ClickBank Trust Badge Implementation

A few weeks ago we officially launched the ClickBank Trust Badge. The launch has gone very well, and the Trust Badge has already received more than 2 million impressions.

Now with the initial launch completed, many of you have asked about the deadline for implementing the new Trust Badge.

We have set Tuesday, December 15, 2015 as the deadline for including the Trust Badge JavaScript code on any page in the marketing funnel where a ClickBank payment link is present.

You can access the Implementation Guide by visiting this link. To get an in-depth refresher on the ClickBank Trust Badge, visit our official blog post from a few weeks ago.

We have appreciated all of your feedback and the questions you have raised about the implementation process. Here are a few specific answers to some of the top questions we have received:

1. The Trust Badge JavaScript must be on any page where a ClickBank payment link is present.
2. The Badge cannot be hidden behind a timer that displays after a defined period of time. For example, if you use a Video Sales Letter and pop a ‘buy now’ button after a few minutes, you cannot wait until that point to display the badge. It must be present from the time the page loads.
3. The ClickBank Badge must not be hidden behind any other windows, frames, CSS styling or otherwise forced to be invisible on the page; it must display clearly on the page.

We recognize that performance marketers are keen on testing and optimizing for conversions in the funnel. We encourage trying different variations of the color and placement options. If you use vendor tracking IDs (VTIDs), you can see performance within the ClickBank Client Analytics screen. Please keep in mind that changes you make to the appearance and placement of the Trust Badge require approximately 30 minutes to one hour to propagate through our network.
We really appreciate your feedback. If you find any issues as you use the ClickBank Trust Badge, please report it directly to support@clickbank.com.

Plus, we know there are various types of websites being used throughout the ClickBank ecosystem. We have done extensive testing on our side, but please let us know if you experience any problems with the Trust Badge on your site. We will make it a priority to deploy any needed fixes quickly.

If you have any questions, big or small please let us know. We look forward to doing all we can to help make the implementation as easy as possible
