Updated: How To Set Up Email Notifications for ClickBank Sales

IM Tutorials

1 Comment

Clickbank has perceptibly emerged to be the world’s largest marketplace for digital products with thousands of affiliates getting huge commissions on affiliate sales daily. But heck! Don’t you think it would be much easier and convenient for affiliates to be notified by email when they do get those commissions, rather than them having to log into their dashboard all the time to figure that out? Well the truth is this was actually an integral part of the Clickbank marketplace.

Yes it was, but for some reason, Clickbank dropped the commission notifications via email. This was a little excruciating as I’s a feature quite valued by affiliates to make life a little easier to deal with. Fortunately, there is still a way out of this dilemma and you can still actually get notified by email when you make Clickbank commissions. However this method requires using a script and it’s fairly simple to set up, anyone with a website can get it through and start receiving commission alerts straight into their inbox.

In this post, I am going to guide you through the process of setting up this script to do the work for you, but before we get to that, here are a few insights into the script.

Prerequisites…

You will need:

•    A ClickBank account
•    An email address (where your commission notifications will be directed to) and,
•    A web hosting account.

How it Works…

•    This script functions on the bases ClickBank’s Instant Notification Service.
•    Clickbank’s  Instant Notification Service instantly sends information to the script installed on your website each time you make a sale
•    Once the script receives the alert from Clickbank’s Instant Notification Service, it automatically wraps that up into an email and forwards it to your SPECIFIED email.

Additional Details…

•    Though only vendors still get notified by Clickbank on sales of their products, this script flawlessly works for all commissions relating to any Clickbank account, be it vendor and affiliate.
•    The script is not limited to only sales notifications, but other activities on your account such as sales, refunds, rebills, and rebills cancellations.
•    You have full rights to customize as you wish.
•    Though its actually possible to use SSL with ClickBank’s Instant Notification Service and this script, it’s  however not a prerequisite.

Installation…

1. Copy the script below to NotePad, WordPad, or any HTML editor and save it as imdiscountsnotify.php

<?php

/* YOUR ClickBank Secret Key */
$secretKey = "YOUR SECRET KEY HERE";

/* Email That Receives The Notification */
$toEmail = "ENTER YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS HERE";

/* Email That Sends The Notification */
$fromEmail = "imdiscounts@clickbank.net";
$fromName = "IMDiscounts Notify";

$message = json_decode(file_get_contents('php://input'));
$encrypted = $message->{'notification'};
$iv = $message->{'iv'};

$decrypted = trim(mcrypt_decrypt(MCRYPT_RIJNDAEL_128,
                                 substr(sha1($secretKey), 0, 32),
                                 base64_decode($encrypted),
                                 MCRYPT_MODE_CBC,
                                 base64_decode($iv)), "\0..\32");

$json = json_decode($decrypted,true);

    $headers =    "From: " . $fromName . " <" . $fromEmail . ">\r\n" .
            "Reply-To: " . $fromEmail . "\r\n" .
            "X-Mailer: PHP/" . phpversion();

        mail($toEmail,    "New Transaction: " . ucfirst($json['transactionType']) . ": $" . number_format($json['totalAccountAmount'], 2, '.', ''),
                
                "\nProduct: " . $json['lineItems']['0']['productTitle'] .
                "\nVendor: " . $json['vendor'] .
                "\nReceipt: " . $json['receipt'] .
                "\nAffiliate: " . $json['affiliate'] .
                "\nAmount: $" . number_format($json['totalAccountAmount'], 2, '.', '') .
                "\nPayment: " . $json['paymentMethod'] .
                "\n\nhttp://IMDiscounts.Net  - IM Discounts and Coupon Codes"
, $headers);
?>

2. Replace the following information in the script…

a)   Line 4 – You’ll need to create a secret key, this can be any series of up to 16 numbers and letters but must be in ALL UPPERCASE.  Replace “YOUR SECRET KEY HERE” with your new secret key.
b)   Line 7 – Replace “ENTER EMAIL ADDRESS HERE” with the email address you want your notifications sent to.

