ClickBank is a privately held online marketplace for digital information products. It aims to serve as a connection between digital content creators (also known as vendors) and affiliate marketers, who then promote them to consumers. In 2011 Revenue Magazine named the company as the top affiliate network in the United States.[1] The company has headquarters in Boise, Idaho, and offices in Broomfield, Colorado.

The company is a subsidiary of Keynetics, and is the sister company of Kount, an online security company. It was founded in 1998 by Tim and Eileen Barber.

In 2011, the site had attracted over 1,500,000 affiliate marketers, approximately 100,000 of whom were designated as 'active' at any given time.[2][3] In June 2011 the company claimed to have paid affiliates and vendors over $1.8 billion, processed 35,000 transactions per day, and generated over $350M in annual revenue.[citation needed] It offered over 46,000 individual products to its affiliate marketers, and provided services in over 200 countries.[4]
