DAP has built-in support for ClickBank’s Instant Notification Services (INS) (starting v3.9)
This is very similar to Paypal’s Instant Payment Notification (IPN).
The ClickBank INS notification will be processed instantly in real time, and your members will receive their welcome email with their membership login info instantly after purchase.
Integrating with ClickBank is the same whether it’s a one-time product, a subscription product with recurring payments, or a PitchPlus (one-click upsells) product.
1. Login to your ClickBank account
2. Go to the “Account Settings” tab at the top
3. Click on “My Site” from the sub-menu at the top.
4. Under Advanced Tools, update the Instant Notification Service URL (accept the terms of service etc), and make sure the URL points to:
Replace YourSite.com above with your actual domain name.
5. Screenshot below shows Version 1.0, but starting DAP v4.2, we have added support for CB INS 2.1.
So if you’re using DAP v4.2 or later, then select INS Version 2.0 and set the CB INS URL TO :
But if you’re using DAP v4.1 or earlier, then select Version 1.0
and set INS URL TO:
6. Whatever value you put in the Secret Key field in ClickBank (see image above), put the same value (must be ALL UPPERCASE) in to your DAP Admin Dashboard on your web site, at:
Setup > Config > Payment Processing > Secret Authorization Key used when interfacing with external systems
7. The Product Title in CB must match the Product Name in DAP.
8. The Thank You Page url in CB product settings page, should be set to point a static thank-you page you create in your WordPress blog – something like http://YourSite.com/thank-you/ .
And the page should state something to the effect of…
Thank you for your purchase. The download information for the product you just purchased has been sent to the email id you just use during the purchase.
Please check that email id in a few minutes, and you will see an email from us with your login information.
Make a test purchase.
If the integration was setup correctly, the user will be registered in DAP. You will find the user account in the DAP Users > Manage screen and you will find the completed transaction / order details on the DAP Orders page.
If the test order is listed in DAP Orders page, then CB is correctly integrated with DAP. Check the payment status in DAP Orders page. If it says Success, but no welcome/thank-you email got sent, then make sure you set the thank-you email for that product in DAP products page.
If no order is listed in DAP orders page for the test purchase, then CB is not integrated with DAP.
To troubleshoot, do the following:

DAP directly integrates with the following Payment Processors without the need for any additional third-party shopping carts:
DAP also integrates with the following Shopping Carts
Since DAP integrates with Shopping carts like WooCommerc, 1SiteAutomation.com (our white label of 1Shoppingcart), e-Junkie, Premium Web Cart and Infusionsoft, that means that it also integrates (albeit indirectly) with all of the Payment processors and gateways that these carts support. So, for example, since DAP works with 1SiteAutomation, it essentially integrates with all payment providers supported by 1SiteAutomation, like:
Bank of America
DPI Merchant Services
ECX QuickCommerce 3.0
Paymentech (direct integration via Authorize.net)
PayPal Payflow Pro (via e-Junkie)
TrialPay (via e-Junkie)
VeriSign PayFlow Pro
ViaKlix (Nova Systems)
If you use the DAP Shopping Cart Plugin, you can do 1-Click Upsells/Downsells like the pros, without the need for any external shopping cart or upsell service provider.
The free DAP shopping cart that comes with your DAP purchase allows you to do unlimited 1-Click Upsells using Stripe, Authorize.net and Paypal Website Payments Pro (legacy).
However, for doing 2-Click Upsells/Downsells with Paypal Standard, you need our Paypal Upsell-Tree plugin that is sold separately. Or you can also get this plugin for free with our Platinum subscription.
Of course, if you need advanced shopping cart features – like ability to calculate shipping, tax, and coupons – then you should consider using 1SiteAutomation.com.
If you want automated recurring order processing using 1ShoppingCart (1SC) or 1SiteAutomation.com, then DAP needs to be able to process the recurring email notifications sent by 1ShoppingCart, which it does on the back-end when the DAP Cron Job runs every 10 minutes.
However, if you’re using Godaddy as your web host, then because GoDaddy disables a mandatory PHP library (“imap”) on all their servers for some reason, DAP is unable to process the recurring order email notifications from 1ShoppingCart.
But if you’re using 1SC & GoDaddy hosting, you will have to end up doing manual cancellations if any member cancels their subscription, or if their credit card fails and their recurring payments don’t get processed.
Please note that 1ShoppingCart order processing works great with all other (non-GoDaddy) hosts.
How does a customer, once they have signed up and become a member, cancel their membership (or get for a refund)?
If it’s Paypal, they could go into their Paypal account, and cancel their subscription themselves.
If it’s ClickBank, they can log in to their CB account, and cancel their subscription themselves.
If it’s any other payment processor or cart – like 1SiteAutomation.com, Authorize.net, Paypal Payments Pro, etc – then they have to ask you (the membership site owner) to cancel.
