Welcome to my review on ClickSure
If you have just stumbled across this website, my name is Gavin Woolley and I’m an internet marketer. In a nutshell, I make money by promoting other peoples products on the internet and have been making a living this way for about the last 6 years (you can read more about me by going to the ‘about me’ page on this website).
Here’s what I basically do for a living in 3 simple steps…
Now roughly 2 years ago, I came across an alternative Affiliate Network to ClickBank called ClickSure. So I joined their Affiliate program and started promoting the offers available in their Marketplace. I can say that to date I have made a fairly good income from promoting offers in ClickSure, just as I have done OK from promoting offers in ClickBank and other affiliate networks.
So recently when I was doing some research on the net and I came across some negative reports about them; lots of people have said that ClickSure isn’t legit, or even fake, so I felt compelled to speak up and share my own personal experience…
As someone who uses ClickSure to market other peoples products I have never had an issue with them. Some of the products I promote, I have also gone on to purchase. Some of the products are good, some of the products aren’t that good. But the way I view it, is if someone is trying to tell me I am going to make up to $1,000 in 15 minutes, well let’s be honest, that’s not going to be right now is it?
I can safely say that if I came across a way to make $1,000 in 15 minutes, I certainly wouldn’t be sharing it with the rest of the world! I would keep it top secret and use it for myself and my friends only!
So whilst these products didn’t provide me with the instant results that they advertised, they did help me to learn new techniques on how to make money online. Most products cost less than $50, so if I only take one new marketing technique away from each product that I’ve purchased, that in my opinion is still money well invested. Take an idea or concept from each of these programs, put them together and you have a formula that could potentially help you to increase your own marketing results.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m in no way making out that ClickSure are perfect. The fact is they are still a relatively new kid on the block and they still have some way to come to be anywhere near as big as ClickBank. However from my experience, they are fast becoming a good alternative to other more established Affiliate networks and I wanted to chip in with my 2 pennies worth. Particularly as there are a lot of bad reviews online about them, which whilst many of the claims may indeed hold water, other reports are just nonsense.
And I hate it when I read a review that simply just doesn’t provide correct and accurate information about a product or service!
So, in my review below, I will attempt to go into more detail about ClickSure and provide you with the answers you are searching for about the network based on my experience as a customer, researcher and internet marketer.
So Who Are They?
ClickSure is owned solely by ClickSure Payments and is an international company that has a presence in multiple countries across the globe. They focus on international processing solutions from their head office in China and through key partnerships in Mauritius, The United States Of America and The United Kingdom.
What Is ClickSure?
Well to put it simply, ClickSure.com is an online network that connects Sellers and Affiliates, so they can work together to drive more business and sales to an offer or service online.
There are 3 types of people who use ClickSure; Sellers, Affiliates and Advertisers.
Sellers will use them as a payment solution for their products that they wish to sell online. This makes the process of taking payment for orders hassle free and means that a Seller doesn’t have to go through the stress of setting up payment processing themselves. By using ClickSure they are also able to take advantage of the 100,000 plus active affiliates on the network who can promote their offer or service to a wider audience.
Affiliates will use them to find the internet’s latest ‘hot’ offers to promote. Their Affiliate program is free to join and the set up process is simple and straight forward. They also have an outstanding reputation of paying their Affiliates on time (I am an Affiliate myself and can say from personal experience, that I have never had any payment issues to date). The Affiliate Marketplace also boasts many evergreen offers that you can choose to promote, resulting in steady Affiliate commissions into your account.
Advertisers will use them purely to take advantage of the 100,000 plus active Affiliates on the network. It’s easy to set up an ad campaign with ClickSure and you aren’t limited with your processing options. As an Advertiser on the network you can either choose to process using ClickSure’s payment solution, or you can use an alternative should you wish too.
The only other type of person to use ClickSure would be a Customer. This is any person who has purchased a product that they process payments for. ClickSure, unlike some other online marketplaces, takes customer experience seriously and works closely with Affiliates and Sellers to ensure that their Customers are treated in the right way.
The ClickSure Promise
To highlight just how much ClickSure cares about customer experience and satisfaction, they openly advertise that every product that they process payments for, is covered by their exclusive 60 Days Money Back Guarantee. This guarantee is known as the ClickSure Promise. You can read more about the ClickSure Promise by clicking here.
