Spend less time managing eBay Partner Network ads and let our tools do the work for you

Please refer to the Auction Affiliate help page for more information

Do I need to be a eBay Partner Network member?

Yes, in order to use Auction Affiliate you must provide a eBay Partner Network (ePN) campaign ID linked to your account. This ensures clicks of links generated by Auction Affiliate are associated with your ePN account.

You can read more information and apply for an account at the official eBay Partner Network website.

Is there an option to cloak roverized affiliate links?

Not at this time. Some affiliates may prefer to cloak roverized links to eBay so links appear to be to the same domain which are then redirected to eBay once clicked.

This is a feature I am considering adding but for now all links are roverized and contain the rel="nofollow" attribute for SEO purposes.

How can I modify the appearance of Auction Affiliate?

As well as choosing from different themes and choosing a primary/secondary/background colour you can also change the appearance using simple CSS rules.

You can change the CSS rules for Auction Affiliate by specifying new rules in your style sheet. As a quick example, to make all of the product titles red and italic you would add this rule to your style sheet :

/* Make the item title link red and italic  */
.aa-container .aa-item .aa-title a {
  color: red;
  font-style: italic;
}

All themes can be adjusted in this way.

How often does Auction Affiliate update?

To reduce server load and to improve page load performance, Auction Affiliate does not update every time it is loaded on your site. Instead it updates every 60 minutes.

How can I increase the size of item images?

Item images can be increased in size by using CSS to overwrite the dimensions set by Auction Affiliate. To alter these dimensions add the following CSS rule to your stylesheet, changing the values as desired:

/* Increase the size of your item images  */
.aa-container .aa-img-wrap {
  width: 140px !important;
  height: 140px !important;
}

It is recommended that the width and height values are the same so the image does not become distorted.
