Clickbank statistics explained
Initial $/sale :
This number is the average amount that an affiliate earns in commission for each sale of one of this vendor's products, including the initial price of any upsells or order bumps that result from the first sale. This number takes into account refunds, chargebacks, and sales tax, but does not include rebill payments. Since vendors may offer products with different prices and commissions, each affiliate will have different results, but this number gives you a general guideline. For the SAS example, initial $/sale would be around 360$.
- Avg Rebill Total:
This number shows the average amount an affiliate makes in commission on all of the rebilled sales of a recurring product, not including the initial sale. This number is only shown if the vendor offers recurring billing products (that is, products such as memberships and subscriptions that regularly bill customers over time).
- Avg $/sale:
This is the average amount that an affiliate earns in commission for each sale of one of this vendor's products, including initial and rebill payments. For vendors with rebill products, this number gives you an indication of the additional amount you can earn by promoting those products. For vendors with no rebill products, this number is the same as the Initial $/sale. For the SAS example, this would be around 570$.
- Avg %/sale:
This number shows the average commission rate earned for all sales of a vendor’s products, including one-time purchases, rebills, and upsell purchases. Since vendors can offer different commission rates for different types of products or for different affiliates, this number may not exactly match the commission rate you earn on any given sale. For the SAS example, this would be 50% set.
- Avg %/rebill:
This number is only shown if the vendor offers recurring billing products, and shows the average commission rate earned only on rebills. Vendors can offer different commission rates on the initial sale and the rebills. For the SAS example, this would be 50% set.
"Grav: is short for the GRAVITY™ performance statistic. This number represents a unique calculation by ClickBank that takes into account the number of different affiliates who earned a commission by promoting this product over the past 12 weeks. Since more recent transactions are given a higher value, this number can give you an idea of what products are “hot” at the moment, in terms of being promoted by many affiliates and making a good number of sales. However, high gravity can also indicate that there will be a lot of competition in promoting this product.
"Cat" is short for "category." This section provides information about the ClickBank Marketplace category and subcategory of the product.
