eBay is encouraging affiliates to promote its French and Italian sites this spring. The eBay Partner Network is offering all publishers who promote the French and Italian programs an opportunity to enjoy higher commission rates between March 1 and May 31, 2012.

All QCP publishers, existing and new, are eligible to participate in the 3-month promotion. There is no conditional traffic volume increase, but the ePN wrote, "we hope that you will take advantage of the promotion and explore new innovative ways of promoting and during this time, which will have a positive long-term effect on your overall ePN earnings."

The promotion terms are as follows: 30% increase on the publishers QCP payment. The additional payment will be issued in form of bonuses. It will be calculated monthly per program per account and paid in each following month.

More information is available on the eBay Partner Network blog.
