Valleywag reports that eBay are to bring their affiliate program in-house, ending their relationship with ValueClick’s Commission Junction. The website for the new venture appears to allow logins – for beta testers? – and the “eBay Partner Network” is included on a list of eBay subsidiary companies from last December.
I won’t be sad to see the back of CJ. Their website is close-to-impossible to use, and their treatment of this particular publisher feels like something out of a Kafka novel. So I’m very much looking forward to seeing what this new program offers.
