    Great Comparison Review, Lynn!

    I’ve always used Clickbank as a vendor and affiliate, and JVZoo only as an affiliate. But since JVZoo is free of cost (I didn’t know that) I will definitely try it .

    Nevertheless, Clickbank remains (for now) the biggest of all.

    Another feature JVzoo has for vendors that Clickbank doesn’t, is that you have the option of being able to approve affiliates before they get an affiliate link. This is useful for being able to weed out affiliates that are known undesirables.

    When I was researching the difference between the two, it seemed that jvzoo is only preferable if your product is in the IM niche, because the customer automatically gets signed up to the “jvzoo pick of the day” list (or whatever it’s called), and if the product isn’t IM related, they would not appreciate all those emails. Wondering what you think about that, is that correct?

    Hi Lynn,

    I don’t use either yet because I haven’t launched my product yet. I am going to launch a beginner photography course in October 13 and will probably go with Clickbank. I’ve heard that your Paypal account can be at risk with JVZoo if you get a lot of refund requests. Maybe you could clarify this from your research.

    Lynn, you said you set up an identical site on a .net URL and put that through ClickBank – is that because you cannot put the same offer/site on both processors?

    Hmm. A very interesting review. I’m biased because I haven’t heard until now about JVZoo, and well, ClickBank’s been around to be counted as a reliable place for merchants and affiliates’ alike.

    But of course, if we want changes and improvement, we should always be open to new stuff, and that maybe, given the benefit of the doubt, they’ll be able to surpass the one that has been sturdy all these times.

    The comparison is very good, learned a lot about what JVZoo can bring to the table. And I guess, it will all boils down to what will work for you as a merchant, or as an affiliate.

    This is nice to keep for future references, Lynn.

    Found this post, as usual, on, and shared this comment there as well.

    Good one Lynn. I always like the posts when you recommend us something new. I’m looking for new merchants as well as new affiliate products. Not going to bang all my efforts in Clickbank. Better have a second alternatives!

    Definitely going to use your affiliate link. Pls provide more good resources!

    Hi Lynn, I just remembered something else that makes JVZoo different from Clickbank. They allow you to upload and host your products directly on their platform. They also give you the ability to create instant sales pages, thereby eliminating the necessity to create sales and download pages on your own website.

    Hi Lynn, Thanks for this comparison. I have been hearing a lot more about JVZoo lately, so I wanted to check it out as an affiliate. I also have a few products lined up for launch soon so this saves me a little time on comparing the pros/cons of the two sites.

    Hi Lynn,
    Evaluating drawbacks is always important for many marketers. Thanks for having that points in this post. I’ve seen many used Jvzoo but I personally engage with clickbank for long. I think I need to look further about jvzoo.

    I use JVZoo to run my affiliate program for my Kindle HTML Description tool. It integrates well with the membership site software and I like all the various types of reporting. As for refunds, if there is a refund request, you simply process it through their control panel.

    So far, I’ve been very happy with the JVZoo platform!

    Hi Lynn, So far JvZoo hasn’t gone well! I couldn’t find how to upload a product. I looked at their video and it was no help as it didn’t show you where to go to do this. I contacted support and they said to go to my sellers dashboard and I will see a big orange button saying “Upload product”. However there is no orange button there when I visit this page.

    I contacted them again and they now want me to screen capture it to show them. It’s taking ages to sort this out. It seems really strange that there is no obvious way for me to upload a product. I was wondering whether I needed to upgrade my account in some way for this button to appear?

    Thanks for sharing your research Lynn. Food for thought there.

    I was going to go with Clickbank, as my experience as a buyer with JVZoo didn’t impress – perhaps due to the ridiculous “Upsell Maze” and the irritation of the automatic subscription to the JVZoo pick of the day email.

    However, I can’t imagine you would choose a platform which does that, so maybe there’s a way to streamline the process and make it simple and non spammy for the buyer. I’ll have to check it out.

    Did you know that if you pay affiliates by third party payment methods such as paypal, or credit card that you no longer have to send them 1099? That started with 2012 taxes. I’m not aware of any chances for 2012 or 2013 that’s different.

    I’m not sure if this lets me put a link but I’d like to share with you a blog post I wrote and the comments on the post from Tax Mama. Just thought I’d let you know that. Paypal or the third party payment system will send a 1099 K to people instead.

    No one seems to be mentioning the area of autoresponders and this is where JVzoo is a drawback because it will not integrate with Infusionsoft. I want to stick with infusionsoft so I have to use Clickbank. The only other option is to use Infusionsoft’s merchant system which has no marketplace thus making it harder to attract affiliates. To bad JVZoo won’t work with Infusionsoft as I would prefer to use them.
