    By the way the affiliate who stole the most comissions under the new plan made 1.4 million last month.

    Thanks, Chet. I got that same E-mail through CJ. I just wondered if it had been published somewhere else, because eBay's TOS at CJ and on their own site don't indicate they've rolled out the welcome mat for the parasites.

    What is going on with eBay? Do they just not care about being ethical any longer? I just read this news report about a car seller who was turned in for fraudulent feedback. eBay suspended their seller account, only to have the seller come back using a different name. Then, for some unknown reason, eBay restored the original account! Even though they were caught red-handed!

    I'm beginning to wonder if promoting eBay is a bad thing...

    OK the die is cast and it's time to let you guys & gals put on your sleuth hats


    Who are these top 10 eBay affiliates?

    If the "incenters" technics to generate millions of signups for the double/triple tier BID/BIN fees dont's adhire to this rule then they are in violation...

    Rule: "* The eBay program compensates for one bid or BIN per click from your Web site. This means that your site links must be used as navigation to the eBay site prior to every bid or Buy it Now (BIN) transaction in order for you to be compensated for the bid or BIN. Rates are effective February 1, 2004."

    None of these top 25 Super/Duper affiliates generate that volume required of physical clicks from their domain sites. Not all new registrants (0.05 -0.15) jump into the higher bid transaction payout bracket ($5 to $15) to make the 1.4 million monthly commission payout without "tricks for clicks" & cookie stuffing.

    Where are all those eBay cookies coming from ...and how! Not knowing will assure the same practices will be repeated by these greed mongers to drain the earning powers of the masses of normal affiliates competing with normal cookie setting restraints of physical clicks. Bring them and their domains out in the open for discussion at ABW.

    Mike & Charlie ...

    If they won't adopt and feed a bird ..flip them one! BBQ some Gator and remember to flush WhenU..

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: Never trust a CHEAPSKATE merchant!

    It never seems to fail that a cheapskate won't take steps to lower their already-low payout--or to try to stop paying out at all (their ultimate objective).

    And any place that pays only 5c for anything, definitely qualifies as a cheapskate no matter how many nickels a site manages to get out of them.

    ~Cheapskate merchants need not apply

    I have a sneaky feeling that their top affiliate is n-case. They claimed to have generated $18 million from popups in 2003 and lists ebay as their top advertiser. They also list Looksmart and Rollingstone.com as affiliates. I think any ebay advertiser is considered an "affiliate"
