eBay Partner Network and Widgetbox Collaborate on RSS Feed Widget

Hi Everyone, eBay Partner Network has worked with Widgetbox to give eBay affiliates the ability to create customized widgets from any eBay RSS feed. As of Wednesday, September 9th, at 2pm PST, new functionality right in the eBay Partner Network Tools tab will allow you to take an RSS feed that you have created and turn it into a widget you can customize using Widgetbox’s Blidget and Blidget Pro.

With one click access to the Blidget Editor from the eBay Partner Network's RSS Feed Generator, you can have a custom Blidget up and running in no time. You’ll be able to choose from different layouts, backgrounds, patterns, colors, and headers. For advanced customization, go Pro and take your widget to the next level! This new RSS widget functionality works for all eBay programs on eBay Partner Network in all countries.

What do you need to do? It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

1) Create your account: You’ll need to have accounts at both Widgetbox, and eBay Partner Network . 2) Set up your RSS feed: In eBay Partner Network, go to the “Tools” tab and click on the “Widgets” section. Within RSS Generator, fill in all the details and press the “Generate RSS Link” to create an RSS link. 3) Make Blidgets! Once the link is created, click on the link next to “Widget URL” to turn your RSS feed into a widget you can customize in Widgetbox.

To your continued success,
