‘Tis the Season for Unlimited Earning Potential: Leverage “First Minute” Holiday Shopping Today

The holidays have huge earning potential for you – but did you know that the best time to start taking advantage of seasonal shopping is right now? Nearly half of Americans (45%) start holiday shopping well before Black Friday.

We’ve made “First Minute” shopping easy and rewarding. Take advantage of the momentum from new eye-grabbing advertising spots and promotional pushes launching now to help inspire your audience with perfect gift ideas for everyone on their lists.

Here are the top ways to leverage everything we have to offer:

1) In case you didn’t know, we ship free and fast.  Unlike other retailers, no membership is required. In fact 69% of packages ship for free and more than 20 million items will arrive in three days or less.

2) We have everyone’s version of perfect: With more than 1.1 billion products, you’ll discover trending and hard-to-find inventory from across all categories, such as consumer electronics, home & garden, and fashion, at a great value (usually between 20% and 90% off). Share your finds for the perfect gifts for people of all ages – including top brands and highly sought after items like Nintendo’s SNES Classic or WowWee Fingerlings. Also unlike other retailers, who may not match prices on special “deal days” (i.e. Black Friday, Cyber Monday), we also promise no blackout days. The stress of holiday just got a lot lighter.

3) We have the biggest selection of the best deals: On November 1st, we kicked off new, exclusive First Minute deals at more than 30-60% off regular prices with free shipping on some of the hottest holiday gifts from top brands like Adidas, Dyson, Mattel, KitchenAid and more. Use our new, customizable RSS feed generator to pull listings into your site in real time and easily filter by commissionable deals, occurrence, listing date, price, and more. (For more on the RSS feed generator, check out the Quick Start Guide.) We will also keep you apprised of commissionable deals as the season progresses.


4) We guarantee delivery: Confidently assure your audience they’ll have the gifts they need in hand and on time for the holidays, thanks to our new Guaranteed Delivery program, officially launching later this month.

5) And we back it up with our Price Match Guarantee: Your shoppers can rest assured that they’re getting the best value because our Price Match Guarantee ensures eligible deals have the best price online, or we’ll match the lower price of a competitor.

6) We make looking good look easy: Our Creatives are always there to help you make your site look great, and our elves are currently working on special holiday options for you. (We’ll let you know when they’re available in the gallery.)

Your audience can start AND finish early with eBay. By helping them put an end to uninspired, “beige” holiday shopping and directing them to fill their holiday carts with color – and items you recommend for unique, thoughtful, on-trend gifts – you’ll fill your own wallet with the best holiday color of all: green.
