    Hi Everyone

    Over the past six months, I've signed up as an Ebay affiliate at two different times. I never heard anything from them either time. Has anyone else here on Hubpages had that problem? If so, how did you resolve it?

    Thank you

      Yes many times without even a "Dear BP we are sorry to say but"......" I think that happens to a lot of people here. They are such a huge organisation you think they could employ a typist to at least reply with a few words, and give us some indication why we were refused. Then we could at least work on it and maybe get the thumbs up next time.

      I've been an eBay buyer/seller for years. I recently applied for an affiliate and finally heard back from them after two weeks. I was denied for about ten different reasons (I was supposed to figure out which one applied). The only reason out of that list that made any sense was that they were no longer accepting affiliates through a "sub-affiliate model"; like HubPages.

      I've since been taking the eBay links OUT of my hubs. To hell with them.

      Honestly, they've been making stupid business decisions for a while now. They also seem to be losing their charm (and revenue) as I am constantly getting "deals" for free postings etc. I have a sneaking suspicion that they are in trouble.

      If they are in trouble I'd hazard to guess it's constant changes to their affiliate policies that are partially to blame. This is what happens when you get so big the business gets away from you.

    I usually get a form letter response about a week later. It gives a list of reasons why you might have been rejected, but it doesn't say which one was the culprit.

    Thank you for applying to the eBay Partner Network. We regret to inform you that we cannot accept your application at this time.

    Like many other affiliate programs, eBay Partner Network has a thorough application vetting process to ensure a good fit between a potential affiliate and the goals of the network. There are a number of reasons why your eBay Partner Network application may have been declined. Some of these include:

        * You are not in compliance with the eBay Partner Network Agreement and/or Code of Conduct.
        * The stated website that you plan to promote us from is non-functioning or inaccessible
        * The quality of your stated website is not in line with our network standards
        * The information you submitted in your application (contact information and your description of how you plan to promote eBay Partner Network) is incomplete or unclear
        * Your business model or stated website does not appear to be one that would attract eBay buyers (the eBay Partner Network does not currently provide commissions for bringing eBay sellers or listings to the site)
        * Your business model involves re-directing traffic directly to eBay from display ad networks or paid search (no longer allowed per our Terms and Conditions)
        * Your business model involves a sub-affiliate model (no longer allowed per our Terms and Conditions)

    If you feel that your application deserves a re-review, please forward any additional information that you would like us to consider to our Customer Support Team. It is not necessary to submit an additional application with a different email address. Requests that contain no new information about your promotional methods will not be reconsidered.

    Thank you,

    The eBay Partner Network Team

    I'm glad I searched on this as I was wondering the same thing. For now, I'm removing ebay modules from all of my hubs as they will not approve me.

    Gosh, I am surprised that ebay doesn't include a link to the blog post referenced in the URL above. That blog post is more useful than what they send via email.

    Just got that exact same form letter. I think I'm going to leave it alone for a while.
