Ecommerce Trade Information

One of many methods eBay drives visitors to the positioning is thru its internet affiliate marketing program, and on September 1st, eBay raised charges it pays to members of the ePN program (eBay Accomplice Community).
That feels like excellent news for sellers (and associates), however there’s a catch. The brand new charges are solely obtainable to sure members of this system. And extra importantly to sellers, the upper charges solely apply to sure sorts of objects – so associates could not have an elevated incentive to drive visitors and gross sales to your listings.
As we reported final month, eBay launched the idea of “Precedence Listings” in June, that are “objects which are significantly priceless for eBay sellers to promote.” ePN Director Michael Lill had indicated that eBay hoped to supply bonus pricing over time with a purpose to reward companions who drove conversions of Precedence Listings.
The Fee Card hasn’t modified since August of 2020, which you’ll be able to entry on the eBay Accomplice Community web site. The brand new charges for Precedence Listings are defined on the eBay Accomplice Community web site, the place it explains, “Precedence Itemizing transactions earn 1.5 instances the usual fee for that transaction.”

(That’s the instance eBay used, however a $10 affiliate charge can be for a high-value merchandise; for instance, the ePN charge for Collectibles is 3%, so a $333 attributable sale of a collectible would net an affiliate $9.99.)
Sadly the ePN web site doesn’t clarify what sorts of objects qualify for Precedence Listings, nevertheless it’s value declaring that eBay has been investing in its Licensed Refurbished program and in sure classes together with sneakers, buying and selling playing cards, luxurious watches, and designer purses.
