As I browse through articles on the site, it seems as though I see very little Ebay ads on hubs. What gives?
I think that most people felt that that they did not make many sales from E-Bay. I still think it worthwhile as I do make the occasional sale from them.
Ebay can be well worth your time. I've made some big sales with Ebay, but admittedly, this is rare. You are definitely not going to hurt yourself using Ebay ads. Do it.
It isn't always easy t find eBay products that directly relate to your hub now that HP have made that stricter, and they don't always stay the same. If an item is no longer available it will substitute something else in the eBay ad to replace it. I have personally made more money here from eBay ads than I have from Amazon.
I just published my 10th article. The applications for Adsense and Amazon went through right away, but the Ebay application is still pending. It could be many are still waiting for the application to finish.
I have a personal Ebay account, not a store, where I sometimes have products for sale that are closely related to my Hubs. Am I permitted to use my own Ebay listings?
Have never considered doing that, don't really know the answer, I usually use the keywords related to my hub to find products. My feeling is that you would need to keep a continual check on your own listings and hubs in case something sold. I prefer the keyword search. I am based in the UK so not sure that this would work anyway!
I have never made any money on Amazon or E-bay ads in my 4 months here at 46 hubs....

In other words, I know that everybody will not have the same answer, but I was wondering this: Whether there are more who are unsatisfied or satisfied?

Can we remove ebay reports from our earnings page?I no longer use Ebay because they don't pay so I might as well remove them from the stats.

eBay is changing its affiliate scheme in October and there is one HUGE change which has been sneaked in.Their cookie is now a 24-hour cookie, same as Amazon. For Hubbers, that makes eBay effectively worthless and...

I've earned only $3.11 since I set up the eBay program, in contrast with a couple hundred from the Adsense program during the same timeframe. (1) is something set up wrong somewhere? If not, (2) can I opt-out of the...

Gave it up and removed my remaining eBay capsules. I guess my hubs just aren't suited for them. Might give it another shot if the Buy It Now option becomes available though.
