Second Amazon Return (ouch)

    Well after yesterday getting the rather gutting news of my first Amazon return, today I got the second!  From the same transaction, so the buyer returned both the goods.  My two biggest sales by a distance as well.  So with the return of those two items, it has wiped out 80% of the money I've made on Amazon!  Ouch!!

      Sorry to hear that. I had a bunch of returns right after Christmas, so I feel your pain. hmm

    Unfortunately this is the usual risk that you have to deal with. If you promote any product or service as an affiliate, then churnrates of 80% are pretty usual.

    Sorry to hear this, Andy.  I know how you feel as I had a couple of returns too and it took a big chunk out of my Amazon earnings.  BUT keep your hopes up.. one of my returns bought another one of a different brand!  So that could happen to you too.

      Well I did actually make 4 sales yesterday, all from the same buyer.  Admittedly they didn't spend any where near as much as what the two returns cost, but it was nice to sell something and it cheered me up.
