    Hi friends,
    In earning reports, we have two columns-1.my earnings and 2. Balance history.

    I want to know,
    1. whether the amount shown in the 'my earning' column is after deducting hubpages portion(40%) of the income?
    2. In the month of March 2017, My earning report shows $1.75. If I go to balance history, it shows $0.92(from 1st March to 31st march). Can you please tell me, why this difference?

        Articles will not earn unless they are extremely well written and you have a good number of them.  At first you may only earn pennies a month, but if you hone your skills, you can make more later.  It sometimes takes years before you really start earning and some people never do well.

        I see by your question that you are a second language English speaker.  If your English is not excellent, it is unlikely you will earn much.  So if I were you I'd take some classes in writing English to help myself improve.

          Thanks for your suggestions. You are right. English is my second language. I write articles on food and recipes. Whether online classes are available to improve my writing English? If you have any idea, please inform me. I want to take classes if there is one.
          This month I may start getting payment from HP.

    1. Yes. To be  clear, HubPages doesn't deduct 40% from your earnings. 40% of the time, ads are credited to HubPages, not you. Those HP earnings are not recorded in your account so what you see is what you get.

    2. They should be the same UNLESS, you also made any Amazon sales. Amazon sales take an extra month to process to allow time for returned items. So look again for any Amazon sales that account for the difference.

    Thank you so much. Now I see, there was an Amazon sale in Mar 2017, with my earning $0.83. Both together is exactly the same amount($1.75). I got it!

      Shally you can't use HubPages to sell products.

        Rupert:  Of course you can...as long as you do so using Amazon capsules.

        That's a strange comment, Rupert.  We don't sell, but we earn commission from sales, so I don't see any problem with her comment.

      I have noticed this difference too and after doing some calculations I reached this conclusion.
      Your ADSENSE earnings of March will be paid on April. While AMAZON or ebay (before) earnings of March will be paid on May. That's why it is not the same.
      If you want me to make it more clear to you it goes like this.
      Lets say you have earned from adsense 40$ on march, and from amazon 5$, which earnings reports will show 45$ for march. While in your balance history, this 40$ will be paid on april, along with amazon earnings from february which may be like 2$. So in April you will get 42$.
      Then in April you earn from adsense 50$ and none from amazon. This 50$ of April will be paid on May, along with the 5$ from amazon on March, which will be paid on May. So on May you get 55$ in total.

      So, the long story short, Adsense pays you after 1 month, while Amazon pays you after 2 months. The Balance History just adds them up, and pays you the whole amount.
