eBay Affiliate Program Commissions Doubled

Discussion in 'Commission Junction' started by digitalpoint, Jun 30, 2004.

    For those of you participating in the eBay affiliate program, you will be glad to hear eBay is raising commission payouts (by a lot too).
    SEMrush
    New User Active Registrations:

    Old:
    1 - 249 = $5 each
    250 - 499 = $8 each
    500 - 999 = $10 each
    1,000 - 1,999 = $13 each
    2,000 - 4,999 = $14 each
    5,000 - 9,999 = $15 each
    10,000+ = $16 each

    New:
    1 - 249 = $10 each
    250 - 499 = $13 each
    500 - 999 = $16 each
    1,000 - 1,999 = $17 each
    2,000 - 4,999 = $18 each
    5,000 - 9,999 = $19 each
    10,000+ = $20 each



    Bids/Buy Now:

    Old:
    1 - 1,499 = $0.05 each
    1,500 - 4,999 = $0.07 each
    5,000 - 19,999 = $0.08 each
    20,000 - 49,999 = $0.10 each
    50,000 - 199,999 = $0.11 each
    200,000 - 499,999 = $0.12 each
    500,000 - 749,999 = $0.13 each
    750,000+ = $0.15 each

    New:
    1 - 999 = $0.10 each
    1,000 - 4,999 = $0.12 each
    5,000 - 19,999 = $0.15 each
    20,000 - 49,999 = $0.18 each
    50,000 - 199,999 = $0.20 each
    200,000 - 499,999 = $0.23 each
    500,000 - 749,999 = $0.24 each
    750,000+ = $0.25 each


    I would imagine that should push the top eBay affiliate (which already makes $1.4M/month) above the $2M/month range. Also it basically doubles the commission for people on the lower tiers.

    he didn't mean spamming ebay. he meant setting up "spam" sites on search engines to get people signed up.

    .. I think. :)

    Signup for the eBay affiliate program, and refer people who want to use eBay to them.

    Does ebay also give residual income from people who register from you?
    I wonder if that's how those people are making $1.4 Mil plus a month. They have many people who signed up under them.

    They pay for bids (if they click through you).

    I don't think eBay offers residual income. That's the amazing part. Even for bids. For an affiliate to receive a commission, someone has to click through from their Web site each time they submit a bid. They don't store cookies or anything that can credit you for a bid later. I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure this is how their program runs.

    If you offer a good service, then the user will always click through you.

    InformationWeek just came out with an article about Amazon and Ebay. Amazon plans on opening up its web services even more. Keep an eye on my <shameless self promotion> Amazon Data Stream.

    This is great news. While ebay is not a huge part of my income stream, every little bit counts!

    I don't really understand why eBay keeps raising their affiliate program payout, but they are doing it again, so it's fine by me (especially since I rank #1 for ebay registration because of a little experiment I did). :)

    New User Active Registrations:

    Old (before the summer):
    1 - 249 = $5 each
    250 - 499 = $8 each
    500 - 999 = $10 each
    1,000 - 1,999 = $13 each
    2,000 - 4,999 = $14 each
    5,000 - 9,999 = $15 each
    10,000+ = $16 each

    Current (until October 31):
    1 - 249 = $10 each
    250 - 499 = $13 each
    500 - 999 = $16 each
    1,000 - 1,999 = $17 each
    2,000 - 4,999 = $18 each
    5,000 - 9,999 = $19 each
    10,000+ = $20 each

    Starting November 1:
    1 - 249 = $12 each
    250 - 499 = $16 each
    500 - 999 = $20 each
    1,000 - 1,999 = $24 each
    2,000 - 4,999 = $26 each
    5,000 - 9,999 = $28 each
    10,000+ = $30 each
