Sell Other People's Stuff on eBay through Your Website and Make a Commission
by Brett Miller
 
       So you want to sell other people's stuff on eBay through your website and make a commission for doing nothing, eh?

OK, you won't exactly be doing "nothing." You will need to sign up for the program and post some links on your website, but once that's done, you just let the system do its thing --- which is generating you a passive income string!

Though the "eBay Affiliates" program, you can earn between 50% and 75% of eBay's revenue on all winning Bids that start from a link on your website. And if a new user registers and bids on eBay from your site, you will earn $25.00 - $35.00 per Active Registration. A registration is active when the user places a bid on eBay within 30 days of their initial registration.

Plus, the fact that you will have products automatically updating on your site will help your search engine ranking since keywords from each item will add to your total keyword density. And the search engines LOVE when your site generates new content on a regular basis.

The first thing you need to do is sign up at Commission Junction and get a PID number. Your PID is your website identification number. Let's get started!

HOW TO SIGN UP AT COMMISSION JUNCTION:

1. Go to the eBay Affiliate Commission Junction sign up page.

2. Follow all the steps. Read everything carefully and confirm your acceptance.

3. When you are finished and have received your login information for Commission Junction, login to your Members Area.

HOW TO GET A COMMISSION JUNCTION PID NUMBER:

1. Click on the Account tab (next to "Home")

2. Click on the "Web Site Settings" sub-tab.

3. Click on "Add a New Web Site" button.

4. Fill out the easy form and submit.

5. On your "Account - Web Site Settings" page, you should now see your website listed there with your Name, your new PID number and your URL. Write down this PID number and write it down somewhere you can reference easily.

HOW TO ADD EBAY TO YOUR COMMISSION JUNCTION ACCOUNT:

1. Click on the "Get Links" tab.

2. Under the words "Get Links - Advertiser List" is a Search box with "Advertisers" selected. Type "eBay" next to it and click the "Find" button.

3. You can select any of the offered eBay programs. The one I use is the "eBay Buy. Sell. Trade." (The 6th option when this was written.) To select this one, click on its logo.

4. Read through the information and if it looks good to you, click the "Apply to Program" button at the bottom.

5. Complete the easy application process.

Congratulations! You are now an official eBay Affiliate and can now earn 50% or more of eBay's commission from any eBay item sold via a link on your website. You can also earn $25 to $35 per new eBay member signed up from visitors to your website! (Source: http://affiliates.ebay.com/)

HOW TO CREATE AN EBAY RSS FEED:

You can display up to 200 eBay listings that are dynamically updated in real time on your website by following these instructions:

1. First, sign in to your eBay account. (Yes, you must be an eBay member already. If you are not, sign up for eBay here)

2. Go to eBay's RSS Feed Generator:

http://search.ebay.com/ws/search/AdvSearch?sofindtype=1

3. From this "Advanced Search" page, enter the search criteria for your RSS feed.

4. At the bottom of the page, look for where it says "Affiliate Tracking Information" and click the "Show" link.

5. Select "Commission Junction" as your "Provider."

6. Enter your "Commission Junction PID" that we had you write down earlier.

7. Click the "Search" button.

8. A page of "Results" will appear. Scroll to the bottom of the search results page displayed and click on the orange "RSS" logo.

9. This should open a new window showing the RSS Feed. Copy the page URL at the top into a text document for safe keeping.

Congratulations! You've just created a custom eBay RSS Feed for your website!
