affiliate ID changed when checking out

hi guys, before i go and stop promoting vince del monte's product, i just want to ask you guys this..

I noticed that i am not getting any hop count/click to that particular product even though gocodes says that i already have 54 clicks.

I click the link myself and the destination URL seems ok:
http://www.vincedelmontefitness.com/ind ... ffiliateID

but when i click the "Add to Cart" button, I see this in the bottom of the order page of clickbank:

[affiliate = otherAffiliateID]

hence, i'm loosing possible commissions from that traffic.

Any idea why this is happening? coz im about to ditch Vince del monte

I would call clickbank asap!
Have you tried your hoplink from another computer?
If not, try that and see what happens

good luck

Thanks mark for the reply.. I jsut checked it again here in the office's pc.. it now shows my affiliateID (maybe because, i submitted a ticket to them... wrong move while doing investigation)..

they changed the sale page from just a video.. i notice the anomaly when the sales page was that video and a long conventional type of sales page.

will monitor this closely... thanks for your suggestion.. i'll still let clickbank know about this.. good thing i took note of the affilateID of the one 'stealing' my click

Clickbank won't do anything
Affiliates change their links and pages all the time
Its a good way to get free traffic
When they do it, it reverts to their hop
It happens to me a lot and clickbank just say you have to keep checking
If the link changes from yours to another at times, it means they are scraping, ie only giving you a percentage of the clicks
Its common practice for affiliates and companies
So ditch em and find an honest one

are you just changing the username at the end?

like hop=otheraffiliatename to hop=yourownID

If thats the case, you cant do it that way, you need to use the clickbank cookied one:

xxxx.productid.clickbank.net.... this is the one that will cookie the computers, not the hop=?

Hi Jacaranda,

I checked on the link you are sending them too (http://www.vincedelmontefitness.com/ind ... ffiliateID). It says 'My Affiliate ID'. That looks to me as Vince del Monte's own affiliate link. Have you tried contacting him and asking him what their sales page is for their affiliates?

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

Hi Jacaranda,

I checked your link, and when I click add to cart, at the bottom of the clickbank page it says affiliate = none...I looked around for other sites promoting the same product, and clicked on their links, and found that clickbank is displaying their affiliate links at the bottom properly, so it might not be a problem with the site....maybe you can check your redirects?

I guess everything is already fixed. I hope that doesn't happen again. More sales to come!

Good Luck!
