Earn money when you drive traffic to eBay

What do I get paid for?

All eBay programs payout their affiliates using the Quality Click Pricing (QCP) payout system. Affiliates will be paid for each click that is directed to an eBay site and the price paid per click will be dependent on the quality of the traffic delivered to eBay. The only exception to this will be publishers whose business model is loyalty or cash back who will be paid out on a Cost Per Action (CPA) model.

How much will I get paid?

eBay Partner Network has some of the most generous affiliate commissions on the web. With Quality Click Pricing, the amount paid for each click varies depending on the quality of the traffic sent to eBay — the higher the quality of the traffic you drive, the more you earn per click. However, you may earn different amounts for each program, as each local site has a slightly different payment structure due to varying market conditions in each country.

How do I get paid?

Getting paid is very straight forward on the eBay Partner Network. You will be paid monthly on around the 25th of each month (on holidays, payments are processed on the next business day following the 25th), in one of the 5 currencies we support: US Dollar, Euro, British Pound, Australian Dollar or Canadian Dollars. We offer two methods of payment — you can choose either Direct Deposit (available in 11 countries) or Paypal. Both options are free and please note that for Paypal no premier/business account or cross border fee will apply.More Information.

How to advertise eBay on your site

Whatever your business model, eBay has an extensive range of tools available to help you improve your campaigns, ranging from simple creatives to putting eBay listings on your own site. To access these tools simply log in the eBay Partner Network and go to the Tools section.

As eBay Partner Network is a global program, some of eBay’s tools are geo-targeted, which means that we identify the location of a visitor to your site and redirect them to the most relevant page. For example, if a person from the UK visits your US site and clicks on your eBay Affiliate link, they will be redirected to ebay.co.uk, rather than ebay.com.
