The Dev Conf agenda is posted here.
There are no sessions on the new ePN affiliate program nor its poor performance. But I’m sure an affiliate revenue question will be raised in every session. I’ll ask the other big affiliates if they saw any issues or decline in sales after the migration to ePN.
eBay released some information on possible issues. Here’s a snippet:
So that you know more of what’s going on behind the scenes right now, we have our teams looking into the traffic drop around the May 12th timeframe (this has been an ongoing investigation for a while) as well as the more recent Editor Kit-specific issues that have been reported. I don’t have anything concrete to provide right now but we will keep you updated with additional posts when we have more information, hopefully later this week. And just to make sure that everyone is aware, the makegood policy has stayed the same on eBay Partner Network as it was on CJ. If and when we find any tracking issues that affect affiliate commissions, we will issue makegoods to the affiliates who were affected.
Also, the links policy changed on May 19. I’d like to discuss my watcher counter widget with an eBay policy person.
