    Dear Affiliate,


    As you may already know, our newest release of the eBay Partner Network went live on September 10th. This new release incorporates additional reporting functionality to more easily track your traffic's performance on eBay, as well as a new Campaign Quality Report that will help you determine the quality of new registered users you send to the US program. As of November 1st, ACRUs payouts for all publishers in the US program will calculated using these quality tiers. For a full description of all the new features in this release, please check out our blog post about it from last Friday.


    Please also note that the Network Agreement and Advertiser Terms and Conditions have been updated with this release. Please review these documents thoroughly to make sure you fully understand the updated policies. Some updates you may want to pay special attention to include:

    - The eBay UK and eBay FR programs now allow eBay sellers to become affiliates (in their programs.)
    - Any transaction resulting from traffic that has been redirected off of an Advertiser site (e.g. eBay.com) will be disqualified, and you will not receive commissions.
    - Paid Search: Bidding on KW eBay or any variations is not permitted in any program.
    - If you choose PayPal as a payment method, your PayPal account must be verified in order for your payment to be released. To learn more about how to verify your account, go to hxxps://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=p/gen/verification-faq-outside

    The updated Network Agreement and Advertiser Terms and Conditions will go into effect for existing publishers on September 19th. If you choose not to accept any terms set forth by the new policies, you may end our affiliate agreement before September 19th by closing your account under the Account: Business Information section of the eBay Partner Network interface. Please ensure before you close your account that a payment method has been entered and is correct as you will not be able to edit this information after you have closed your account. If you have any questions regarding the new policies, please contact customer service.

    Regards,

    The eBay Partner Network Team

    thats about how I read it. When I got the email.

    I'm sure theres ways around. But when there specifically stating it, then I'm sure somone fessed up and told them something they shouldnt.

    lol.
    noobs



    so, how would they know someone visited their site before yours?
    sessions.
    cookies.
    ip tracking.

    it's not rocket science people.
    User vists egay.com/auction/large_giant_dildo-@@@@LOOOK@@@@ , etc.

    egay sets up a session for them, sets a cookie with what time they arrived , tracking info, whatever..

    you're stuffing the dildo auction, so their computer hits your rover link..
    egay looks at the session, says OH WAT? Theyz wuz just at egay.com 2 minutes ago?! WAT??! already been herez? oh snap! no credit for joo mr black hat noob with elite script you paid 500$ for.
    etc.

    I was Dreading this day, but I guess we have to know that BH techniques are Temporary and a quick money maker....and it looks as if this is exactly what it was in this case.

    What did everyone think was going to happen? I mean i can't believe everyone went around selling this stuff. If those in the loop would have kept quiet, they could have went on making thousands a week for years to come.

    Oh if thats the case then the change would not affect me as I was not stuffing auctions (I was stuffing my own sites). Oh wait I don't have a EPN account anymore.

    Thanks Einstein. As usual your condescending response in about 97% of your posts is just a breath of fresh air...douche.
