Do you consider running your own affiliate program?

So you're a merchant who carefully craft your own product, create the whole website for it, research the niche, look for various promotional methods to make your products and your name more and more known.

I also suppose, that you have an established website or sales-page where you successfully sell your products or service via Paypal, Moneybookers, Worldpay, or Google Checkout.

I guess that you have already thought that being able to let your products to be affiliated by other people would be a very nice addon to your website. Well made products are not only easier to sell for yourself, but they are very desired by other people who would really like to be able to promote your products for just a part of income from their generated sales.

Perhaps you have already tried some systems and networks which help you to find and deal with affiliates.

I'm sure that you have already faced quite a great dilemma: either some affiliate networks don't provide you any merchant tools, nothing (or just at very basic level) for selling "infrastructure", either they provide so basic affiliate management tools, that you actually feel like you're giving your product to them (affiliate network) to do whatever they want, not that they give you some affiliates who you could control.

Well there is also another option: you can always hire a programmer who could develop you your own in-house affiliate program mini-system. Having your own custom affiliate system is indisputable solution when you seek total control of everything and want the system to be as much integrated to your specific niche of your products/service as possible. BUT! You need TIME to develop such thing (and deep insight in planning various details and structure of your future superb mini affiliate system). Also you need to invest some MONEY in to development of such thing.
Do you have both?

I have mentioned two extremities: very custom your own affiliate program system and inflexible big affiliate networks.
Well, you have heard an old saying: "In many things the middle have the best".

Let's imagine that you have just decided to create your own in-house affiliate system.
What would you need from it?

  • To be able to decide whether you want your potential affiliates to be manually or automatically approved?
  • Maybe being able to track how each of your affiliate is doing?
  • What about not just basic tracking, but very detailed? Daily stats of each affiliate? Referral stats?
  • Some kind of incentive system? You would want to reward your well performing affiliates, wouldn't you?
  • Being able to communicate with your affiliates should go without saying, right?
  • Being able to give some promotional material to your affiliates?

Can you think of anything else?

Imagine combining all these things with your already established sales page or website where you sell your products. Feel the power of such improvement?

Let me tell you this:
All of above mentioned features in bulletin can be gained for free. You don't need to create your own in-house affiliate system, spend time and money for it. You also don't need to join other big inflexible affiliate networks which are very one-sided and requires some changes in your already established and well working website.

At Click2Sell.EU Affiliate Network you can get the flexibility of custom affiliate system and keep your selling freedom just like before.

And this article is just about one "module" Click2Sell system.

Recurring billing option was only working for those members who had an ability to accept direct credit card payments from their members on Click2Sell.EU product checkout form.

The most merchants on Click2Sell.EU use Paypal accounts to accept payments from their customers. They don't have real merchant accounts, so our members requested to make Paypal subscriptions option working for regular accounts on Click2Sell.EU.

How Click2Sell works and its advantages over direct selling using PayPal, Moneybookers, Worldpay, Authorize or Google Checkout

today let me tell you how Click2Sell system works in general as I keep getting questions about Click2Sell payments.

Click2Sell is a merchant platform with integrated affiliate network. The system coordinates your sales via Paypal, Moneybookers, Worldpay,, Google Checkout and other PSP (Full list of Merchant Account Providers supported by Click2Sell.EU) and allows you to run your own affiliate program.

That means that if you want to use Click2Sell for selling your products, you will have to have merchant account in one of above mentioned payment processors and use it.

Let me explain how the purchase of your product goes:

  1. A person (let's call him John, ok?) visits your website, read and analyze your product and see that it's a great deal. John decides to buy your product, so he finds buy-now button (provided by Click2Sell) and clicks on it.
  2. John sees Click2Sell checkout page where he can choose payment options you provided (e.g., Paypal, Moneybookers and Google Checkout). Let's say, he chooses Paypal.
  3. He is then redirected to Paypal checkout page where he enters all the necessary billing information. He is charged. Then John clicks on "return to merchant" button.
  4. The buyer is redirected to your provided thank-you page.

As you may see from this scheme, no money goes through our hands. All transactions are made in Paypal, Moneybookers, Worldpay, or Google Checkout systems. This means top security level. But not only that.

It also means that you get money directly to your merchant accounts in those payment systems. Money that you have earned from your product sales are not withheld anywhere and your earnings appear in your merchant account instantly after a successful sale.

