    I think this creates a huge gap in the industry, a lot of traffic that needs to be monetized will be redirected but where? For those who don’t know this was their PPC division not affiliate and we are talking about a ton of money ... which companies and feeds are you guys using? Feel free to share experience...shopping feeds, xml, yahoo search feeds -> anything that works ... including syndicators and/or sub syndicators...

    I didn't know, it is great news! I will not cry for this gang of liars. They had the audacity to block my account arbitrarily and under the false pretext that I was doing stuffing cookie. Absolute lie! It happened a few days before receiving my first payment.

    I know very well what eBay Commerce Network represents! I am obviously talking about their PPC program. No need to write a message to tell me what I already know. Their PPC program was working fine at the beginning, everyone is ok to say that. But things changed considerably a few years ago (ex: pay per click for items dropped .....).
    I had created a merchant site that worked well. My traffic was organic. At that time I was making money with this site and I decided to try my luck with Ebay Partner Network. I bought a script here http://www.datafeedscripts.net/ and I signed up for their PPC program. My application was accepted, I received about a hundred clicks every month. When I reached the minimum in order to be paid, my account was closed 3 days from the due date of the first payment. False motive: "Cookie stuffing". I have already written and I rewrite! IT IS AN ABSOLUTE LIE! PURE DEFAMATION! I wrote them several times asking for explanations, they never answered me. Apparently the same thing happened to a lot of people. I read a lot of negative comments from that moment on, and it went downhill until the final closure of their program.
