Which is the better affiliated program. I used ebay and that is where the bulk of my money is currently being made. Although they are all paid per click, it do get quite a bit of click.
As for amazon, I get a couple of view but no buy. Which is really better in the long run?
Personally I prefer Amazon, because they accepted me into their program without having my own website, and I have had quite a bit of success with them.
Ebay never accepted nor rejected me when I applied to have my own account with them, after getting my own sites up and running.
Meanwhile, I signed up to Hubads ebay account which brings me a few cents now and then, but nowhere as good as Amazon.
Still, sign up to both if you can.
I use both and have little results on eBay. Amazon has done better for me. I have been an Amazon Associate for quite sometime and carry some of their items on my website as well. Also, I am an Amazon Seller, and do good with that. On eBay, I list and I buy, and I do well in that regard as well.
Just 2 sales on amazon till now but the amount I made is 10 times I made with ebay!
I have published my first hubs a few days ago and I have earned a few $ from the HP ads, nothing from amazon, ebay or adsense. How much do you earn from amazon/ebay/adsense comparing with HP ads? I don't mean exact amount, but some numbers like x% from amazon, x% from ebay...
EBay is a disappointment for me. I've sold many more items on Amazon and am thinking about ditching the EBay capsules. I don't care for the way we have to depend on HP for the sales info either.
I am not allowed an Amazon account because I live in Illinois. I have an Ebay account and have had some sales but have yet to be paid. The sales were in Jan and Feb. How does payment for sales work with Ebay?
Both are good. For whatever reason, eBay seems to do really well for me on my own sites but not at all on hosted content sites (HubPages, Squidoo, etc). Amazon is just the opposite - good on hosted sites, very poorly on my own sites.
@pedrn44... not sure how eBay works on HubPages but on your own sites, you get paid per click. A higher percentage of clicks that result in bids or sales raises the amount you get per click. They used to pay a percentage of each purchase but that changed a couple years ago. I've been making more since they went to pay per click so I'm happy with the change:)
How strange, I have the same experience!
eBay should be better in theory, because they have a 30-day cookie, whereas with Amazon, if someone doesn't buy straight away, you don't get paid.
When I go to my Ebay earnings on HP it shows the sales and says you get 60% of the revenue. There is a waiting period for returns, etc.. They weren't interested in my own website . Now that was before we got our Ebay accounts through HP so perhaps I should submit my site again.
It really depends on your hub subjects.I do better with Amazon myself.

Is it okay to have Ebay earnings to be $0.00 for five consecutive days? I had noticed earlier that it was nil for may be two days at a stretch but definitely not for 5 days in a row. Kindly, throw some light on this matter because I am a bit worried. Thanks in Advance!

Hi SeenOnTV, wanted to know if you have not added your ebay account here and still making money?I read the FAQ and it says, revenue does not start unless signed up for adsense and amazon and ebay. So was I worried about ebay account.

There seems to be something wrong with my eBay accounts. My old account which is no longer connected to Hubpages shows 38 Bids and 32 Wins/Bids with only 19 clicks for the month - when I try and download the transactions for the month, there are none listed.When I look at my eBay clicks through...

I see from time to time people discussing which hubs have generated eBay sales, but I've never been able to find an actual itemization of any sort in my eBay account of what someone bought. Is there somewhere that tells you that info in the eBay account page and I'm just missing it?

Has anyone been denied and ebay account? I was, I was wondering if I filled out the application wrong. I am wondering what url and business descriptions you used because I am going to try again. thanks, sandy

On my eBay websites, I can choose to list only items that are listed as "buy it now" (BIN). There's a bit of evidence to suggest that BIN items are more profitable than auction items for affiliates, especially with the new pricing model. Any chance we might be able to get that...
