Anyone noticing any issues with ebay partner network. I see hits and clicks but no pay what so ever since mid December. There is a discussion going on over at the EPN forum. Anyone witnessing something like this here.
I had an unbelievably great December and January has been good as well. I've hat hits, clicks, and my click value is steadily increasing.
My December was wonderful compared to usual. January is doing pretty well as well; hoping it continues to rise.
There seems to be a growing trend of every hubber including Ebay products instead of Amazon. Are the returns better in Ebay?
eBay has a longer cookie. With Amazon, if someone clicks through on an ad but doesn't buy there and then, that's the end of it. With eBay, you have a period of time when you'll still get the commission if they come back and buy later.
However, eBay isn't accepting anyone unless they have their own website, so there's no point in applying if you only have Hubs.
No problems with EPN here either.
Charanjeet, whether the returns are better on Ebay or Amazon really has a lot to do with the products that you are promoting. Ebay is great for stuff that you can't get elsewhere such as collectibles. But when it comes to things like books and DVDs, I stick with Amazon.
For the most part though, I include both capsules on most of my product-related hubs.
I have not had any problems with EPN, but then again I do not really use it much.
By the sounds of it though it could be that people were getting a lot of click throughs, but not actually selling anything. I know as soon as Christmas passed my sales dropped like a stone (Went from earning $60-$100 a day off hubpages down to around $5-$15 a day).
It is not unfeasable that people were simply trying to find out more about products which they already had, and if there were no sales, there would be no payments from the EPN.
Currently removing ebay capsules till they sort everything out.
Rudra, why would you remove them? You're seeing clicks, they may just be having issues reporting sales. I am still seeing sales, as are a lot of others. If you remove them. You just have to add them back. I did go to the EPN forums, and did not find the threads you're talking about. May have just skipped them bc they weren't titled accordingly or something though. You may just be seeing more clicks than sells, that's nothing out of the ordinary.
charanjeet kaur, some states have banned Amazon for tax purposes or something. I'm not sure the details, as my state isn't affected (yet). Plus, eBay has a longer cookie.
I was rejected as an ebay affiliate. I now believe it ws because they were in the process of refusing all clients who do not have their own website, as has been announced since.
One day, I may set up my own domain name, but until then I will just stick with the affiliates who welcomed me, and maybe afterwards too. Who knows?
eBay has been much better for me since they changed their payment model. But as the EPN forum discussions reveal, nobody seems to be able to work out how Quality Click Pricing works. I have several consecutive days when I earn nothing at all even though reports show successful bids. It's all a bit of a mystery!
Same for me. I do really well with Ebay for a few weeks until the QCP goes to zero and then I don't earn until it kicks back in again a few days or weeks later. However, I'm still doing much better now with Ebay than before they introduced QCP.
