What is the eBay Partner Network?

The eBay Partner Network is eBay’s affiliate marketing program. By signing up and sharing your listings outside of eBay, you can increase your earnings, diversify your revenue streams—and even get a credit for your final value fees when you share your item and it sells.

See how much you can earn

If you drive traffic to eBay and the buyer completes a Qualifying Transaction on one of your items, you’ll receive a commission and an incentive credit to offset your final value fee for that sale. For all other Qualifying Transactions, you can earn commissions up to 4% of the item sale price.
