After a year of running a country-specific, geo-targeted program for India, eBay has decided it's not worthwhile and they are shutting it down.
They don't have anything up on their blog yet, so be sure to check your email if you've been using this sub-program.
They are just shutting down the Indian part of the eBay partener network.
If you use eBay partner network to prote ebay.com however you should be unaffected by this, even if you live in India
If you are using geo-targeted campaigns as part of your webpages, those will no longer work come April 1st and should be updated to incorporate material and point to eBay.com.
Geo targetting will still work in other countries, but if a geotargetting ad picks up an indian visitor it will forward them to ebay.com not ebay.in. If say a UK visitor visits a site with geotargetting it will still send them to ebay.co.uk, canadian user to the canadian ebay and so on.
So if Indian visitors are not guided to eBay.in, does this mean they will close the website?
I don't know if Hubpages will shut down the website ebay.in, all they have told us so far is that the affiliate program for ebay.in will no longer work.
If it makes you feel any better though all your hubages adverts are for Ebay.com, so it should not affect earnings from here
Darkside and thisisoli,
Thank you for the explanation. I guess I understand the issue now.
