I wanted to hear from some of the more experienced hubbers and see if the amazon and ebay affiliate programs make very much for them? I assume that they end up being very little of your overall earnings, but I wondered if they are worthwhile. Thanks!
I'm with Inspirepub. Amazon pays 4% until you make more sales and they increase it to 6% and so on based upon the amount of sales you make.
It takes a lot of sales to reach the $100 payout figure.
Ebay is mainly for a targeted audience, perhaps adwords but I do not believe it is conducive to what we do here with hubpages.
I think I have made a grand total of $4 so far with eBay and Amazon combined, but I don't make a huge effort to draw attention to those capsules and encourage people to click on them.
I use those capsules for decoration, basically, to break up slabs of text. They work really well for that purpose ...
I have had 5 Amazon sales tottaling 28 dollars..Ebay has not been helpful to me so i have boycotted them, and like Darkside says, it makes the Hubs more pretty and more profesional looking:)
I know some hubbers, who do have better succes with Amazon and Ebay than AdSense earnings!
I made close to $50 with ebay last month
I make between $10 and $20 with amazon on an average.
Konterra is looking really good right now.
Basically I am not going to get rich off of the affilliates but they do add up for me. Hope this helps.
I do ok. My ebay last month was a little over $70 with 1 ACRU (signup), and amazon was a little over $50. My average amazon payout is usually $40-$55 a month, and ebay since their move to EPN about $30 and up. With commission junction, my ebay revenue was about $75-$100 a month, mostly in ACRUs.
Terry, amazon will pay at $25 minimum, I believe. It's that or $20, I forget. There's really not that much wait.
You can make money using both, or either program, but it all depends on the products that you choose (when picking amazon ASINs) and the topics; like if you're featuring big screen HDTVs, you'll get fewer sales, on average, than if you were featuring headsets, books, DVDs, toys, etc.
Hi Whitney. I have a question and find you to be the right person to answer. I used to place those e-bay and amazon capsules on my Hubs. But I find that I am doing excellent with adsense only. Till now I have made only $ 0.87 from e-bay and $0.0 from Amazon. Now I have stopped putting them on my hubs. Can you plz advice me if I should place them on my hubs or will they be useful in the long run.
Thanks & Best Regards!
My main income is ad sense. I barely got clicks on Amazon and eBay affiliate ads. I am starting to do research with them though, I think I'm just not using them well and effectively. Just try different things, my whole wealth isn't much and most of my things don't have a single click. I'm going to be implementing Kontera on some if not all of my Hubs and research that. Anyway because of this lack of even a ponder on the affiliates I am aiming at ad sense as the main maker .
I make a little bit of money with my Amazon Affiliate links. Since starting I have only made about $10. My best source seems to be my max and ruby page. Good luck.
Most of my Ebay income comes from my own sites, but for the month of June my Hubs earned $190 from the Ebay capsules. I think I earned about $5 on Amazon, if that.
I think Ebay works very well on Hubpages, but I don't just use the capsules to make my hubs look pretty. I use the text to make the capsules look pretty LOL
Exactly! If you write a hub about the products you're promoting via Ebay and Amazon, and make the ads specific to that product, you make better sales. It takes time to do that, of course, but it pays better.
I earn a bit of money from Amazon and eBay here and at other sites. It all depends on what your hub is about as to how successful the Amazon and eBay listings will be. Some hubs lend themselves to selling products, others do not.
I'm trying to make my own page here,but i can't;(( somebody help me)))
I've made about $30 on EBay in 4 months, nothing on Amazon. I'm getting better at putting more relevant products on my hubs and I think that's helping my EBay.
They are a waste of time if you place them incorrectly. You must be attracting traffic that is interested in buying something and then have something to say that is worth reading. I make $200+ in Amazon sales a month from one hub page.
Thanks for all the replies! It's great getting this feedback!
Hi. I am new to the Amazon Revenue. I when to my report page and I notice that I have three clicks but zero cents. How exactly I can get money out of the ads? Thanks in advance.
You get nothing unless the person who came from your hub actually buys something - that's why the revenue is so patchy. I try to use ebay rather than amazon -the cookie lasts a month rather than 24 hours - and amazon will only pay in checks or gift vouchers which are both pretty useless if you are not in the US
Ah but, Relache, you're a legend!
Us mere mortals don't do so well. To earn money with eBay and Amazon, you need to write Hubs where you can feature highly relevant products. For instance, write a review of a product and then have that product in your eBay capsule.
I earn very little on my revenue capsules at HubPages, though I'm happy with my Adsense earnings. 'I'm doing much better with eBay on my belly dance blog.
But Marisa, the only strategy I use is what you have said above (highlighted in bold). How does that make me a legend and everyone else mere mortals?
The only thing I'd add to that theory is that you need to write what you really know, not what you think people want to know.
I am agreed with you.
Hubpages are for knowledge exchange. I have written some articles about jewellery and those have started enhancing my customer base in real business of gem and jewellery.