All Sellers must comply with the ClickSure Promise if they wish to use them as a payment solution. This ensures consumer peace of mind when purchasing a product online through ClickSure. It is also worth noting that ClickSure doesn’t own the products that they process payments for. The products for sale through them are owned by the Seller, who as I have mentioned above simply just use ClickSure to take payments from their customers.
A Wide Variety Of Products
The products available to purchase through ClickSure range from ‘How To Make Money Online‘ offers, all the way through to Health & Fitness, Dating, Betting Systems and many more types of offers.
The common theme for all products sold through the network, is that they are all digital goods. This means that you get instant access to your purchase, whether that is an instant download, or access to an online membership site. This is great for the consumer, as you can use the product you have purchased immediately and don’t have to wait for any physical deliveries.
If you have purchased a product through them and need to contact the Seller of this product, or ClickSure Support directly, read my post on how to do this by clicking here.
So Is ClickSure A Scam?
Well in my opinion, no! As an active Affiliate on the network and also as a frequent purchaser of make money programs, I have never had an issue with them. In fact, I have found them to be nothing but helpful when asking for assistance.
Obviously this is my personal experience and I have read reports online of some customers having issues with them. However, they offer a 60 Days Money Back Guarantee… So if you aren’t happy with a purchase that you have made, you can get a refund from the Seller. That doesn’t sound like a scam to me!
As an Affiliate with them, my commission payments have been paid to me on time, every time since I have joined the network… Again, I doubt they would pay me my Affiliate commissions if they were indeed a scam company.
So why are there complaints on the internet about ClickSure?
Well I decided to look into this a little deeper. Comments that I came across online where I found someone had a complaint about them generally boiled down to the same 2 issues:
1. The Seller didn’t respond to the Customer’s email asking for support
2. The Customer thought that ClickSure owned the product instead of the Seller
So I contacted some of the people who had experienced the above 2 issues and this is what I discovered…
The Customers who had not received a response from the Seller concerned were refunded by ClickSure after 8 days, although the actual refund didn’t appear in their bank account until 10 days from the 8th day. This is because refunds apparently take up to 10 days to go back into your bank account.
Although this process may appear to be a little lengthy time frame wise, it did allow the Seller plenty of opportunity to respond to their customer’s inquiries. For me it also demonstrated that ClickSure, whilst giving the Seller an opportunity to assist their customers, helped protect the consumer by enforcing an automatic refund on any transaction where a Seller blatantly didn’t care about their customers.
Some of the people I spoke to thought they had purchased a product that was owned by ClickSure! So when a Seller didn’t reply to their emails, they simply assumed ClickSure was scamming them. After I explained to them that the products were actually owned by someone else and that ClickSure just processed the payments, they then contacted ClickSure Support to report the Seller concerned. Following up a couple of weeks later, all 3 of the people I spoke to regarding this, reported back to me that their refund was then granted either by the Seller themselves, or by ClickSure Support.
This demonstrated to me that, whilst offering the Seller an opportunity to provide good support, they took consumer satisfaction seriously and was prepared to step in when required. So I’m sure you would agree, that doesn’t look much like a scam company does it?
So why does ClickSure allow Sellers like this on their network?
Well to be fair to them, how do they know if a Seller is going to ignore their customers? They’re not mind readers! I spoke to a representative by email and they ran me through the approvals procedure that Sellers must comply to, in order to have an offer for sale using them to take the payments. Looking at the requirements to become a Seller, it appears that they do actually have a fairly strict compliance procedure in place which puts them in line with the necessary governing bodies guidelines.
My Conclusion About ClickSure
So taking all of the above into account, I personally don’t think that ClickSure is a scam. I also believe that many of the reports out there that contradict my conclusion, are mostly a result of misinformed individuals or lack of knowledge about the network.
Just because someone isn’t happy with a product that they’ve purchased doesn’t make ClickSure a scam. I mean how could it be a scam, if you can get a refund for any purchase you make using ClickSure to pay the Seller within 60 days of trying it? If that’s a scam then it’s not a very good one!
