Tomorrow, June 1, eBay increases their affiliate payout from 40% to 50% of the final value fees. I’ve been working on a little add on service to make it easy for people to participate in the feeding frenzy.

This is how the money allocation is tracked. A person is directed to eBay by your Rover affiliate link and a cookie is placed on their machine which expires immediately. eBay gives you credit for the person’s purchases up to 7 days after the cookie expires. If the person goes to eBay again from another affiliate link, that cookie then overrides yours and the other affiliate gets the money.

An average purchase of a $25 auction pays $.65 to the affiliate. Once someone bought a $4,000 car through one of my affiliate links. The payout was $30.

Moving on to the natural world… We’ve had some nice days here in Chicago. At least the 17 year Cicadas in Palos Forest Preserve think so.
