Start Earning Faster With the New Lower Payment Threshold

Here’s the summer lovin’ you’ve been waiting for: Effective as of June 1, 2017, we’ve slashed the payment threshold (e.g. the minimum commission that affiliate marketers need to earn to trigger payment) to just $10.00 in the US or 10 units of currency in international markets (includes CAD, EUR, GBP or AUD).

Previously you’d have had to earn $25.00 US (or 25 units of local currency) to meet that payment threshold. This brand new benefit for affiliates means that you can start earning faster by driving sales. And when you consider that there are more than 1 billion listings in the eBay Marketplace, your earnings potential is virtually endless!

And if you don’t reach the payment threshold for a particular month, don’t worry: Your earnings will rollover to the next month, and you’ll receive payment when the total amount reaches $10.00.

To ensure you are taking full advantage of this new benefit, please verify your account information by doing the following:

●       Log in to your EPN account.

●      Click on the Account tab, then click on Payment Information

●      Enter all the information needed in the Payment Account and Tax Information sections

Once your account info is verified, you can get back to finding, sharing and earning – even more quickly than ever before!

Cross the new threshold with these tips!

 Start by digging into Explore eBay and Trending on eBay. These pages are fed by live eBay buyer and seller data and clearly show you which items are trending and what they are worth. By typing in keywords that reflect the topic(s) you focus on and what your audience may be looking for, you can estimate which items would be the most likely to attract clicks so you can earn commissions on purchases.

For additional inspiration, check out the following:

●      Brand Page

●      Category Page

Additionally, you’ll want to be sure that you’re using the right tools to make it easy for you to add those great picks to your site or social content.

●      If you haven’t tried it yet, the Bookmarklet tool is a great place to start. It is one of the easiest tools available for affiliate marketers, allowing you to generate links as you browse.

●      If you have multiple links pointing to eBay on your site, save time with Smart Links. Simply add a snippet of JavaScript to your website, and Smart Links will convert all eBay links into trackable affiliate links for you.

●      RSS feeds and custom banners are additional easy ways to showcase multiple eBay items to choose from, and are tailored to your site and to your visitors’ preferences.

We’re thrilled to be increasing our affiliates’ earning opportunities by decreasing the payment threshold to just $10.00 US. If you have any questions or need assistance, contact our Partner Success team by emailing epn-cs-english@ebay.com.
