Someone just ordered a snowman sweater via one of my hubs lol
not big money but its started my Amazon career, until now all my money was coming from Adsense, until I started writing more product hubs recently.
$19.00, thats about £10.. Anyone know how much you need to earn on Amazon to receive payment?
You should earn at least $100 to get a payment but I think you can easily pass this level if you regularly write product reviews.
p.s. : I forgot to say that this is for payment by check. If you have a bank account in US, it is just $10
wow congrats man...well if you are in usa $10 can be payout in you opt for bank transfer...otherwise $100 is the threshold for payout...
It's $100 Richie, and they pay by cheque. You'll find that UK banks take a whack off the total in fees for cashing a dollar cheque, but its a fixed fee no matter the size of the cheque, so it might be worth raising your pay out level so that you only get hit with the one fee. I've followed RyanKett's advice to wait until I have $1000 before getting payout. I doubt very much if I'll get there this year, but when do it'll be worth waiting for. I grudge giving rich bankers any more of my hard earned cash than I can help.
Agree with you Izzy, but I have set mine at $500 as I'm not patient enought to wait for $1,000. Only about $30 to go now!!!!
Izzy and Richard - I banked my last check at Barclays and they charge a % instead of a one off after a particular level is hit - cost me about £10 to bank a check of about $450.
Going to try Lloyds this month. Staff at Barclays were kind but clueless - I live in a very small town and not all the residents had heard of this magical 'Amercia' place, let alone their magical 'dollars' currency
Let us know how you get on - Lloyds TSB is my bank, and I've been wondering what's going to happen when I wave a $150 cheque under their noses (which should be some time in January/February 2011 with any luck).
I too live in a small town where people's geographical knowledge is similarly limited
Congratulations! Amazon Uk usually pays out after you reach 75 GBP...hoping you get a cheque soon then!
Congratulations on your first sale. I have found that it can really be a snow ball affect with Amazon. And since it is the beginning of the month, you can hopefully get some more sales to help your payout to be bigger.
Cool, I really need to get on product hubs, I just don't really know what to do.
Congrats on your first sale. Before you know it you'll hit pay out. Since I'm not in the US, I opted to receive gift certificates and pay out for this one is $10.
Congratulations! I hope to follow in your footsteps one of these days.
It was hilarious Empress. They were franticly tapping on computers and calculators and looking at booklets, and in the end I just told them to bank it and I would work out what it had cost me later . Expecting to have to do the same thing at Lloyds. Will let you know - banking it tomorrow.

Hip Hip Hooray. I received an Amazon payout that I never expected. I thought you needed a hundred dollars just like Adsense. I logged into my bank account that I only use for my direct deposits. Lo and behold, there was...

I'm stoked because I just realized I passed the payout minimimum - I've almost been here a year and have learned so much (with much more to go). Thanks Hubpages for all the education, and being an outlet for my...

Yep it makes me happy every month. Is anyone getting an adsense payout for the first time? Tell us and we'll celebrate with you! Did you make your second payment in less time than your first? We'd love to hear about it....

I'm so excited! My Adsense has finally reached $100 after two years! Yey! I better write more hubs if I want my next payout in less than two years, huh? Hehe!

It took three months, I guess that's not bad! Now if I could just meet that threshold every month I'd be thrilled.Today's my wedding anniversary, so this is a nice "gift"!

I've been a member for two years but wrote the majority of my hubs over the last two months after I finally got motivated to do so. $100 is not very much to be honest but it just goes to show that making money online is...
