Have any of you noticed a drop in the past few months for eBay sales?
For some reason I still get clicks but no sales... I started noticing this a few months ago.
One month I got clicks almost every day but no sales and then *bloop* sales started showing up about mid month and the sales went up and down almost in unison with the clicks.. like they normally do.
But the past couple months it's not registering any sales while I'm still getting clicks almost every day.
Maybe it has to do with how eBay's system's set up? Because I still pull it GREAT commission every month from Amazon and Google..
Or maybe it has to do with HubPages taking their cut? Do they do a 60/40 split on eBay earnings too?
I never could get an account with ebay for some reason... hmmm
I've done a quick random check of my own stats and can see that my winning bid ratio has dropped for this month but remains fairly steady over the previous few months.
I went back to July '09 to check my Winning Bids / Click ratio to see whether there has been a dramatic drop off. Here are my results (these are for all Campaigns, not just Hubpages)
July 2009 = 1.55%
October 2009 = 1.60%
February 2010 = 2.03%
May 2010 = 1.73%
June 2010 = 2.14%
July 2010 = 1.27%
So my ratio of winning bids to No of Clicks is down this month but not significantly lower. I'd suggest it's just one of those fluctuations you get every now and then when your bidders aren't being successful.
Everything is very normal on my end. How is your EPC doing?
For the past two months it's been... wait for it..... 0!
If I go back to May my earnings were only 7 cents per click.. per the 100 clicks I got.
So far this month I have 36 clicks.. no sales.
Last month I had 87 clicks.. no sales.
I did assume that maybe the summer months are bad for online sales but for it to zero out seemed odd when I still make money from the other two.
My earnings have dropped a little but not significantly.
Baby booming months are from August to November though, followed by Christmas.
Amazon and ClickBank are very slow lately, I guess a lot of folk are on vacation.

I understand the clicking part of eBay earnings. But how do I know how much that I will be paid for the sales revenue from winning bids? I have read the relevant page of earnings, which doesn't really tell me clearly, although it does imply that I get 40% of ebay revenue? However...

Can you remember what it was like when you first started to write Hubs?Before you read this rambly post - please know that I am not a newbie trying to suck you dry for information without doing any of the work myself. What I'm interested in is how you got through the first few months? How did you...

What is considered a good or average conversion rate for Amazon products in general??
by Carolee Samuda 10 years ago
On the eBay account page there are some columns such as RPM, Views, Sales and Revenue.The numbers displayed in the sales column, do they mean that some one has bought something from ebay though my link or are they just clicks? I they are just clicks why not state clicks instead of sales?

Why am I seeing earnings from Ebay without any sales?I have added a very few amount of Ebay capsules in my hubs (as low as 3-4). Two days in a row I saw small amounts of earnings from Ebay, but not in Ebay sales reports. Is this occurring from impressions on Ebay capsules? Or clicks on capsules?
