Hi,

Yes, you can make a purchase through your affiliate link. However, you need to make 4 more sales to get your discount. Clickbank's accounting policy says that you need to make sales from 5 different credit cards to get your commission. One of the Affilorama forum moderators, Wollowra, posted this as an answer to a similar question:

===============

Clickbank's Customer Distribution Requirement

ClickBank will withhold payment of any account balance until the following criteria is met:

* Sales made with 5 or more different credit card numbers; and,
* Sales made with two different payment methods (either Visa, MasterCard, or PayPal). Note: PayPal purchases do not count toward the minimum 5 different credit card numbers.

This requirement is in place to help prevent Affiliates from abusing the ClickBank Affiliate program by using their accounts for the sole purpose of fraudulently collecting rebates and/or discounts on their own purchases.

Once you have met the Customer Distribution Requirement, your account will begin issuing payments normally, in accordance with our Accounting Policy, beginning on the next payment issuing date.
