When was the last time you earned anything from placing an e-Bay Ad?
I sometimes wonder why I bother placing e-Bay ads on my Hubs.. In the two years I have been writing here, I have never received one dime, Is it as likely as my landing on the moon?
I sold on Ebay for awhile to fund a trip to Las Vegas! I sold used childrens clothing and designer purses that I would purchase from thrift stores, and sold them for an amazing profit! This was before the buy-it-now came into play. It was fun, but a lot of work!
I've never earned anything from having an e-bay ad on any of my hubs. People have gone to view the items, but I guess they never purchased them or they lost their bid. I've had much better luck with amazon, but even that is still only around $15 or so for total profit. Granted that is only for a couple of months, but still. I'm not sure if its worth the extra work to put the e-bay ads on my hubs. If that helps at all.
I don't think she's talking about personally selling your own products on ebay, but placing ads for ebay products within your hubs, is that correct, sallybea?
Assuming I understand you, then no, I've never sold any ebay products here or on the other writing site I'm on.
I've actually had about one sale a month over the past 4 or 5 months. One of them was a large purchase, so I leave the capsules on there just encase. Can't hurt to have a few.
earned? hah..i am still trying to get 10 views on my hubs
A few months ago I would've answered - OK nothing special. Few dribbling in making it worth keeping.
Now, zip, zilc, nudda - even went and changed the items for sale and placement on my hubs.
I believe it's due to the products being offered as auction and not a buy it now product. Who wants to bid on an item when they can buy it right there, on the same site immediately??
Now reading that over, maybe I need to consider what people do bid on when going to ebay as apposed to buy it now, and try them.
If that fails - see ya ebay!
Never. That said, I am very happy with my results from Amazon. Of course the placement will affect results however after doing both over the years, I am highly partial to Amazon and rarely go to eBay unless it's the only relate-able ad.
Well, I don't think it is quite that bad as your landing on the moon, but maybe as unlikely as being hit with space debris. HAHA
I sold something from aneBay ad in October 2013. That said, clicks on those ads are pretty rare, I think. But as I say, "Any click is a good click."
john000 - yup any click is a good click but it was better when we were actually paid for clicks on e-Bay. I wish someone would take a good look at the earning potential for writers as most of us really care about this site. Thanks for your comment.
You're right. It seems like the minute an avenue for revenue opens up, somebody gets the great idea of taking it away. Maybe something else will open up for us to try to monetize.
Just recently I have been making a bit of spare cash through the ebay adverts, in the last year it adds up to about $200 ish on Hubpages. The cash comes in lumps irregularly as the things that are selling seem to be relatively high value items.
Amazon on the other hand has done nothing in several months, perhaps because of the ebay ads. It totals about $30 for the same period
I used to make a little on Amazon Capsules (a few dollars), but our State Legislature is so shady that they feared none of us would honestly claim our income, and since Amazon wouldn't withhold taxes, they will no longer do business with Arkansas residents.
Slowly I have been converting all my Amazon caps to e-Bay, but have never made a dime. I know with Amazon, the person had to buy on that click, or it didn't count. May be the same with e-bay. If they click on it to bid, but not buy, its gone...
My adsense earnings are a little less than what I earn on HP.
I gave up on eBay a long time ago, and have very few eBay capsules left. I can't remember ever earning from them.
On the other hand, Amazon is responsible for more than half of my total monthly earnings in the past several months-- mostly from one hub.
I got rid of mine and then when I read that some people were quite successful with e-bay ads I added a few capsules to see what would happen. I get lots of impressions but have never sold one item.
My feeling about eBay items is that they are often "one of a kind", You have an ad with an appropriate item, then it's sold and gone. I've never thought this was an advantage. Amazon usually has a stockpile of identical items.
I got $16 a few weeks back. Before that I got a max of maybe 5c a day lol!

Is the current situation set to remain as it is - impressions, clicks, no payment?

Hey all,I posted this query in an older thread of mine with no joy. In retrospect, I probably should have posted the question independently:

Some of my hubs, I do include Ebay capsules that are related to my hubs but I had not earn a single cent nor a single click nor any impression from Ebay. Do I need to key in anything in the Ebay capsules like the ID?...

We just released a small update to the site. Among a slew of bug fixes and small updates, there are two notable changes.The first is that you can follow the comments on a hub, and receive email notifications when...

While placing ads on hubs, such as Amazon and eBay, how many ads can we choose?I have seen many hubs having more than two ads, whereas when I choose I have options only upto 2, both for Amazon and eBay.
