If at any point in time you signed up to be an eBay affiliate (now called being an eBay “partner”), you may be wondering just exactly how and where to find your eBay commissions reports, to figure out how much commission eBay owes you. The search for where to find your eBay commissions can be frustrating; in fact it’s likely you ended up here for that very reason. We don’t blame you for being frustrated, it’s bad enough that eBay seems to constantly be changing how they deal with regular eBay sellers (who are of course raking in cash for eBay; in 2020 alone eBay had revenue of over $10billion – that’s “billion”, with a B), let alone hiding the ball for eBay affiliates.
But why would eBay want to make it easy on their eBay affiliates, who, after all, use their affiliate links to point to a different seller’s listing, meaning that they are cutting in to eBay’s take on that seller’s sale? Why indeed. And so they don’t make it easy (which again is probably how you ended up here, when searching for this information, and your commission, in the natural place to look for it (i.e. your eBay account) turned up nothing (which is only slightly less than those eBay commissions are likely to be, once you locate them).
Of course, eBay didn’t just make it hard to find your eBay affiliate commissions, it made it hard to earn them too. It used to be that you could make decent coin as an eBay affiliate. That was back when the cookie attached to someone who went through your eBay affiliate link lasted for 7 days, and so was likely to span the entire time of a given auction.
However, some time ago eBay changed how long a cookie lasted to a mere 24 hours, meaning that a person had to visit your eBay partner link and then purchase within 24 hours of that visit or the sale would no longer be credited to you. (For a much more in-depth discussion of this, complete with images from actual affiliate earnings before and after, see this article from SaleHoo.com.)
In any event, you’re here because you want to know how to find your eBay affiliate partner account and those commissions, paltry though they may be. Here’s how.
