    I used to make a decent amount of money as an Ebay affiliate using the BANS program. I still have one BANS store which I haven't touched for a while that brings in between £ 20-£ 75 a month but I hate the functionality of the site and I'm now looking at Wordpress as an alternative.

    The problem is I can't find any decent Ebay Wordpress plugins that appear to be well supported and RECENTLY supported. I know about PHPbay and Auction2post but their home pages look like they haven't been touched in years.

    There are also some free Wordpress plugins but whenever I have tried them I end up getting 0 commission which makes me believe they may be inserting their own Ebay ID into the code.

    Is anyone else still making money from Ebay Partner Network and if so then how are you displaying your feeds ?

    Haha..... thought I was the only BANS user left. Also have several sites running Auction2post and phpbay with varying degrees of success.

    The interesting thing is that the new owners of auction2post finally released A2P v2.0 a few weeks ago. Took them a couple of years to get to this point. Anyhow, I've already upgraded my sites to the new version and am impressed with the new features, especially the addition of PPC ad blocks which replace the masked eBay roverlinks upon expiry. The trick is to keep your expired ads (great for SEO purposes) which can be monetized using the PPC ad blocks (adsense,amazon,etc).

    Early days yet but I'm already earning more from PPC advertising than EPN. Also continuing to use phpbay widget in my sidebar.

    i use easybay plugin for wordpress, it adds live auctions to your sidebar or posts and pages. when a auction finishes it automatically finds another one to replace it, if you want to see it in action then pm me and i'll send you the link to my live site

    i too have been exploring the option of re-establishing an old site that used to do quite well with the bans software. I have currently started to rebuild it using wp and have been hunting for a solution. I think the A2P plugin maybe the way forward. I'm surprised at what seems to be very few people engaged in the epn program nowadays, surely its not dead!
