Amazon payments on a 60 day payment cycle

    Come someone please explain where $16.99 of my Amazon earnings went?

    I was tracking my earnings all last month, and it totaled up to $28.70 by the end of the month, so why does my balance history show that there was only $11.71 added to my balance?

    I like the higher percentage of earnings by displaying Amazon ads through HP's system, but I can no longer see if there were any returns, cancelled orders, or whatever the true reason is that the numbers don't match up...

    I just added up the numbers on the "my amazon sales" page and they add up to $28.70 as well. And no, I do not click my own ads... so, any help?

      After looking at my earnings report, 13 out of the 15 items ordered shipped in the month of May (one was cancelled I guess, and the other shipped in June), but that only accounts for $1.40 of lost earnings.

        So are you saying the returned item was worth $1.40 commission? or is it for the 13 sales?

        Also, are you sure you're not accidentally adding up the adprogram earnings as well?

          The Ad Program has its own column, and I selected just the Amazon program from the drop down menu, so that only its earnings were visible.

          $1.21 is the commission earned from the item that was ordered on May 31st, and shipped June 1st, but if I change it to only show May 1-31 then both the shipped earnings and earnings column say $28.70, so the cancelled order and the item that shipped in June don't really matter...  they are not the cause for the missing $16.99 in commissions, and that'd have to be a BIG return!

          The most I made in commission from a single item in May was $9.35.

          I don't know what the cancelled item was - can't see that in these reports - and I can't even see what it was worth.

          The 13 items that shipped in the month of May = $28.70 in commissions.

          Wait a minute... the $11.71 is the earnings from April.
          So, April's earnings are only available to me in June?

          I forgot Amazon makes you wait that long.
          Looking back at my Amazon account, I can see that was the case with them as well.

          I can understand why they do that, just in case there are returns, but that really messes up the month to month earnings on here.

          You'll see you were way over the $50 threshold in May, but nope... not really... because April's Amazon earnings are what you'll get in June.

            This can be deleted.
            My mistake.

      Check your balance history report. It does a good job of breaking down the earning and schedule.

      Keep in mind that Amazon is on a 60 day payments window.

        Yeah, it was the 60 day window I forgot about. 
        Was looking forward to a $104.31 PayPal deposit this month, but an $87.32 deposit will do for now.
