I am thinking of switching away from ClickBank to make use of e-junkie's integration with PayPal and Google checkout. So far I haven't had time to really look at this in detail but I assume it should be a fairly painless migration process. I've been searching Google for some cold hard evidence on sales conversion rates between the two systems but have yet to find anything. Cart abandonment at the last hurdle because of a poor billing process is something that can really hurt sales.
Recently I have been sending out a few ebook samples for review, but it's still reassuring to do so with the PDF stamping feature activated. To do this with ClickBank I have to switch off billing temporarily and go through a mock test purchase using the end users name and email address, so they will be sent a download link to a stamped PDF file. Is it possible to do something like this if I move away from ClickBank?
It has become very apparent from the stats at ClickBank that while they may have a large number of affiliates, many of them are far from active, so it's not unusual to see somebody sign up and then deliver no traffic. The great plus point is that it's all automated, so I don't really have to think about it, but I would be very interested in hearing from both sellers and affiliates on their feelings regarding the pluses and minuses of each system.
