If you're using Clickbank to help you process sales and payments, you can use AWeber's Clickbank app to have your customers added to your AWeber account.
Communicating with paying customers means that you'll have an audience that you know will be interested in what you have to say, and can be a great way to add value to their purchases by providing them with useful information and updates after they buy.
Note: Clickbank only shares the email address of the customer to the seller of the product. If you make a sale as an affiliate, you will not be able to capture customer's email addresses with this integration.

Scroll down until you see the Clickbank app and click on it.
You will then be taken to the Clickbank app page. Click on the Enable button.
In the settings for the Clickbank app, note the "Secret Key" and "Instant Notification URL". You'll need these shortly.
Now you'll need to log in to your Clickbank account. Once you are in the account click on the "Settings" tab. From underneath the "Settings" tab you will want to click on the "My Site" link.
Here, scroll down to the "Advanced Tools" section.
Click the "Edit" link.
Paste the "Secret Key" from your AWeber account into the Secret Key field here, then click "Request Access" next to Instant Notification URL.
In the area that appears, you will need to answer "Yes" to each of the 7 questions.
Click the "Save Changes & Request API Access" button.
Now you'll need to find "Advanced Tools" section again and click "Edit" once more.
Here, paste the Instant Notification URL from AWeber, and make sure you select 4.0 as the version, then click the "Save Changes" button.
Back in AWeber, you can now choose which list you'd like customers to be added to when they make a purchase - then you're done!
Adding Customers to Lists Based on Specific Products
If you'd like to have customers added to specific lists based on which of your products they buy, you will first need to make sure that each product you want to create a rule for has been purchased since you set up the Clickbank app.
Once you've gotten a first purchase for each of your products, you'll see a checkbox in the Clickbank app area, just below the menu from step 6 above. The products that have been purchased so far will show up when you check the box:
Choose the product and the list to which customers who buy that product will be added, then hit Add to save the rule!
Only one Clickbank account can be integrated with your AWeber account.
A confirmation message will be sent to subscribers added to your list in this manner. Make sure that you customize the confirmation message so customers know why they are being asked to join your mailing list.
Clickbank may take up to 2 hours to report new customers to your AWeber account, so do not be alarmed if you experience a delay in customers being added to your list.
