How to Make a Test Purchase on ClickBank

There are a variety of reasons you may want to make a test purchase for one of your products on ClickBank. For example you may be setting up your product and need to test the checkout process, you may want to check to see if your autoresponders are working correctly, or your sales are down and you just want to make sure everything’s working as it should. Whatever the reason ClickBank allows you to easily create a temporary credit card number so you can fully test the purchase process without having to spend money to do so.

(Note: before you can follow this process you must already have created a product in your ClickBank account that is priced at $3.00 or more.)

In order to get your temporary credit card information for testing click the “My Site” link under the “Account Settings” tab.

Scroll down and you should see a section called “Testing Your Products” as shown in the image below.  Go ahead and click on the “Edit” link.

You’ll then be taken to a page that will allow you to create a new card number for testing. Simply click on “Generate New Card Number” as shown below.

You should now be provided with a Test Credit Card Number, Card Expiration Date, and Card Validation Code.

Now go to your ClickBank checkout page and enter in the card details, also enter in your name, email address, and zip code. The email address you enter will be sent a ClickBank receipt as well as be subscribed to any 3rd party autoresponders should you have any set up.

You should be able to complete the full order process including accessing and downloading your digital product. If your test purchase is unsuccessful ClickBank suggests to check the following…

  1. Is your payment link set up correctly?
  2. Is your ClickBank nickname spelled correctly?
  3. Did you enter the test credit card information correctly?
  4. Do you have the correct item number listed in the payment link?
  5. Have you saved your Thank You Page URL in the My Products section of your account?
