Unfortunately, I do not think that you can, at least I am not aware of a way to do so.  These are a revenue source for eBay.  I agree that they are distracting.

I recently saw some links after I purchased an item.  I thought they would be links to another ebay seller, but was surprised to see that they were to outside companies instead.  I checked the prices, and for the most part, deduced that the prices on ebay for this one item were either cheaper for the item or cheaper when shipping/handling charges were added.

 

 

OP, Just because the links are there doesn't necessarily mean that the buyer is looking at them, or if they looked that they're buying from them.

 

 

Ebay makes money off of letting other companies advertise on their site.  Other than emailing and complaining directly to ebay, there's really nothing you can do other than to just learn to accept that the ads are there and move on.
