I was checking my Amazon account and saw I've sold a few pretty big items.
1. $481.99 earned $19.28
2. $277.7 earned $11.11
3. $68.99 earned $11.04 (4 of the same item)
4. $17.35 earned $14.52 (12 of the same item)
I've sold over $5000 worth of product this month so far, of course my earnings equals much less.
The highest Amazon revenue that I got for one item was around $155 - sadly that doesn't happen very often!
I've got a couple of items that sell pretty regularly in the $1,000 range.
Wow... I wish... I was thinking my $400 product was good. Ha
Sunforged, I think it all depends on how the product is classified. Sometimes you can find electronics in other categories other than electronics, which is where you can earn more than the 4%.
Nice! I sold a camera the other day for around $400 - my highest (one item) sale so far. I was quite disappointed, however, when I realized that you only get 4% for electronics!
Select "Performance" as your payment structure and you will receive between 4% and 8.5% commissions depending on how many referrals(sales) you get from Amazon.
I sell, on average, 6 cameras a month. Some at the beginning only get the 4% commission but then the rate goes up. The cool thing is, I don't have to sell 6 cameras to get out of the 4% range I can sell 6 gumballs and I move up.
Since we're sharing My highest sold item was a $3500 generator and I think I was at a 6% commission rate.
My biggest selling item to date was that greenhouse back in January. As it was the only thing I sold I only got 4% commission, but sales are steadily creeping up and I have just passed the $100 payout threshold. Not great seeing that includes the $55 for that greenhouse! But hey its going in the right direction at last!
I'm just not in your class yet, hubbers. I made my first Amazon sale last month, netting 20 cents. This month, though, I've already sold about $250 worth, for $10 net, so it's going up.
Y'all better keep moving; the wilderness is slowly encroaching on civilization!
I just joined hubpages and I'm not sure how to check my earnings from amazon. Do I look on my amazon account page?
I do have a flow of amazon sells from other sources and yes, it's great to get those big ticket items. Congrats on your success!
Electronics are supposed to be 4% but if you find electronics items from 3rd parties they can be often categorized elsewhere and will not be subject to the 4% cap.
Ive sold numerous $300PS3's that appeared in the games category for 7%
If its an electronic and they called it a plant its still teh same product and it no longer gets capped
I think Ryan pointed this out once - It happens to me by accident.
That makes sense, but there's a lot of luck involved, no?
you could intentionally look for alternative categorized products
I do not - if you have a successful electronics hub, the potential +4% commission may be worth your time
It is possible to look for electronics in other categories, and THEN write a hub about them
Yes Sunforged it was me that pointed that out. I discovered this early on in my time on Hubpages and now make sure that I have a look for each product in other categories.
Generally non-specialist items such as headphones, cables, the occassional MP3 player etc, are listed in multiple categories. Only one of them categories can be electronics of course
I have even found an Amazon.com in the wrong category before, obviously an input error...
Very true. I did once sell something that was in a different category than electronics and sold 3 at once at $250ish a pop, getting my regular commission which was 6.5% that month. That was pretty cool. That reminds me that I need to write a hub on that product!
I have some regular 350-400 dollar ones. I sold some camera equipment today (total luck, I certainly don't market camera ANYTHING) and that was a nice haul.
I have sold a product that earned me over $100 before, my most last month earned me $60.
I've been getting on average one one hundred dollar day a month lately, selling products in the 2,500 - 3,000 range. I think my best was something like $129 commission.
This month is going to be the best yet, especially if I make to the 7% threshold!
My biggest commission was around $45. That's rare for me as I don't target products over $50ish. I usually sell one or two $25 commissions a month, between kindles or mini-laptops. Other than that, my commissions are small but I have good volume.
My biggest Amazon commission has been $19.50 for an Xbox, although the purchaser also invested in a few games and a second controller, as well as some neat gadget on pre-order for $100 which as things stand... is still on pre-order. Total commissions from that little spree were around $36. I got $9.83 for a used slot machine when I was still only reaching the 6% tier.
As things stand, the Xbox 360 has been my only 'big ticket' item, and I wouldn't really call that 'big ticket' more 'medium ticket'. That said, I don't really attempt to shift big ticket. If I can sell enough small tag stuff to reach 8% in the future then I may well attempt to sell some bigger items to capitalise on the good commissions. For now I am concentrating on reaching those upper tiers, and big ticket items aren't going to help too much towards that.
I have items which make me $0.00 commissions, and I love them, they all count towards pushing me up a tier.

My first commission was a whopping .28 cents. Someone clicked on one of my links, and then bought a part for a Braun electric shaver. The link came on a website that was completely unrelated to the item...

Somebody watched a movie on demand via one of my capsules, and Amazon gives you 10% for that! I wouldn't really know how to get more people to watch movies, other than movie reviews, but that is still pretty sweet...
