ClickBank, Hyprlock, and Activ E-Book

KewlKat007 I am curious, how does ClickBank work with Hyprlock and Activ E-Book compiler in regards to affiliate systems?  Would I simply create a rebrander.exe file and the affiliate would have to rebrand a regular copy of my ebook?  If so, how does this work with Hyprlock?

To tell the truth, I don't know much about affiliate systems or how they work. HYPrLock was designed to work with a registered eBook author's payment system.

If the ClickBank affiliate program is designed so affiliates get the password payment it wouldn't work. If the eBook author continues to get the password payment and the affiliate just gets credit for the sale -- then it should work.

Rebranding is a different matter. For Rebranding to work, the "rebrander" would also need to purchase his own copy of HYPrLock and move some of the HYPrLock files to his own web site server. Then (using the Activ E-Book Rebranding program) some of the HYPrLock variable code would need to be fundamentally changed by the "rebrander". For example; the purchase information as well as the "authors" web site URL.

I haven't tried this feature, but (in theory) it should work.

KewlKat007 Thanks for your reply.  I just emailed Clickbank and explained to them the situation.  I requsted more information on exactly how tracking is done.

Under normal circumstances (i.e. using just Activ and not using Hyprlock) this can work via the rebrand feature.  I read about this in the Activ help manual.  However, since your software encrypts everything, it makes it a bit more difficult.  Not complaining, though.  I'm just trying to figure out how to get everything to play nice

I think you have a misconception about how the ClickBank affiliate program works, Rebranding and HYPrLock.

Rebranding is an Activ E-Book feature you can use to let a third party change (rebrand) some of the basic eBook information. For example you could "sell" a third party the right to market your product as their own.

With the ClickBank Affiliate program, a third party can add a product "link" (with a special identifier code) to your product on their web site. When someone clicks that third party "link" and buys your product, ClickBank recognizes the special identifier code and credits the third party for a percentage of the sale.

Finally, HYPrLock does not encrypt anything, it only adds some premium distribution and security features to the compiled eBook. It acts like an automatic "gate keeper", controlling access to the Activ E-Book passwords.

I am fairly confident that HYPrLock will NOT interfere with the ClickBank Affiliate program. However, when your product is Rebranded, the rebranding party will need his own copy of HYPrLock if the website URL of the eBook is changed.
