    Ok so I'm excited because I just logged into my amazon associates account and I've gotten my first ordered item!

    The item was expensive

    For example, let's say it's $1000

    Does that mean once it ships i'll get paid 4% ($40)?

    My current earnings are currently $0 but i'm assuming thats because
    it hasn't shipped?

    Do you get 4% of the list price, or 4% of whatever profit they make?

    Am I ever actually going to get paid for this order?

    THANK YOU

    In a nutshell, you got it right. There are difference in percentages depending on the type of item it is. And when you sell over a certain amount the percentages can go up a few percent.

      You better!

      The order was a big one and I have the potential to make 25 times  what i've made on adsense in all this time if it goes through smile

    Hi Allan

    Congratulations! Don't quote me, but in answer to your questions - A. You recieve 4% of the list price. B. You will get paid by Amazon when your affiliate revenues reach $100. By the way, I don't remember how many items you have to sell before you can earn 6%, but it isn't very many.

    I received an order too on Amazon this week and my commission for the order is underneath it. I am so thrilled.

    Congratulations!

    Selling an item worth so much is impressive, I tend to aim for cheaper items, and selling a lot of them tongue

    Congratulations!
    I also sold one expensive item through Amazon (for well over $1000)! But that was a month ago and I have sold zilch since then.

    Allan, it can sometimes take awhile for an item to ship, I had a few orders that took almost 2 weeks to ship. It was kinda frustrating but in the end it shipped and turned up in my earnings smile
    I have yet to have a returned item or an ordered item canceled but I know that is the worry with bigger ticket items hmm

    Keep Amazon on your Hubs when you can - I do very well with them and it pays off. It may not seem like much at first for you. But it will pick up and bring you some spending money in the end.
