And in regard to Ebay, I have to assume it's the registration commission of $45 (not the rate schedule of $0.10 - $0.25 per bid) that inspires anyone to bother joining their affiliate program. Is anyone really making money from $0.10 commissions? What happens when everyone in the world is registered at Ebay--will the party be over?
I don't think there is really anyone who will target the $0.10-$0.25 per bid. But the registration commission of $45 is also only if you got 7500 registrants per month. So eBay has really become a volume game. After this new Google affiliate policy, it is the high volume players who bid high and have taken up the sole spot for eBay making it much tougher for the smaller players.
