Commission Example


You have a blog focused on weddings. A wedding dress you feature with an eBay Partner Network link has a Buy it Now price of $1000 on A user clicks on your link and buys the dress right away, well within 24 hours of clicking. The wedding dress is in the "Fashion" category and "Clothing, Shoes, and Accessories" sub-category. In the US, this earns a commission of 6% of the sale price, so you'd generate $60 in earnings.
