I just joined the eBay Partner Network and so far I can tell you it is far greater than the CJ.com interface. The interface is very clean. I will be learning a couple things about the new network and hoping for the new release of Build a Niche Store. There seems to be a lot of similarities in the link and differences in IDs. But for right now there does not seem to be a big hype that I can see about eBay's network - but it is definitely a much better interface than CJ.com.
One interesting part that I notice is widgets. Below is a breakdown of what is to come soon within their network:
- Editor Kit: Add relevant, real-time eBay listings to your website or blog in just seconds with the Editor Kit. Filter your results by category, keywords, other eBay search criteria, and more! Customize the look to suit your needs.
- RSS Feed Generator: Easily generate trackable RSS feeds with dynamic eBay content that provides users with live eBay listing information.
- eBay to Go: Showcase your favorite eBay discoveries directly on your website with eBay To Go. Use any of the widgets to easily display eBay listings, search results or store items across the web.
- Quick Banner: Quick Banner is the new easy-to-use tool that allows you to design customized flash banners that display live listings, with the ability to choose from various templates, sizes, colors, and more. Personalize your content with items ranging from search results, category listings, sellers, prices, and even PayPal listings.
Here is a snap shot of their dashboard:
To see eBay Partner Network and have a good introduction about their network view video here. I hope to have a good experience with this and hope the Build a Niche Store Teams have the new release of the new script. If you have not already joined go ahead and do so - you will not be mad at all with the new interface. It is very easy to navigate and create.
The only downside I found is the link generator can be a little faster - it does take a while to generate the link. But again I just joined and learning the ropes of this new network! The link looks very similar to the rover.ebay CJ jump link so you will look at it and see that you may be able to edit some of your code for your ebay store scripts (for those programmers) but look at their API if you have not already done so. I look forward to play around with this network for a bit especially once I upgrade my BANS.
