Can anyone tell me if the eBay and Amazon programs are worth it?
How are you defining "worth it?"
Do you want opportunities to earn via retail sales off your Hubs? If so, then yes, they are worth it. If not, then don't bother.
Well, when I read the information, it says personal information will be transferred. I was curious as to what that entails and if it is safe. Thank you for your response.
You should read the program terms and decide for yourself. After all, those terms are a legal agreement and you'll be held to certain terms on your end too.
I use the eBay program if I use any but I tend not to bother. Well for me, as a very small hubber, I find little chance of someone ever clicking let alone buying.
I use eBay because the earnings are incorporated into the AdProgram. I'm sure that if I used amazon I would need to wait for that one cent a week to hit a large $40 before I can expect a payout. With eBay the payout would come with the AdProgram so I wouldn't need to rely solely on that to get to the payment minimum.
It depends if you write content which is likely to generate sales.
Basically, it says that is has to send some of my personal information, I am just hesitant about that. Is it something to be concerned about? Forgive me, I am still learning the ins and outs. I appreciate all the feedback.
Well, my personal experience. The only commission earning I get from Amazon is some one (only one in fact) buying this Revoltech Danboard from Amazon.
While for ebay, I only get couple of pennies from the sales.
I could only blame myself as I do not have a lot of hubs that could probably trigger buying.
I find that using Ebay and Amazon takes precious space away from the advertisers that actually pay. So I don't waste my time. Now if you are writing hubs on specific items like apple products of a toaster oven review, then by all means use ebay and amazon to sell those items on your page. You are way more likely to see a profit that way.

How can you make money with eBay and Amazon?I have seen some hubbers say that they make the majority of their money from Amazon and eBay? I am making 99% of my hubpages income from the AdProgram, I just don't see how people are able to turn those around.

I wanted to hear from some of the more experienced hubbers and see if the amazon and ebay affiliate programs make very much for them? I assume that they end up being very little of your overall earnings, but I wondered if they are worthwhile. Thanks!

What are the rules on the other affiliate programs besides eBay and Amazon?Is it acceptable to post affiliate links to other websites? What if you want to post a link to a relevant product or site, but it's not on Amazon or eBay?
