Why aren't my eBay links affiliating? How can I get access to eBay?

How do I get approved for eBay affiliation?

eBay is a restricted merchant in our system, which means that your site will need to be approved directly by them before you're able to affiliate. We can help you apply once you've earned at least $10 in revenue over a 30-day period from our unrestricted merchants. Once that's been accomplished, send an email to support@viglink.com to request your site be submitted for consideration.
