The purpose of inserting eBay auctions in a web site is to generate an income through the eBay Partner Network (EPN). Affiliates of EPN get paid for each click made on the auctions ads that get displayed on their sites.
phpBay allows you to insert ads based on any keyword or eBay search word. It then displays auctions based on the administration settings that were previously setup. It’s little brother phpBay Lite is a version of the phpBay Pro WordPress plugin that has limited capabilities but offers similar functionality.
