    I decided to remove all my Amazon capsules and cash in what I've made so far with their program ($30 or so). Their minimum for a gift certificate exchange is $10, however I've applied for this in the settings and I've been waiting a few weeks now with still no word from them. Does anyone know how long it takes them to issue gift certificates for affiliate earnings, and whether you receive them by e-mail directly or not? The payment history page isn't really helpful.

    I'm sorry to say I don't know, but might I ask why you are removing them ?

    My Adsense earnings have totally eclipsed anything I make from Amazon. On average, every time I get a sale on Amazon I earn 20-30 cents, every time I get a visit to a Google ad I earn $1+. It's pretty ridiculous in my opinion. If someone buys a hard cover book you should be making more than if someone visits a website, but that's Amazon for you. I reckon the capsules also just get in the way of displaying Google ads more clearly.

      Wow, and I am totally the opposite. My HP amazon earnings are way better than my adsense earnings. Methinks I could learn a thing or two from you... smile

        Yes, me too.  I've made almost 6x the amount on Amazon I've made on Google.  Just depends what you write about, I believe.

    ahh I see I see. $1 per click not bad at all. I've been pretty lucky to be getting 20-50 cents per click.

    I still earn a ton more from adsense on things other than hubpages though, I am sure that will change soon though...only getting 250-400 impressions a day from hubpages but hey thats after 1 month.

    anyways sorry to stray away from your question.

    I got a gift certificate notificaton from them by email--  for about $14 or so--but being new, I thought it was some kind of phony scam and I did something which accidentally invalidated it. I will be more careful, next time.

      Did you receive it at the end of the month or at the beginning?

    I think July's earnings come out in September.  Amazon has a link on their site about when earnings come out.  There's definitely a lag.

      Late September it says.  You can find questions regarding payments under the "help" button.
