BUT on both screens, there is no indication of cashback available, and it seems that there SHOULD be. any help here?

Registering and searching involve

two different sites. Apparently you've registered okay. Now go here:
www.live.com

In the search box enter a brand name, i.e., Sanyo. Screen will switch to a list of sites offering Sanyo, the top most of which will be eBay. If Microsoft has turned on Cashback, a gold coin icon will appear next to the listing. Click it. You're now on eBay with

Sanyo in the search box. Erase Sanyo and type in whatever you want. A small green Cashback is Active banner will appear on every eBay page and on the PayPal page when you go to pay.

Does anyone know how a partial refund on an ebay item affects the cashback?

It's amazing how spoiled we've become when 15% off sucks. Hoping it goes back up soon.

Can't this thing be abused with friends selling items to one another ? Apart from the money they are giving, they must be spending a ton to monitor the transactions, I don't know how this is working out for them ...

Is this some kind of nutty reverse psychology when everyone else is increasing the discounts?

Maybe I'm wrong but didn't the fees for BIN auctions take a huge spike recently. On a high dollar BIN you are going to pay atleast 10% in seller fees so with only a 15% Live Discount it is pretty hard to game the system.

I'm sure Ebay is subsidizing some of this as well to incentivize use of BIN instead of traditional auction.

I think MSFT is funding it, but the fees are much less if you do an auction with BIN rather than a fixed-price sale.

I've wondered about that. So if you list something in an auction-style format but include a BIN option, in the end the final value fee (if someone does the BIN) will be less than if you had simply listed the item as BIN-only?
