See eBay Sales & Revenue across all of your Hubs

    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 weeks ago, by-Hub  information is available within each Hub, too.)


    The report is broken up into 2 sections:
    - Sales & revenue by Hub
    - Recent winning eBay bids

    Please note that these are not earnings figures, but rather sales, eBay's revenue, and winning bids total across your Hubs.

    This information is provided to help you optimize your Hubs, not give you an accurate read of how much you should expect to be paid via the eBay Program. For that, please visit:

      Excellent. Love it that we can now do "misleading" titles also.
      Well - if we are "family"

      If we are not - that is misleading and get deleted.


      wwwdisney is OK? lol

        This is garbage.

        This is akin to spitting in the face of the entire hub community that optimistically hub hopped and made voluntary and involuntary edits in hopes of helping the site respond to Panda.

    Lol  I saw that, figured I missed it the other day and kicked myself for not being bright enough to read.

    Now I see this thread, posted just a few minutes ago.

    Please pass my thanks to Fawntia - that's great.  That the figures are wrong doesn't bother me - I'm far more interested in what sold and from where.

    As far as I understand, those article titles contain misleading links that are supposedly forbidden.

    I assume these hubs have been flagged and will soon be unpublished and the hubber concerned banned.

      We moderate based on Hub title, not URL. If you see violations, flag them and our moderators will have a look.

      And since this is off-topic, no more discussion, please, except as it relates to the eBay Sales & Revenue report. smile

      This is going to be very useful, thanks!  I'm impressed that the feedback received from the forums was implemented in production so quickly.

      I agree with wilderness that the amounts are not near as important learning which hubs are generating revenue as well as which items people are interested in.

      Hi Jason, Can we see the number of clicks (click through to ebay) as well, on this report please?

      Best Regards

      Thanks for this but I am a bit confused - my report shows 6 eBay sales this month but I don't see any of that revenue on my earnings report. Now I know the ebay report says that this includes the HubPages 40% as well as my 60% but does this mean that ALL of my sales occurred on your 40% of the impressions?!

      1. Jason Menayan profile image60
        Jason Menayanposted 4 years ago in reply to this

        That's not what I see.

        In your eBay report for this month:
        (choose eBay Program, and This Month, from the drop-downs)

        I see clicks and revenue to you.

        On the eBay Sales Report:
        I see a different total earnings figure, but that's for the last 30 days (which extends into October)

        If you choose a 30-day slice (Oct 19 through Nov 17) for the first report, you'll see a revenue number that's actually about 77% of the total earnings. smile

          Azure11posted 4 years ago in reply to this

          Ok thanks Jason. I think where I am getting confused then is the difference between earnings from clicks and from sales. I see what you are saying about the 77% but all I can see in my report is a number of clicks and an EPC rate so I don't know which earnings are from clicks and which from sales. Or am I missing something obvious?!

            Jason Menayanposted 4 years ago in reply to this

            Are you looking at the revenue data in the first report I linked to, too?

            1. Azure11 profile image88
              Azure11posted 4 years ago in reply to this

              No on the first link when I select eBay and this month I only see click data not sales. This is what is confusing me but at the moment I'm on my phone so I'll take a look in the morning although it doesn't look any different from what I normally see.

        2. Azure11 profile image88
          Azure11posted 4 years ago in reply to this

          OK, so I am really not getting this so I will try and be more clear about what I am seeing. On the first link I see 4 columns - date, clicks, EPC and Earnings. So the earnings figure is equal to clicks x EPC so that implies to me that I am being paid for clicks. However, the EPC does differ for different days. So I can't see that I am getting any revenue from sales on this page - e.g. on Nov 16th I had 3 ebay sales but my earnings on that day are less than the value of 1 of those sales so I assume that those all got attributed to Hubpages.

          Likewise on the days that the other sales were registered according to the 2nd link (eBay revenue sales), my earnings on the page showing the clicks is less than the value of those sales on that particular day so I also assume that those sales were not attributed to me.

          let me know if you want me to send you screenshots or further exact info on this as I would really like to understand how it works.

          Thanks for your time on this.

            Sorry about the late reply. You are paid by click by eBay, but your earnings per click are adjusted depending on the quality of those clicks (how they translate into sales, how large the sales are, etc.). So, to determine what you're earning, you should look at the Earnings Reports, but to help optimize your Hubs' eBay Capsules, look at the second.

            Sorry there isn't an explicit connection between sales and revenue to you, but that isn't made explicit by eBay.

              Thanks Jason, that does clarify the fact that it is even more confusing than I thought lol!! I think I see what you are saying though.

      I am a bit confused with the Ebay earnings that occur through an ebay sale.  On the Ebay Sales Reports where is says for example:
                           30 days                     Ever
      Hub         RPM* Views Sales Revenue    Views  Sales    Revenue
                                                                                     "Doghouses"  $13.95 1,505 3     $21.00   12,151   3       $21.00

      Do you actually count the $21.00 as earnings?  Or do you receive a percentage of the $21.00?

      Sorry if it sounds like a stupid question, but I just do not understand it completely......

      Sales this quarter will rise to as much as $2.65 billion, the company said today in a statement. Excluding some costs, profit will be 45 cents to 46 cents a share. Analysts had projected revenue of $2.52 billion and earnings of 46 cents, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
