Since eBay has stopped giving revenue for the last few months, I have stopped adding this capsule on my hubs. Earlier they had paid a few cents every day and now nothing at all coming from them. Is my action of avoiding eBay capsule right or should I start putting this capsule on my hubs as had been the practice till a couple of weeks ago? Please advise.
Ebay changed their program back at the beginning of October I believe it was. Since then, in my opinion, they are not worth it. If you have the Amazon option available, I'd go with that. eBay could be worth it perhaps on a few select hubs, but Amazon is better.
Sunil. my experience is almost the same as that of yours. I have been trying Amazon but no success so far. A few pennies were added at times due to visits to eBay capsules, it is no more there. I feel there are limited chances with both.
Has EBay stopped giving revenue? Really?? I'll just keep my capsules, thank you ... Every penny counts in my book Hopefully, things with the EBay program will turn around once again, and then that way, I won't have to worry about readding all those damnable capsules ...
EBay and Amazon both now pay the same: for sales only.
So really, either one is as good an option as the other. I feel what works is to use the capsule/service that truly offers the most relevant products for your Hub and topic.
It's unusual for me to disagree with you, Relache, but I do in this case. On Amazon, you get paid for sales - on eBay, you get paid for some sales.
There is one big difference between eBay and Amazon: eBay has auctions. You get paid for a sale on eBay ONLY if the buyer places a bid within the first 24 hours. If they don't place a bid within that time, even if they ultimately buy the product, you get nothing.
On my websites, I have eBay set to "Buy It Now" items only - which makes it identical to Amazon. I can't do that on HubPages. There is a dramatic difference between them in terms of earnings since the change.

I have had a hub on this site for several years that only contained TWO eBay capsules. Today, they were "snipped." What is the point of partnering with eBay if HP is going to interfere with that? Now, I understand that too many "spammy elements" as they call...

We just released a small update to the site. Among a slew of bug fixes and small updates, there are two notable changes.The first is that you can follow the comments on a hub, and receive email notifications when new comments are made. Just click the follow button near the top of the...

After the Ebay changes that occured about 2 months or so ago, am not earning from it even a single cent. Have you been affected by the Ebay changes? What next for those who cannot earn with Ebay and Amazon?

Authoring Hubs is about sharing and spreading ideas. Most of what we do is word-based, and a capsule to show off related Zazzle stuff would be an eye-catching way to allow readers interested in those ideas to buy products which celebrate them, such as relevant designs, graphics, statements,...

I'm trying to sign up for the earnings programs and can't because I don't have a Google AdSense account. I applied for one a few days ago but was rejected due to "insufficient content". (My account has 106 hubs, some of which do look sparse after the import.)While I'm...

Are you using the eBay capsule?I can't get more than one eBay auction to show on one of my pages -- only one auction per eBay capsule.Squidoo allowed us to feature up to 5 eBay auctions per module -- is there a setting in HubPages that I'm missing?Thanks!Coe
