Placing eBay's auctions on
InfoBarrel is another exciting opportunity to help publishers make even more
money off their content.
In order to make money via eBay, publishers will need to sign up for the eBay Partner Network.
Signing Up For The eBay Partner NetworkThe first step is to go to their sign up page and sign up for an account. You will want to read over their Term and Conditions and check the applicable boxes (All of them!).
Once you click continue, you will be brought to the second page of the sign up process.
Fill out all the information accurately, as these are the people who will be sending you your checks. The wrong address will result in you not receiving your payments.
When you get to the part that asks what your primary business model is, select Natural Search/Website.
In your business description, type in blogging.
In Website URL, enter your user profile. For example, if your user name was Test on InfoBarrel, your user profile would be http://www.infobarrel.com/Users/Test
To find your user profile on InfoBarrel, go to www.infobarrel.com and login in the top right corner. After you are logged in, you will see a link to [my account] in the top right corner. This is the URL you should supply.
Once you have filled all the correct information, submit it and wait for approval. Approval can take anywhere from nearly immediately up to 48 business hours. Once approved you will receive notification in the e-mail you supplied.
