eBay advised affiliate entrepreneurs it’s working to make it simpler for them to advertise Certified Refurbished items through the Item Condition discipline, after including it to its ePN Transaction reviews in April.
The eBay Partner Network associates program (ePN) rewards members for attributable visitors and gross sales. Michael Lill, Director of eBay Partner Network, additionally advised contributors that ePN group had a productive second quarter.
In addition to Item Condition monitoring, he pointed to improved curated feeds and Priority Listings. Lill stated eBay had launched the idea of “Priority Listings” in June, describing them as “gadgets which are notably helpful for eBay sellers to promote.”
“ePN is devoted to serving to our sellers optimize their enterprise, so we laid the inspiration by including new “Priority Listings” flags and monitoring parameters to all of our feeds,” Lill stated. “Over time, we’re hoping to supply bonus pricing in order that we reward our companions who efficiently drive conversions of those listings.”
The associates program is one in all many levers eBay makes use of to push its precedence tasks, which embody the Certified Refurbished program (accessible solely to producers or manufacturer-approved distributors) and its Vertical Strategy.
Earlier this 12 months, eBay killed its legacy ePN “rover” hyperlinks, as we reported in February, and by the tip of the 12 months, the ePN associates program will now not help eBay’s Finding API, Shopping API, or Trading API.
