Bonus Promotion

Earn More with Electronics in October!

Fall is here at eBay and that means the summer vacations are over. With our batteries recharged and refreshed, we’re working harder than ever to find ways to help our publishers earn more with our program. Our Back to School Promotion was so successful and so well-received, we thought we’d do another one for October! From the 1st – 31st, you’ll have the opportunity to earn extra cash for driving incremental revenue in the electronics category.

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 October 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 the electronics category for October 2012 compared to June 2012.
  • The bonus applies to Winning Bid Revenue growth in the following category (and subcategories):

Electronics – Consumer Electronics (293), Computers/Tablets & Networking (58058), Cell Phones & Accessories (15032), Cameras & Photo (625) and Video Games & Consoles (1249).

Here’s an example:

In June, Publisher A drives $11,000 of Winning Bid Revenue in the Electronics category.  Then, in October, Publisher A drives $22,000 of Electronics Winning Bid Revenue, representing $11,000 in total growth.  Publisher A would then earn a bonus payment of $5,500 for Electronics.
