No Payment Threshold for November 2010 Payment

Hello Partners, As we mentioned in our blog post from last year, we will be removing the minimum threshold again for this year’s November payment disbursement.

The payment disbursement from Wednesday, November 24, 2010 will have no minimum threshold. This means that as long as your eBay Partner Network account is in good standing, you will receive your outstanding balance paid in full, even if your balance due is less than 25 (USD, CAD, EUR, GBP or AUD).

Also, due to the Thanksgiving Holiday in the United States we will be paying one day earlier, on November 24th, and not as usual on the 25th of the month.

For the November 2011 disbursement we will remove the payment threshold again, allowing us to better serve you.

Note that as always, eBay Partner Network reserves the right to suspend payment temporarily if a Partner is placed under investigation for violation of our Code of Conduct or our Advertiser Terms and Conditions. In such a case, the Partner will be contacted.

Thank you for your support. The eBay Partner Network Team

Tips for Clicks in Fashion

Even the most fanatical of fashion enthusiasts love a great deal. But for most, it’s the thrill of finding that one item which makes them feel confidently chic, that ultimately drives a purchase. That’s where eBay comes in. With its ever-changing collection of clothing, shoes and accessories ranging from one-of-a-kind vintage steals to top-branded basics, eBay offers every shopper a place to find something that fits their personal style.

To drive high performance with eBay Fashion banners, entice your visitors not only with great deals, but with content that says your site is in-the-know about what’s trending and more importantly, how to find it on eBay.

Here’s how:

  • Surround eBay Fashion creative with relevant content about style tips and trends
  • Entice the reader to click-through
  • Lure them in with the promise of unique and unexpected fashion finds (i.e. high-quality, good brands, a special piece)

Select (or request) high quality photos of items that are in style or covetable, unique items (that ugly Christmas sweater doesn’t go here).

Five Fall Fashion Trends

  1. Faux fur: Whether it’s for staying warm or making a statement, everyone is sporting bits of fur this fall. Women are wearing fur on everything from fur-trimmed hoodies to full-on fur vests.
  2. Animal print: If you don’t get enough animal-inspired flair from faux fur, it won’t be hard to get your animal on another way with animal prints showing up on flats, belts, even trench coats. Pump up your everyday look with a pair of leopard print heels.
  3. 60’s: AMC’s show, Mad Men, not only spurred a flurry of NetFlix rentals, but also launched a round of 60’s inspired dresses. Pencil skirts with tailored, cropped jackets and round full skirts nipped at the waist bring back a sweet femininity that contrasts with the simultaneous emergence of men’s inspired styles.
  4. Menswear: Speaking of menswear, there’s a whole new crop of women’s wear inspired by men’s wardrobes: Collared button-downs and lace-up Oxfords are huge this fall.
  5. Military: You’ll find structured jackets, buttons and buckles in military neutrals all over stores in designer and mass brand corners. Discover great vintage finds for this look as well.

How to Promote eBay Fashion

There are a variety of ways to boost your revenue by promoting Fall’s hottest fashions on eBay:

  • Search by Clothing, Shoes & Accessories in the “Category” drop-down menu in the Creatives Generator and select from a variety of static and dynamic banners.
  • Use the Link Generator Tool with the Custom URL or Item ID options to link directly to fashion items.
  • Utilize the Fashion Data Feed in the Tools section of your Dashboard. If you do not have access to our data feeds, send an e-mail to ePN-cs-english@ebay.com with a request.

Holiday 2010 - Top Selling Products to Promote on eBay

Online holiday shopping tends to ramp up as autumn hits, peaking during Cyber Monday and staying steady through the end of December. By prepping your content and links now, you can catch the attention of holiday shoppers and avoid scrambling to form a strategy when the holidays hit. As the holidays approach, keep up with trade publications and trend-spotting websites to capitalize on the must-have items of 2010. Though it may be too early to predict the specific items that will be hot this year, there are several categories that tend to be mainstays for holiday shoppers.

Top 300 Holiday Items We have compiled a list of the most popular gift items this holiday season to make it even easier for you to promote the top converting items in 2010! Here are both an Excel file and a tab delimited text file of these top holiday gift ideas.

Décor & collectibles eBay has become the online destination for holiday decorations, accessories and collectibles. From Christmas trees to Hanukkah menorahs, shoppers know these items can be found for an affordable price on the site. Collectors scour eBay year-round for collectibles from manufacturers of classic holiday items, including Department 56 villages, Hummel figurines and Hallmark ornaments. Gizmos and gadgets Our electronics category is a top destination for holiday gift seekers. GPS navigation systems, cell phones, laptops and other devices that make the recipient’s life a little easier are always big hits. Items such as mp3 players, video games and systems, and Blu-ray players tend to show up under the tree of boys and girls on Santa’s “Nice” list. Toys for Tots Savvy shoppers know it’s much easier to find the hot toys of 2010 on eBay rather than fruitlessly fighting through crowds at 4 a.m. the day after Thanksgiving. Action figures, Disney character items and board games remain popular searches year after year, and parents know eBay is the go-to site for both the classic toys and latest fads that junior can’t live without.

To promote these hot holiday items, use the Link Generator Tool with the Custom URL or item ID options.

As the most wonderful time of the year approaches, be sure to check out eBay Pulse to get insight into the most sought after items on the site, as organized by category. If you haven’t started strategizing yet, now is the time to start thinking about how you’ll take advantage of the holiday shopping rush so you’re not left out in the cold!

Earn a bonus of up to 50% on your European campaigns in November and December 2010

eBay Partner Network is offering you the chance to earn even more from your European campaigns during this year's holiday shopping season with a Holiday promotion in November and December 2010. The promotion includes all European Programs (United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Ireland and The Netherlands). This promotion is available for all publishers on Quality Click Pricing who generated earnings in August 2010.

How does the Promotion work?

If you increase your earnings during the months of the promotion by at least 20% compared to your earnings in August 2010, you will be eligible for a bonus on your total earnings for that month. These bonuses will be tiered as follows:

Earnings Increase compared to August 2010

20% - 34.99%  -  Earn a 10% bonus

35 - 49.99%  -  Earn a 30% bonus

Greater than 50%  -  Earn a 50% bonus

Bonuses will be calculated per Program and Account, as per the example below:

Program             August Earnings                Nov. Earnings      % Increase             Bonus %/ Nov. Payment

Germany            2,000                                    2,500                        25%                        10% / 2,750

France                1,000                                    2,000                        100%                      50% / 3,000

Please note that bonuses will be calculated separately for November and December, and paid together with the rest of your earnings for that month. For example, if your November 2010 earnings are 25% higher than your August earnings, you will earn a 10% bonus on your November earnings. If your December earnings are then only 10% higher than your August earnings, you would not receive a bonus for December.

With this promotion, there's even more opportunity for you to benefit from the peak holiday shopping season this year with eBay Partner Network!
