My first attempt at Affiliate Marketing – Rejection

Affiliate Marketing

I admit, I spent a lot of time asking why Google dropped me, thus I was sulking. However, I realized that this won’t do me any good so I started looking for alternatives on how I can make money online even aside from this blog. Well, I browsed and I read a lot of forums, blog posts and other landing pages of ebook selling dudes and decided to pursue, Affiliate Marketing.

My basic idea of Affiliate marketing is that…

  • you promote a product from a company
  • somebody buys what you promote
  • you earn commissions from that company

I also have read that a lot of people are using the Ebay Partner Network and so I decided to apply to it. After a few hours, I got an email I got rejected.

Well, I’m still wondering why I got rejected as this is my first time so has anyone joined the Ebay Partner Network and managed to get in? I would really love to hear your experiences about it. πŸ™‚

  1. hey allen! nag apply din ako sa Ebay partner network mga 2 months ago na. na reject din. tingin ko, di pa sila erady i support ang philippines though halos complete na yung list of city and provinces sa philippines. I tried signing up again, ibang address. US adrress, just to check kung ma aapprove.

  2. nadecline din ako nung nasa CJ pa sila eh!

  4. Well, I dunno why you got rejected, but you could ask them. Or send them a link to this post. Posting about rejection on your blog usually makes their customer service department wake up quickly.

  5. well, i’m just starting out with pepperjam. i applied as ebay partner thru them but my status is still being reviewed.

  6. @Deric – Hmm your address is on the US but your IP is from the Philippines, wouldn’t that raise suspicions? So how did it go? If it was successful, I’d do it too lying about my address. hehe

  7. @Paul U – Hi Paul, thanks for visiting. I also was declined from CJ, ebay and pepperjam. I did a bit of research and I think it is better to apply directly to Ebay so that is what I’m going to pursue.

    Btw, the smart ads are from Abe’s (Yugatech) advertising network.

  8. @Ling – The first reason I thought about why I got rejected is because I’m from the Philippines, but seeing the comment of gladita, it seems it is not the case. I did send an email to their customer support about why I got rejected. I hope to get a good answer.

    I was really excited lol, then got I got rejected hehe

  9. @Gladita – I got rejected also by pepperjam. May I know what did you do to get accepted? Thanks very much! πŸ™‚

  10. I got approved last July 7. I forgot if I applied through a link at I just filled up the details they wanted as completely as I can. Nothing special really. Maybe I just got lucky. πŸ˜€

  13. You know what? the IP didn’t matter. I got approved in 24 hours. The thing is, you wont be able to use it too since you need to enter US tax info. πŸ™
