Perhaps this has been asked before, but if so, I missed it.
When you have an Amazon earnings posted, is there any way to determine which product/hub was the source?
I don't think there is a way to determine which hub it came from, but if you go to "my account" you will see a navigation bar at the top. Click on "earnings", after that click on the bar below where it says "Amazon Sales report"--- it will bring up a screen showing what products were bought.
On mine, I can see specific things related to particular hubs I have written, but sometimes there are unrelated items sold, which can come from anywhere that someone clicked on a product, and then went on through searching Amazon to buy "whatzits".
Oh, thanks, Rochelle! I'll check that out. Many thanks for that info!
It only says, "2 items shipped." It does not say what the items were. :-( Darn--that would have helped my track down which hub! Oh, well.
Lizzy, You probably were looking at your Amazon Earnings report. You need to look at the Amazon Sales Report to see what items were sold/shipped, as Rochelle explained.
The details on what is sold is on this page:
It currently does not tell you which hub provided that sale.
Ah--ok, thank you very much. I did not see that particular link when I tried to follow Rochelle's directions. I must have misunderstood where to look.
Interesting that the link you provided went right to MY earnings/sales page.
I can now see what sold, (2 items, one in Feb, one just last month), and the items that sold are enough to let me know the hub in question.
Thanks very much!
Good question. I also wonder if an individual Amazon account pays more than the HP Amazon program?
I don't believe you can at this time no, but it would sure be helpful to know which hub.
We have just been given the capability to tell what hub generated the sale, but it will take a bit of time to engineer.
Thanks Paul. That's going to be a very useful feature and I'm looking forward to its implementation. I sometimes see sales of items that I never listed and it would be great to know what hub was behind it. This information can help us determine if there is any relationship between what we list in hubs and what we wrote about. This can help with planning additional hubs.
That is great news. I finally did find the right page, with help from folks on this thread, and was able to determine which hubs had produced the sales by which items were sold.
It is encouraging to see these at last start to work; for ever since I first signed up with the Amazon program (which now is under the Amazon/HP program), I'd not seen a single sale.....and that goes back about, oh, 2 to 3 years.
Lizzy, now that you are familiar with the two reports, go back to your Earnings report and change the settings to Amazon and "All Time" - then check the totals all the way down at the bottom.
If the two columns (Orders and shipments) don't match, try to determine if the missing shipments are from old orders. You only get paid when shipped.
Anyone noticing this problem - See the forum thread at http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/124337
Thanks--I did that check--and no, there are no orders, or shipments, other than the two recent ones I mentioned--both shipped and paid. In all that time, I've only had the 2 that happened in the last month/week. I was on the verge of eliminating the Amazon program as worthless!
Now, I guess I'll keep it running, and see what happens, with tweaks I've been making.
That will be a very helpful capability. Looking forward to that feature as a good source of feedback. Thank you!

I know it can take up to 7 days for an ordered product to be shipped out, and that Amazon does not show ordered product on earnings report until it is shipped out. My estimation is that it has been 7 days since...

I have been keeping a close eye on my Amazon sales and shipments by displaying the Earnings Reports to show Amazon "All Time" and it shows that 10 items never were shipped yet. Seven (7) of those 10...

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...

I stopped filling in the Amazon affiliate registration because it mentioned paying by check? Does anyone actually still do this? Does Amazon?

I just noticed that my earnings report is showing zero straight across the board. Earlier today there were figures in those spots. Anybody else having this issue?
