    Hey all,

    This is the biggest single item commission on Amazon I have managed so far. Almost $200. I hope he likes it... lol

      I'm glad the whole internet money-making thing is working for you, because you'd never make it as a secretary.  Your highlighter work leaves something to be desired.  wink

      No, in all seriousness, that's AMAZING!  Congrats!

      Niiiiiiiiice!  I need to find some big ticket items to feature.  Most of my product hubs are for average priced stuff.  This was a good Amazon month for me - 34 items sold so far and decent commission, better than tha last couple of months.

      Mark - I'll be your secretary, how much do you pay??  wink

        Really? Can I sell 60000 of these next month - or do I have to sign up? sad

          No, you just need to give 10% of that Amazon commission - and 10% of all other commissions - to your chosen religious corporation. Didn't you know that it is all about 'giving'? In return you get hope, lots of hopeless hope.

          Why not? This might be your month to harvest handsomely from the good seeds that you've planted. You do not have to sign for anything. God is very fair to everybody.

            So you are seriously stating that Mark Knowles could sell $150,000,000 worth of watches next month if he found god?

            Where do I sign up?

            1. Mark Knowles profile image61
              Mark Knowlesposted 6 years ago in reply to this

              I will give 20% for that.

              But - no - he is taking the piss. big_smile

                ngurecoposted 6 years ago in reply to this

                Where are you getting 20% from? Tithing is only 10% off your gross profit. This will translate to only a few dollars and in return you will make far much more..

                And on a serious note, congratulation for the big sale that you have made.

    Wow.  Congrats.  I am pleased to be steadily increasing my Amazon commission rates--up to 6.5% so far.  But I am working on getting to 8%.  smile

    1. Mark Knowles profile image61
      Mark Knowlesposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I had a cunning plan to sell lots of cheap items that sell well - then when I sell the odd big ticket - I get a higher commission. Not managed to get to 8.25% yet - that is a big hurdle.

    Congrats! Do you mind if I ask what the item was?

    I've sold a few laptops, but you only get $25 for them I think.

    You've definitely gotten a great sale with that one. I've always focused on more lower priced items, thinking more people are like me wanting to get the best product for less buck, but dang I wish I had some crazy $200 revenue coming in from one item.

          Drop me a line - I can set up a channel for you to use and pass on the dough. They pay in US Dollars two months in arrears by cheque that takes a month to clear. lol

            Not many these days darkside, I have a good library and so do my kids, but apart from reading online, I usually use my excellent local council library if I want a book. smile
            My kids also buy books for me from time to time.

            I would prefer money from Amazon. smile

      That does sound stupid. wink

      Seriously - you are more likely to sell something off a 2 year old page than a new one. I am constantly updating my plastic crap pages as the models change.

      Sure ya did,

      Same as I sent you some nasty emails when I was banned for 'splainin' what I thought of your ethical standards. lol

      897 young believers converted - what is your score? You must be doing pretty good with them uneducated rural kids in South America.

        you don't remember the whole "I'm not the only one who dislikes you"- message? I'm not surprised, you have a lot of insipid things to say.

        Anyway- Costa Rica is still considered "Central America" by all standards except those who don't own a map... or a globe, live in the US or who are just narrow minded. I'm sure you fit one of these four.

        CR Literacy rate 98%, which makes "US"(emphasis on us) a third world country in that respect. So, yes- educating bright young minds about God- the creator of everything in a tropical paradise is going quite well- I wouldn't trade the corner of my property where the dog craps for a single plot in the beloved CA.


        P.S. I'll send the tv back soon. haha

          No - never instigated a message to you - ever. I thought lying was a sin? No? Bet that is top of the list to teach the "bright young minds." Sadly - eventually they will learn the truth. "Lying about unbelievers is OK with Jeebus." lol

          Narrow minded? Dear me. You mean running away from your birth country when the rate of people not believing in god got too much? Sure. See you when you need some urgent medical attention. lol

          Sorry - thought you had gone to Argentina.

            but yes- CA will be one of the first places God rains brimstone I am sure.

      ryankettposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Messing around with the small stuff is precisely what you need to do, did you not notice the 8%? That effectively means that Mark doubled up on the first tier of Amazon commissions by doing precisely that.

      Nope.  If prayer can move mountains and cause amputees to grow back limbs, it can certainly help you sell watches.

      Oh, darn, it can't move mountains or grow back limbs.  Well, surely it can help with the watches just the same.
