What Is Clickbetter?

​Clickbetter is a company that offers two platforms, one for vendors to sell their products and one for affiliate marketers to find digital products to promote and earn a commission on in what’s called the marketplace.

first thoughts

​The free sign up was easy and straightforward, the only thing I didn’t like was as soon as you’ve signed up you’re hit with an upsell

sign up​That looks like a YouTube video doesn’t it. I thought it was so I pressed the play button, it’s not, it takes you to the Click .org page, which is what the circled text is about.

When you get there you realise the plans they have are going to cost you a fair amount $950 a year if you choose the extreme package, obviously you’re not obliged to purchase anything so I don’t.

Once we get past the upsell we’re presented with the dashboard, now while looking around I found something that made me question how up to date the site is.

Now unless I’ve gone back in time I’m pretty sure it’s the year 2018, in their news and updates the last entries were 2014, so I’m really not sure how much interest there is in the site, also one more point I’d like to make is that the links in there lead to……wait for it…… yep, so they’re pushing that quite a bit.[su_divider top=”no” divider_color=”#d0d0d0″]

the marketplace

​This is the place you need to go to if you’re looking for a product to promote, currently there are 11 categories all with sub-categories so there should be a really nice pool of products to choose from.

clickbetter categories

Out of these 8 sub-categories in arts & entertainment only 1 yes 1 has anything in it and that’s films & television.

​Trouble is all the 45 entries over 5 pages are all the same product.

The other categories fair a bit better, but in general there really isn’t a lot here. More often than not you zero results or just some crappy Forex signals.

The health and fitness niche is huge so I would expect this section to be rammed….22 lousy products to choose from.

Some that I went on to see if they were worth promoting weren’t even live anymore!

page not found

Some you couldn’t even see the sales page, you just had to submit a request to promote even though you had no idea what is was you’d be promoting.

This one here didn’t even take to the sales page, it just redirected me to the Clickbetter homepage…..what the hell’s going on?

What I Liked

​Now this is the part I usually tell you what it is I liked about the product or service I’m reviewing.

In all honesty the only thing I like about this is how easy it is to sign up and the fact it’s free, but bearing in mind how rubbish the site is they couldn’t exactly charge you to sign up could they.

What I Didn’t Like

​First off I don’t like upsells, period. So to see that this has them is a big no no for me, but looking at it from their point of view I don’t think their revenue is going to be that great having seen what I’ve seen on their site so I suppose they have to try and maximise their potential income somehow.

The lack of any real products, now I don’t mean that in the physical sense I know they only have digital products, no what I mean is the lack of choice, it’s very barren, it really is, and the ones they do have don’t always lead anywhere which in itself is extremely annoying to say the least.

Doesn’t look like it’s been updated in a while.[su_divider top=”no” divider_color=”#d0d0d0″]

How Do You Make Money?

​If you are lucky enough to find a product that you feel comfortable with promoting and it is still live then you’re going to earn a commission on any sales you make.

Now the amount of commission you receive is anywhere from 20% to 80%, but keep in mind that Clickbetter takes off 10% of the total sales for processing fee + $1 off each transaction before you get your commission.

Before you can get paid you have to reach a payment threshold which at the moment stands at $250. Usually all the big companies and even the smaller ones offer Paypal as a payment option, not Clickbetter, their options are check, wire, or ACH.

Now when you reach your $250 threshold you might think happy days and go to withdraw your dosh, but if you haven’t got 5 unique buyers minimum then you will have to wait until you have, to be fair that’s not a massive hoop you have to jump through, think about it, you’re going to need more than that if you’re getting say 65% of a $39 product.

Another thing to bear in mind is the $20 payment processing charge plus the 20% reserve which is held for 6 months to cover things such as refunds which again is strange because I found a lot of complaints form customers saying they hadn’t been refunded.[su_divider top=”no” divider_color=”#d0d0d0″]

What Are Other Saying?

​Well there is a lot of unhappy people out there for one reason or another and that is one of the reasons that this company only manages a big fat ​F ​on the Better Business Bureau

Final Thoughts

​If I had to sum Clickbetter up in one word it would be ‘poor’. The title of this review asks if this is a scam, no it’s not a scam but the site is so poor that you really don’t have any reason to have any sort of dealings with them in the first place.

If you’re interested in promoting digital products then there are much better site out there to accommodate you.

When you start digging into the site you’d be forgiven for thinking that it was only a few months old and that they are in the process of building up their client base, but it’s not, it’s an established site which has been around since 2012 so they’ve had time to get their act together they just haven’t which is really strange to me.

Would I use Clickbetter……NO….. and I wouldn’t advise you too either.

What Now?

In order to use sites like this, not this site obviously, you’re going to need to know how to get your site ranked in the search engines in order to be seen, just like this review you’re reading now. Do you want first page rankings?

I can show you how to get them, all you have to do is copy me, no seriously that’s all you have to do, copy what I do. Wealthy Affiliate will show you how.

