Suggest a new feature:
The ability to showcase eBay daily deals within the eBay capsules.
Due to the nature of the majority of my hubs the eBay capsules are something like little curiosity shops, this worked fine prior to the new 'quality price click whatever-it's-called', as I was just fishing for cookies and accrues, but under the new system my EPC is very low, as people tend to browse the items I list, but not buy them.
The eBay daily deals are heavily discounted items that apparently convert 5 times higher than most regular listings, and perhaps might convert better on general non product-specific hubs, raising the EPC.
I realize that with few hubbers getting accepted into the EPN these days this will probably be at the bottom of your list of things to action, but it would be fun to play around with, and see what sort of results it could produce.
Just a thought.
I saw this in the newsletter, it may be interesting.
I'd be more interested in adding a 'Buy It Now' feature to the ebay capsule.
And a means to eliminating auctions that don't have pictures. It just looks bad on a hub.
Agreed, there seem to be a lot more of these lately, and it does make a hub look really bad, especially if you're using eBay widgets in place of pictures.
Agreed. Also adding the ability to choose subcategories to dig deeper towards what you want.

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...

Ever since eBay introduced QCP, most affiliates are finding it far more profitable to promote "Buy It Now" items only. Go to any forum of eBay affiliates and you'll see that's the case.So it's highly frustrating that we don't have the option to "display Buy It Now items...

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...

I've had yet another eBay capsule snipped from a piece I published two days ago. This article is on dogwood trees, and the eBay product was about dogwood trees/seeds and planting of this tree species -- which is something directly related to the hub itself. So, now I think it is...

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
