ClickBank Affiliate Requirements

I got this question from one of my Twitter followers, what is the Clickbank affiliate requirement? To be honest with you I never thought of it so I had to do research and this is what I found out.

Clickbank has some requirement for people who want to promote products from their marketplace as affiliates, here are the Clickbank affiliate requirements.

To be above 18+

Although Clickbank is not very strict on this like most online platforms legally they want you to be at least 18 years old if you want to make money with them, but again I have seen kids with 15-17 years old making money from Clickbank.

To live in Clickbank Accepted Countries

Clickbank does not allow affiliates from certain countries, people from most Asian and African countries are not allowed to promote Clickbank products. I have compelled a list of Clickbank accepted countries here and a list of Clickbank banned countries here.

You can get away with this by using a VPN service or by just going for Clickbank Alternatives.

Personal Identifiable information

ClickBank Affiliate Requirements


Like many online platforms when signing up for a Clickbank account they will ask you for identifiable information, like your name, your state, and country.

They do this in order to try to combat fraud and also to limit people who are not from Clickbank accepted countries.

Physical address and bank information

Clickbank will ask you for your Physical address and your bank information, again they do this for two reasons the first one is to prevent fraud and the second reason is that Clickbank will pay you by emailing you cheques to your physical address or they will directly deposit to your bank account if you’re from those countries which are qualified for direct bank deposit.

Tax information

?Affiliates that earn over $600 are required to have a taxpayer identification number. For affiliates who are from America, this number can be your personal social security number (SSN) or employer identification number (EIN) from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

If you are from outside of the USA, you will have to fill the W-9 form and in that form, you will have to indicate your taxpayer identification number (TIN).

That is it, those are Clickbank affiliate requirements, there is a chance that I forgot some, so if do you think there are some requirements that I did not mention please feel free to mention them in the comment section below and I will add them to this post and give you credit for it.