3. Upload the script to your website and note the path to the script.  For ex:
http://yourwebsite.com/cbnotify/imdiscounts.php

4. Enable “Instant Notification” in your ClickBank Account.

a. Log into your ClickBank account and click on the Settings tab.
clickbank settings

b. Click on “My Site.”
clickbank mysite

c. Under the “Advanced Tools” section click on “Edit.”
clickbank advanced tools

d. Under the “Advanced Tools Editor” click “request access.”
clickbank request

e. Answer the questions and make sure you’ve reviewed the Terms of Use. You’ll need to scroll to the bottom as there is a checkbox at the end of the terms.
Once you’ve agreed to the terms and click on “Save Changes & Request API Access.”
clickbank savechanges

f. Enter your Secret Key.  This is the same secret key you created in Step 2a above.
clickbank secret key

g. Paste the path to your script into the field “Instant Notification URL 1:
clickbank notification url

h. Select version 6.0 from the drop-down.
clickbank version 6

i. Click the (test) link to test the script.
clickbank test

j. Click to Save Changes.
clickbank save changes

5. Make sales and get notified by email!

Script customization…

Here is a run-through of the scripts emailing format.

Email Subject –
New Transaction: (Transaction Type): $(Amount)
Body of email –
Product: (Title of product)
Vendor: (Product Vendor)
Affiliate: (Referring Affiliate) – This however only displays if  the scale is referred by the affiliate
Amount: $(Amount paid to you)

While it’s quite easy to push through with customizing the script to fit your liking, it would require a basic knowledge of PHP to achieve your desired customization. Not all that techy? You can simply outsource a PHP developer of freelancing sites like Fiverr or Elance for a few bucks to handle the script’s customization. However, all the post parameters available in Clickbank’s Instant Notification Version 6.0 will work just fine with this script and will sure help out where you get stuck!

Troubleshooting…
•    Ensure your email address, Secret Key, and the Instant Notification URL are all correctly set.
•    Be sure to check both your inbox and spam folders for the mails sent to you as messages from the script may sometimes be marked by spam by your email provider’s authentication system.
•    Though this script is likely to work with any webhost, it’s advisable to verify with your web host that this script will work as some webhosts sometimes require a separate email process.

SEOPressor Review: Make Your On-Page SEO Easy

IM Reviews

0 Comments

Part of blogging and making money online involves using search engine optimization (SEO). On-page SEO is through the use of keywords but takes time. You need to research, write naturally while including them and make sure you use them enough times without being spammy. This is quickest way to get search engines like Yahoo, Bing and Google to rank you well so people find you. The good news is that you can make this easier. A WordPress plugin is available called SEOPressor and here is a full review about it.

What Is SEOPressor?

In short, it is a plugin developed for WordPress by SEO expert, Daniel Tan. It has been created specifically to help you with your on-page SEO, by calculating the amount of times you include your keyword, make sure you use the right types of headings, checking your alt tags and suggest some changes to make your content better.

It shows the results in an easy to read score, which is essential to make changes and know how well you are learning the subject. This isn’t the easiest thing to learn in the world!

The Features of SEOPressor Plugin

What makes this different from all the other SEO plugins available? How will this make your blog stand out? There are a few ways that it will do these things:

Analyse Your Tags and Title: These two aspects are extremely important for search engines to determine if you’re relevant to a person’s search. The plugin will check that your keywords are in the tags and titles and suggest some changes that will help them stand out more.

Automatically Add the Alt Tags: Most plugins will tell you that you need to add keywords to your alt tags but this one goes one step further. It automatically adds them for you.

Automatic Changes to Fonts: Like the alt tags, the plugin will automatically add changes to your font, including underlining, italicizing and bolding the keywords; although you need to change the settings to do this. By making these changes, the search engines are drawn to the more important aspects of your content to help with ranking.

Checking the Density of the Keyword: Keyword density is a major problem for SEO. You either have your phrases used too much or too little. SEOPressor checks this and suggests changes to help make your content search engine ready.

Clear Scores for Posts and Pages: Want to know how well you’re learning SEO? With the scores, you will clearly see that. This also helps you know how effective the content is for the search engines. As you make changes, the scores are updated to reflect them.

Match Google’s Algorithm: Google constantly makes changes to its algorithm and it makes it difficult to stay on top. The plugin matches that algorithm to determine how good your content is and helps you make changes so you remain on top; no matter the change.

SEOPressor is available through the premium plugins and there are two options to choose between. The single-site, $47 offer, is for one domain but does offer life-time updates and support. Alternatively, you could purchase the unlimited license for $97 to use on multiple domains.
