There has been lots of buzz around ClickSure during the past year. Some people are making thousands of money through their website but at the same time other people are asking, “Is ClickSure a Scam?”
In this review, I will explain how their website works and why some people say it’s a scam. I’ll also show if you can make money with ClickSure or if you should stay away from their services.
Are you ready? Fasten your seat belts. Let’s go!
Founded: Many years ago
Type: Affiliate Marketing Network. Similar to Clickbank, Clickbetter, JvZoo, etc.
Short Review: It’s possible to make money through ClickSure and their website is not a scam. They pay once you have reached their $250 minimum threshold. However, many products on their website are scams and it may be challenging to find good products to promote. I recommend using more reliable affiliate networks.

What Is ClickSure?
ClickSure is an online digital marketplace where product creators can submit their products for promotion and affiliates can find products that they can promote. ClickSure is like a middleman between a product owner and an affiliate.
You may have probably heard of similar services like ClickSure before. Famous marketplaces are Clickbank, JvZoo and ClickBetter for digital products. Then there are tons of affiliate marketplaces for other kind of products like ShareASale or Commission Junction (CJ).
Let me first explain how you can make money on ClickSure. Then I’ll compare it to other similar networks.
How to Make Money on ClickSure?
If you have already made money with affiliate marketing, you are probably familiar with the process.
First of all, you choose what kind of products you want to promote. I recommend choosing something that interests you and you find valuable. The best product for promotion is usually something that you use yourself. However, you don’t need to be using all products yourself. But you can evaluate which ones are good and worth promoting.
When you have decided which product(s) you want to promote, you can start sharing their link. I don’t recommend just spamming the link all around the Internet because you’ll lose your reputation and usually nobody buys from spammers.
Anyhow, there’s a lot of potential with affiliate marketing and a beauty of it is that you can have even hundreds of income streams at the same time. In addition, it’s passive income so you can earn money even while you are sleeping or laying on the beach with your girlfriend.
Nothing beats the feeling of waking up and checking your email showing that you earned $175 commissions during the night! I know the feeling and I recommend it for you as well 😉
How to Promote ClickSure Products?
There are basically 3 ways how you can promote your offers:
- Build a website or a blog where you can promote offers through posts and pages.
- Build an audience in a social media like YouTube or Instagram and promote offer for your audience.
- Build an email list and send them your offer.
I use all these strategies myself. However, I have mostly used the strategy number 1. Building your own website or a blog has several benefits. You own everything what happens on your website. If you build your business on some social media platform, you are always dependent on their moves.
Building an email list is a great strategy but you would need anyway to find a way how to get people to your list. One strategy is to create a landing page and drive traffic through paid marketing on search engines and social medias like Facebook but this strategy can be quite risky for beginners.
That’s why I recommend building out your own website and promoting products there. If you want to promote ClickSure products “OptionRobot” for example, you can write a blog post “OptionRobot Review” on your website. Then people can find there through Google and from other sources.

- Coinbase ($10 sign up bonus for new members. Possible to cash out immediately.)
- Elite Marketing Pro
- And so on.
All of these are great services, especially Coinbase. Anyone can get a free $10 immediately after joining so I can recommend it for all people easily. My own experiences with Coinbase service has been solely positive I made already lots of money through their website.
ClickSure vs Clickbank vs JvZoo
Now we come to the important question, “Is ClickSure worth it?” There are already several reliable services like Clickbank, JvzZoo and others so why to bother with Clicksure. They say that numbers speak for themselves. So, let’s have a look:
We can’t deny that ClickSure has achieved lots of success during the years. They need to do something right to achieve so big results. However, that’s not the whole story.
Many shady products that are not approved on reliable networks like Clickbank end up on ClickSure. That’s why some people claim that even 90% of their all products are scams.
When I look at ClickSure products I need to admit that most of them are at least very suspicious and shady. They are promising 1k daily profits for their users or something similar. There are lots of binary option products. I am not a big fan of binary options myself because most products on that industry are scams and it’s gambling anyway.
All in all, I would personally stay away from such offers that fill these 5 scam signs. A big part of ClickSure products have big red flags on their products, so why bother? There’s a much more stable way to make a good income online. You can learn more by clicking the picture below:
ClickSure Reviews & Complaints
ClickSure has a bad reputation among online marketers. Many successful marketer is staying away from their website because they don’t want to be involved with scam products. Even though ClickSure wouldn’t be a scam itself there are lots of products in their network that are scams.
ClickSure pays honestly their affiliates as many people report they’ve already cashed out thousands of dollars from this website. But you need to keep in mind that they have a relatively high cash out threshold of $250.
Several ClickSure complaints mention also a high percentage of refunds. You know how frustrating it is to earn hundreds of dollars commissions and then realize that they all are taken from you because the clients took refunds.
What is the reason for a high refund rate on ClickSure?
As I mentioned above, most of their products are scams. When people realize that they’ve been scammed they naturally want their money back. Anyway, what’s the point of promoting scam products? I would never do it. You would lose your reputation and credibility right away.
Conclusion – Is ClickSure a Scam?
