I've got news from eBay Partner Network announcing Quality Click Pricing, a new payout structure designed to reward the affiliates. It's a similar model of pay per click (PPC) with a twist of traffic quality defined by the eBay network.
"Over the past year, we’ve taken several steps to improve the quality of traffic driven to eBay sites through eBay Partner Network, and we’re pleased to report that our efforts are paying off. Today we’re announcing Quality Click Pricing, a new payout structure designed to further reward the affiliates who drive incremental transactions on eBay and who send value buyers to our sites. We’re also unveiling a number of resources, tips and data to help publishers become even more successful under this new payment model." (2009, eBayPartnerNetworkBlog.com)
