Why am I restricted to USA eBay adverts on an E-Bay capsule
It would seem that I am unable to access e-Bay listings from my own country when it comes to placing ads on my own Hubs. Is this correct? Even if I search for myself using my Seller ID I do not come up! Does anyone know a way around this please?
You should just be able to click on the E-BAY capsule and put in your keyword and hit enter. Have you signed up for an E-BAY account?

Seller ID's are not the same as affiliate ID's, so even if you have an ebay account for buying and selling you'll still need to get an affiliate ID.

The negative impact of writers having removed most of their e-Bay Ads from HubPages must surely be having an impact on traffic to the whole site in general. Of course, I could be wrong about this!If this is the case though, then it means we also receive less traffic to our Hubs. I would...

We just deployed an update to the site.The biggest change is the addition of the quiz capsule, and widget. It's easier to just see how it works than to explain, but basically it allows you to create trivia quizzes, quizzes that rank you on a single scale, and quizzes that classify you based...

Greetings -More often than not, when I first open a hub, it breaks about three inches from the top and puts in some spurious adverts, like this: Dog FoodLooking for D...Find exactly ...search.ebay.com/D... My AccountMy Account...

Gave it up and removed my remaining eBay capsules. I guess my hubs just aren't suited for them. Might give it another shot if the Buy It Now option becomes available though.
