Ebay purchases - Site upkeep 2 years 4 months ago #188758

Does it take a while to come through or have I done something wrong ... ?


These are simply a link to eBay, we, the forum, get a small payment when one of us, the forum members, click on one of these eBay links.

If you have bought an item through one of these links you need to communicate with the eBay vendor.

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

MG - the friendly marque.

There's nothing on the video about contacting the vendor .... ? I've bought a couple of bits via the site but just didn't know if anything has gone through is all.

Dan,
through this thread only a link to ebay is created. When you click on it it brings you to the original offer on ebay and you order there.
The complete order process incl all options to contact the seller is via ebay.

Creating the link on our page only helps us to create a small amount of $ through an affiliate program.

If you did not place the order on ebay - you did not place it at all.

That's what I've done - posted the links - gone to the item via the link and bought them. I just wondered if you get some sort of confirmation that it's been done and the site has had some kickback from them, or I'm doing it wrong. Never mind ....

We've got no tracabilty of who bought what, or who followed a link. we do get a graph of clicks and any earnings.
How its calculated is a little convoluted, Basically if ebay deem an ebay item was purchased due to somebody following a link from here we get a share of the ebay sellers fee.

In practice the link you post up here then go on to purchase, we probably won't see anything from as you've allready browsed the item before comming here, However when somebody else follows the link then goes on to puchase something that should be attributed to us.

Posting items in this thread simply keeps the traffic flowing.

Here's what i see

Are you saying if I brows eBay, see something I want, then come here and link to it. If I then purchase the item through the link I placed here, you (the site ;) ) then gets nothing?

Only if someone else sees the link on here, and purchases through it, will the site get any reward?
