eBay’s Affiliate Program has been one of the most popular options for prospect affiliate marketers. It makes a lot of sense at first glance. If you’re selling on eBay, and you sell to visitors funneled from your own website, you can actually get paid twice. You can also get paid for purchases on other sellers’ products.
All members of eBay Partner Network now have improved reporting, cross-device tracking, better stability, and more payment options. The program now features rate cards based on percent of sale.
ebay used to reward partners with a percent of the revenue from any qualifying transactions. So, if eBay generated $8 in revenue from selling a collectible, partners would earn 50% of that amount, or $4. The new model is based on percent of sale both by region and by sub-category. So, for collectibles, partners can earn 1%, 3%, or 4% of the purchase price, depending on the subcategory in which the item is. This gives partners the power to focus their efforts on where they can earn the most commission.
The goal of this change is to give partners more consistent, predictable earnings. It will also give ebay more flexibility to reward specific behaviors at the sub-category level that they don’t have today.
Another change, related to the rate card, is that ebay removed the bonus paid for partners who attracted new or reactivated buyers (200%) to return to eBay. Instead, ebay will shift toward issuing strategic bonuses selectively to partners that demonstrate the ability to consistently acquire high-quality buyers for eBay.
eBay Partner Network’s wide range of inventory, global brand and high conversion rates, viewed as one of the most attractive affiliate programs for publishers in the world. ebay are constantly improving its data structure, tools and compensation algorithm to ensure that the program is as user friendly and ROI positive as possible for publishers.
There is no restriction concerning participating in the eBay Partner Network along with other affiliate programs. Many ebay affiliates participate in multiple programs.
