    I buy $7,000 a month on eBay and plan on buying even higher quantities, I was wondering how I can monetize my buying with Affiliate marketing?

    An example of what I am doing. Right now I have my own small script that loads three search results every three seconds. I use PHP with file_get_contents.

    Basically it is loading the site onto my server file I am loading.

    Maybe I could add affiliate info to the links? Do some PHP and have it added.

    Dont know what eBay affiliate pays, but $7k a month, along with eBay bucks and then some Affiliate money would be extra.

    Thanks

    Wow that is alot of money! If you dont mind me asking, what do you buy and what do you do with it? I run a successful ebay business selling high-end makeup (Urban Decay, Guerlain, YSL, Bobbi Brown, etc.) We can work out a deal with commissions somehow. Let me know, thanks in advance.

    Are you looking to purchase through an eBay affiliate? Their commissions are a little different. eBay pays based on CPC but that CPC is determined by the number of sales.

    Sorry for not responding.

    I basically am buying gold jewelry and selling it to someone as scrap.

    I have changed a little on what I was doing. I was using my shared hosting server to run my script. I then bought a dedicated server from goDaddy for around $169 a month. Then after one day I started thinking, Why not just run my scripts on my computer from Localhost?

    So today I downloaded the wampserver and I am now running my searching script from localhost.

    A few things I am doing is curl, then modifying the results by adding a target to all links so they open in a new tab. I am using Jquery to refresh ever .5 to 1 second. Basically making it live search results.

    Anyways, if anyone has any ideas let me know and thanks for the replies

    I have messed with adding a Buy it Now button so if I see something I want I wont even have to go to the item page.

    I would think that since I am using localhost I could add affiliate links to the search results.

    This shows a little of what I have set up. I have the searches on the right, when I click on an item, it goes into the tab on the left.
