Introducing Product Description Page Functionality for Link Generator

As part of our continuing transition toward a more product-based experience, we’re rolling out some new link generator functionality this week that we wanted to share with you. We have added Product Description Page (PDP) functionality to Link Generator.

  • You can access link generator by logging into the portal and going to Tools > Link Generator.
  • For Link Type, select eBay Product ID and fill in the relevant eBay product ID.
  • To obtain links for a particular country program, search for the product on that country’s eBay Marketplace site (e.g., US: www.ebay.com, DE: www.ebay.de, etc.) For example, you could search for “Apple iPhone 4S (Latest Model) - 16GB - White (AT&T) Smartphone.”
  • Look for the Product ID embedded in the URL, usually next to the product name. In this link, for example, you would gather the number in bold: “http://www.ebay.com/ctg/Apple-iPhone-4S-Latest-Model-16GB-White-ATT-Smartphone--/109348370?_refkw=iphone+4s&...” You could also look for the eBay Product ID (EPID) at the bottom of “Product description” section on the page.

We’re excited to able to offer you this new PDP functionality. We believe it will provide a better customer experience, higher conversion rates and higher earnings. Please note that this PDP functionality will initially be available for the US, UK, CA, & DE programs with additional programs added over time.
