This lesson will show you how to setup ClickBank account with your SubscriptionMate plugin.
Setting Up ClickBank Account
You need to change 3 settings in your ClickBank Account:
i. The Thankyou page URL
ii. The Secret Key
iii. The IPN URL
Thankyou Page URL (Step-1)
Copy the "Thank You" URL as shown in screenshot above (your URLs will be different depending on your WordPress setup).
ClickBank Thank-You Field (Step-2)
Then you would paste the URL that you have copied from the ClickBank setting into the ClickBank account thankyou field.
The Secret Key
This is an arbitrary string (alpha-numeric characters) max 16 characters, all in UPPERCASE. To set your Secret Key, login to your Clickbank account, click on the “Account Settings” ->“My Site” and scroll down to the “Advance Tools” section. Then, click on the “Edit” link on the upper right corner. See the screenshot above.
Must match the secret key
The Secret Key that you enter in your ClickBank account MUST match the secret key you enter in the Plugin settings page for ClickBank.
The IPN URL
The purpose of the IPN URL is enabling the Plugin to automatically revoke the Member’s access if they decide to cancel their membership. If a member refunds or cancels, ClickBank will then pos that data to the URL you specify in the IPN field here. The plugin will then revoke the member’s access to your membership site. Copy the IPN URL from your SubscriptionMate "General Settings" and past it in your ClickBank account settings for Instant Notification URL.
Setting up the ClickBank "Order Link"
Now that you have configured the plugin for ClickBank, let’s look at how to setup the Order Link for your membership site.
A typical ClickBank Order Link looks like this:
http://item.vendorID.pay.clickbank.net where “item” is the ClickBank item #ID.
Since this Membership plugin has 5 levels (each level correspond to a unique ClickBank Item #ID).
To purchase the Bronze Membership (Level 2):
http://35.vendorID.pay.clickbank.net/ (assuming item #35 corresponds to the Bronze membership as shown in above screenshot)
To purchase the Silver Membership (Level 3):
http://34.vendorID.pay.clickbank.net/ (assuming item #34 corresponds to the Silver membership as shown in above screenshot)
To purchase the Gold Membership (Level 4):
http://33.vendorID.pay.clickbank.net/ (assuming item #33 corresponds to the Gold membership as shown in above screenshot)
To purchase the Platinum Membership (Level 5):
http://32.vendorID.pay.clickbank.net/ (e.g. item #32 corresponds to the Platinum membership as shown in above screenshot)
