First Steps to Get Started
Your first step is to apply to join our affiliate program; it should take less than five minutes. We encourage anyone who is interested in becoming an eBay affiliate to apply, and we don't require exclusivity so you're free to promote eBay Partner Network alongside other affiliate programs.
After you're accepted into eBay's affiliate program, you'll get access to our Publisher Portal, which includes banners, buttons, text links, our API and other tools you can add to your website or social page. Getting started can be as simple as copying and pasting code from our text link wizard to your site, or as advanced as using our API to create more customized solutions.
You have the freedom to choose the tools that work best with your technical knowledge, your site's look and feel, and your goals. You also have the ability to choose the content that will appeal to your audience, by promoting specific items or categories that will resonate with your visitors' interests.
Begin Earning Money for Referring Buyers
As you drive traffic to an eBay site and your referred shoppers complete a Winning Bid or Buy It Now purchase, you'll earn a percentage of eBay's revenue. The more revenue your traffic generates for eBay, the more money you'll earn.
Our pricing is based on commission rates that range from 40% to 80%, based on the category of the item sold. You can earn even more with a 200% bonus by driving new and reactivated eBay buyers to purchase.
You can choose to receive your monthly payments via direct deposit or PayPal. We keep it simple and transparent by handling all tracking and reporting, and you can view your traffic and earnings details within our Publisher Portal at any time.
Build a Partnership Based on Continuous Improvement
We view our affiliates as true business partners, and we are constantly improving our analysis tools, products and compensation to ensure that our program is as user friendly and ROI positive as possible for our partners.
Our most successful partners continually focus on creating a great overall user experience, using eBay listings to enhance already relevant site content. The reports and analytics in our Publisher Portal will help you measure, test, analyze and optimize your efforts as you move forward.
