The commission rate is based on the fee that eBay charges for sales at their site. They pay a share of their profits from sales, depending on the product category. I don’t know exactly how much you would earn from sales but 50% and higher commission rates should seem good.

The biggest reason to sign up and promote eBay is probably their vast selection of products. A little like Amazon, eBay also has almost every kind of product for sale at any given time.

You will also get access to lots of marketing tools. You can use the link generator or bookmarklet tool to easily create affiliate links to the pages at eBay that you want to promote. This could, for instance, be a search result page, the homepage, or a custom URL.
