    I am trying to apply on ebay affiliate program in the next few days. My
    problem is do I need a google adsense if I have an ebay affiliate program?
    And if I don't get approved from ebay, how can I apply on Apprenticeship Program
    curriculum of hubpages?

      The Apprenticeship program is currently on hold.  I'm not sure why you would only want to apply if you aren't approved by eBay.

        I was hoping that I will be approved by ebay as an affiliate because I have been using it for a year now as a buyer.

      Hi iluv,

      As a few Hubbers have mentioned already, you do need AdSense to sign up for the eBay Affiliate program.

      You can still sign up for the Amazon program without AdSense, though.

        Oh that's great. But I thought amazon is for US members only. I hope that they also allow international members like me.

        How many hubs do I need to get approved in Amazon?

    It is necessary to have google adsense account first to apply for ebay.

        Most Hubbers will tell you that they earn most of their income from the HP Ads Program and Adsense.  Amazon and eBay earn poorly compared to those two, and it won't be worthwhile to write on HubPages if they are the only options you have, because you will earn very little money.

        You would be much better to find a site where you don't need your own Adsense account.

          Are there any site which do not need AdSense account for financial benefits

            Yes - Squidoo, Triond and bubblews to name a few.

              Thanks for suggestion. But ebay and amazon can stand alone in those sites that you have mentioned?

                Bubblews - No.
                Triond - No (I think)
                Squidoo have Amazon but as far as I remember, unlike HubPages, it's not through your own Amazon account, but just a share of their profit if a sale is made from your article page containing the Amazon ad. I don't remember if they have eBay.

                  I found out that Squidoo has ebay but I am not sure if it is also sharing of the profit.  Thanks for suggestion

    On HubPages, eBay is included as part of the Hub Ads program, and you can't run it as a standalone affiliate anymore.  And you can't be in the Hub Ads program if Google won't accept you into AdSense.  Buying on eBay has nothing to do with being an affiliate.

    Your entire problem as far as any affiliate programs go is that you only have a single Hub, it's not featured, it contains unrelated links and a watermarked image.

    If you want to join all the affiliate programs here, you really need about 50 hubs with media-rich, high-quality content.

      You meant to write ..."You CAN'T be in the Hub Ads program if Google won't accept you into Adsense". Damn typos - they can turn black into white.

      I am starting to create hubs that I will post as soon as I get approved. And I do not have Google AdSense since there is a rule of one account per household. I maintain a blog so making a post is not a problem for me. I have other ads account but it is not included in hubpages ad program

      1. relache profile image87

        You won't get approved for the ad program with no Hubs, so if you are waiting to get approved first, you just created an unresolvable situation for yourself.

        First you have to publish about 10-15 hubs on hubpages before you start applying for adsense. I got my adsense approval yesterday and that is why I want to shear this with you. When you must have done that, login to your account, go to my account, then earnings and finally on the settings. Click on the adsense portion to configure it. Make sure you follow the instruction that will be shown to you. SUCCESS!

          Thank you for sharing that info. But I am afraid I can't have google adsense because of the one account per household rule. Fortunately, the ebay told me that I should comply with their rules like having to publish related hubs. Thanks again

            Do not worry yourself about ebay because at times those messages are sent automatically when the device that receives it does not comprehend the information given to it and that was one of the reasons that delayed my approval for adsense before I followed the due process and got my adsense account associated with hubpages. You may be receiving the message from ebay because you have not associated with adsense. The one account household rule by adsense still stands. what you simply need is associating that your adsense account with hubpages. I have a hub which will soon be featured on hubpages and it is about Google adsense approval and association on hubpages, maybe i get you noticed when it is featured.

            Once you associate your adsense account with hubpages, I believe you will not receive such message from ebay again. Try and publish about five featured hubs and give a trial by associating your hubpages account with adsense if you already have approved account by adsense. Associating it is very simple without stress, so you do not need to create new adsense account when you already have one.

        I know many people who have more than one account in their household.  You need to prove your identity and it helps to use a different device with its own IP address.

        You need to sign into your disapproved Google account and click the Application Issues troubleshooter. Select "unapproved application" -- "account disapproved for being a duplicate".  This will provide a contact form to show you are a different person from the existing account holder.

      Fifty is too much because I got approved with 27 hubs.
