    Thank you for applying to the eBay Partner Network. We regret to inform you that we cannot accept your application at this time.

    Like many other affiliate programs, eBay Partner Network has a thorough application vetting process to ensure a good fit between a potential affiliate and the goals of the network. There are a number of reasons why your eBay Partner Network application may have been declined. Some of these include:

    * You are not in compliance with the eBay Partner Network Agreement and/or Code of Conduct.
    * The stated website that you plan to promote us from is non-functioning or inaccessible
    * The quality of your stated website is not in line with our network standards
    * The information you submitted in your application (contact information and your description of how you plan to promote eBay Partner Network) is incomplete or unclear
    * Your business model or stated website does not appear to be one that would attract eBay buyers (the eBay Partner Network does not currently provide commissions for bringing eBay sellers or listings to the site)
    * Your business model involves re-directing traffic directly to eBay from display ad networks or paid search (no longer allowed per our Terms and Conditions)
    * Your business model involves a sub-affiliate model (no longer allowed per our Terms and Conditions)

    If you feel that your application deserves a re-review, please forward any additional information that you would like us to consider to our Customer Support Team. It is not necessary to submit an additional application with a different email address. Requests that contain no new information about your promotional methods will not be reconsidered.

    Yes, first time with no problems.
    I listed 5 websites that I own (have many more), some of them didnt even have content.

    I got in first time too, maybe they don't like micro niche sites?? I'm not exactly sure as I used one of my authority sites when I applied. I know that they do like quality though, so maybe they frown on autoblogs??

    The don't accept people with 4 billion+ thanks... that's common knowledge.

    I applied a while back and I have some very decent sites that
    have unique content, lots of backlinks and good PR but they sent
    me a similar turn down email.

    I have no idea why either so I scuttled the idea of promoting
    them and moved on... makes no sense why they turn down some
    people.

    A lot of members including me have had this problem lately. One common denominator that I have noticed is that we are using WP-Robot..

    I failed couple times too before, but then came across this blog
    HTML:
    http://www.wpcontempo.com/how-to-get-accepted-by-ebay-partner-network/
    and it gave me couple ideas on what to do and even more important - what not to do. Have a look yourself, you might find useful stuff there. Even better - put a post with your website address, Sam really knows his stuff and might give you an idea or two. Who knows...

    I'm from UK, and i didn't get accepted.

    Why not try again, it may work this time. Someone may just select all and decline selected ones. Because they do get loads of applications, and it would probably take months to check each and every single one.

    If you apply again once a week until they accept you. From what i see, there is nothing wrong with your site.

    I created a program that assist power buyers on eBay and has been approved by eBay dev team. Actually it's geared for power buyers to be able to buy more BUY IT NOW items. Have just a handful of users first few months where total sales from just a few people are 1.5-2Million a month using Buy It Now items only.

    Would EPN work for this type of "traffic" driver. ...where it's repeat buyers but most of the items they wouldn't have otherwise purchased where our tool helps them to see if faster and streamline the decision making and checkout process?

    Any guestimate (if this type of model works for EPN) that if we drove 5 buyer ID's on eBay to purchase 1 million/month in electronic items on eBay, what that would equate to? (a rough guesstimate does the trick for now ;)

    Thanks so much in advance! I've got a great tool ...not just trying to figure out how to monetize on it !

    $1.26 or so. EPN is (basically) a PPC program.
