    Oh that hurts! I just got rejected by eBay! I read Paul's post and tried to follow, but it asked me all kinds of info. I gave them my HP URL as well as one of my personal blogs that's 2+ years old and gets 20,000+ views/month. So what gives? Paul???!!!

    Here's the email I received from them:

    Thank you for applying to the eBay Partner Network. We regret to inform you that we cannot accept your application at this time.

    Sheesh, so I am more than capable of attracting Amazon buyers for eBay buyers are that much different? I give up...

      Just from glancing over your Hubs, my guess would be that this is one of the main reasons you've been rejected.  A lot of your Hubs don't seem to be topics that would really drive sales.

        I agree, Relache, which is why I gave them the URL's to my other hubs which DO drive sales.

        Are you kidding?

        Man, if you are not.... you could have taken that to the media and launced a lawsuit for discrimination.

        Please tell me that you are kidding?

          it's dry humor, but i did get rejected, probably because i'm a liberal with long hair.

            Well, I'm somewhat of a liberal AND I have long hair. Hmmm....I smell a class action lawsuit on the horizon! smile

      Is the personal blog you submitted on it's own domain? Or, is it hosted by blogspot or wordpress?

    Poor you sad You are missing out on all that money. I've made about $10 from Ebay in my two years here smile

      Hey, $10 would've bought you and me a cuppa coffee -- hopefully here in Connecticut! Maybe Amazon sales would've paid for the train ticket! smile

    I reckon it's because you have short legs and wear a white bib. Discrimination! I got my dog to sue the council for building the footpath too close to his ass. smile
    You may consider doing the same!

    Very happy to have been suspicious (of eBay) and lazy (on my own account), thus having expended zero effort on eBay application(s). 

    Must confess I still buy an item now and again through 'em, though.  Kind of like a chocolate addiction....

    I am still being looked at by Ebay, but the domain thing was a headeche. I have questioned them over where is the domain and just did what the hub people told me to do. I have had no response yet but reading these comments I am not holding out any hope. I have only been going just over a week and although my content would be useful to sell things on ebay have no wish to worry too much about them.

    That sux Irohner.  I was just excepted by ebay last week and I posted the steps I took here http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/19778#post317983

    I was rejected by them my first week here, but I tried again after Paul made his post about the ebay staying here with HP, this time with success.  I'm getting way more traffic to my amazon products than I am with ebay so it's no big loss if the pull away.

    Mark Knowles wrote a hub on affiliates and he says that he is earning maybe $90 a month with ebay and closing in on $1000 a month with amazon.  I think that says a lot.

      Yeah, that's what I'm hearing, LWR. I guess I'll just keep moving forward with Amazon and Adsense! Thx!

      I'd agree with that...and when they go to their "quality click" payment scheme it'll be even less. I just did the figures, and my payment halves with their new scheme (not that it was much to begin with, but it means I won't be concentrating on expanding eBay for some time, if at all). At least Amazon are open with their levels of payment and are not hiding it behind undisclosed metrics. The quality of Amazon's program is better, and the rules are not constantly changing.
