    Are we allowed to use our own Ebay affiliate links in Hubs? Also, for those of you who are Ebay affiliates (not through the HP Ad Program), is it worth it earnings-wise? From what I gathered reading the Ebay commission structure, they now pay per click instead of per sale?

      Manually placing affiliate links can be spammy.

      I would suggest reviewing the Learning Center article about the eBay program.

        I understand the spammy aspect of affiliate links, and I'm already a part of the  HP eBay Ad Program. I was asking about our own eBay Partner Network accounts, and I'm not a huge fan of placing a ton of product links, just a text link here and there if it's relevant.

      eBay did change their program to a click-based system, but they've changed it back - so now it's per sale again. 

      Yes you can use eBay text links in your Hubs provided you limit it to two per Hub.
