I don't understand what is happening here. My Amazon sales were doing okay and they shouldn't have stopped dead because the product has nothing to do with the Christmas or holiday season.
Is anyone else experiencing this?
Yes, Anamika complained about something similar. Btw is your traffic to those hubs the same or has it decreased as well?
My traffic has dropped from between 2000 and 5000 per day to about 1500 per day. However, that means the number of sales should have dropped, not stopped dead completely.
I'm not a big Amazon seller but I do use eBay on all my websites and I've noticed a big drop in sales this month, even though my traffic hasn't dropped significantly.
My products aren't Christmas-related either, however I think it probably is a seasonal thing. People don't have much money left after Christmas, so they're still "window shopping" online, but being more choosy about what they buy.
I don't know if it was a system thing, but yesterday's report (or rather, the traffic from two days ago) was abnormally low for my amazon account. It is back up but it was a nonstandard drop that made me worried until I saw it was more normalized this morning.
I'm actually beginning to get a few clicks on Amazon. I got 10 clicks this week but no purchase. Is this normal for beginners??
I have been noticing this for about ten days. A few days ago I read that HubPages had taken over our Amazon accounts, and that we would be paid by Hubpages for future Amazon sales, and not by Amazon. In other words, HubPages would now be taking part of our Amazon sales. Does anyone know if this is correct? I only ask because my Amazon sales have come to a dead stop. Or is this just another ugly rumor?
Hi Sophia, they didn't started it yet. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/88045?p … ost1939028
I checked my amazon sales and I have 34 orders so far, it stalled for five days and then I had three yesterday.
Well, maybe I just need a lot more traffic to make sales... Thanks
January isn't typically a big Amazon month. As Marisa mentioned, after the holidays, buyers are low on funds, hitting sales and paying off/down credit cards from holiday expenditures.
It should pick up for Valentines Day and into the spring.
I just checked mine, I've only sold 6 items.
Um, not to worry. They've started again. I seem to have made seven sales overnight! Back to normal!
That's what I'm seeing as well - some multi-item purchases that, if they continue, will raise Jan. Amazon well above Dec. numbers.
However, I'm also seeing far more single item sales that I expected after Xmas. Even deducting the two days selling 10+ items, it is still considerably higher than I expected this month.
I had expected to see day after day with no sales, but so far only have 3 days of 0 sales and a month to date of 58. Considering that Dec only had 92 that's incredible.
Wilderness that is very interesting. Ad wise, both Adsense and HP Ads are higher than they were in December, which is unusual (I'm not complaining). Do you think a large percentage of people have waited for January sales before buying Christmas gifts???
That is possible, and I've also considered that people receiving money from Xmas would spend it in January.
I didn't see any Jan sales last year, although Dec was good - this year is a total turnaround in January. My traffic has increased slightly instead of going way down as it did last year. The items I've sold aren't going to some teen that got a check from Grandma - It's mostly truckloads of tools and some toys for pre-schoolers.
Bottom line - I have absolutely no idea of what is happening or why. Dec. was the best earnings month I've ever seen and January appears like it will blow Dec out of the water even with the lower CPM that many are reporting.
Not complaining though, just sitting back and riding the wave - a big smile on my face.
I have negative money in my Amazon account this month, because somebody returned a big item they bought last month! Have only made four sales so far this month.

I've only made one sale ever from Amazon and that was in February. I have a dozen or so product Hubs and some have generated very good traffic - and I've made money on them through Adsense. But I'm zero via Amazon. I...

Just a report of a possible glitch in the new program. I signed up, I think, on the 16th of the month, and the 17th shows two shipments. The 18th also shows a shipment, so the system is working.The 18th also...

I don't make very much from Amazon, I'm considering taking it off...any advice?

I think it would be so good if we can add the zazzle products to our hubs via Zazzle Capsule just like We do it for Amazon. It will help us improve traffic and of course earnings.