ClickSure is not a scam because they pay honestly for their members and keep their promises. However, many people claim that 90% of products in their network are scams. That’s why I recommend just staying away from their website.
As I said in my ClickBetter Review, it’s better to stick with more reliable affiliate marketing networks like Clickbank. However, most of the time I don’t even use affiliate networks at all because most companies have their independent affiliate program. Otherwise, they would need to pay a little fee for the network for managing their program.
I am still offering 1-on-1 support for all my readers who want to be successful with affiliate marketing.

Do You Want Quick Wins Or Long Term Success?
Do you want to earn $1,000 now or do you want to maintain your honest reputation and build a successful multi million dollar business? That’s a big question to ask when you are choosing what kind of products you want to promote as an affiliate.
I have seen some websites all products that they possibly can. They make a review and praise every single product. I contacted the website owner and asked why they are doing it. I was surprised to get an honest answer. He said, “I want to earn money by recommending these products.”
However, that’s a big challenge. He isn’t thinking about the best of his audience but he is only thinking about money. That kind of attitude doesn’t lead to a long-term success. It can give him $100 here and $500 there but when people realize this guy isn’t honest, they flee quickly.
When I saw his website I decided that I would never buy from such guy.
Building a successful online business takes time but it’s definitely worth it. Results add up like a snowball over the time course. You will see exponential leaps in your traffic and income when you move forward. The beauty of online marketing is that the scalability is literally infinite. There’s no limit on how many people you can reach and how much you can earn.
But the more honest and the more value you provide, the more successful you will be. Provide value more than anyone. That’s the fastest way to succeed.
I hope you enjoyed reading my ClickSure Review and discussion on promoting products as an affiliate marketer. Now I would love to hear from you.

Have you ever used ClickSure or other affiliate marketing networks?
What is your favorite strategy for earning money with affiliate marketing?
Let me know in the comments below! 🙂
I will be more than happy to answer all of your questions and comments personally.
One thing I always advise anyone going into affiliate marketing is to find companies that can deliver quality products so that when they sell them, issues won’t arise in the future.
It is no need to promise to pay higher while the site is filled with scam products that are not worth it. Being a middleman can be difficult if you bring products that are not good to your customers.
So, I think, even as they promise as paying high, it is not really a good idea to join ClickSure for any affiliate marketer willing to make it. I would suggest the Wealthy Affiliate site for it looks reliable to me.
I completely agree with you. As an affiliate marketer I only want to promote products that provide a great value for the customer. I could never promote scam products just for the sake of earning money.
I’m glad to promote valuable products because I know that they improve people’s life.
That’s the point of being an affiliate marketer as we are all in the process of trying to get things done for the sake of the company that we are working for. It is sad that some other affiliates try to make money by all means and that should not be allowed in the world of affiliate marketing.
So ClickSure has no means to verify from their end which products on their networks are scam and legit??? I also think that the $250.00 minimum threshold is far achievable considering all the scam products and negative reviews about ClickSure.
It seems that ClickSure accepts most programs in their network. They aren’t as strict as ClickBank, for example.
Many of these obscure affiliate marketing programs are not a scam, but it is impossible to reach cash-out because most of the products you will be promoting are either semi-scams or else are so overpriced that nobody in their right mind would ever buy the product.
On top of it, many of the products have webpages or landing pages that are so amateur that they scream ´scam´ as soon as you see the product’s website. With this particular website, there is a very high minimum cash-out that would require many sales and so you are very unlikely to ever cash out, even if the actual affiliate network is legit.
This is a common tactic among these types of sites, a high cash-out so that even the people who do make legit sales end up forfeiting them to an account that never gets high enough to be cashed-out.
That’s a good point. I think ClikSure is winning lots of money because they don’t need to pay, for example, to members who made only $200 in sales. Let’s say if they have, for example, 10,000 affiliate marketers who have made $150 in sales, it already means $150,000 that they can freely invest in growth because they don’t need to pay it immediately. Having an affiliate network is probably a very profitable business.
Well, at least they pay right?
It seems to me that this has or had potential( i don’t know the state of the site) and it might become interesting in the future.
What i don’t like is the high withdraw limit…
250$? I think that this is a motivation so the users can earn a lot but I personally don’t like this withdraw limit.
What do you think?
Also, thanks for going in depth about this site.
yeah, the withdraw limit is surprisingly high. On other affiliate programs withdraw limit is usually significantly lower. Sometimes you can cash out immediately when you made your first sales.
Probably ClickSure wants you to get committed with their site and that’s why they have put a high withdraw limit.
It’s good that they are at least an honest company and that they pay out their members, but if they keep letting in scam products to utilize their site then ultimately it will just end up tarnishing their reputation.
I’ve joined a couple programs similar to this in the past myself, but was never really that good at marketing them. I think you need a unique approach and you need to be creative in selling if you want to set yourself apart since there are probably a lot of others doing all the traditional ways of marketing already.
I would just like to ask why you are wary of binary options? Are most of them scams? I have read some articles about the top names in binary options and they all seemed to be positive.
