EBay upgrades affiliate share

This is merely just a note to an earlier post, but as it’d go very much unnoticed if I just added it there, I’m posting it here now… yay: Ebay Increases Payout to its Affiliates

A 10PP increase to 50…75% of the eBay’s whole revenue slice! Pretty decent, uh? EBay definitely does it’s part on pioneering1 the Internet as a business platform. And as hard as it can be to be a pioneer, I’d really like to see these efforts to turn into profit. It would be a strong case for the evolving Internet business ecosystem.

(I don’t know how profitable the API functions of the company actually are right now, but instead of digging that out now I think go get some sleep…)

1) There are of course others, but I believe eBay was the first to provide a serious API. Kudos to them.
