E Bay

    I've almost been on hubpages a year.  At one point, I could almost swear that I read that hubpages wasn't doing e-bay anymore, so I quit thinking about them.

    . .. .but is that true? 

    If we are still doing e-bay, then I think it would be pretty productive for me to join as an affiliate, as I sometimes write about high priced guitars, and things of that nature. . .that are surely for sell on e-bay.

    Any and all feedback is appreciated.

      I could be wrong, but I think I read that ebay wasn't accepting Hubpages anymore? Like I said, I could be wrong....

    I think eBay is accepting IF you also have your own website.  So in truth - you both are correct.  It is a major change from where they started.  Sadly I came on board after all the obstacles and while I have a website it is basically dormant - another thing on my list.  But first I must write.

    Great question...

    There are several forum threads recently about eBay.  From what I understand even those hubbers with a stand-alone web site are being told to get the eBay ads off of hubs.  I believe several people have decided to do away with eBay altogether.

    And yes, you have not been able to become an eBay affiliate for some time now unless you have your own site.

      The thread I read, showed that ebay retracted the scary notifications to ebay partner network members that were already accepted into the program. They can continue to use ebay on hubs.

      Any new information about using HP to apply for an ePn account is still pending.

      It is quite easy to get accepted into ePn, if you build a simple website and apply via it.

    According to statements posted by HubPages founder Paul Edmondson within the last day, everyone  should hold on and wait for current negotiations between HubPages and eBay to be completed.

      THANKS! I missed that thread too. I read the other ones about that, I put in an application a couple of days ago just saying hubpages, so we'll see.

        Thanks EVERYONE!  I'll wait for further news, or just wait a month or two, and post this sort of question again.
