eBay launched its affiliate program in Australia. The eBay Partner Network announced the news on its blog, reporting that eBay Australia attracts 11.3 million unique visitors to the website per month, which it says is more than any other online retailer in the country.
We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our latest international eBay Partner Network website: Australia!
This is great news not just for our Aussie partners, but EPN as a whole. Consider adding Australia to your revenue stream, where eBay is considered the #1 most influential online retail brand and 50% of the entire Australia population who shopped online last year bought something from ebay.com.au.
Here are some other fun eBay Australia facts:
eBay Australia launched way back in 1999, and today there are 11.3M unique visitors to the website per month (more than any other online retailer on the continent)
Australians spent 448 million hours shopping on eBay last year
A car part is purchased every 4 seconds, a piece of jewelry is purchased every 14 seconds, and a smartphone every minute
Ninety-percent (90%) of the 100 million listings are brand new
Over 70% of items purchased are delivered free
80 of the largest 100 Australian retailers are on eBay, offering brands you know and love, 24/7
More than 2,000 Australians have made more than $1 million in sales on eBay since it launched
More than 40,000 Australian small businesses depend on eBay, and approximately 90% of the small and medium businesses export to over 150 countries
Just think about it: when you combine ebay.com.au with EPN, you’ve got one of the largest affiliate program in Australia, covering almost every merchandise vertical imaginable, and offering exceptionally competitive commissions.
Keep in mind that Australia’s peak shopping seasons are similar to those in North America and Europe, and many of the top categories – including fashion, electronics, and automotive – are the same Down Under as well.
