    I recieved theis email from Ebay today, how will affect hubpages?

    We are excited to announce eBay’s new global affiliate platform: the eBay Partner Network.

    The new platform will go live on April 1st, 2008 PST, at which point eBay will no longer be running its affiliate program through Commission Junction.  Beginning April 1st, affiliates should register with eBay Partner Network and migrate their links from CJ to the new platform.

    While CJ and ValueClick have been valuable partners to eBay throughout the years, we’ve decided to give our affiliate community a customized experience for eBay affiliates.

    All the great tools and benefits of working with the eBay program will remain the same – access to the Editor Kit and affiliate API, the flexible destination tool, the great payout structure.  In addition, the eBay partner network will provide several new features:
    •       Easy global registration to multiple countries simultaneously
    •       New, targeted banners and rich media creatives
    •       New landing page optimization and geo-targeting capabilities
    •       More detailed reporting capabilities for eBay’s programs

    The eBay Partner Network and Commission Junction will run in parallel for one month through this process, so please plan to complete your migration by May 1st, 2008.

    You can receive an additional 5% bonus for all traffic tracked through eBay Partner Network in April 2008 (bonus applicable to traffic sent to Half.com and US, UK, Australia, Canada, Italy, India and Spain eBay sites).  The sooner you migrate, the more you’ll earn!  Just:
    •       Register with eBay Partner Network on April 1, 2008
    •       Confirm your registration, and obtain your new identifiers
    •       Update your links with your new identifiers.
    •       Reminder: Please plan to complete migration by May 1, 2008.

    You will receive more information and step by step directions for the transition on April 1st.  A special help desk to answer your questions about migration will also be available starting April 1st.  You can find more details, including a list of programs that will be affected, at http://affiliates.ebay.com.

    Thanks for being a valued partner.  We’re excited for a successful transition, and the opportunity to grow your business through even more innovations, information and communication moving forward!

    I'd never launch a new service or a change on April 1st (April Fools). It's just asking for confusion for those that find out on the day.
