Clickbank has competition - that's good!

"Move Over ClickBank, There's a New Kid in Town: Click2Sell"

By Merle

Are you frustrated with Clickbank? For years now they
have been the "reigning champion" when it comes to
payment processing with a built in affiliate network.
Clickbank makes it easy to sell your digital products
and take advantage of their affiliate army, numbering
over 100,000. It's simple really - you let others sell
your products and they earn commission.

Recently a new competitor has hit the scene,
They're a company based out of Europe who have put together
a service that includes many of the features that others
are lacking.

No matter if you're just a merchant (seller), or you're
a "super affiliate" making a living online, Click2Sell
incorporates some wonderful features and benefits. Let's
take a closer look:

Merchants can sell digital or material products, even
subscription based services. Your products can be sold
in U.S. dollars, EUR or GBP. Payments are received instantly
to your Paypal, Worldpay,, Google Checkout
or Moneybookers account.

Once registered, you can be up and selling right away.
There's no "waiting period" for approval of thank you
or sales pages. You set your own pricing, no maximum
price points, and it's easy to add new products.

Your digital products are uploaded to Click2Sell's server
and protected from unauthorized access. The thank you
pages shown to buyers are encrypted so they never know
the actual download location. All download links expire
within 72 hours of purchase, which eliminates the problem
of them being shared with others.

The built in affiliate program allows you to easily pay
any affiliate commission with a few clicks, using either
Paypal or Moneybookers. You set the commission rate you're
willing to pay, up to 95%. Affiliates can be automatically
accepted or you can choose to manually approve them. This
feature allows you to ban those you don't want promoting
your products.

Merchants are also given a choice to show affiliates the
conversion rates of your products in the marketplace, or
not. And, of course they've built in powerful statistics
and tracking which reports on the number of active affiliates,
and their performance. Also, it tracks product conversion
rates for different keywords, a product's rank and history
of changes in the marketplace and much more.

Hang on to your seat because the benefits and features
offered to affiliates are just as exciting. When searching
for products you wish to promote, you can search through
the marketplace using various criteria such as category,
rank, amount earned per sale, conversion rate, popularity
and more. This is a great way to find just the products
that meet your needs.

The built in advanced tracking reports allow you to see
how many people clicked on your affiliate link, and the
number that actually purchased. See how much you've
earned in "real time". Very nice. Even if they don't
purchase right away, if someone clicks on your affiliate
link and goes back to purchase within six months, you'll
still earn your commission.

Any monies earned in a month are paid out in full
the following month. No money is held back in a reserve

So, how much is all of this going to cost you? Don't
faint, but it's totally free to set up an account, no
matter if you're a merchant or just an affiliate.
Merchants are charged 1.00 to 3.00 USD on each sale.

Do yourself a favor and check out their website for
