Years back, many Hubbers have complained about not making substantial money from Hubpages' Ebay programme. Time have passed and out of curiosity, is their anyone out there now making decent income from Hubpages Ebay programme.
Ebay had already closed my account because I didn't earn a single cent since 6 years ago.
Same goes with Amazon.
Years back, professional eBay affiliates worked out that the best way to make money from eBay ads was to concentrate on "Buy It Now" listings only. Unfortunately, HubPages ignored that advice and their eBay capsules included products from auctions, meaning they didn't earn much. For that reason, many people gave up on them and switched to using Amazon instead.
HubPages has since modified their eBay capsules so they use Buy It Now listings only - but it was too late, I think, because so many Hubbers had already given up on them. I know I never went back and edited my Hubs to include them.
The buy it now items work well for my type of hubs because I always promote the items which I use in a tutorial or product hub. The stats are great, unlike, Amazon, they show every individual hub which has resulted in a sale. That can't be bad. I really can't fault it. I have one e-bay and one Amazon ad in everyone of my hubs.
I think everyone has exited eBay. If there is otherwise, love to hear it. Am looking for new.
I have not had a penny from eBay, quite possibly because I never have used an eBay capsule. Perhaps it is because I don't understand eBay... never shopped there, myself. On the other hand, Amazon has been quite good for me.
I regularly add an eBay capsule and receive the occasional sale, definitely worth it.
really,when you say occasional do you mean you receive commission from Ebay once in a blue moon and would you recommend Ebay capsule.
Almost every month I receive at least one sale from e-bay. Once the commission was greater than my total earnings from HubPages for the month. HubPages improved the way the capsules worked a long time ago, I don't think many people thought it was worth it but the way I look at it is that. any money is better than no money.
I've made as much as a couple hundred bucks at a time with an ebay sale. This is very very rare, but too good an upside for me to ditch ebay ads where they fit well.
Just returned to say that I had six sales from e-Bay yesterday. It does not happen every day but when it does, what a difference it makes.
Six sales in one day. I will conclude it is worth the trial. I am checking out your hubs to see how you used the capsules. Thanks.
That can happen. No reason to doubt it either. Someone is in shopping mode, they enter ebay from your page and your ebay ad - then whatever they buy, I believe, you get a commission from for it was you that provided the portal to the shopping zone.
I believe I've had more than six in a day...but only small sales and small commissions. Someone entered ebay from my advert, and spent some cash.
Years ago I read that a man wrote a hub about a 57 Chevy, had an ebay ad with a pristine or restored 57 Chevy on the page....someone bought the car for one hundred thousand bucks, the hubpages guy made a ten thousand commission on it. Don't quote me on those numbers, I'm going off of memory - but such things happen.
Welcome to my world of felting, I hope you enjoy your visit.
In my case no! I have stopped using the site products on most of my hubs.
A while back, a little known secret was that eBay ads paid either per ad view or per click (can't remember which).
I made a bit every single day, which came out to being far more than the income from Amazon. So I switched all of my Amazon capsules to eBay.
At some point in the past couple of years, that changed and my income from eBay went strictly to sales. I did make a few, but they were unreliable - so I converted back.
Amazon is ubiquitous, and if somebody clicks one of your Amazon ads then buys something else in the next day or so from Amazon (which happens often) without clicking on another Amazon ad first - you still get the commission. Most of the Amazon money I make is from sales of products that I didn't link to at all. Can't say the same for eBay.
Please, does anyone knows the number of Ebay and Amazon capsules allowed on a single article.

Authoring Hubs is about sharing and spreading ideas. Most of what we do is word-based, and a capsule to show off related Zazzle stuff would be an eye-catching way to allow readers interested in those ideas to buy...

Hey all,I posted this query in an older thread of mine with no joy. In retrospect, I probably should have posted the question independently:

After the Ebay changes that occured about 2 months or so ago, am not earning from it even a single cent. Have you been affected by the Ebay changes? What next for those who cannot earn with Ebay and Amazon?
