If you're using Clickbank to process sales and payments, you can use AWeber's app to automatically add your customers 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.
Step By Step Instructions
- First, you'll need to enable the Clickbank app in your AWeber account. Select "Integrations" from the vertical navigation area on the left side of your AWeber account.
Next click on "Available Integrations" and use the search-bar to search for and then select the "Clickbank" icon.
Next, click on "Connect Integration."
- In the Connection settings for the Clickbank integration, note the "Secret Key" and "Notification URL." Click "Copy" next to the "Secret Key" to copy it to your clipboard.
- Next, access your Clickbank account. Once you are in the account, click on the "Vendor Settings" tab. From underneath the "Vendor 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.
- Then, you will need to go back into the Clickbank integration settings and copy the "Notification URL."
- Next, 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 7.0 as the version, then click the "Save Changes" button below.
- Back in AWeber in the Integrations area, you can now choose which list you'd like customers to be added to when they make a purchase.
Add any tags you want in the "Add Tags" text-box, separated by commas.
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 integration.
Once you've gotten a first purchase for each of your products, you'll see a checkbox in the Clickbank app area. 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 automation" to save the rule.
Only one Clickbank account can be integrated with your AWeber account.
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.
Test purchases (which includes any purchase for $0.00) will not add a subscriber to AWeber. Funds must be transferred in order to have a purchasing customer added as a subscriber to your list.
