Okay so the ebay thing works how?

    I have ebay capsules on a few hubs and amazon capsules on most..

    So in my ebay earnings section it says I sold a thing.

    The "revenue" from the thing is x.

    In my earnings report for eBay it has three columns:


    Now, do I get the earnings from the "thing" I sold? Or do I just get the earning from the clicks (the earnings section in my report.) Or do I get both?

    I am ultra confused.

    Also, given my reports section, if my earnings there are higher than I'm seeing on Amazon (and I have a much larger number of Amazon hubs), should I try and add more eBay capsules and less Amazon capsules?

      Hello Melbel:

      Like amazon it takes some time to earn anything from your ebay ads. I recently activated the program and have earned very little to date. Like everything it takes time. But for me, it appears that the earnings are growing faster than on Amazon. I guess it is basically different for each individual and possibly what products that you want to show within your displays.  Also under your accounts tab, click under the earnings tab, than click on Ebay summary, it will give you a summary of how much you earned to date, in terms of cents.  If you earned nothing than it will display $0.00. Hope this helps you out.

      On your eBay Sales pages, near the top of the report, is a green button that reads "help."  Click that and read the long section that unfolds.

      To see what you really earned, you will need to go to the earnings report and see what is reported there.

    Yeah, I've got earnings and stuff in my columns, but do I earn the "earnings" from the section in the columns or do I earn the "earnings" from the item I sold? Or both?

    Or are the "earnings" from the section with the columns somehow based off of the item I sold? If so, how is it divided up. Let's say I earn 23 cents on one day and 27 cents another. Where is this money coming from? Just clicks? Or is the item I sold somehow divied up over a number of days?

    I'm just curious to figure out how I can take these reports (report of items sold, and the clicks report) so that I can see what I'm taking home ($$$.)

      Hi Melbel:

      I am not sure the exact answer that you're seaching for, as I am fairly new to the whole Ebay thing myself. However the learning section of hubpages has some good topics in relation to Ebay. Possibly you can find an answer or two in this one here http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/1-4- … r-network. If this doesn't help you than I know someone here on hubpages, that will definitely know the answer for sure. I will send a link copy of this forum over to him. Thanks for hanging in there with me Melbel.

      Melbel, I received an email from Jlbowden asking me to check out your question in case I could answer. But I see that relache just pointed you in the right direction, so no need to duplicate what you will read when you follow her lead. That help button explains it fully and also includes a link for further info in the FAQ section.

      By the way, Jlbowden is one of the members in our local HubMeet. It's been a great venue for sharing knowledge about HubPages here in NY. I know you were running one too in Chicago. How has your group been coming alone?

    I would love to see some earnings. But out of over 80 hubs, it is not going well at all. I'm wondering if either of them are worth the time..

    Thank you, Relache, that was really helpful. I'd checked the "help" section on the main site (up in the right corner) but couldn't find the answer there.

    It was right in the little help button in my account as you'd said, everything I needed. Thanks! smile

    @Glenn Stok
    I live in kind of an odd area where there don't seem to be a lot of hubbers. It seems like most hubbers are way south of me like in Indianapolis or all the way in Chicago. I wouldn't mind going to a hubmeet in Chicago if it were a decent sized one, but currently there doesn't seem to be much interest.

    Maybe HubPages will come to Chicago for a HubCamp and then all these local hubbers would come right out of the woodwork.

    Melbel, It's too bad that you don't have any Hubbers near you. Yesterday we just had our 7th HubMeet and it was another meeting where we shared a lot of information that helped everyone. I am having trouble getting more interest. I know there are some other Hubbers on Long Island as I can see from their profiles. But I don't want to send them direct messages as it may be considered spamming. So I just keep hoping they will notice it someday as it is mentioned in several places.
