Celebrate Back-to-School with a Chance to Earn More!

While we may be awash in sunny days at the beach and backyard BBQs with family and friends, it won’t be long before summer bids us farewell and the school bells start ringing. Here at eBay Partner Network we’re getting prepped and ready with our Back-to-School bonus promotion for Fashion and Electronics. During the month of August you’ll have the opportunity to earn extra cash for driving incremental revenue in these two categories.

Here’s how it works:

  • This promotion is open to both new and existing publishers on QCP in the U.S. Program.
  • Publishers will earn a bonus on Winning Bid Revenue growth in the month of August 2012.  June 2012 performance will serve as the baseline for the month-long promotion.  (Winning Bid Revenue is what eBay collects in seller fees on transactions.)
  • The bonus calculation will be 50% of the total Winning Bid Revenue growth in each of the two categories for August 2012 compared to June 2012.
  • The bonus applies to Winning Bid Revenue growth in both of the following categories (and subcategories):

Electronics – Consumer Electronics(293), Computers/Tablets & Networking(58058), Cell Phones & Accessories(15032), Cameras & Photo(625)

Fashion - Clothing, Shoes & Accessories(11450), Health and Beauty(26395), Jewelry and Watches(281)

Here’s an example:

In June, Publisher A drives $10,000 of Winning Bid Revenue in the Electronics category and $1,000 in Fashion.  Then, in August, Publisher A drives $20,000 of Electronics Winning Bid Revenue and $2,000 in Fashion, representing $11,000 in total growth.  Publisher A would then earn 2 bonus payments: $5,000 for Electronics and $500 for Fashion.
