ISSUE on eBay's end: unaudited http://bit.ly/GHUvRg

    I am aware that as of 1st October eBay was changing a few things so a few members were saying earnings may drop. My eBay reports on earning for the first three days in October are crazy though.

    I don't earn a huge amount of eBay at the moment but for the 1st of the month I earned 5x what I normally earn getting almost $1 per click! The day after I earned -$0.08, for both these days I had no impressions. Then the third day I had what I would judge to be about the right amount of impressions and clicks but a earning total 15x what I would expect!

    What is going on with the eBay earnings and is anyone else seeing these crazy figures?

      Yes, Oct 1st was an insane amount but it's still pending so I am not hopeful I get to keep it all yet.  Nothing on Oct 2nd and the other days haven't updated yet, but it is a strange thing indeed. I'm going to be cautiously optimistic with it until we see what happens.

      There are some problems with the data on the eBay side for October 1st and 2nd.  October 3rd looks better, but I'm not certain yet that it's right either.  Anyway, we are patiently waiting for eBay to correct the data, which they've committed to do by October 14th.

      As Paul Deeds mentioned, this is a known issue and there is an existing forum thread here.

      Just wanted to post the latest update.
      eBay has announced that they have no plans to fix the issue on their end at this time.
      Be aware that the earnings, however, are accurate.

    I have earnt nothing from ebay in the past week. In the past, I would normally earn a small amount each day (about 6 cents on average). Any information on what has changed? Or could this relate to the changes made to ebay capsules on hubpages?

      They've switched from a model where they smoothed the bumps and paid you per click, to one where you get paid more sporadically for actual sales (more like Amazon).  There are some details here:

      The very early data (just 1 day really) across HubPages makes it look like the total earnings will be greater, but we can't really be sure until they fix the reporting issues and we see a week or two of data.

        Ah, that's a shame. I get quite a few clicks but almost no sales (or none). The problem is I don't write sales hubs, so clickers won't be there to buy. Would it be worth me removing all of my ebay capsules?... because I don't think I'll lose earnings by doing that now. Doing that might improve the page quality, thus increasing traffic and adsense earnings.

          To be clear, the per click payments under quality click pricing were ultimately tied to sales as well.  They just averaged your sales over a long period and paid it out a little bit each day.

          That said, if you aren't earning anything from an eBay or Amazon capsule and they aren't integral to the Hub, then yes, I'd remove them.  There is more advice on product capsules in the Learning Center.

            Ah thanks. I'll give them a bit longer then.

      Same with me, Thomas Swan, it all just stopped. Hopefully, as pauldeeds said, we will see in a week when things straighten out with reporting.

    All my Ebay earnings show a big fat zero since October 1st, which is very unusual. Odd thing is that the earnings on many days are not pending, so does this mean that big fat zero is for good?
