This is a huge shame…. Can you think of any possible work-around?


1. I could turn off free registration – so that it will reduce this issue going forward? (i would still have some issues with the already pre-registered people though)

2. Could I put some sort of link in the ‘sign-up purchase confirmed’ email that would direct customers to receive the automated upgrade from 0 to 1?

3. Maybe if option 2 isn’t possible, perhaps the next best thing would be for the email out to ask them to reply with their current log in name and receipt ID, so that I could manually update their account?

I guess the Paypal pro forms is not something that will work when using click bank?

Thanks again for your time….

Bruce! You fixed it – Thanks – I was too worried to admit I knew about all that stuff…. when I didn’t!

Fantastic – thanks….. The email is sending and the login works etc etc….. GREAT – thank you!

As I thought – I had already created my IPN Secret Key and pasted it in. The one thing I have NOT done is requested the instant Notification URL. When in clickbank I click to request this – it gives me a warning and asks me to make sure I know about all this extra stuff and also says this is not necessary and to not do it, if i don’t know what I am talking about (which I don’t) – Is it imperative that I complete the request for instant notification URL?

I had certainly done these in the past – but I will head in and do them again – Once completed I’ll run a test payment and let you know if it has fixed it – thanks.

Ok – submitted….. the ftp server i filled in had a spelling mistake – (just noticed as it was submitting) – it’s missing an ‘o’ – it’ll be obvious where – thanks….

It now all works fantastically – and your reply could not come at a better time. 7 hours and 45 minutes to my scheduled launch time!

Thank you so much….. frustrations have now been put to bed – I appreciate your perseverance and assistance.

I am replacing the “url” with the correct link to my custom order form, but it does not direct to it?

The link does work on it’s own however, just not when used as the output in the button short code – this is how it looks…..

[s2Member-Pro-ClickBank-Button cbp="1" level="1" ccaps="" desc="My Product Access / description and pricing details here." custom="" tp="0" tt="D" rp="1" rt="L" rr="0" image="" output="" /]

Hey Bruce, I am not sure we are on the same page here…. or maybe I am misunderstanding…..?

Affiliate stuff aside….

This is how I feel it should be working for me….

1. I use the S2 clickbank button generator to create a level 1 button that by default, sends people to a purchase page on click bank.
2. Once the payment has been made, clickbank re-directs the user to a register page for my site
3. After registering, S2 member acknowledges that they are now a level 1 member and upon using the password information that was emailed to them, they are able to log in.
4. upon logging in they are sent to member login page where they will find a link to the ‘hidden’ (level 1 member only) pages.

All of this works GREAT. no problem.

The only issue I am currently facing, is that within clickbank I have created a ‘custom’ purchase page that contains my own logo (supposedly I can get to it using the ?cb=*** query that I mention above). The S2 member clickbank button generator only directs people to the ‘standard’ purchase page and not the custom one. If I was using my own links that clickbank recommends, then it WILL send people to my ‘custom’ purchase page, but I am assuming will NOT then send them back to register to my site acknowledging that they are now a level 1 member?

Is there a way to use the S2 button generator to direct people to the custom purchase page on click bank ? If so how do I achieve this?

If i must use the clickbank link from my site to link people directly to my ‘custom’ purchase page in click bank, how do I then make my site recognise the fact that they have just paid to subscribe to level 1?

I hope this make sense, it all works great except i can not direct people to the custom sales page and must direct them to the click bank standard sales page. I look forward to ironing out this minor, yet frustrating issue. Thank you so much for your help.

(I would be willing to give you the links so we can figure this out – but do not want them publicly displayed before I launch – THANKS)

I feel that it is necessary….

The standard button code, sends people from my site to a purchase order form. (the standard order form). I have created a custom order form inside of click bank with my logo and such – in order to get this page to display when people click the buy now button, I must in some way get the ?cb=**** into the link…..

Once people have been to that order page, then it should send the person back to the member login page.

How is this possible?

I would be very grateful for your assistance.

Ok – so a little more on the ‘anchor’ topic:-

I have created a custom order form – the click bank site says the following:-

Adding the Custom Order Form to the Purchase Process
There is one step left to making your Custom Order Form active. On the My Order Form page, to the right of your existing order form template(s), you’ll see a column called URL parameter.
This parameter will look like: cbskin=#
You’ll need to copy that URL parameter, and then locate any Payment Links on your Pitch Page (for example, if you have a “Buy Now” button).
Payment Links have the following format:
You’ll add a question mark and then the cbskin parameter to the end of each Payment Link you have. The resulting Payment Link should look like this (your cbskin number will vary):

How do I implement this into the short code? I see this in S2 member –

output=”anchor” Output Type. Possible values: anchor = ClickBank® Button ( anchor tag ) URL w/ ?query string, url = raw URL w/ ?query string.

am I on the right tracks?

They shouldn’t need to do anything within the ClickBank account.

The product would be registered on click bank, which opens up my product to a collection of affiliate sellers. People should have access to my product and the ability to sell it on their sites without ever coming to mine. I will figure that side out separately thank you.

Are you planning on sending members to your Membership Options Page, or straight to ClickBank?

My membership options page will be my sales pitch – the only option on that page will be a ‘buy now’ (click bank) button. They will then make payment and then be directed to my ‘register’ page, followed by the ‘login’ page followed by the S2 member ‘login welcome page’. So I am hoping that when an affiliate wants to sell my product via clickbank that they simply direct their customers to my sales page (membership option page) allowing them to click my buy now button and therefore organizing the commission to my click bank affiliate seller.

Excellent – thanks – I was not aware that I could change the image using shortcodes – the image side of things is fixed! Thanks.

Regards the affiliates – I just want to get this straight, and I may need to re-read some info in the clickbank ‘manuals’, but what I am understanding is:

If a registered affiliate on click bank wants to sell my product, they would create a link to my sales page – using the HOP Link? Do they need to make that happen within their clickbank account? If this is the case and they do so, without me making any adjustments, then will I be faced with an issue of a customer not being re-directed to a register page, meaning they will not be recognised as a level 1 member?

Meaning: That I must follow the guidelines in before it will work properly?

If so, I understand that I must put the full short code for the button in to the coding, but what must I place in the

set output = "url"


Hope that makes sense? Thanks for your prompt response!
