    During a recent review of eBay Partner Network publisher accounts and site metrics data for clicks your account drives to eBay.com, we determined that the traffic generated from your account is significantly less engaged with the eBay site as compared to the standards set by our other affiliates. While we appreciate your efforts to drive traffic to our Advertiser sites, we do not think that it is mutually beneficial to further our business relationship at this time. As a result, we will be expiring your eBay Partner Network account in 7 days and we request that you remove all of your eBay Partner Network affiliate links by that time. Payment will take place as per the Network Agreement for any traffic driven to eBay Advertiser sites prior to the expiration date of August 27, 2008.

    One of our account managers will contact you if a more appropriate business opportunity arises to work together again in the future.

    Regards,

    The eBay Partner Network

    It means you've been banned in an indirect manner. Time to sign up for a new account.

    it depends on where you live, I guess.
    ppl living in Asia seems quite hard in getting an US campaign approved for EPN

    then at least you can make a/cs much more easily.. Read up the threads (on making EPN a/c).. The info there is pretty detailed.

    From Ebay discussion board:

    Half to three quarters of a year is chump change to Ebay. I mean with millions of items listed and sold per day.. and the fees from buying/selling.. that's like less than a day's profits to them. Its sick.

    While it was my biggest source of income, it's not that big of a deal. Time to figure out what else works and exploit it.

    I still have another account so hopefull that doesn't get shut out.

    I did have a fucking low EPC, it was like 1.30. Maybe I won't worry about getting too many clicks with my other accounts. haha

    I'm at a few thousand per month with epc of around $25. I'm all whitehat (no stuffing) and I have not yet received the letter (knock on wood). This is the kind of shit that prevents me from leaving my day job.....total bullshit.

    Thats right, I never would rely only on one income source, like Ebay, Google, etc. because they can shut you or your business down from a minute to another.
