Ebay purchases - Site upkeep

3 years 10 months ago - 3 years 10 months ago #166862 by Leigh Ping
We don't want your money. Unless you really want to donate. :)

All we'd like you to do is buy your ebay stuff here, then we get a small kickback to the site for it's upkeep and it doesn't cost you a penny. :yesnod:

Here's how to do it:-




It really doesn't matter what you buy. You simply follow the procedure, buy your item and delete the post if you like. Or leave it up so that others can click and buy it if they wish. Our biggest 'Ebay kickback' so far was when David bought a fridge for £219 and we got a small payment for that purchase.

Not much but I guess every little helps.



I bought a watch.



We've got some nice T-Bar stickers to give away. We'll send those to a lucky number of members that have supported us by using this facility. Selection will be random, due to the limited amount that we have. If you're a lucky winner, you'll be informed of that by pm. :)

As soon as we get your ebay kickback, you'll also get free access to the asylum, our very own secret discussion area. :) All payments received go in to the running of this great site. Thanks for your support guys and gals. It's appreciated.
:D

You buy whatever you like. It doesn't need to be MG related.

If you see a good bargain, feel free to post it up and share the opportunity with our other members. :)

I use a sniping app for ebay auctions, so I cant see how that will work with the widget. But I can use it for buy in now purchases.

It seems a little tricky but next time I use Ebay I will give it a try.

Cheers Bob. I'm sure you'll be fine. Once you've done it once, it's easy enough. I keep forgetting.. :P

We'll let you know by pm what random percentage they kicked back. Obviously, if someone were to buy that Bugatti, Psymon might start upgrading the site again! So, please try to keep it under 1.8 million. :D

No. It won't work for auctions, unless you want to advertise what you are tyrying to buy! :dry: :nonod: It's fine for 'buy it now' type of ebay purchases. :yesnod:

It helps to keep the main site free to use with photos, avatars and unlimited personal messages available to all! :broon:

I'm always buying things on ebay Leigh. :broon:

Thanks for the demo I'll do it from now on.


Edit. Ok just done it ;) Just a question, will an add blocker stop the kickback to the T Bar?

Ad blocker won't effect it, just need to follow the Buy It now link in the widget as that inserts our Partner ID into the ebay item

The flip side of this will be that hopefully other forum members won't bid the price up.


Home to black MGZS180, yellow MGZS180, blue MGZR160, green MGF VVC and red MG Maestro T16.

MG - the friendly marque.

Given that there aren't that many regular members from here in Oz, it's not the other forum members that are likely to be competing with me.
