So, I have a negative Amazon balance this month. Is that because someone returned something? Another reason? It was almost $20 so it is not an insignificant amount given my usual monthly earnings here.
You are exactly right. The negative balance in your Amazon earnings is because of a returned item.
If you don't pay up, Amazon will seize your assets. And Amazon is not gentle.
edit: that is completely untrue.
Actually, if you are a seller on Amazon, they can seize your assets. Part of your agreement gives them access to withdrawal of any funds from your bank account that they deem required to cover a debt or potential debt incurred by your sales returns from your account.
Thanks, I learned something. Corporations, lol. More evil than you can imagine.
Have you ever heard of the British East India Company? In 1803 it had 280,000 troops in its private army and more ships than the British Navy. It slaughtered people with impunity and seized whole countries (like India).
The ways things are going, in twenty years time, Amazon will make the EIC look benign.
edit: none of this could possibly be true
I count on it. In the meantime, Exxon will be doing a bangup job controlling the world's resources with the US military at its beck and call.
edit: I expect this thread to be transferred to the politics forum forthwith.
The English East India Company weren't they a bunch of looters?
They needed a new word to describe their activities in Bengal so they appropriated 'loot' from Hindustani slang for 'plunder'.
The EIC was rather good at plunder as the UK's fine museums and country houses demonstrate.
Oh yeah! How did I not realise that. Loot in Hindi does mean to steal.
'Fifty Words the British Stole from India' and 'Twenty Fabulous Diamonds the British Stole from India' could both be viable pages.
I'm taking an interest in this stuff after seeing a few episodes of 'Taboo' (Tom Hardy's). It has a semi-realistic view of power tucked away in its mishmash of history, Gothic romance and witchcraft.

Why the negative Amazon earning is being deducted from Ad program earnings, while there is enough balance in previous month's Amazon balance which will be released next month?

I've noticed in the past couple of months that my balance history for a particular month does not reflect what my account shows in current time. Yes, earnings and page views were stalled during the last weekend of September, but now all is supposedly good. However, my balance history is $5 shy of...

Every day (or almost every day), I go on to my Amazon Associates account to check stats. Today, I saw my income for the month to date had reduced from when I checked it yesterday. Thinking it was due perhaps to returns or simply a "blip", I went on a few times through the day and see it...

My amazon earnings report says I have a substantial balance but Amazon says my account has no activity. They suggest hubpages is receiving my earnings. Has this happened to anyone?
