Winning customers is only half the battle. On top of paying you commissions for qualified transactions, we also reward you with a bonus for converting high quality buyers. Here’s how it works: For all qualified sales you drive that were completed by shoppers who haven’t bought on eBay in 12 months or longer before clicking on your link, you receive double commissions. It’s that simple.

4. Promote new categories you historically haven’t presented to your audience. For example, if your website primarily features Home and Garden- try highlighting Fashion pages on your site. Review the various category pages here. Keep in mind that we also help you stay ahead of major retail seasons like Holiday and Back-to-School, as well as big brand launches (iPhone 8, Google Home, etc.) so that you can earn from the early shopping crowds


5. Provide your audience with an incentive to make a purchase. Cash back, giveaways and/or credits are great ways to convert quickly. For example, you could provide an eBay gift card, and users can apply the credit to purchase one of your promoted listings!

6. Place the creatives that we custom-design for you strategically on your website. Cater to natural eye movement by adding logos in the upper left corner, and use banners to organize your content- not obstruct it. Read this blog post for more guidance.