There are tons of scams in the binary option world. Many programs promise easy earnings with little efforts. I’ve reviewed some of them also on YourOnlineRevenue.com.
There are legitimate binary trading sites and I’ve tried some of them. However, binary trading equals to gambling where you’ll lose in a long run. That’s why I recommend long-term investing on rather than trading.
When I used Clicksure about 12 years ago I found way too many scam products hoping to catch unsuspecting newbies.
The amount of time I spent reading through descriptions and searching websites to work out whether something was worth promoting could have been better spent creating my own products and launching them. Your article suggests nothing much has changed there, so many thanks for the update.
Of course, now that I know you’ve already been doing the hard work to find the good offers, I might have to go and check some of them out!
wow, have you really used ClickSure 12 years ago? It’s 2005 when affiliate marketing wasn’t even close as popular as nowadays.
Sure, go ahead and check out the best make money online resources. If you have any questions, you can always free to ask and I’ll be more than happy to answer you personally.
Hi Roope. Many thanks for your reply.
Yes, I’ve been doing affiliate marketing since 1997, on and off. Hundreds of blogs, thousands of offers, millions of visitors. Was one of the first Aussies to use Google Adwords to promote affiliate marketing offers, when they first launched, before they cracked down on it. Still making a few cents from Amazon links I set up in ’98. The old hand-coded html pages are still up!
Tried everything from multiple Youtube channels to T-shirts – even ran a lucrative SEO business 15 years ago and helped a few marketers push their sites up a bit in Google. Fun times!
Never really made it big time as I prioritized family and never really took AM too seriously. I still just dabble, as my real passion is writing science fiction ebooks (yeah, I know, smallest profit level for greatest amount of work on Amazon. Oh well.).
Love your site. Keep up the great work. Fantastic to see the passion you’ve put into everything here.
Wow, what’s impressive! You started affiliate marketing already 20 years ago. It’s amazing to have you here visiting my site. Thank you very much also for your encouragement. I’ll keep up the work and improve daily. At the moment building affiliate marketing business is one of my highest priorities in life. Most likely I’ll also create some own products in the future.
Did you try Wealthy Affiliate during those years? They have been around already for more than 12 years so I guess you have heard of them also before.
The bad thing about them is their products, almost all of them are fake, I got scammed by the product promoted by Clicksure (Obviously, that product does not exist anymore). I lost my money, was angry and frustrated.
This was not entirely negative experience, though. It did NOT make me give up my online adventure. Instead, I stood up again wiped off the dust and started to look for legit opportunities
I’m sorry to hear that you’ve got scammed but happy to hear that you got up and didn’t give up. Have a look at these 5 ways to avoid scams so you’ll never fall into scams anymore.
What I’ve realized during my online business career is that usually everyone succeeds online who doesn’t give up. The opportunities are so great that there’s success waiting for anyone who wants to have it.
Why don’t everyone succeed online if it’s so easy? There are two main reasons: 1.Most people don’t get even started. 2.Many people give up during the process because they aren’t patient enough to see the results. A small number of people who just keep on going and keep on learning will always reap a big success.
I’m sorry to hear that you have been scammed but happy to hear that you didn’t give up, cause some people if they have been scammed in online they’ll say to the other people will spread the word that “online products are fake, don’t buy”. Really happy though that you didn’t give up…
That’s a good point. Sometimes when I talk to my friends and explain about products that help you to earn money online I get questions like, “But are those products really reliable? I’ve heard about some online scams.”
Good news is that there are actually hundreds of reliable make money online programs. Of course, the quality varies and some of them are better than others. Wealthy Affiliate has been my favorite so far.
I am an affiliate marketer, I not only promote affiliate products through my blogs and websites but I also have an affiliate store. I use Amazon, Commission Junction and Linkshare.
I wanted to use Clickbank but I could not use it because it was on available in my location. I have never heard of ClickSure. Based on your review, I will perhaps never use ClickSure.
First of all, the payout threshold is very high, $250 is a very payment threshold. Since you say the site contains scam products, I will avoid using ClickSure because I don’t want to send my traffic to a site where there are scam products.
yeah, Amazon, Commission Junction and LinkShare are all very reliable and huge affiliate network. Amazon has the biggest individual affiliate program in the world and most affiliate marketers use it at some level.
However, I haven’t used Amazon affiliate program so much because I’ve been concentrating on other ones. I’ve signed up to Amazon Associates and made a few sales and that’s it. Maybe in the future. Their program has several advantages like their reputation but also some disadvantages like low commissions.
The $250 minimum threshold sounds extremely high. It just puts you off to be honest because it seems extremely hard to get and you feel like you might never be able to reach it. The fact that it has a bad reputation doesn’t help either because I am a bit reluctant to try it based on that. Doesn’t help that the site is full of products that are scams either. Probably a good site to stay away from to be honest even though it might be good if you use it careful.
That’s right. $250 may sound like hard to reach but when you grow audience and your influence online, it gets easier and easier.
However, as you said it’s good to stay away from this site. There are more reliable options out there anyway.
