Clickbank Took Away Buyers Contact Data
most probably this has been discussed in a different post already but I couldn't find any discussion. As u might have recognized CB took away the contact information of the buyer (for affiliates). This seems to be a legal issue and when I asked CB they responded: "ClickBank has recently changed policies regarding the release of information to affiliates. ClickBank has taken these steps in the interest of protecting consumer privacy and to comply with payment industry standards..."
Ok anyway the trouble now is that affiliates cannot keep in touch with the buyer any more and promote more products via mlm. When I make a sale via follow up the same person is taken away from the list and being added to different list with a new email follow-up. Apart from that I offer the prospects Bonus material when they buy through my link, and since the buyer's info in CB doesn't show up any more I don't know whether the person have purchased or not. It would be rather impolite and unprofessional to ask the buyer to send a purchase conformation, wouldn't it?
I just wanted to know how u guys deal with this issue and if u have some neat solutions for the problems indicated.
thanks in advance
