Geo-targeting to Maximise eBay Partner Network Earnings

Do you run an affiliate marketing strategy on a website that attracts visitors from around the globe? If so, you need to geo-target your affiliate links to maximise your earnings, read on to find out more and how to achieve this with the eBay Partner Network.

Why You Need to Geo-Target

By default, when you add eBay Partner Network (EPN) links to your website, they will link to only a single eBay marketplace and site (,, etc.) This is fine for visitors in that country, they’ll be nicely lined up to complete a purchase. However, a visitor from another country will be less inclined to purchase from another country’s eBay site. The item may not ship internationally or shipping fees may be off-putting. Some visitors may persist and search for the linked item on their local eBay site, but you won’t get the sale attributed to your EPN account. Either way, by presenting visitors with eBay products not sold locally to them, you will inevitably lose sales and not earn as much commission from the EPN.

eBay Partner Network geo target links

The solution is to present each visitor with a link to the eBay site that is local to them. By presenting eBay products they can purchase locally with ease, they are more likely to complete the sale and earn you a commission. This can be achieved by doing a reverse lookup of their IP address to discover the country they’re from and thus tailoring the links they see accordingly. Thankfully, there are many services available that can take care of this for you. The WordPress plugin Fast eBay Listings has this feature available right out of the box.

How to Display Your eBay Items on Your WordPress site

  • Do you sell items on eBay?
  • Do you also have a WordPress website?
  • Do you wish you could sell your items on eBay and on your WordPress site?

If you answered ‘yes’ to the above, then these eBay selling tips will show you exactly how to do this.

Why Display Your eBay Items on Your Website?

Ultimately, you want to maximise sales. A great way to do this is through exposure and promotion. It can be difficult to make your products stand out on eBay itself, but you can create your own website that does stand out and ranks well in search results.

Use Fast eBay Listings to display your eBay items on your website

Once buyers have found your website, you need to show them what you have for sale and make it easy to buy. You could set up your own e-commerce shop on your site, list all your items there and let visitors buy directly from your site. However, this is a lot of effort: set up time, adding products etc.

It can be challenging to manage stock between your eBay and e-commerce stores. You have to process orders from two different sites, updating the other when an item sells on one, you don’t want to oversell stock or sell the same unique item twice! Updating and syncing prices between eBay and your site is a hassle, overall there is a lot of duplicate effort is required to maintain the two stores.

A better approach is to display your eBay items on your website, displaying their live status, price, images, details and so on. Then simply prompt visitors to purchase and checkout on eBay, a platform they know, trust and probably already have an account on.

As a seller, you then only need to deal with orders from a single source and have a single inventory of items to manage. Once your website is configured to display your live eBay items, you can simply forget about it, knowing it will always be displaying your current eBay items on your site.
