I feel we need more detailed reports on orders.
I had 4 orders last week that have not been shipped yet - this could be because they were cancelled or because they are pre-orders. Without seeing the details of the order I have no idea what happened to the order.
I, too, would like to see orders when they are placed if it is possible. Instead we see orders when they are shipped (the actual item) in the "Amazon Sales Report" section. If they just showed up there when placed, with a zero earnings until shipped, it would be helpful.
One of the differences between the HubPages Amazon program and using the older plain Amazon affiliate program is that the reports we see from Amazon for the former lack many details.
Part of this is also that Amazon has a 60 day processing window and can make a refund or debit weeks after a sale if something is returned for example.
But it was always was that way. Amazon could always "take away" a commission weeks after shipping it; that's why they didn't pay for 60+ days.
What we're (or at least I) am asking for, if possible, is that the order shown in My Earnings Reports Amazon be shown in My Earnings Amazon as well. When the purchase is made, in other words, it shows up with a description of what was bought whether it has shipped or not. When it has shipped, add the commission amount.

Is it just me, or did anyone else's Amazon reports not update for yesterday? My summary has been updated, but my Earnings and Orders reports are showing no activity.

It was directly related to one of my hubs, and I'm sooo happy right now. It was only a rather cheap dvd though, so the commission is probably not too high.And how long does it take before you will know if an order is...