Except with CB, in all other cases, they have to ask you for a refund
Whether it’s a cancellation or a refund, log in to your Payment Processor (1shoppingcart, Authorize.net, etc), and make sure you perform the cancellation or refund there. DAP does not store any of the payment information of your subscriber. So both cancellations and refunds have to be performed at your Payment Processor.
Now that you’ve cancelled the actual charging of the customer at the payment processor level, you have to also take care of the customer within DAP – only for refunds.
Cancellation Of Ongoing Subscription in DAP
If this is the cancellation of an ongoing subscription, then no action required within the DAP Dashboard as far as the User is concerned. DAP already does “Pay As You Go” processing – which means, their account will automatically expire at the end of the current recurring period (eg., end of current month). The “Access End Date” of the user’s access to the Product will automatically expire if no new payments come in. And then they’ll automatically lose all access to the content that is part of that Product.
However, if this is the cancellation of a “trial”, where if the user comes back and signs up again for another trial a few weeks or months later, then you want the user to start all the way AT THE BEGINNING. So if it’s the cancellation of a “trial” then you must manually remove the user’s access to the product. So for that, follow the process below.
Refunds (and Cancellation of Trial) in DAP
If it’s a refund of the entire purchase, then…
If it’s a refund of just one recurring payment from among a series of subscription payments, or the cancellation of a trial, then you can go into the “Users > Manage” screen, search for the user, and do a “Rollback Access for Selected User(s) to the Product by 1 Recurring Cycle“.

IMPORTANT: PLEASE NOTE
The latest version of Paypal Payments Pro (called PAYFLOW) is not compatible with DAP and Recurring Billing Cycles, You will have to open a Paypal account with the older version of their Payments Pro Merchant service that is compatible with DAP. Please make sure to use the older version of PPP which has to be specially requested through their support team. In a future DAP release, we will make it compatible with the new version of PPP.
Please read this for more on Payflow and Paypal Payments PRO :
This post includes information about generating buy buttons for Paypal Website Payments Pro. It also has information about setting up 1-Click Upsells.
Even if you don’t wish to do upsells, you should follow the setup instructions in this page, for integrating your site with Paypal Website Payments Pro .
a) Log in to your Paypal account and click on the “Profile” link.
b) Go to Instant Payment Notification
c) If IPN is already enabled, and you already have a URL in that field, then skip ahead to Step 2.
Else, if IPN is not already enabled, then click on “Choose IPN Settings”
d) On the next screen, in the Notification URL field, enter…
Don’t forget to replace “YourSite.com” with your actual web site’s domain name.
e) Make sure “Receive IPN Messages” is selected.
f) Click on “Save”.
Log in to your Paypal account.
Go to Profile.
Click on Website Payment Preferences
Turn Auto Return to On (see image below)
Set Return URL to http://YourSite.com/dap/dap-thankyou.php
Scroll down further to the Payment Data Transfer (optional) section
Set Payment Data Transfer to On
Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page, and then Save the changes.
You will now see a green check mark image, with a long string of characters on line 2. That is your Paypal Identity Token. Copy that string.
Go back to DAP Dashboard > Setup > Config > Payment Processing > Paypal Identity Token field, and enter this string there, and save it.
<form name="DAPCartPaymentForm" method="post" action="https://yoursite.com/dap/checkout.php">
<input type="hidden" name="payment_succ_page" value="http://yoursite.com/members/"/>
<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Bronze Members" />
<input type="hidden" name="is_submitted" value="Y" />
<input type="hidden" name="btntype" value="buynow" />
<input type="hidden" name="is_last_upsell" value="N" />
<input type="hidden" name="payment_gateway" value="paypal" />
<div align="center"><input type="image" src="https://yoursite.com/dap/images/addtoorder1click.jpg" width="200" height="100" border="0" name="submit" /></div>
That’s it for Paypal Pro button generation.
You can either use the standalone cart page, and then customize the header and footer.php file.
Or you can put the cart right within a WordPress page on your site, so the cart will then take on your theme’s look and feel, and look like it were completely a part of your wordpress site.
To create custom header and footer, create two files by name cartheader.php & cartfooter.php
Upload them to the dap/inc/ folder.
Whatever HTML snippet you put in the above two files will show up as header & footer on the check out page.
While it looks like a LOT of steps, that is only because we have to explain the steps in detail so they are clear. In reality, it is very simple to set up, and starting from scratch, if you have DAP & SSL already installed, it shouldn’t take you more than 1/2 hour to set up your 1-Click Upsells/Downsells/OTO’s. And if you’re not using Upsells/Downsells, then it can be done even faster.
If you have any further questions, feel free to open a support ticket, and we will assist you in getting this going.
