      There are two possibilities: 1. She bought it during HubPages' share of the time
      2.The report hasn't updated yet, depending on when she bought it.

        What do you mean she bought it during Hubpages share?

          You share your revenue with HubPages. They get 40% and you get 60%. They don't do this by taking the total earnings and taking a percentage.   How they do it is putting their codes on your hubs 40% of the time and yours 60% of the time.  If someone buys during their time, you don't get any of the revenue. If someone buys during your time, you get 100% of it. 

          This means that the share isn't exactly 40/60, but hopefully over time, it evens out.

            Wow, I didn't know that was how it worked.  I thought it was of each item.  Seems like it would be more fair if they took a cut from each item.  Are you sure that is how it works?

              Yup, that IS how HubPages works.
              It can be fair sometimes and it can cruel sometimes. An example of it being cruel is this, and an example of being fair is when you have a big sale and you get to keep all 15% of it without having to share it with HubPages. smile

                Yeah..really suck because someone bought a book and I got a whole .20 cents from that but the earbuds were $40.00 bucks..would have amounted to much more.  Hmm, thanks for the info.

      My understanding is that there was some kind of glitch at Amazon's end, myself and others (from a different forum, different site) said their earnings weren't showing up, though orders were listed in the report in our Amazon Associates accounts. I think it's getting ironed out.

      Edit: Actually there is a thread about the Amazon issue here at HP too, over here: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/124126
