just a bit under 100 or so for me ...but I am not complaining. Amazon has been good to me this month! Few days left and your never know.. I just may get to that next notch! All in all ,my numbers are all up and I am hitting my targets!
Thanks! I really need to do more product hubs that get traffic. I just am totally amazed since last year this time I had only just made my first sale and it took ages to see any regularity in those sales, this year I have had lots of fun. What will next year be like? (probably even better!)
I've also had an exceptional month, reaching 7.50% a few days ago, but I'm nowhere near the 8% rate, even with the 75 outstanding items still to ship. A lot of them were from the start of the month and I think they must have been cancelled
It is possible but I have had items stay in my ordered area for almost a month before being shipped. They may not be returned and just be taking forever to ship for some reason It has happened to me so maybe you will get lucky too
I took a random look at six of your hubs and didn't find any Amazon capsules. I'm guessing that might be possible reason
Seriously, you need to write actual product hubs, about products you're interested in (even passionate about) and have some knowledge of, aimed at people who are actually looking to buy whatever-it-is online.
Honestly, I don't understand all this Amazon stuff and I guess I had better look into it, because although I should be in the second tier based on numbers, I see only 4% on most things. I know part of it is that Electronics are capped at 4%, but (for example) I usually sell at least 8-10 books every month and only get 4%.
I bet somewhere along the line there was some email from them I should have paid closer attention to
You are in for a real landslide in earnings here! Any big ticket item really does want to be able to earn a higher % and if you are already bringing in good sales you should find your earnings are way more!
Sucks you lost out before but at least now you will get better commissions in the future
Oh, wait: you can pick up spilt money. And since It is not yet the end of the month, by converting now, I magically change $32.66 into some larger figure. Not tremendously larger, of course, but definitely larger. And all I had to do was click a button!
Because I had been in the program for 10 or so years I never realised until a few months ago that I too was on the flat rate fee. My wife was on the newer payment model and one day when checking her stats and seeing that she was X away from going up to the X% I realised that I had never had that on my account.
When I changed it it actually retroactively bumped up my current month. The difference was impressive yet also tinged with sadness as I kicked myself over all that revenue I left sitting on the table for the previous... well however long the newer system had been in.
I have 23 orders, with 20 shipped, so that means I'm on the 2nd tier, which is my best so far.
By the way DS, I've used my first $20 or so commission / gift card to buy an Amazon gift for my niece in the US. Guess I should have thought of doing what you're going to do but I'll keep this in mind next time I want to buy another gift from Amazon .
Hi ds, this is a good post, nice way to help others, am too way far to the next tier so a ten or even a hundred will not help me anymore. I reached 7.5 for the first time last week and am really thankful for that. I learned a lot from many people here, you are one of them. Thanks and Happy New year!
I haven't looked at the details, but given how few laptops I've ever sold, I think I am far better off this way.
Until becoming active here, 99% of my sales have been books. I'll get at least a 2% bump on those. I doubt that cap will affect me - you need something worth moe than $600 and an awful lot of stuff is under that.
I'm 243 items short of 8%...don't think I'll get there! This is the first time I made it to 7.5, so I'm pleased. My husband is shaking his head, can't believe how well I did...didn't really tell him much about my hubbing until a couple of months ago, when I started to get payouts over $100. Between November and December, my combined earnings for Amazon have exceeded $1000...not bad for a stay-at-home mom's side income!
Me too! Darkside, you are so cool! Stats literally just updated! I also think this might just push me to a payout as well, I was sooooo close before! I don't even care if I have to wait till the end of next month since I think I just missed this payday, oh well. It will hopefully be a nice little check when it comes
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...
We're excited to officially launch the HubPages Amazon Program, a new way for you to earn from Amazon products on your Hubs! The Amazon Program offers a very high Amazon commission tier because the volume of sales...
I just checked my Amazon account and noticed i have made a sale. Though not much, it's just $3.89 as commission. And guess what, it came from the hub i least expect would give me any sales.So happy to be saying...
OK, so I'm looking for any and all tips you more experienced hubbers might have for converting Amazon clicks to Amazon sales. I must be getting the hang of using the capsules... I'm still small time, but my clicks...
I sold over $500 through my hubs yesterday (my commission is a LOT less, obviously). By far, it was my best day with eleven items sold. I usually sell two items per week on average, so this was a pleasant...
