I just finished my 30dc involving sales hubs. I've seen SO much information about ebay not liking article sites, not paying for article sites and closing accounts just because people weren't sending enough traffic.
So to anyone who does use ebay. I've got about 35 'sales' hubs now. Should I apply? If not, should I wait till I have more? How many?
Any information to help in my decision greatly appreciated!
Unfortunately, although eBay is allowing us to continue to use our ePn accounts at HP, I haven't heard of a single successful application through HP this year.
You pretty much need to have your own site and it must be established with some existing traffic in order to be accepted.
at least this is what Ive read in the past year of seeing threads about "not getting accepted into ePn" across multiple sites and forums.
I got my ePn account with a single undeveloped domain and site with nothing on it but a picture of myself and a logo, lol, still not sure how that happened.
Ooops forgot to add that yes I have a couple of sites with decent domain ageing and some traffic, so I (think) I'd be accepted. Just looking for advice on whether I should even bother.
just thought i will mention they are a bit stricter, I tried the sunforged empty site application and it didnt work.
I think you should give it a go, they make you put a file in your domain file manager to check your stats
but honestly I think ebay policy is stupid, they are losing money if anything buy not accepting hubbers.
Yeah, it makes sense to give it a try. Some people make some good money on ebay using HP, and even more money outside of HP.
Yes definitely. I make more money on my own sites through eBay than on all my Hubs combined.
Obviously, just make sure you apply using your own domains.
WryLilt, I find placing Amazon and eBay side by side gives visitors a compraisson with two of the worlds biggest website brands. This is in my opinion a great way to sell products.
In my mind it's not about traffic, it's being able to convert sales. If you're seeing a steady increase in Amazon sales on your hubs and on your site and are consistently in the 6.5% to 7% tiers, then you're ready to spread your wings.
I think that you're right to be leerie of ebay and worrying if you don't convert, then you might get the boot.
Honestly, there are thousands of other affiliate programs. If I were you I add some of them to your other sites and learn how to write sales pitches for them.
I work with nearly a thousand merchants now across six platforms on almost a 100 websites. It's a lot of fun! HP and adsense are just a very small part of the pie.
I have applied to ePN a few times and keep getting denied. I know you can't cite HubPages as the primary source, but I have a website that gets about 1,100 to 1,300 visits per month. I would have thought that would have been enough.

I have tried to get Ebay to accept my partner application so that I can begin earning money with their products I have on my hub pages, they have denied my application twice. Any tips on getting it accepted with them would be great.

I've noticed that I keep seeing HOTDs that fit the niche sites yet weren't chosen for the niche sites because they still have HubPages URLs. Why not save some time in the selection process for the niche sites and mine all the recent HOTDs and all of the Editor's Choice hubs for use on the niche...

Many people have asked how the new sites are performing so far. The latest Newsletter provides a general overview, but I'd also like to invite Hubbers who have had Hubs moved to discuss your experiences here. Overall, the change has been very positive, but there's also variation from author to...

Curious: Do you have multiple accounts, because your profile shows 68 hubs. I took a lot of mine and moved them. I let what I have left sit til it goes idle then I take remove it. I have over 80 articles, new ones, that are not published here, but elsewhere. Earnings are less than 2 bucks a month....

Just curious about what other hubbers have experienced so far.For me, I currently have 162 featured hubs of which only 2 have been chosen for niches.That is just slightly over 1%.
