    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 actually shipped and so you will get that commission?

      It should have all that information on Amazon. Go to your account there. It tells you what commission you got and it also tells you how often you will be paid depending on the payment option you selected.

          I've sold quite a bit through my Amazon links and I've never received an email from them to let me know a "transaction worked."

          The only time I get an email from Amazon (associate-related) is to let me know that a payment (to me) was processed.

            Amazon is one of my big sellers too and I never get an email either from them either. Not even a monthly report. I just check my sales everyday. Guess I better check my email settings as well.

    Cool, thanks everyone. I had been looking around amazon for a bit, but I find it somewhat hard to find the information I'm looking for... might be just me then smile

      Click on Earnings Report in the left column and it tells you the commission.

        It says 0. Is that because it is just ordered and not shipped yet?

          Yes, but you should be able to see both orders and earnings.  Once an item is shipped it will show up under earnings.

              I remember my first sale, not to long ago actually, I was so tickled. I probably checked my account every 15 minutes  for 24 hrs. to see how much commission I made, lol.

    i get excited by every sale still too!

    I even jump into google to calculate my commission every time!

    did you know you can use google search as a calculator?

    My most recent sale: (stick into google)

    129.95 x .04 =

      Miekaposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Hmmm, in that case my commission will be 40 cents. It's a nice start smile

      SF, when you said "I even jump into google to calculate my commission every time!" I read it twice to make sure I read it right and thought "what the heck does he mean by that" ....until I read your next sentence! 

      No, I had no idea you could use Google as a calculator like that!  I love to learn new cool stuff like that, thanks!

      That's right. This Google Search is Good. I notice you can also convert Euros to dollar by typing, say: 34.5 euros to $

    Congratulations!
    I've never, ever sold anything over Amazon, and was wondering if anything could ever get sold (through a Hub). Thanks for reassuring me!

    1. sunforged profile image68
      sunforgedposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      If your intention is to sell something on amazon, than your hub should be designed to attract someone who is searching to buy something.

      The attach related items to any topic  gamble is just that...a gamble

    You will see earnings one the product is shipped, I earn a fair amount off amazon daily, it can be done!

    I sold six packets of seeds yesterday, but it showed as zero commission until today when the items were actually shipped. I also know that if the buyer returns the items, they will take the commission back.
    However, I chose to sell seeds for two reasons. One, they are n integral part of what I know most about, and therefore write about, and two, after I sell 7 items in each calendar month I get a higher rate of commission.
    This month is off to an excellent start with the six seed packets (something like 40 cents commission in total) but another seed packet to go, then I get is it 7% commission should someone buy a big item, like a greenhouse?

    I've now sold 2 items on Amazon - the second being a USB hub. Wow, my hub about hubs turns out to be WIN!

    Unfortunately you only get a few cents for selling a USB hub. I've still only sold an average of 1 product a month. I take my hats off to those hubbers who make more than $100 a month on Amazon!

    This is all very comforting to hear as I haven't made an amazon sale yet. I'll post when I do.

    In the meantime, it is also comforting to hear that people do make amazon sales!

    Hang in there seems to be the catch cry!

      Hey, I'm back. I decided to check my Amazon and in the last 2 days I made 2 sales - I've now got $1.07 Yippee!!!

      It does feel good!

    Congrats to everyone with their new Amazon or very first Amazon sales. So exciting!!! I try to write about things that I personally use and tell my reasons why. Kind of like a very long testimonial with specific information that you can't find on Amazon about the products. If my hub is informational only then I put books to sell. I have only 1 hub that's actually based on Amazon products because I love the product and order them frequently. Never do much with Adsense. 1 Question: Since I do order some products from Amazon frequently, can I order off of my own hub??? I never have because it seems like cheating but would be nice if I could, smile.
