I have never made ANYTHING off of eBay or Amazon but I do fairly well with Adsense. I wondered why I was never showing earnings and not even any clicks on my other affiliates. I decided to check my affiliate settings and both eBay and Amazon had the wrong code numbers. I'm not saying that I'm above making mistakes, but I was VERY careful to make sure that I entered the right numbers when I set up my accounts and the numbers were far off enough that I know that they somehow some way MUST have been changed. Not only was I very careful, but I know I didn't make the same mistake twice. Especially with numbers so far off. What's going on???
I think only staff can have authoritative answer here, but usually such things are result of human error.
If computer programs make mistakes, they tend to make the same mistake consistently - means everybody's data should have been messed up - and this is probably not the case, cause we did not see any other report on the same problem.
And I really doubt you make enough for any hacker to get interested in hacking your affiliate data...
I certainly have no idea how I could have made such a big mistake twice after trying to be so careful but I will go with this explanation unless it happens again. Hopefully it don't. I've checked an rechecked so if it does...I know I'm not that mixed up
If you think your account was accessed by someone other than yourself, you'll clearly need to contact admin about it, but otherwise, as Misha pointed out, it's usually human error.
I have an issue with the same things, maybe i did it wrong, dont you copy the code from the box they show you? and then place it in the your page before the <body> at the bottom of the source page? i never see any numbers in my earnings report.

If you could go back in time and change something bad you did, would you go back?

If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?

I am not perfect. I have made mistakes in the past and will continue to make mistakes. The object is to learn from the mistakes. I find it pretty amazing how much can be learned from mistakes when truly analyzed. I also believe Karma is reality. When I have made mistakes, I find it truly amazing...

I'm very curious to know what the natives think about this.I have been studying English for a long time, and I'll probably be a lifetime learner of the language as I am not a native speaker. On the other hand, I often think that even the native speakers will never stop learning new things about...

I have just been checking out how to set up an astore at Amazon. I set it up, putting in some books that I would like to promote, but then got stuck when I saw that the URL has hubpages in it, because I used the same affiliate code that I use for Hubpages. Does anyone know if I need to use a...
