    Normally when I reach my payout for my hubs if I make any amazon money it is combined and it all goes into my PayPal as one payment.  this month my amazon payment was not there.  what do I do?

    It depends on when the Amazon money was earned.  There is a delay in Amazon payments.  You should check the schedule in the Learning Center and FAQ.

      Thanks, I logged into my amazon sellers account per the link you referred to in your post (FAQ's) and I had not told Amazon that my hubs did not target children 13 or younger.  I think that may have been the problem, but I still don't know.  I sent hubpages a message and am awaiting their response.

    Amazon themselves said they needed that affirmation by August 31st, or they would cut off your earnings.  Several notices went out over the summer.

    You can find the info when you log into the Amazon affiliate dashboard.

      Thanks for the info. Even though my earnings are low, I must have missed that. Also, is the filing of Tax information is required too, which I seemed to have missed.

      Absolutely agree - the notification re children has been around for ages. 

      It was very definitely in my eyes one of those "must respond" as soon as you saw it notices.

      Bottom line if you deal with people who pay you money online you have to do the documentation. It's not a hobby for them and they have to play by the rules or they get fined or worse.

    Hubpages did email me back and let me know my payment will come next month.  It's on a 60 day cycle..I thought it was every 30 days because I got an amazon payment in december and january.  Was this changed or am I just confused.  oh well..
    I've logged into my regular Amazon account but rarely my Amazon affiliate dashboard.  I wish they were together because I get alot of emails from Amazon and most of them are basically ads for products.  I missed the email regarding the notification.  If their was a notification when I signed on to my regular amazon account it could have been more easily seen by me. Now I know to check there more often.
    However I was able to agree to the terms in time and it won't affect my payment.

      Amazon has always had a very long payment cycle. However there are affiliates that are even longer out there (ugh).

      Maybe you can request your accounts are merged? When I signed up for Amazon affiliates, years ago, I was logged into my main account and so the two have always been one and the same. Makes it easier when I'm searching Amazon so get shortlinks to products etc.
