I decided to remove all my Amazon capsules and cash in what I've made so far with their program ($30 or so). Their minimum for a gift certificate exchange is $10, however I've applied for this in the settings and I've been waiting a few weeks now with still no word from them. Does anyone know how long it takes them to issue gift certificates for affiliate earnings, and whether you receive them by e-mail directly or not? The payment history page isn't really helpful.
I'm sorry to say I don't know, but might I ask why you are removing them ?
My Adsense earnings have totally eclipsed anything I make from Amazon. On average, every time I get a sale on Amazon I earn 20-30 cents, every time I get a visit to a Google ad I earn $1+. It's pretty ridiculous in my opinion. If someone buys a hard cover book you should be making more than if someone visits a website, but that's Amazon for you. I reckon the capsules also just get in the way of displaying Google ads more clearly.
Wow, and I am totally the opposite. My HP amazon earnings are way better than my adsense earnings. Methinks I could learn a thing or two from you...
ahh I see I see. $1 per click not bad at all. I've been pretty lucky to be getting 20-50 cents per click.
I still earn a ton more from adsense on things other than hubpages though, I am sure that will change soon though...only getting 250-400 impressions a day from hubpages but hey thats after 1 month.
anyways sorry to stray away from your question.
I got a gift certificate notificaton from them by email-- for about $14 or so--but being new, I thought it was some kind of phony scam and I did something which accidentally invalidated it. I will be more careful, next time.
I think July's earnings come out in September. Amazon has a link on their site about when earnings come out. There's definitely a lag.
Thanks word scribe, do you know if they come out at the beginning or end of September?

I seem to have come to HP just before all the changes. I have put in almost F/T hours on the days I write my hubs. I've read whole books, not only the ones I review, but for material for my hubs. I think what I write is...

I have deleted my adsense account myself. And was just wondering if I can still earn money on hubpages with my amazon. Thanks

I'm trying to sign up for the earnings programs and can't because I don't have a Google AdSense account. I applied for one a few days ago but was rejected due to "insufficient content". (My account...

Just wondering. I think I'm close to hitting $10 in Amazon (keeping my fingers crossed on this one). But since I'm not in the U. S., I chose to get an Amazon gift certificate instead (the check takes too long due to the...
