    I notice that I got a transaction labelled "Bonus" from eBay today. I didn't receive any letter explaining it -- I assume it has something to do with their missing transactions.

    Anyone get an e-mail on this?

    No email here either, but it was a pleasant surprise!

    Isn't this merely the monthly bonus for reaching certain tiers? It happens about this time each month.

    In the past it has been termed Performance Incentive, but I think this could be a change from the recent update. The international standard for bonus's is "BONUS", not "PERFORMANCE INCENTIVE".

    No, I'm nowhere near the tier levels.

    I got a lousy 1 cent.

    I don't think that was worth the paperwork to give me.

    Guess all of you aren't on the eBay VIP affiliate list. So, here goes:

    quote:
    Dear eBay affiliate,

    We love you so all much, and as a token of our affection, we're giving all of our affiliates a bonus for their hard work.

    Of course, chances are we'll reverse it later, but we thought this might provide the temporary motivation to put up more eBay pages and links, so we have more to reverse in the future!

    Love,
    Your Love Boat Crew
    oops, we meant eBay Affiliate Team




    Seriously, I didn't get any E-mails either. Guess something will eventually come through that will explain the unexpected windfall!

    Andy

    I built the site with the page that had the link to the merchant. I optimized it. It was my traffic that clicked the link, it was my link, and I'm the one who sold the product. So why are the PARASITES getting the commission?

    I got this email on Feb. 26th from ebay-


    --------
    Dear Larry Wentz,

    You may be aware that the volume of reported sale actions (both bids and Buy-it-Now???s) has been low during the last couple days. eBay and Commission Junction are resolving the issue and expect a fix by Friday evening (February 27, 2004). This outage began at 12noon PST on Tuesday, February 24.

    We recognize that this outage impacts the number of ACRUs that your program generates as well as your ability to achieve performance incentives in the month of February. Once the bid and BIN tags are fixed, we will quickly work to determine the best method to fully compensate you for any potential lost eBay traffic. We are also working hard to make sure your February commission check reflects the transaction activities driven during the month.

    eBay apologizes for any inconvenience this has caused and is working hard to remedy the situation quickly. We will continue to keep you informed as more information is available.

    Sincerely,

    The eBay Affiliate Team
    ----------------

    I think these "bonuses" are related to that.
