    Overview:

    Using an Ebay seller account, post an auction. Find an email submit offer that is giving away said product. You should probably find the affiliate offer first. Get a domain and redirect and mask to your affiliate link. Now use a second ebay account to ask a question, making sure to find a way to discreetly add your domain. Now using your seller account again, confirm that the domain and offer is legit and safe to do. Make sure you post the question to the listing. You can know drive traffic from ebay without getting your accounts closed and auctions canceled. Of course you will need to pay for the listings, but that is just like paying for advertising, just a lot cheaper. You can also use this method to push traffic from ebay to your site, then bounce them back to ebay thru EPN. This is called roundtripping, but it would be very hard to catch on to this as long as you don't make connections between your accounts. The traffic will be type in traffic and hard to discover where it is coming from. Feel free to twist this method. I guess what I'm trying to say is you can use this method to push traffic to all kinds of stuff, just use some creative juices.

    What you will need:

    1 Ebay Seller account

    1 Ebay Buyer account

    Affiliate Network Accounts

    Domain redirected and masked


    What to do:

    Choose a product that matches some of your affiliate offers. For this example we will use an ipod. Go to Ebay and post an auction for an Ipod with your seller account.

    Get your domain and redirect it to a free ipod email submit. Don't forget to mask it.

    Now that the auction is up, use your buyer account to ask a question about the item you just posted. It should go something like this: I saw these free ipods, www.yournewdomain.com, think it's legit?

    Now using your seller account answer the question saying something like yes it is legit, that's where I got mine. Click the post question to auction box so your affiliate link will now show on your auction. It won't be an active link, but most users know how to copy and paste.

    Forgot to mention, I have been using this method for a while. I have been roundtripping lately. I spend about $300-$500 in auctions to make about $2000-$3000. My epc stays around $0.25.

    Yeah from this method. Back in the day, before roundtripping was outlawed, I was making around $4000-$6000 a month... But I was able to put clickable links on my auctions then too...

    I figured this method would be too much work for many. This is why I'm not concerned with saturation...

    Seems somewhat ok but what about the actually item your selling on ebay? Ebay will watch for to many people canceling their auction before it expires?

    So your needing a real Ipod in case someone buys it?
    Because as others say Ebay will frown very hard after six or seven end auction early

    How many auctions did you have to do for $2000 MONTHLY?
    What about Ebay fees?

    Were your accounts throwaway?
    I was warned about cancelling auctions
    Does this really work? As I have had a few affiliate links in about me page and got nothing.I posted auctions with same products as affiliate links

    This looks pretty straight forward, could possibly be done with free trial offers too..

    My guess would be to list the item for more than others are selling so if you start catching flak for canceling too many listings, worst comes to worst someone overpays you for the item then you just dropship from someone else :p.

    Interesting method. I might consider trying it. Do you think this would work well with offers that would require CC #s?

    Do you hide the traffic source from your network?

    Err, back on topic. If you want to generate a ton of traffic from this method, you should list the ipod or whatever on $1 reserve - sounds crazy huh? But these $1 reserve auctions get a ton of views.

    Then using your 2nd ebay account, you set your autobid to something like $100 more than the buy now price on most other ipod auctions. One of two things will happen here, either your second account will win the auction, but will back out of the transaction. (=no ebay success fees) or some dumb ass will outbid you and pay >$100 more than market rates.

    Simply 'buy now' another ipod for $100 less, and give them your auction winners address for shipping. Make a cool $80 on the deal anyway.

    :)
