Edit - Answers to some questions.
I believe that most US/Canadian eBay users count as "eligible merchants", but NOT foreign ones. I bought the cheapest item on eBay last time around to get the one item out of the way. Unfortunately, I didn't notice that he was in HK. My second ($300) purchase was the one to trigger the promo. Grrr.
If you think they strictly enforce the "must follow email or click through banner on our side" rule (I'm pretty sure they don't), you can find the banner on the main page www.paypal.ca .
Last time around, the promo ran from Aug9-Sept13 and I got rebates from Paypal starting on Aug29, with the last rebate on Oct19. Just to give an idea of how long it will take for those that haven't done this before.

The first payment was made on November 28th (though the notification email came on the 30th). This payment should include all purchases you made (aside from the first purchase) from November 13th to November 25th. No cashback was given for purchases made on the 26th or later.
The second payment was made on December 29th (with confirmation email sent on the 31st). This payment covered my rebates from Nov26 thru Dec9 (my last transaction) and likely covered purchases made on Dec10 - the last day of the promo.
I can also confirm that purchasing items using money already in my Paypal account did not affect eligibility for the 5% rebate (i.e. it's ok to do!), I know this had been asked before.
