You have spoken and we listened. We’ve made changes to our analytics tool that will help vendors and affiliates who promote recurring billing products. Previously, it was not possible for you to differentiate between sales made through the ClickBank Order Form and rebills on recurring billing products you sell or promote. This made the conversion statistics (Hops Per Order, Earnings Per Hop, and Order Form Sale Conversion) difficult to work with when reporting on recurring billing products.
With our release on October 26, 2009, you will now be able to differentiate rebills from sales that occur on the ClickBank Order Form. We have added two new fields in analytics called Initial Sales Count and Initial Sale Amount. These fields represent sales made on a standard product and the initial sale of a recurring billing product. These fields also replace Gross Sales in the conversion statistics (Hops Per Order, Earnings Per Hop, and Order Form Sale Conversion).
Coming in the near future, we will also introduce new analytics reports designed to further inform our clients on their recurring billing promotions.
Vendor Tracking ID
Our October 26, 2009 release will also be the introduction of reporting by Tracking ID for our Vendors. This feature has been, and will remain, available for our affiliates.
