Fawntia has created a new interface that allows Hubbers using the eBay Program as part of the HubPages Earnings Program to view sales and revenue by Hub, and winning bids, on one screen. (As I posted almost 2 weeks ago, by-Hub information is available within each Hub, too.)
Thanks for this but I am a bit confused - my report shows 6 eBay sales this month but I don't see any of that revenue on my earnings report. Now I know the ebay report says that this includes the HubPages 40% as well as my 60% but does this mean that ALL of my sales occurred on your 40% of the impressions?!
Ok thanks Jason. I think where I am getting confused then is the difference between earnings from clicks and from sales. I see what you are saying about the 77% but all I can see in my report is a number of clicks and an EPC rate so I don't know which earnings are from clicks and which from sales. Or am I missing something obvious?!
No on the first link when I select eBay and this month I only see click data not sales. This is what is confusing me but at the moment I'm on my phone so I'll take a look in the morning although it doesn't look any different from what I normally see.
OK, so I am really not getting this so I will try and be more clear about what I am seeing. On the first link I see 4 columns - date, clicks, EPC and Earnings. So the earnings figure is equal to clicks x EPC so that implies to me that I am being paid for clicks. However, the EPC does differ for different days. So I can't see that I am getting any revenue from sales on this page - e.g. on Nov 16th I had 3 ebay sales but my earnings on that day are less than the value of 1 of those sales so I assume that those all got attributed to Hubpages.
Likewise on the days that the other sales were registered according to the 2nd link (eBay revenue sales), my earnings on the page showing the clicks is less than the value of those sales on that particular day so I also assume that those sales were not attributed to me.
let me know if you want me to send you screenshots or further exact info on this as I would really like to understand how it works.
Sorry about the late reply. You are paid by click by eBay, but your earnings per click are adjusted depending on the quality of those clicks (how they translate into sales, how large the sales are, etc.). So, to determine what you're earning, you should look at the Earnings Reports, but to help optimize your Hubs' eBay Capsules, look at the second.
Sorry there isn't an explicit connection between sales and revenue to you, but that isn't made explicit by eBay.
Sales this quarter will rise to as much as $2.65 billion, the company said today in a statement. Excluding some costs, profit will be 45 cents to 46 cents a share. Analysts had projected revenue of $2.52 billion and earnings of 46 cents, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