I have mentioned "coordinating sales" in the beginning of this post. By saying that I meant that we send necessary information to payment processors (so your buyer could successfully buy your product) and they return us some data that we need.

Such exchange of information allows these things:

  1. You do not need to setup your products in both Click2Sell and in your merchant account of payment processor. It is absolutely enough to setup your product in Click2Sell only. Click2Sell will pass the necessary details to your chosen payment processor, so your buyer would buy and get the correct product.
  2. You can track your sales and statistics in much more convenient way than in Paypal, Moneybookers, Worldpay, or Google Checkout systems. What is more, it is especially useful when you have several merchant accounts (e.g., Paypal, Moneybookers and In this way you can see everything from one place and you don't need to login to each separate systems to see your status.
  3. You can also not just view and track the status, but manage some things from one place. For example, it is very useful with refunds. Once you get a request for refund, you can easily find the necessary transaction and refund it in Click2Sell. The system will send notification to your payment processor and arrange all the necessary changes.
  4. It's possible to run affiliate program what you simply can not do with just merchant account of any my mentioned payment processor. Click2Sell knows which your sale is made by your affiliate, so your affiliates can promote your products with confidence that you know their efforts and you will pay them for successful sales. In Click2Sell you can gather your affiliates in two ways: by recruiting your own people or by getting interest from regular Click2Sell affiliates (there are more and more of them). To make the gathering easier you can upload and offer your affiliates various promotional tools like articles, banners, email letters and so on. These things greatly improve "the taste" of your products to your potential affiliates.
  5. Click2Sell provides additional protection for your sales. Each sale is doubly verified in our servers, thus even the most advanced hackers will not be able to get your product without paying you or for less money.

These are just the major things what you get by using Click2Sell service instead of, let's say, simple Paypal buy-now button.

I hope that this short article has explained you the working system of Click2Sell.

Click2Sell is getting great reviews from super-marketers!

Dear friends,

yesterday was a great day for Click2Sell affiliate programs network as Rosalind Gardner has made Click2Sell review and published it in her newsletter and blog. I and my team are excited about her very positive opnion! This gives us a lot of energy to continue our work and provide you with even better service. Who's Rosalind Gardner? I think many internet marketers already know (and who don't know sooner or later will get to know) that Rosalind  is one of the most famous and widely recognized person in the affiliate marketing scene, perhaps among the top5 marketers. She is in internet marketing business for 10 years and has made great money in this field during that time. Many people consider her book "The Super Affiliate Handbook" as an affiliate marketing Bible for beginners. And YES! – she liked our system! :) Rosalind has mentioned a lot of Click2Sell features as great advantages over other systems. At the end of her review she just wrote:

"My hat's off to the Click2Sell developers."

I'll tell you again – this inspires me and my team to work hard in bringing you the best service and provide most useful merchant and affiliates tools for earning money online!

By the way, it's not the first time Click2Sell affiliate programs network gets a positive review by a super-marketer. Few months ago (when Click2Sell had just started its activities), Allan Gardyne also made a review to his subscribers about Click2Sell.EU in a favourably manner. You can read the review here. As you may already know, Allan is in internet marketing business for a long period and is "Earning a good living from affiliate programs since 1998". Just like Rosalind, A. Gardyne is also very well known among affiliate marketers. His website Associate Programs provides a very wide range knowledge of internet marketing, thus is one of the most visited websites about affiliate marketing. In his newsletter and blog Allan wrote very lengthy analysis about Click2Sell system, comparing it to Clickbank and Paydotcom in many areas. At that time Click2Sell had just launched, so he was a bit cautious, but eventually he recognized our ambitions as hopeful:

"It looks worth keeping an eye on."

The fact that very experienced internet super-marketers put in a good word about Click2Sell should mean that we made a great system. Of course, any feedback from any person is very valuable to us. We're getting many suggestions about current features improvements or new features development. We're analyzing all of them and set the priorities. I hope that soon the day will come when Click2Sell WITH YOUR HELP will be named as Dream Tool for Affiliate Marketer and Merchant! :-)

Well, that's enough of joy for today and i'm going back to our routine job.

By the way, if YOU have ANY idea how Click2Sell system should be improved or expanded, or maybe you would like to cooperate with Click2Sell in any way, please, feel free to contact us immediately. We're open to all suggestions.

Regards to all of you, my friends!
