eBay UK Promotes Cars and Clothes

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines – eBay is promoting its UK marketplace as a venue for car collectors and fashion aficionados.

The eBay Car Challenge kicked off last week and will give three lucky winners 4,000 pounds to use in their amateur car restoration projects. The money must be spent on car parts on eBay.co.uk.

The “catch”: you must be willing to be part of eBay’s promotional campaigns. “The three successful entrants will be required to take part in a communications campaign as we follow their restoration journey and reveal their final completed vehicle at the end,” eBay explains.

To enter the promotion, entrants must submit at least one current photo of the car they wish to restore along with a 500-word proposal describing the restoration and why the entrant wishes to undertake the project. The promotion is limited to private users and residents of the UK, more information is available on the eBay UK website.

eBay UK is also promoting fashion sales through the eBay affiliate program, urging affiliates to drive traffic to eBay, which it calls “a top destination for savings on new, designer and brand name apparel, shoes and accessories.”

“We’re offering deep discounts on the latest styles from shopper-favorite brands, including Burberry, French Connection, Marc Jacobs, Nike, Puma, Zara and more,” the eBay Partner Network told members. Some of the sales that run through March 24th include up to 60% off Rockport and 3 for 2 Maybelline. The sales running through March 31 include up to 80% off Fragrance and up to 75% off Boohoo Menswear.

If you’re a member of eBay’s affiliate program that can drive UK shoppers to its marketplace, look for details on the eBay Partner Network blog.
