ClickFunnels is a great software product with a ton of functions. People use it for a wide range of reasons. However, one of the most common is to sell a product.
So, if this is something you’re wanting to do then you’ll also need to know how to set up your checkout page.
So, here I’m going to cover how you can get your checkout page set up quickly and also point you in the direction of a few resources that will help you out.

Using a Funnel With an Existing Checkout Page
Once you’re logged into your account, one of the quickest and easiest ways to get your funnel up and running is to use one of the pre-designed templates in the funnel cookbook.
To access this page, simply click on “funnels” at the top of your dashboard, then go to “start a new funnel”. On the next page select the “funnel cookbook”.
Then, under “Type of Funnel”, select the “Sell A Product”. This option will then eliminate all the funnels that are no good for selling products and only show you the funnel templates that are designed specifically for this purpose.
Once you’ve done this, you will be left with twelve product funnels to choose from. They’ll look like this:
All these funnels will already have a checkout page.
Spend a few minutes choosing the one you like. You can, of course, customise it how you like later.
Accepting Payments in Your Funnel
Once you’ve selected the funnel you want to use and have customised it how you like, you will then need to connect it to your chosen payment gateway.
Personally, I like to use Stripe, but they all work well.
For a regularly updated guide on how to integrate your payment gateway, see this article.
Once you’ve connected up to your payment gateway, it’s important to first test your order form before making your funnel live. The last thing you want to do is spend money driving traffic to your funnel and find out later that the payment processor isn’t hooked up correctly.
To test your payment processor I’ve listed the ‘how to” doc for some of the more popular options for your convenience:
- Stripe order form testing
- PayPal order form testing
- Ontraport order form testing
- NMI order from testing
- EasyPayDirect order form testing
Adding Upsell & Downsell Products
In most cases, you’re also probably going to want to add upsell and or downhill products.
I could tell you exactly how to do it here. However, since ClickFunnels do occasionally change the way they do things to make the process more efficient it makes sense to just refer you to this doc for the steps.
How To Have Huge Success With ClickFunnels
Whether you have already signed up for an account yet, one of the best ways to have huge success with ClickFunnels, in my opinion, is through the Funnel Builder Secrets program.
