Global rate card

For any qualifying transaction, you receive a percentage of the GMB for that purchase, based on the category-level commission rates shown above. Earnings caps apply per transaction, and you will only be paid once for each qualifying transaction.


A qualifying transaction occurs when an end user:

  • Makes a purchase within 24 hours after clicking your affiliate link for a “Buy It Now” item
  • Places a bid on an auction within 24 hours after clicking your affiliate link and then wins that auction within 10 days

Note: There are certain items for which eBay Inc. earns low or no revenue. In those cases, partners will earn low or no commissions. These items may include, but are not limited to items sold by charities and special promotional deals. 


There may be exceptions to the rate card for certain partners based on their business model or other special circumstances. 


Partners responsible for qualifying sales through with a coupon may receive a reduced commission.
