    My Law of Attraction money-making must be getting results because I have just had my first eBay payment. OK, it's not a lot but it's a start!

    Amount:€24.01 EUR

      Well done Bard. Nice to know eBay is good to some.
      It is a start and it will continue to be good for you from now on at eBay.

    Yes I got my first payment of just over £12 via PayPal.  I thought the payout threshold was £25 so I'm surprised I got it.  I earned virtually nothing until they just bought in the quality click pricing in October.

    Anyone else seeing a big improvement in EBay?  With pay per click the earnings profile looks more like AdSense with a fairly fixed payout every day.  So I'm adding more Ebay capsules to my Hubs!

      Big time improvement. Love the new program. There is no threshold for the November payment, so everyone who's made a sale should get a payout. That way they don't hold your money forever. I've added a lot of ebay capsules to my Amazon hubs as well. A 7-day cookie, beats a 1-session cookie everytime for me.

      Oh and way to go Bard of Ely. I'm a big believer in focused thinking. Don't know if it's the law of attraction or not. But I have big pictures hanging up on the fridge of everything I want. (take them down before company comes though.) It does keep me motivated. But I think there's some "magic" involved as well.

      ....hmm I've not received my direct deposit from ebay yet. Perhaps the holiday in the US has something to do with it.

    That is great news.  I will never forget our first payment from eBay , was about 50 bucks.

    Just beware that eBay has a funny way of treating people.

    Not sure if you read it but this is my forum post from a few days ago about what eBay did to my business partner and myself.

    But do enjoy your new found wealth
