I know the TOS preclude me from discussing the details but my earnings have been in the tank - eBay earnings have been zero with the new changes and then Voilà! one sale and a big payout! Hip, hip, HOORAY!
That's wonderful. Congratulations. That means there is still hope yet!
That's great. Maybe I should look into Ebay as well.
Congrats! keep earning more and more, I still remember my first Amazon sale.
Cool. This is inspiring. I hope to have my earnings soon too!
Excellent news! I haven't really delved into eBay - Adsense is working nicely, but of course, we could all use some extra income! I plan to add some in the future. Any small tips for us?
Yaaay! You hit the jackpot. Congratulations, GmaGoldie. This is why I keep a few eBay capsules, waiting to hit that lottery! I'm so happy for you.
Can someone please explain the possible payout that comes from an ebay link? Also, do you load the content yourself or is it automatically done and keyword driven?
With an e-bay link, the payout is only if someone clicks on the item from your page, bids on e-bay and wins the bid/item and purchases it. I dont recall the percentage offhand. I would need to look it up. In my opinion, amazon stands a better chance since it is a straight purchase and while the buyer sees other choices, the odds are in our favor more so.
To get the E-Bay link and item on your hub, look to the top left of your hubpage while in editing mode, click on it and it will be added to the bottom of your page. You may also go to the area of the page and a mini icon will come up for you to add a "capsule", click on it and choose the e-bay link since there are many options, ie photo, amazon, ebay, etc.
Once the ebay capsule is there, click on the way you wish to search for a related item, by title or by your choice key word. I find key word option works best for me. Once you have that in place click "search" and up comes an item ! If you want to keep it, simply select it and "ok" it. I dont recall specifics of this step so you will be able to discern it once you are this far! I hope this is helpful and I wish you the best! I will look for your post if you have any other questions. Take care!
Thank you! that makes sense now.
GmaGoldie, Sorry for the Hijack. Congratulations on the extra Ca$h!
you are welcome! Glad to have learned something I can share! lol I was once lost with this stuff lol you can find answers on learning pages but I often found it difficult to locate answers...so anytime just send a question to the forum or if you don't get an answer, ask hubpages or you are welcome to shoot me a message If I know the answer I will be glad to share!
Yes I wanna know the answer to ChicagoPhotos question too... It would be helpful to know.
Hi angelicthoughts...I posted an answer to ChicagoPhoto's question ....if you haven't seen it yet Barbat79 is my id hope it helps
If I hadn't already congratulated you Congrats!!!!!! Way to go...anything you can share about how you achieved this?
Congratulations! As for ebay, I've decided to delete this capsule. I've made nothing from them in over 3 years.
I had quite a few sales on eBay in the run up to Christmas from just one Hub. I am no expert but when I choose a product to display I find one that is very popular on eBay. You can see how many items from that listing have been sold, if that number is in the hundreds or thousands there is a good chance you will make a sale. For instance, your Hub 'Things to Consider when Buying Flax Seeds' only has one eBay item which is a used grinder in auction format, I found another really nice looking grinder with the seach term 'flax seed grinder' from a top rated seller with over 100 sold from that one listing.
Well, now you've got me re-thinking the ebay capsule. There's always a chance I'm not using it to its full advantage:) Thank you!
Yes it is not as simple as the Amazon capsule!
You have to find the product (make sure it is a Buy It Now with lots sold), then enter the ebay sellers ID and the entire title of the product in the search box and the product you want should show up.
I should look into eBay again; maybe there is hope yet!
Congratulations. It is inspiring to read this, it keeps us going.
Thank you all so much! And thank all the Hubbers who have graciously and patiently trained me. I love HubPages for many reasons and I have stayed through all the changes in the Panda's and beyond. It is rewarding to see the dollar signs appear.
Blessings to the HubPages team and all our fellow Hubbers!
I am so glad for you and find your experience and all the input from you and hubbers very uplifting!
I read that as "Ebay Earings" and was very confused for a moment. Congrats on the sale!

And today it's $16.68. How did that happen?I made payout recently, and I got the check last week. I was thinking I might make payout again this month, with a forty-one dollar total. But now it's clear I won't. How did my earnings since last payout get so drastically reduced overnight?

Hello there fellow Hubbers!I am just so happy that I decided to share my joy with you! I recently received my first payment from Hubpages (after 9 months of trying to reach the $50 threshold). I know it sounds a bit lame since it took me that long just to get that much. But I already felt really...

I am writing articles for this website since past 3 months. At present, I have 38 featured and published hubs. I have joined for Amazon and google Adsense program. Past two months I earned like very less amount, less than 1/2 dollar. If I continue writing and publishing at the rate of one article...

Just want to share my happiness when I received today my first payout in the HP ad program. My Google Adsense earnings lag way far behind HP ad program. I don't expect to get my earnings in adsense at all. I'm motivated to write more hubs if only I have more time to do so. Thanks Hubpages.

I was just looking over my online earnings figures this evening and discovered that in April I earned $140 on hubpages. Wow! These earnings include 3 eBay signups. I like where this is going....
