eBay Affiliate Program Review

home :: ebay affiliate program review

The eBay affiliate program is one of the biggest and most popular programs online. eBay will pay you between $12 and $30 per active registration you send them. You get a higher dollar amount per active registration based on your monthly volume, which is not unusual with a lot of programs. To get to $30 per registration, you have to send over 10,000 or more registrations each month. (Wow!)

Affiliates also earn between 10 cents and 25 cents for qualified bids and buy it nows. This is in addition to the revenue generated from the active registrations that you send over.

eBay boasts that they have quite a few affiliates making over $100,000 a month with their program, and it's easy to see why when you do a search for just about anything nostalgic on Google. Google Adwords are rife with ads for eBay, although Google's new policy regarding ads with the same URL only displaying one ad per URL is going to slow down quite a bit of eBay's business.

One of the most attractive things to me about the eBay affiliate program is that there is literally something at eBay for everyone. So finding obscure keyword phrases that don't have a lot of competition becomes profitable almost no matter how obscure the keyword is. You could easily put together a 200 page website devoted to cult classic tv shows, get #1 listings for phrases like "Knight Rider" and "The Six Million Dollar Man", run eBay affiliate ads, and clean up. And that's only one example.

eBay has a page for their affiliates where they list the most popular searches in about a dozen different categories: dvd's, cd's, digital cameras, video games, cell phones, video game systems, audiobooks, PDA's, and camcorders. Any one of those categories could be the jumping off point for a 50 to 200 page website, and eBay could be a very profitable partner for you.
