I earned more in two days than I was able to earn from a month of writing. Don't give up on e-Bay - it is nearly Christmas and people will soon start buying presents.
Both Ebay and Amazon have worked well for me, howbeit sporadic, I have had some good payouts from both over the time I have been here.
Sales should pick up a bit now - hopefully - think I have been pretty lucky so far:)
Yes, don't forget about Amazon, too. I have made some good sales from them!
I never a single cent at ebay. I place the capsules in my hubs but i did earn 8 cents at amazon, a prayer book was sold
How do you make money doing that? You actually sell items? Am just curious is all.
You earn commission from placing e-Bay ads on your Hubs - they need to be relative to the subject of your hub - if you are writing about a kitchen appliance for instance - then you place an ad for that product on the hub. The same applies for Amazon ads.
I think I have done that with my blogs posted things from Ebay on the hub but I do not know how to tell if I am making money or not
You need to check your accounts page - earnings, amazon sales and e-bay sales - if you have made any sales you will see details of them there.
This is the first time that I've encountered this strategy. I'm still new here...and learning my way around. But this seems like a neat way to earn more for your Hubs. Thanks! I'll look into this possibility.
Thanks for the reminder! I have a few Christmas Hubs and I just added some new eBay products that are relative to the Hubs!
Too bad can't do e-bay here without Adsense account. Adsense turned me down for an account so I just have to rely on my own amazon account. Waiting to see how it goes here....
Nancia You have only been here for 2 months. Wait another month, add more hubs and apply again
YES! it was kurkqj, but I think she meant she was newb!
JAJAJA ok sorry sallybea , Its cool though that u respond like ...real time..AWESOME.
ok bye now
I have had zero luck with eBay or Zazzle. It took 3 years, but now I am seeing at least one sale a month with Amazon.
That is something positive. E-Bay seems to be pretty good at this time - shame to ignore all those potential customers! With a Buy It Now feature available to us now - things seems to be improving.
eBay has been useless for years because of the way the capsules were set up, and the way eBay paid commission. HubPages has now made the capsules Buy It Now only, which makes a big difference - I suggest you give a few capsules a try now.
I'm glad you're making some sales on Ebay. Maybe the bid now is really helping. I have hit or miss months with them.
I haven't really taken e-bay seriously. I have to start putting in links now. Thanks for posting this. There is hope.
You are welcome - bit like signing up for the lottery - if you don't buy a ticket, you will never win:)
Wonderful! I've never had a sale so far so I'm holding on to having one or two sometime soon.
Please teach me how you make sales I'm never able to do that.. I suck I guess..
I had a quick look at one of your Hubs - the one about wrinkles. I would align your Amazon and e-Bay ads to the right of your text and place a blue background behind the add Doing it this way - may make the ads look more attractive to people visiting your pages.
..please share your thoughts on how ebay works..thanks a lot!

I've just been tooling along getting no nibbles from my Amazon capsules. I then read a post a day or so ago where someone (ryankett maybe?) added lots more relevant tags to his hubs and his traffic shot up. So I figured I'd give it a go and messed with my tags.Maybe the timing was coincidental, but...

My Amazon sales are dead in the water. My Amazon Caps are discrete - I have added only when directly related to a product.I am not getting much traffic at the mo, so I guess this is an issue. I posted around 60 Hubs in Dec 2014, so it should be these have not been picked up by Google as organic...

Last month, I got 37 clicks with no sales from Amazon. Does anyone have any wisdom about how to increase the conversion rate from Amazon? I mean, they are obviously interested enough in something to click on it, but not enough to buy. I wonder if it's a lot it being January, too.
