    As of now I'm quite happy with Amazon but I wonder if Ebay's affiliate program is equal or better?

    Never actually got involved with ebay so I would like to hear some experiences with them. From my knowledge however, it seems that Amazon converts better than Ebay... but I guess this is case by case.

    Any pros and cons would be greatly appreciated.

    Just like to share from my experiences is that one thing I really like about Amazon is that if a user clicks on your aff link, whatever they buy with it within that 24 hour span you get those earnings. The one thing I don't like is that most of their affiliate earnings are volume based and start from 4%. The most I've ever got through volume is up to 8% but those are only during the peak seasons. Usually avg. 7% per month but I never ever hit that 10% mark with Amazon and this is why I'm wondering if Ebay is better.

    With Ebay, it seems that depending on the niche, you can get way more than 10%. But again, I'm thinking that the chances of conversion is not as high compared to Amazon.

    Again, it'd be nice if someone could share their experience between Amazon vs Ebay!

    Thanks.
