An Overview of eBay Home Page Links
7 of 11 in Series: The Essentials of Joining the eBay Community
At the very bottom of the eBay home page is an unassuming group of links providing ways to get to some seriously handy pages. Here are some brief explanations of what you can expect to find at the other end of those eBay links:
Feedback Forum: This link takes you to one of the most important spots on eBay. The Feedback Forum is where you can place feedback, respond to feedback left for you, and find out whether you’ve forgotten to place feedback on a transaction — all in one friendly location.
Downloads: A link to eBay-supplied software and toolbars.
Gift certificates & Gift Cards: Send an eBay gift certificate for any special occasion. You can print it yourself, or eBay will send it to any e-mail address you provide. The gift certificate is good for any item on the site, as long as the seller accepts PayPal.
Jobs: Click here if you want to work for eBay instead of through eBay.
Affiliates: If you have your own Web site and want to make a few bucks, click this link. If you sign up for the program and put a link to eBay on your Web page, eBay pays you for new users who sign up directly from your Web site (plus other bonuses). Click the link for the current details.
Developers: If you develop software and would like to design some to use with eBay, you can join the developers’ network.
The eBay Shop: This link enables you to browse and buy eBay merchandise from the eBay company store.
eBay Mobile: eBay’s mobile service for cell phones, eBay Mobile, is designed just for small screens. Stay connected to eBay from your mobile phone browser.
About eBay: Click this link to find out about eBay the company and to get its press releases, company overview, and stock information. You can also find out about eBay community activities and charities — and even apply for a job with eBay.
Security Center: This link takes you to a page where concerns about fraud and safety are addressed.
Policies: This is a good place to visit to brush up on the site’s policies and guidelines.
Government Relations: Get active in the politics of online selling and buying. Join groups, send letters to congresspeople, and make a difference!
Site map: Here’s a second link to the eBay site map (the other link is above the navigation bar).
Help: For some reason, eBay felt the need to put another help link at the bottom of the home page. Save yourself some scrolling and use the link on the navigation bar!
On other eBay pages, the bottom navigation bar looks a little different. It often includes even more links so that you can cruise the site quickly without using the navigation bar.
