    While searching on here 2 nights ago I found this thread: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-10-100-per-day-without-selling-anything.html

    I thought I'd give it a try yesterday. So I signed up as an affiliate with Ebay and tested 2 different items. One for £29.99 and one for £3.99. I shared the affiliate link on a Facebook group I'm part of (Saab related). One item was for a repair kit which solves a very common problem and the other was a new key fob replacement. Tonight I checked Ebay partner site as it was just after 24 hours of posting the links I noticed I made £6.99.

    This literally took me a whole 5 minutes to create and share the links. I was accepted as an Ebay affiliate within 2 hours of applying so for 2 hours of one day I made £6.99 or just over $10.

    I'm just sharing my success, thanks to the original poster of that thread. I know it was directed more to creating ads on different classifieds sites (which I will try next) but I thought I'd give it a go on Facebook to test and it worked out.

    For all those people asking how to make 5 or 10 dollars a day, its not impossible, try this! Now imagine what 8-10 hours a day could make you. This is just the beginning!

    congratulations on your success.
    however, a big downside of epn is, you will only get commission if your buyer buys the item the same day.
    The 24 hour cookie is completely and utterly shutting down ALL affiliates. Here's what might happen: Buyer finds my link, sees the item, watches it for 4 days and bids a few minutes before it ends. I see 0 revenue for sending them to that auction because the cookie expired 3 days ago and they just type in ebay to get to their watched item. So this is only suited for BIN. And only if he buys within 24 hours.

    Thankyou! I'll be joining a huge amount of Facebook groups which have 10,000+ members for all different types of things i.e Pets, Clothing, Games, Electronics the list is endless and post links to good, cheap items and may even try more expensive things. The classifieds one seems a good way too, we only really have one main site here "Gumtree". I'm guessing it will be good to use vpn's, make multiple facebook accounts and classified accounts so its not constantly spam coming from them. I was thinking about making an online shop and do it but the hardest part about that is the ebay link expires after 24 hours. Would be a lot of work to change it everyday.

    Another good thing would be joining car groups and posting listing for cars that have under 24h to go.

    Will update this post in a week to see how my progress is going.

    Yeah I just mentioned about that in my latest post there, thats the downside. The better way is to post listings that are ending within 24 hours in that case. I guess a good idea to be on a lot of Facebook groups and watch for people asking where to get such and such items and post links in a comment hoping they buy that day. Having a website could work too if you are using items that are constantly up and have a massive stock, changing the url for every item.

    That I can't say. I just applied, gave them a reason as to how I can benefit them becoming an affiliate. I didn't think I would get accepted as I heard it was hard. 2 hours later I got an email to say congratulations even though it says it takes 2 days to get a decision lol

    Congrats mate, always good when you give something a go and it works out.

    If I remember rightly I was turned down as an ebay affiliate years ago, have they relaxed the rules recently because I have seen a few threads where people say they got accepted immediately.

    Thanks mate! It was one of a few different things I was going to try. The other was drop shipping. This was the more easier and quicker option to try, doesn't mean I'll not try the drop shipping too.

    I'm not sure what their rules are. On the part it asks you about your business and how you can get traffic to their site I just told them I run such and such a business and I want to promote such and such a product to my clients. I think the main thing is you have a website at least. I'm not sure if the rules are different in different countries. I'm in the UK if that makes any difference.

    Nope was a post I seen a few nights ago. The post link is in my original post. I took that and used my own method of using Facebook rather than classifieds.

    Starting tomorrow I'll be aiming for at least double and try progress each day and find new methods. I'd be happy with £50 to £100 per day. I've heard of people making thousands doing this on Ebay alone, would like to get there myself someday.

    funny how you got accepted that quickly, it took me like 25 days. But yeah this is a nice method to generate some change. Just one thing, well done on making that £6.99 in 5 minutes but you will not make that much everyday, well i dont. maybe if you join more groups with different niches then yh £10 a day shouldnt be a problem. currently i'm sticking with the car niche only and i can generate from £0.25 to £30 a day. All i want to say is that try twisting it up a little bit and believe me your income will grow.

    What "business model" did you choose for your eBay affiliate account?

    Congratulations man! :)

    Only a suggestion to improve your earnings:

    I see that you have around 650 visitors that have spent $100 on the items you were promoting, but eBay only paid you $7. Try finding the same or similar item on Alibaba or other cheap stores, open a Shopify store or sell them on eBay for 10x price. And when someone orders, you just go to Alibaba, buy the item, put their shipping address and you're good to go. I think you can earn a lot more this way.
