I'm interested in hearing about examples of how you use your ebay affiliate program. Is it worth it vs affiliating with a real merchant? does anyone put both ebay and regular merchants on the same page?

What I'm doing is, if I can't find a merchant that sells the product, I'll put the ebay affiliate code on the page, but I prefer a regular merchant over ebay.

I have no personal experience of working with Ebay but I seem to remember that with Ebay they have to perform the desired action on that visit. Another merchant may give you a time frame with cookies.

I would use CJ.com because you can promote eBay and regular merchants at the same time. I would use eBay as a recommended or additional resouce at the bottom of your pages after all your regular mechants.

Definately use cj.com if you are going to promote ebay.

Keep in mind that there are thousands of people promoting this same offer though. I tried running it for many different keywords, and I found it too saturated to be profitable.

Ebay is my most frequent reverser.

I use CJ for eBay but only on my sites. Use the Editor Kit to target kw's that are specific to your site or page.
