I bought something through one of my ads and didn't get squat.
There's a 60/40 split of earnings with HubPages. 60% of the time the sales go to you, 40% of the time, sales go to them.
And there's no way of predicting which sales goes where when.
I thought this meant that the total sale was divided 60/40, not the total number of sales. That is, each sale got divided 60% for us and 40% for HP, every time?
It's strictly 60/40 (though the 40% can be further divvied up to an Author Referrer or a Traffic Referrer) split on the page views.
So it's not dividing up each individual sale, or even the sum of the sales, but the impressions.
This could mean that on any given day or week your 60% you could have 5 people click through and 3 buy, you get 100% of the commission. HubPages 40% share of the page impressions may have NO ONE click through at all.
And the reverse can be true too.
I speaking more in terms of general. Say it is your turn, so to speak, your 60%, and you click an ebay item. Do you get the revenue?
I know that buying things from your own affiliates doesn't get you any commission, but does ebay?
Check the Ebay Terms of Service.
I know that Amazon does not allow a person to buy through their own links.
I think it would depend on whether the registration you use to buy items is the same as the one that allows you to generate affiliate links. If they're the same and the Program Sponsor doesn't allow it, then it wouldn't be hard for them to void all commissions on those sales.
So I would need to check with CJ? Where would I look to see what the rules are?
No idea. I don't have an Ebay affiliate account.
If you do you should be able to dig around and look through the Terms Of Service or Terms & Conditions.
If anything looks vaguely like it's what we're talking about copy and paste it here so we can discuss it further.
Ok, So I found the Terms... I have a few questions:
1. You will not be compensated for paid search traffic purchased from Google.com, Yahoo.com, MSN.com, nor from any of their content networks, such as Google AdSense, Yahoo! Publisher Network, and MSN ContentAds, if it is linked directly to the eBay.com, eBay Express, or eBay Store domains (not "Commission Earning Activity").
This basically means that you don't recieve commissin unless it's from your link, correct?
I'm not sure about these:
2. As part of the Program, CJ or eBay may provide you with tools, products, and creative assets (collectively, "Assets") that include information that helps track Transactions generated by You and attribute them to Your Account. You will use each of these Assets only in their intended manner as instructed by CJ, and will not corrupt, modify, or disable them. You will not deliver any eBay-related cookies or other tracking tags to the computers of users that are merely viewing Your advertisements or while Your applications are merely active or open.
3. You will not make any commitments or representations on behalf of eBay with regard to any relationship you enter into with Your Sub-Publishers, Distribution Partners, or any other third parties (collectively, "Agents") in connection with your promotion of an eBay site. You will ensure that Your Agents agree to terms and conditions that are at least as restrictive as the PSA and these Terms and Conditions, subject to applicable law, and shall include a provision in such terms and conditions that eBay is a third party beneficiary. Any violation by Your Agents of the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall constitute a violation by You, and CJ and eBay shall have full recourse against You with respect to such a violation, including without limitation, suspension or termination from the Program.
I didn't see anything about personal sales... :-\ So I'm still confused.

I've been given the greenlight by HP HQ to write this and also post it on the forum for feedback. The reason I'm posting it for feedback is to see whether or not it's understandable to brand new hubbers. Is there...

Hi all,Fawntia has created a new interface that allows Hubbers using the eBay Program as part of the HubPages Earnings Program to view sales and revenue by Hub, and winning bids, on one screen. (As I posted almost 2...

I think HP could allow some revenue from Ebay or vice versa. I am not entirely sure how eBay works on both ends, but it would be nice to receive compensation from winning bids. That's my two cents.

I was just wondering, how many people read terms and conditions from beginning to the end when buying a product or when downloading an application
