TLDR: starting October 1st, we will have more eBay Deals coverage once again, after a couple of years of hiatus!
WHY: eBay is streamlining their affiliate program starting October 1st, making it once again similar to the affiliate programs of most other retailers like Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Best Buy, etc. The return to a conventional format makes it a lot easier from a practical blogging perspective. eBay had a streamlined affiliate program before, but a couple of years ago, they came up with a convoluted one that made it too painful for blogging purposes. For example, you couldn't click on the affiliate links to test/check them, so for every eBay deal posted here, I would have to keep a separate set of browser tabs, so I can check/recheck whether each deal changed/expired/sold-out. Needless to say, this type of an exercise got too painful real fast. With this new change, eBay is now just like other marketplace retailers like Amazon, etc.
