Has anyone had any Amazon sales in the last few days? I know figures aren't finalized, but I just wanted to see what others are experiencing. Thanks for your input.
Thanks jan, I was just curious to see if there was possibly a bug with reporting, or if it's perhaps delayed.
Hi Jodah, some types of articles seem to lend themselves better to affiliate sales than others. Thanks for responding.
I used to get money from eBay clicks, but I took out the remainder of my eBay affiliate links when they switched to a different module. Do you feature "Buy Now" products?
I didn't know. It's been awhile since I've tried to promote an eBay product.
I have sales listed for the 21st and 22nd. I average around $50.00 a month from Amazon now that we can take advantage of the 8.5% commission.
HI Solares, that's really good. Thank you so much for the feedback. My activity has been much lower than normal this week.
Hi Sherry, thanks so much. I didn't know if this was a site-wide bug, or if I'm just not selling anything this week.
I don't think I've ever had any Amazon sales. I'm rarely bother to put any Amazon capsules anymore.
Besides..HP is sending mixed messages on the matter. On the one hand, the capability is there to add those capsules; on the other, there is some penalty for using them, for certain kinds of selection criteria.
:: throwing hands up in the air in confusion. ::
I limit it to 2 per article unless its a list of the best goodies - then a link every two goodies.
I get sales for things I suggest, but also weird stuff they decide to buy when over on Amazon that has nothing to do with my post. That's great - I'll take a pair of hiking boots and a lamp sale.
Some articles definitely lend themselves more to Amazon sales. A couple of my hubs have consistent sales. I think that's because HP does well with search engine traffic, compared to some others.
I have never deliberately written a hub to generate Amazon sales, but by luck, star alignment or some other cosmic force, one of my highest traffic hubs generates pretty good Amazon sale revenue.
Often, it outperforms my other revenue-- especially since I attached it to my HP earnings.
Just to give you a hint: I used to always put an Amazon capsule pointing to a book about the subject I was writing about. I got a few pennies from this, which is fine.
Similarly, I have also used Amazon product capsules just as a format element like a photo, which illustrates something about the subject, to break up large blocks of type. If it brings a sale-- fine, if not --it still serves a purpose.

Heads up! We’re changing the way we calculate Amazon earnings for participants in the HubPages Amazon Program (external Amazon affiliate users will not be affected).The changes we are making are necessary for the HubPages Amazon Program to work properly on AMP pages. Plus, authors will have more...

Amazon used to account for half my earnings on HubPages with sales happening every day. Now for the past five days (July 28 – Aug 1) I had zero sales. I’m still getting Google traffic to my articles that have Amazon capsules and Amazon text links. So I’m wondering what changed. Hopefully the HP...

I have shipped items showing each day and a value of sales but no earnings showing? Is this only me or is this a known glitch that HP are working to sort out?

37 cents in six days! At this time of year? That's got to be a glitch, right? I have sales just about every day, even though the amounts have fallen off a cliff over the last year. But five of the last six days are $0.00.

Someone told me that she purchased products from Amazon via my hubs last week. This is not showing up on my affiliate account - not even any clicks! Why?? She said she got an email from Amazon that the items have been shipped already. I used the Amazon capsule to display the items on my hubs.

Is there any way to find out which Amazon products sale? I found that I had an Amazon sale that made $0.88, and I went on my Amazon affiliate site to check and it has no sales listed--probably too soon to post there. I'd just like to know what sold--whether it was one of my books...
