Link your site to eBay

If you have your own web page, you can use a "right now on eBay" button (the "Button") to link your visitors to the eBay home page.


To use the Button you must first email us at Trademarks@eBay.com with the following information:
  1. Your full name
  2. Company name (if applicable)
  3. Your address, or if you are acting on behalf of a company, then the company's address
  4. Your telephone number, or if you are acting on behalf of a company, then the company's telephone number and your personal extension
  5. Email address for you and the company
  6. The exact URL to the page on which the Button will appear
  7. Brief description of your website (please provide business area, function and market niche, etc. but do not provide any information that you would consider proprietary or confidential)
  8. In your email, please also include the following statement, confirming you have read and agree to the terms of the Link License Agreement:

    "I have read the eBay Link License Agreement in its entirety and agree to be bound by its terms and conditions. If I am acting on behalf of a company, I confirm that I have the authority to act on behalf of the company and that the company agrees to be bound by its terms and conditions of the eBay Link License Agreement. I understand that I do not have authorization to use the Button until eBay provides me and/or my company with a written permission by reply email."



If your request is approved, you will receive a confirmation email from Trademarks@eBay.com including instructions for installing the Button on your site.

At that point, you must agree to eBay's "Link Agreement". Use of the Buttons will constitute your agreement to the terms described below.

2. RESTRICTIONS.

2.1 You may use the Button only as an active hypertext link to our home page. The Button may not link to any other page(s). You may not frame our site, cause the link to create a new browser window (unless such window occupies 100% of the user's screen and appears above all other browser windows), or otherwise cause users to display our site in a distorted fashion.

2.2 You may display the Button only in the form and at the size we provide to you. You may not modify or alter the Button in any way, including size, proportions, colors, elements, type or in any other respect. You may not animate, morph or otherwise distort the Button's perspective or dimensional appearance, nor may you use screen shots of your pages (to the extent that the Button appears in the screen shot) in any other medium. If we provide you with a substitute version of the Button, you shall replace the Button as soon as reasonably possible.

2.3 The Button shall be surrounded by a reasonable amount of empty space, and you may not use the Button in conjunction with other logos or marks in a way that would create a combination mark. You may not use the Button in a way that suggests that we endorse or sponsor your site. The Button may not appear larger or more prominently than other branding on the page on which it is displayed.

2.4 You may not use the Button in any way that tarnishes, blurs or dilutes the quality of our trademarks or any associated goodwill. Without limiting the foregoing, you shall not display the Button on any pages that contain infringing or illegal content or links.

2.5 You acknowledge our sole and exclusive ownership of the Button, and you shall not take any action inconsistent with such ownership, such as adopting, using, registering, or attempting to register any logo or trademark confusingly similar to the Button. All use of or goodwill associated with the Button shall accrue to our benefit. You may not use the Button in any manner not expressly authorized under this Agreement.

OUR TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU IS LIMITED TO $1,000. Some states do not allow the foregoing limitations of liability, so they may not apply to you.

6. ENTIRE AGREEMENT/AMENDMENT. This Agreement contains the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the Button. However, this Agreement does not modify in any respect our user agreement. This Agreement may be modified only by a written agreement signed by both parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may modify the Agreement in our sole discretion by notifying you by email of any proposed changes, which changes shall be effective upon our sending you a notice to your email address. If you do not agree with any amendments, you may terminate your license to the Button.

7. GENERAL. This Agreement shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of California as such laws are applied to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within California between California residents. Both parties submit to personal jurisdiction in California and further agree that any cause of action arising under this Agreement shall be brought exclusively in a court in Santa Clara County, CA.
