Ebay

I came across a page today that featured Ebay listings via an RSS Feed.  I didn't think we could include Ebay auctions here.    Does the writer make a commission on these Ebay auctions?

Hi Janet,

possibly the author in promoting his/her own products. Right now, eBay simply doesn't allow that kind of affiliation with Wizzley, but we are currently working on solution for that :)

It wasn't their own auctions since they were all different sellers.  It looks like they created an rss feed with a keyword search in their epn account.  I hope they realize that using their own ebay affiliate links on sites they don't own can get them banned from the epn program.

Actually, that is the responsibility of each individual EPN member, Janet. I'm not a member, but I'm told that the EPN TOS are pretty clear about that.

Yes, Ebay is pretty strict about where their links are.  If the person doesn't take them down, they will definitely cancel their membership.
