    okay we all know Ebay is shaving earnings but I have a solution. Me and another friend found our commission per click average..

    I would hope you all know how to find you average per click earnings. If yo don't know, just divide your earnings so far /(by) your clicks which we give you a rough estimate of commission per click. Example my and my friend average commission per click is say .20 per click. so that means we need to have 5000 clicks to make $1,000..

    Hope you get the point. if we can get say 20 people to post there commission per click then we can find the median average of commission per click and we can all find ot how many clicks we need to make X amount of money..

    Don't be scared.. Your stats change hourly daily. Ebay will never be able to track yo by this..

    Come on we need yaw!!!!!!!!!!

    So here is my commission per click(and I do whitehat:D:D:D)

    .29 PER CLICK

    I'm completely confused by the meaning of this thread... Why does posting our EPC's help?

    I never asked you to post you to post your EPC..

    Nope...

    How is this going to prevent EPN shaving earnings? Or even help us figure out how much they are shaving?

    Every source of clicks will have a different average, so unless you also know where they get clicks from, the data is useless.

    I'm not aware of any substantiated evidence of shaving by EPN either.

    CPUGEEK, have you got an anecdote for us or is there something we're missing?

    I think he's assuming that ebay do not shave across the board, so if we get a random and large enough sample we should be able to see discrepancies across the various EPC figures.

    Not sure if this is accurate though because conversions are a result of the traffic you attract.
    e.g. if i run a white hat product review site, then i'll probably get better converting clicks than a cookie stuffer or cloaking.

    or not.. :amish:

    As much as people bitch about E*P*N* I've never found any evidence of lead shaving. What is your evidence? In fact, I get about $400/month and it's one of my most consistent sources of income. I remember that a whole bunch of people's income tanked when they went from CJ to EPN, but mine hasn't varied much at all. I set my BANS sites up in February, 2008 and I've done nothing to them except for the required updates and it's been a consistent, autopilot money earner. :)

    Are you using the same traffic source? The same website , the same whatever? You need fresh traffic. Stale traffic earns less than what it did 5 months ago

    commissions, as in, what percentage of clicks do you earn from I believe. I earned 20-40 commissions per click, varied month to month, I'm banned now. I used to focus on stuffing power users specifically.

    Yes Blanko you are absolutely right. They are the same. He doesn't know what he's talking about.

    If your EPC is $30 that means that you are earning $30 per 100 clicks so that = $.30 per click.