  1. WOW thanks for your advice. I’m a disabled combat veteran and I was looking to make some extra money.Glad I read your column before I clicked on that click better shit. Boy I got scammed before with that bullshit advertising energy drink on the side of your car. They send me a check for 2500 I’m to keep 500 and no sorry it was 2000 send them 1500 and they would send me back the magnet sign goes on the side of your car. Bullshit check was no good I cash it but I didn’t send them shit they wanted me to send it to some Arab broad lol ended up having to pay the money back keep up the great work you are awesome lololol

  2. Have come across a set of people that are promoting “they have everything set up for you – all you have to do is push a button (on laptop or cell phone) or watch 4 videos” …. then you’re all set.
    Most of the time they start out charging $47 then offer different promo’s. I bought one for $17 & it said my statement will show “Clickbetter”.
    Then I Was contacted by a “coach”. I had other things going on that day so couldn’t find a good time to connect. Finally said Friday, & both person’s said ok, kinda.
    Friday has come & gone and Not a word.
    Have been looking for the site I signed up with After the purchase, can’t find & am finding other videos with exact same wording thru 99% & I have to buy all over again.
    Uhh No.

    Am Majorally disappointed & Angry at them
    Started looking up things & came across your site. Have downloaded your free guide & am going to read.

  3. I signed up for a daily e-mail site,, that uses Clickbetter. We are supposed to get $0.05 per click per day and we must reach $1000 to get paid from Clickbetter. On the upgrade page, which shows up after each days e-mail send, it states some very confusing information seeming to use the title Clickbank and Clickbetter simultaneously. When trying to get support, I get no response. I will never again sign up for anything that mentions Clickbetter!

    • Wow Susanne! $1000 is going to take some work! Do you think that Clickbank is somehow connected with Clickbetter? Or do you think they are they just using the name? Either way it’s great you’ve let everyone know of your experience, thank you.

  4. Thanks for the insight.

    Well unfortunatley I was not as lucky to not sign up and only investigated after my cc company kept denying the purchase and my account was not valid because of lack of payment. In other words I’m one of the poor mother f ers that got taken by this. Just trying to think that everbody out there aren’t a bunch of rip offs. Everything you do on the internet any more I feel is run by a bunch of scammers, That self made millionaire Anthony Morrison led me to this clickbettter sight, which makes me wonder ifs he has something to do with this.. E mail marketing, ever notice on craigslist them ads to good to be true never have a phone number and always want you to send them a email.. another scam, nothing is hones business about to fall into the scam to get rich category just to see how it feels to rip people off and spend money that I didn’t earn but told. and never even kissed when they got done.

    • Tim, I feel for you, I really do. I don’t know how some of these people sleep at night. I know what you mean when you say everything seems to be run by a bunch of scammers, it does feel that way doesn’t it. I really don’t know what the answer is to it.

  5. Hi i’d like to thank you for the update on this click better site as i almost signed up with them but decided to do a little background check only to come across you review.

  6. I happened to have purchased a few items through clickbetter, which I decided to get a refund for. I got my refunds although they are kind of tricky about the process because its hard to tell if you are requesting a “refund” or “contact with the vendor” since it’s the same form.

  7. Can you recommend a site that actually offers what they promote?
    I am glad I found your review, I found clickbetter today and they are charging a 37$ fee, I don’t know if they upgraded or its just because of the link I followed to get there.
    Steering away from this one, although I would like to find something like this that is legit.

    Thanks for your article

    • There are a number of sites out there like Clickbetter, the one most people know is Clickbank, but there are quite a few others including Amazon Associates. It depends really what it is you’re looking to promote, physical or digital goods.
      Places like CJ Affiliate by Conversant, ShareASale and Rakuten LinkShare are all places you look.

  8. I thought it’s some kind of “paid to click”, but then after finishing reading your article, I learned that it is not. With nature of business almost similar to those of Clickbank, I guess that’s the reason why they named this company Clickbetter. Maybe in their mind, “a better version of Clickbank”.

    While I salute innovative entrepreneurs that produce helpful tools or apps like this, my heart still belong to Clickbank. And since you labeled it “not recommended”, then I won’t pursue using Clickbetter.

    Another thing that I noticed… the commission cashout threshold is $250. Why that big amount? Did they intentionally put up that threshold amount so people won’t be able to reach payout?

    • Yeah the cashout amount is big and I think you’ve probably hit the nail on the head there Gomer, i definitely don’t think you’ll be missing out by not using them.

  9. Yikes! This is definitely an affiliate marketing set-up of the past.

    That’s especially a red-flag that the most recent posts seemed to be from years ago. I’m guessing the user-base has diminished a lot. And there are definitely more state-of-the-art and up to date affiliate marketing sites out there.

    The name reminded me of Clickbank, so I thought it would be legitimate. It doesn’t seem like a scam, but it definitely doesn’t seem to be helpful.

    Thanks for the heads up!
