If you’re looking for advanced ways to share your affiliate links, take advantage of our API and Item Feeds. Some of these tools require programming knowledge and access to the eBay Developer Program, but others, like the RSS Feed, allow you to pull listings into your site in real-time without any heavy lifting. Our entire Feeds suite is a great fit for high-volume sites, and many partners prefer to use one or more of these solutions to provide a highly customized experience for their audience.
RSS Feed Generator
To help you optimize your site simply and quickly, the new and improved RSS Generator enables you to filter by occurrence (Daily, Weekly, etc.), commissionable deals (US & CA), listing date, price, and more.
Promotions and Sales Portal
Link to the best promotions, events and deals across eBay. You can search for different types of promotions by program, merchandise category or a themed group. This tool helps partners who want to feature timely content, including Daily Deals and special promotional events.
Our API is an advanced tool for anyone with a strong programming background or access to developers. It allows developers to create a highly customized experience using real-time price and product info for all eBay listings. You'll be able to create a richer shopping experience, feature eBay in a style that fits your website, and build applications to increase eBay purchasing activity. This tool is heavily used by programmers who have advanced audience targeting capabilities.
If you're a high-volume partner needing more data than our API provides, you can download our Product Feed files containing millions of live eBay product listings. By caching the listings on your own system, you can take advantage of this large amount of data to scale up your applications much more. Combine one or more Product Feeds with API calls for more possibilities. This tool is great for high-volume applications such as deals sites, loyalty programs, shopping comparison platforms, and large portals.
