Where is the eBay link?
« on: November 24, 2018, 09:48:30 AM »
I see the new Amazon link right at the end of my list of TRW screens ["home", "Help", .... , "Members", "Logout"] across the top of the page, just under the URL line.  But, to the best of my recollection, I have never seen an eBay link and can't seem to find one, now.  Because I tend to visit both TRW and eBay daily, I could probably add to you revenues if I go to eBay from TRW with your link.  But, I don't see how to do that.  Hints?

OK, now an eBay link is showing up in my "Ad Choices" at the bottom of the pages.  It is another line of pictures under the original line that is currently a bunch of bathroom faucets (that I have already purchased).

Works for me, assuming it isn't replaced by something else in the future.

But why is the new Amazon link different than the eBay link?

Well, that didn't last long.  Now I am getting two identical rows for Luftansa.  Oh, wait, now there are two rows for eBay as I am typing this.

I am guessing that the eBay link cycles through along with a bunch of other stuff that I am not interested in at all.  So, I was apparently able to miss the eBay link with multiple attempts to find it over an extended period.  That is not even close to being as good as the new Amazon link button at the top of the page.

That eBay link is actually an ad! The amazon red button/link opens amazon.com in a new browser tab with the Railwire’s id.

OK, when I can find the eBay ad, I will use it.  But, sometimes it is there, and more often there is something else there that I have no interest in, at all.  Why not have an eBay "button" like the new Amazon "button"?  Do they both give TRW the same benefit?

There was an eBay program that I could sign up for, but as I recall it wasn’t really worthwhile.
