February 14th, 2006, 12:52 PM #1Ebay Auto commissions?
Happened yesterday, I'm puzzled...
Two big sales:
First one is an old Jeep for BIN $2,500 (private seller)
The other one is a breand-new Lexus for $37,500 (dealership)
Can anyone shed some light at these numbers? I would expect a bigger payout for a $37,500 sale.

Did you contact eBay's affiliate support to see what happened? Something smells fishy here.

Okay... I'm just guessing.
On the Lexus listing page there's a link to eBay financing center:
So, I'm thinking - the buyer financed the car through eBay, set up a payment plan, and made the initial payment. That would explain the $15 commission.
If this is how this works - I should be getting additional payouts every month until the car is paid off.

Hmm. Looking at the eBay listing fees, it should be at least $80 in total for the insertion and transaction fees. Your commission would be $32 on that. However, there's also something called Car Ads. I don't know if that's in addition to your auction or a stand alone thing, but it looks like the fee is anywhere between $9.95 and $299.00... so it might've been something like that. Then again, there might be a discount if they do ebay financing like you suggested they might have done. I'd contact the eBay affiliate managers to find out.

I don't think that they will pay you every month... Looks to me like you are owed allot more cake? I have a car site and I'm paid by leads. I thought about E-bay how does it work for you?
