Build Your Authority With Better SEO

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.

eBay Partner Network Payment Calendar 2015

Payment_eBayPartnerNetwork_2.jpg

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: epn-cs-english@ebay.com.
