In an effort to boost its search game, Microsoft recently announced its Live Search Cashback program which rewards those who make purchases as a result of Live Search ads with cash rebates. Now, eBay is part of the program, but in a more streamlined way.
When searching for a product, you'll now see a cashback gleam next to eBay paid search ads. You'll be able to get cashback on "Buy It Now" products directly through eBay instead of going through the cashback site.
Live Search says that doing cashback this way requires some coding with partner merchants, but it hopes to offer more advertisers like this in the future.
What do you think of this new cashback offering? Has cashback changed the way you search? Share your experience in the comments.
