eBay to bring affiliate program in-house?

No primary category set

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.

  1. what will happen for the small balances currently with cj or tradedoubler?
    I don’t want to lose the small amount I have earnt, but it’s just too small to be paid out and i am only really using ebay…

  2. Hi Thierry,
    We don’t have any more details than this at the moment, but I would speculate either they’d switch your balance to the new program, or make a one-off payment before closing the account. You do know the minimum payout for CJ is only £16, don’t you?
