    Can anyone confirm that eBay is only paying out commissions in the same category as the click? I had not heard about this.

    well that wouldn't make any sense at all so I don't think you have to worry about it. I mean for example what about traffic sent to non category specific ebay pages such as the homepage or sales page of a specific ebay seller?

    Plus I can confirm to you anyways that I'm receiving sales that are also outside the niches I drive traffic for on ePN. But I don't know if this is an idea they are considering or not if it is..it would be really hurting affiliates while ebay still wins off of the new traffic which ends up using their service no matter the category. So I really doubt they would do that.

    I think this is untrue. Where did you get this information? I don't see any reporting of the click category number either.

    I added a comment to another thread here about BANS forum members questioning if there is actually a 7-day cookie set?

    Kerosene. Saw an interesting post at the affiliate forum with a guy that was using type=2 (auction id) and type=3 (search), and had poor results. He then switched it to type=4 and immediately saw bids and commissions. His theory was that both of these type tools are brand new.. and type=4 is a oldie but goodie... I can see that.

    I converted one of my old earners to type 4 now.. it had some type 4, but the majority (95%) were type 2. Do you have any apps only using type 2 or just type 4 to compare?

    This site had 124 sales for March at CJ making a nice $315 for the month. I switched it to ePN the first week of April.. now I see 4 winning bids $14. The clicks break down the same between networks. Re-al cool. I'll report back if something miraculous happens with the site since converting to type 4 this morning.

    What tools are you using to send traffic to eBay? EditorKit.. or if they're links.. what 'type' are you using?

    Thanks!

    hanji,

    All my domains are running Type 2. I'm going to switch ONE of my sites to type 4 right now and see what happens.
    I'm going to use "http://search.ebay.com/auction#" as the Custom URL, is that what you're doing?

    I was seeing about $10 a day, but have seen no revenue since starting to transition links over a few days ago. I'm using the link generator tool for a keyword search. It kicks out a URL with type=3. What are type=4 and type=2? Can they be substituted on a keyword search link?

    At Cj it seemed like Help was better, at eBay I feel a little isolated. There widgets seem a bit tricky and it is easy to create something without your campaign ID if you are not careful. I was surprised they would let me do that but they did...better for them.

    I really wish they would turn these into widgets for affiliates http://togo.ebay.com/create/

    Well, it looks like I'm going to just break the £20 mark this month with ePN. I really have no idea what's happened, I only use BANS, I'm getting hits and clicks but just nothing like before. Who knows, perhaps next month will be better... can't really get any worse...pity my adwords bill wipes that £20 out and some :p

    I made the switch on Friday. How long does it take for ebay to record comissions? I am using BANS.

    I have seen a major decrease in clicks recorded from CJ to the new EPN and no revenue. With CJ, I made daily revenue.
