFly

If you’ve got a lot of experience and traffic or a large social following, you may wish to try your hand with promoting via Amazon and/or eBay. It’s just about having the right audience for promoting products from these well-known sites.

If you'd like to compare networks directly for yourself, try this table as a guide:

Add This to My Website

You’re not restricted to any one network, so you might as well try any that seem like they could be of use to you. 

There are many other networks than the ones that I've listed above, but these are the ones that either I know others are being hugely successful in, or I have met personally with the networks and know of the quality of their organization and offers.

I'm interested in your comments, so let me know of your own experiences and opinions below.

    Hi Mark - really enjoy being an Affilorama ezine subscriber - have been cutting back on my emails but don't ever want to miss your content, affiliate product launches, upcoming webinars etc

    TrafficTravis is an awesome free SEO software also and I love the brand name & ease of use

    I am just getting started with CPA and want to know if you rate this method of traffic generation easier and more cost effective for affiliate marketers on a low monthly advertising budget (EG £100 a month) ?

    Also veering off a tangent I could use your help with making the right choice of Auitoresponder for my business as I am torn between four at the moment, TrafficWave, AWeber, GetResponse and AutoResponsePlus (a server side install) but TrafficWave is offering 10 level affiliate commissions where as AWeber only has 1 but their email deliverability is superior people say
    What is your opinion on which autoresponder offers the best all round deal and reliability?

    On the subject of this excellent blog article by the way I highly recommend Clickbank to anyone starting out as an affiliate marketer and I have registered with Plimus too - but my friends use PayDotCom and I think it is easy to create your own affiliate program with them and the ease of use is better than Clickbank but Clickbank offers all the best digital info products from the top super affiliates and product creators so has to be number one for that reason alone.

    Can I also suggest to your readers to have a look at PayDotCom and AffiliateJump (mike Filsaime and Joe Holland - a one stop advice & CPA website where I think you can register via them to get accepted on over 90% of CPA networks)

    Am I also right in thinking that CPA networks are hard to apply for for newbies as don't you have to be getting good solid traffic stats to their affiliate managers?

    Look forward to your next blog post and ezine post!

    but is it this 10 Alternatives to Clickbank suitable to CPA?

  • Reply David • 2114 days ago

    Mark, Good post. I am currently using clickbank and Market Health on my website. I'll give you my impression of them when I make my first sale. There are many affiliate networks available. Also if you find a product on a site that you want to promote that is not in an affiliate network very often you can contact them and make your own affiliate arrangement.

  • Reply Douglas Anderson • 2114 days ago

    EVOBILLY, LEE, ALEX - I would like very much to see your web sites. The first two of you can't even write a coherent sentence with proper punctuation and capitalization, and the last one doesn't know what "lowercase" means. To all 3 of you: when you write an incoherent response, nobody, and I mean nobody, is going to respond in any way to help you.

    MIKE LARTER - I use Aweber and have never had a problem with delivery of e-mails. I do have a problem with their on-screen editor, which I loathe, and with the fact that they do not issue a follow-up e-mail if a person does not click within a reasonable period of time on the "Please confirm" link in the e-mail sent in a double-optin. I have never been able to get their templates to work properly, so I create my HTML e-mails on my own computer and then upload them to Aweber. Then I have to go through and correct the alignment on each paragraph, as their editor has a bug which they have not fixed. I also continually get errors with Aweber and Firefox saying my session has expired; this doesn't happen with IE, nor with any other web site. I have noticed that more and more IM people are sending me stuff via GetResponse, so maybe it's time for me to switch.

    MARK LING - Thanks for being generous with your time and information; much appreciated.

    Thanks for the post and the list. ;)

  • Reply Brian Gothard2113 days ago

    Excellent post, Mark. Thanks for the information. I just wanted to throw in my two cents' worth.

    I use LinkShare pretty extensively. Many of their programs provide an RSS feed that is easily incorporated into a WordPress site for automatic updating via readily available plugins. Easy for a less technical person to set up and use. Make sure to subscribe to their Deactivated Advertiser feed, though. They seem to have a few vendors who let their accounts lapse too often for my taste. That means if you send traffic to them during their down time, you do not get paid. Just something to be aware of and watch out for.

    I also use ShareASale. Their data feeds take a little more work, but the vendors are reliable and steady.

    I have a few Commission Junction campaigns running, but mainly when I need a specific, high profile vendor. They handle a lot of large mainstream companies.

    Thanks Mark for the info. Let me try and be successful with one avenue first and then I'll tackle these avenues :-) Thanks.

    Paul, you are going to feel overwhelmed because the info that Affilorama is giving us all is overwhelming!

    If you are very new, I suggest you first forget about making money quickly and set yourself up to obtain all the knowledge you can possibly get. All that knowledge is contained in this Affilorama site. Work through the whole site step-by-step, even if it takes you a couple of weeks. The picture will soon become clearer and when you are ready to start the process and you still get stuck, use an appropriate forum to get help. Nobody will laugh at you.

    Also consider signing up for Affiloblueprint or premium membership which will give you more guided and step-by-step instructions and plenty of tools to use. I can assure you it is worth every penny.

    Good luck

    Thanks for posting these alternate sites Mark. I think everyone starts out using Clickbank, but if you want to get serious about your affiliate marketing then you really need to branch out and find other products to promote that aren't being hammered by the mainstream on Clickbank.

    For me CJ and ShareASale are great places to find products to promote. But I will now also have a look at some of the other places mentioned in this post.

    I own over 1000 domain and have working to try to develop a domain buying and selling business for 3 years now. I have come to the realization that website development is the next step.

    I have for sites, relatively professional that I have published and have started ClickBank on one of them.

    Not a sniff. Nothing. Not one sale. I am beginning to think that this "affiliate market" promise is another hoax perpetuated by the few savvy, first to the trough marketers.

    I called Click Bank several times and each time I am more disappointed that the time before.

    I repeatedly ask the question, "Are there any sites owned by successful Affiliate Marketers that I may go to to see what works regarding text and page layout with ClickBank Affiliate Product Ads?"

    Each time I get the response, "I don't know, we don't track the successful sites."

    I then have asked the question, "Do you have record of some of the very successful Vendors and Affiliates?" and "Are there some Affiliates and Vendors that are very successful?"

    Then, is there examples of how there have become successful?

    Again, no.

    Very strange.

    This evening I typed into the Google Search Bar "example websites of click bank affiliate websites."

    What is given is page after page of sites offering to sell you a "Sure Fired" 47 or 29 site affiliate package that will net six figure passive income annually.

    Just Hype and Buullshiit.
