Toward the end of 2017, we released Smart Placements as part of our new Smart Suite. We wanted to cover one of the foundational pieces of this tool - Auto-Optimization - and what sets it apart. In this handy guide, you’ll learn how it can positively impact your business and why you should start using it immediately.
In early January, professionals from over 70 countries converged in Las Vegas to learn the latest industry updates, make new connections, strengthen partnerships, and discover new practices and technology for their businesses at the 15th annual Affiliate Summit West (ASW).
As our valued partner, it’s our mission to help you optimize your traffic and earnings with a variety of tools created specifically to give you deep, rich insights. Custom reports are one great way to check your performance, and topping the list of reports that can help you analyze your account at a detailed level is the Transaction Download Report (TDR). From click time stamps and campaign IDs, through to the specific items they are buying, the TDR gives you crucial insight into how effective your campaigns are, why your conversion rate is what it is, and what you can do to improve.
You may have heard the expression “niches are riches,” and providing that valuable, authoritative content for your audience is more important than ever before. The goal of most search engines is to deliver an optimized, accurate set of results which means they are becoming more aggressive about penalizing websites that provide little to no value, such as sites that are too ad dense (more than 30% of a page), have thin content and/or poor site structure.
Because creating a winning business plan is as much about mindset as it is about metrics, we turned to our friend Chris Brogan (New York Times bestselling author, affiliate marketer and long-time digital native) for his advice on how you can shift your marketing game and master your mindset to earn more with eBay.
As 2017 fades in your rearview, you’re probably already planning your business strategy for 2018. As the affiliate marketing industry is projected to be worth $6.8 billion in the U.S. alone by 2020, earning opportunities are abundant, as long as you stay on top of the best ways to meet your audience where they are (and with what they need).
2017 was a memorable year for all of us. From the launch our new “Fill Your Cart With Color” brand platform, to smart new tools that will take your business to the next level, shipping and pricing guarantees, optimization tips and much more, we’re committed to giving you everything you need to make the most of your partnership with eBay.
Thank you for visiting our 2015 Payment Calendar. Please see our 2018 EPN Payment Calendar for the schedule of upcoming payments.
Our goal is to pay publishers as early as we can while taking into account all of the internal requirements for a successful payment cycle. Beginning in 2013, in response to publisher feedback, we committed to paying publishers by the 22nd rather than the 25th of every month, whenever possible. Though we’ve done a fair job of adhering to this goal, recent publisher feedback has made it clear that we need to do a better job of communicating any exceptions. So, to confirm, ePN will continue to strive to pay partners on the 22nd of every month, with the following exceptions:
- If the 22nd occurs on a weekend or holiday, ePN will pay on the next business day.
- If the 22nd occurs on a Friday, ePN will possibly pay on the Thursday before but more likely on the Monday after.
- Our payment dates are timed to avoid PayPal software release dates. However, if PayPal changes their release dates during the year, it could change our payment dates. If this happens, we will try to let you know in advance.
- If an unforeseen issue delays payments, we will address the problem as quickly as we can, and strive to keep you informed along the way.
We know that our partners are business owners and need to know when they’re going to get paid. So to clarify the schedule and allow you to plan, here is our payments calendar for the remainder of 2015:
Calendar payment dates refer to the dates when eBay disburses funds to publisher accounts. Please note that, in the case of publishers paid via Direct Deposit, individual banks have their own processes that may involve additional days to settle funds deposited via direct deposit.
We hope this helps, and as always, we welcome your comments and suggestions. If you have questions regarding payments, please contact us or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
