If you are looking to learn how to make money from eBay, you have a definitely come to the right place. You are probably thinking I am going to be showing you how to sell physical products yourself, and give you advice on how to list your own products so that people will buy them.
No, I’m not going to do that at all. I’m going to show you something even better. I’m going to show you how you can make money by promoting other people products. This is great because it means you don’t even need to list any products on eBay yourself. All you need to do is drive people towards existing eBay listings.

About the eBay Partner Network
Here is a great video introducing the eBay affiliate program:
Sounds great doesn’t? See how easy it is. You sign up and then start promoting products on your website. Okay, so there is a bit more to it than that, which is why I have written the rest of this guide.
How to Decide on a Niche
If you don’t already have a website, you will need to create one. But before you create a website, you will need to first decide what niche that website is going to be about. It’s not very effective to have one big site that promotes lots of different products. Instead, it is far better to focus your website on a single topic of interest.
So, how do you decide what nice your new website should be about? I have already written about this as part of another article. Clicking the link below will open it up on a new window, and then you can come back and read the rest of this article afterwards.
Although in the above link I talked about finding a niche on Amazon, this can still totally apply to eBay products. Both sites sell the same wide range of products, and you can tap right into that and make use of it to earn money.
How to Build a Website Free
You won’t get very far with promoting eBay products unless you have a website. But how do you create a website? It’s actually a lot easier than it used to be. There are now places where you can create a website quickly and easily. A really great place is SiteRubix. I have written a full article on this topic below, so take a look at it and then come back here afterwards:
Also, here is a great video comparing several different free website platforms:
Find Products to Review
Again, Amazon is your best friend here. I actually think Amazon is a better place to find good products to promote because it is organised better than eBay. Amazon has their best sellers list in each category, so that makes things super easy. Take a look at the following link to another article where I explain how to find products on Amazon to review:
Then once you have found some products you would like to review, take a look on eBay to make sure they are listed on there too. They probably will be, but it’s worth checking anyway.
How to Write Product Reviews
Okay, so you have your chosen product, and now you want to write a review. So how do you do that? Well, you do need to be thorough and include all relevant information that they might be looking for. However, once you know how to structure the review and you have done it a few times with several different products, it actually gets easier. Again, follow the link below where I have explained it in another article:
It’s also worth watching the following short video which explains the process slightly differently:
How to Find Great Keywords
There is a simple equation here. If you can find search terms that real people are actually searching for but which are not showing up on many other websites, then you can show up in Google for these terms. Click below to learn about how to find the amazing keywords:

What’s inside Wealthy Affiliate?

Got any questions/comments?
I know how confusing it can be when you are first starting out in the affiliate marketing game. Several years ago I was in exactly the same position. So if you need any help or have any questions that weren’t as answered here, please post a comment below and I will reply as soon as I can.
Wishing you great success!
