    After 5 emails and a lengthy call with Amazon, what I suspected is true: my Amazon links are not working! I was told that it was HP's fault and that Amazon could not help me - that HP had to. When I first signed up for Amazon via HP, my links were working. Now they're not. Why? I haven't changed them.

    This is incredibly frustrating. I know I've sold products via my hubs, yet I received none of the revenue and none of the clicks. Who is getting the money for these?

      hmm

      i checked my amazon report this morning and it was all zero, whereas before it was full of stuff. then i realized that it defaults to the current month (December), so since i haven't sold anything for December yet, my report is blank. if you expand it though, it shows all my past sales. i know this is not your problem, but i am just mentioning this in case someone else logs on to their amazon report and goes 'hey, where'd all my stuff go?'

      i'm glad they got to the bottom of it for you. HP rules!

      are you absolutely sure your codes match? mine was off because I forgot to add www at the beginning of mine. they looked the same when I checked, but my son went in and verified they were not the same.

      I sent Paul a message last night through his hub mail and received a message this morning.

      good luck. I'm sure it will be taken care of soon!!! smile

    Take a Deep Breath First Habee.... or you'll come across as Unbelievably Frustrated lol

    I contacted Paul through his profile page. I'll let you know what I find out.

    I'm a computer dummy, but it seems like if I had done something wrong, the links wouldn't have worked at first and then suddenly stopped working. Right?

    Actually I was wondering what's up too. I had earned some cash there, and I haven't cashed out yet, but when I checked yesterday my report showed zero earnings since I joined.

    It shows sales of products but no longer shows referral earnings.

    Now I'm wondering is this is a systemic problem.

    Just wanted to let you guys know that Paul has already emailed me and is on the case!

    Paul says it's fixed. He said some part of the code was missing. I still don't see how it worked for a while and then stopped, but I hope it's really repaired now!

    Gotta say, that was fast service!

      Hopefully its all sorted out, but a few things you should be aware of...

      * Your Amazon Associate ID shows for 60% of the hub views. HP HQ gets the other 40%. So if someone purchases on their impression, they get the commission.

      * If you buy something off your own impression, Amazon won't credit you the commission.

      Amazon only updates once a day. Usually about 8 am on the US east coast.

        that's good to know, thanks, Nelle.

        we can check at the bottom on our screen to see who's getting any impressions at a certain time, just move your cursor over an item and check the bottom destination address, you will see either your code or HP.

        yeah HP. big_smile
