Rare eBay Referral Offer: Give $10, Get $10, YMMV


  • Global Moderator

    I can’t recall eBay ever offering a referral program so I thought this was worth posting, especially since you can also “refer” someone who hasn’t used their existing eBay account for at least 12 months and you can earn up to 10 vouchers.

    Refer a Friend. Give $10, Get $10: Introduce friends to eBay and you’ll both get rewarded!

    For a limited time, refer your friends to eBay and we’ll give you both $10 once they’ve made their first purchase.

    1. Share your referral link with friends who are new to eBay.

    2. They join and make a purchase.

    3. You’ll both get $10 to spend on eBay!

    FAQs

    What is the “Refer a Friend” Program?
    For a limited time, we are offering select US-based eBay members the opportunity to refer US-based friends to eBay and earn a $10 eBay voucher when the friend registers for an eBay account and makes his/her first purchase on eBay. Select US-based eBay members can also earn a $10 eBay voucher when they refer US-based friends who have an eBay account but have not made a purchase on eBay in the last 12 months and the friend makes a purchase on eBay. We will also give the friends a $10 eBay voucher. Some restrictions apply; see our terms and conditions for details.

    …You will receive a $10 voucher in your eBay account within ten (10) business days after your Friend’s purchase is completed (i.e. your Friend has paid for the item and the item has shipped). You can earn up to a maximum of $100 in vouchers by referring up to ten (10) Friends to eBay.

    Make sure you read the terms carefully to understand what vouchers may be used for, how returns of items paid with vouchers are handled, and restrictions against creating fake accounts.

    How does it work?
    Currently, the program is by invitation only and only available to eBay accounts registered in the United States. Sorry, no forwarding your invite. If you are invited to participate in the eBay Refer a Friend Program, you will receive an email directing you to a page on eBay where you can find a unique URL that you can share with friends who are new to eBay or who are qualified returning customers. You can share your unique URL directly via the social buttons available on the eBay page OR copy and paste the unique URL directly to your friends. From there, your friend must visit eBay using the unique URL you’ve shared, join eBay (unless they are a qualified returning customer) and make his or her first eBay purchase. Once we confirm your friend is a new customer (or a qualified returning customer) and has completed their purchase per our terms and conditions, eBay will issue a $10 voucher to both you and your friend. This voucher may then be used on any future qualified purchase on eBay. You can earn up to a maximum of $100 referring friends to eBay.

    How will I get my referral voucher?
    If you refer a friend who is new to eBay (or a qualified returning customer) and that friend makes a qualified purchase per our terms and conditions, a $10 voucher will be issued to you and you will be notified of this via email ten (10) business days after the purchase. Also, all earned vouchers will be accessible in the checkout flow as soon as they are issued.

    Who qualifies as a new or returning customer?
    Only customers who are new to eBay (i.e. have never had an eBay account) or returning eBay customers making their first purchase in the last 12 months qualify as a new or returning customer.

    How will I find and use my $10 voucher after purchase?
    As indicated above, whenever you qualify for a voucher you will be notified of this via email within ten (10) business days. Also, all earned vouchers will be accessible in the checkout flow as soon as they are issued to you.
