    Hey,

    I'm thinking in promote some eBay products and I though about their affiliate system. But I don't see people talking about eBay affiliate. So I'm wondering if it's easy to get an account?

    And what is the commission percentage? And Guide here about it?

    Regards,

    Its fairly easy but problem is if your product cost $10 so even if you put full 20% it still will not generate income and even no impression as they accept your product but it never go live, as I mention before, they want you to sell more expensive products because from $200 5% is more than 20% from $10. What I mean is, if your shop is small (redirection to one product will not make a sale in other in your shop means no commission for ebay) and cheap, forget about them, better to go google and advertise on ebay your product. You just waist your time speak with support they will investigate forever - and at the end will send you to faq. You lose money as well for open this feature for a month (you need open basic shop)

    Epn is a lot harder to get into than Amazon, that's probably why it's not talked a lot about here. I have a small website that earns with it, they changed the system and pay for "quality clicks" and if you don't deliver it's easy to get canned. The program isn't for cookie games or blackhat trickery.

    It's a great program to earn from if you get in, but there's a time and place for both eBay and Amazon.

    Think of the buyers on eBay. They are looking for discounts, used items, antiques, stuff you can't buy other places. Amazon is great for new stuff, electronics, etc..

    It all depends on what you're doing and what your business plan is.
