    I'm searching an information on this, how to legally sell affiliate products on Ebay.

    How to properly setup the page on Ebay for what I want to sell to not get banned?

    Any advice on this?

    Tnx

    Some affiliate products even some CPA do well on ebay. Just make sure that after the ebay & paypal fees you have enough left over to make it worthwhile. You may also want to make sure that the affiliate program administrator is ok with this method. It is completely legit since the purchase is real and cannot be faked.

    1. List the item as you would do for any other product.
    2. When the item sells, use a special small HTML file (make ahead of time) to register your affiliate ID as seller (you may also want to clear your cache and cookies before using the HTML file).
    3. Enter the buyers name and address in the sales form - verify that the ship to address is that of the buyer before completing the purchase.
    4. Pay for the item using paypal (many credit card companies flag alternate delivery addresses)

    How to make the HTML file (save on desktop):
    1. Copy the affiliate URL for the item - make sure your ID appears in the link.
    2. Open notepad
    3. Paste the URL in notepad.
    4. Save file with the extension html - Very important: use save as type "all files". example. deliveripod.html
    5. On your desktop you will see an icon for firefox, chrome, opera or IR (depends on your default browser) with the name you used. (if you see a text file, you forgot to save as type "all files")
    6. Whenever you need to fill an order, just click on this icon and proceed as indicated above.
    7. You need to make a separate HTML file for each product.
    8. It is also possible to have one HTML file containing lots of different affiliate URLs for several different products. This however requires a bit more knowledge about HTML.
    9. If you need extra help (I doubt you will) PM me.
    Hope this helps. :)

    Lol, just slap some Clickbank / Shareasale banner on your item sales page. It works for me ;-)
