I was just wondering what the normal ratio of clicks to conversions is on amazon. I've had nearly 100 clicks but not sold a single thing. Is that normal? Not that I can do anything about it either way, I'm just curious!
I would be interested in hear this info too. I tried that twitter thing they came out with a while ago and got loads n loads of clicks but not one single sale! I have 2 sales total with them so far so if there are factors that improve the ratio of clicks to conversions that would be good info too
On the plus side I have earnt something almost every day for the last two weeks in Google, which im mega excited about. Still nowhere near pay-out but at least its something. Just need to write more
I've had 9 clicks so far in my month as an Amazon affiliate, so by the law of probabilities I'm probably some way off my first sale (I estimate that a realistic rate would be 1-2 sales for every 100 clicks although if Jen's experience is anything to go by, maybe that's a bit on the optimistic side.)
I'm now earning a few pence on Adsense every day and have so far clocked up £3.64... If the current trend continues I will make payout in about 18 months LOL.
I'm on £8.63. estimate pay out NEVER, coz im only earning money off my xmas hubs. Will have to write some more money hubs for after xmas ... prepare for valentines day perhaps??
I haven't earnt anything yet, so I don't know if it will show them in pounds or dollars. I imagine it won't be in pounds.
The £8.63 refers to my Adsense.
Oh I see, well my Adsense shows in £ too.... but your Amazon.com will always show in $.
Sorry to break this too you, but you are going to have to raise your payment threshold on Amazon.... mine is set at $250.
It costs about £10 to cash an American cheque with a UK bank.... so getting a $25 cheque will leave you with pennies!
I have thought about this too, wondered if I should have tried affiliating with amazon.co.uk but I do have a us$ account so figured I would just deposit it there, to bad they wont do funds transfers like paypal or something. Seems expensive to have to write checks out of folks who would rather it be done electronically....
Affiliating with Amazon.co.uk is great if you have a blog targetted very specifically at the UK audience. For example, a blog about the 'English Premier League' or 'London Club Scene' but wouldnt do you any favours on hubpages.... the US traffic far outweighs the UK traffic.... and the capsules do not work with the UK Amazon anyway....
I try and look at my $250 in a positive way.... I already have $25, that is already 10% of a payout.... and there are hubbers managing $250 per month.... so why shouldnt I aim to achieve that? I guess that it is certainly a motivator!
I think it's going to be a long time before I have to worry about that, but I'll bear that in mind if I somehow manage to make any money on Amazon!
Ahhh good, don't need to worry that I would have been better off going for a UK affiliate
For me a conversion rate of 8-10% is normal. Although it does fluctuate.
I have a similar conversion rate to many of the others, between about 2% and 8% depending on what the hub is about. Some things convert much better than other. But I am still pretty new and have only had a couple of sales. Good luck!
It's £10 to cash a US cheque in the UK???
Anyone got any idea what it would cost to cash in Spain? They take about €20 just a cash a UK cheque!
Not that I have any Amazon earnings....
I'm new to hubpages but placed Amazon for the first time on a couple of niche websites I own. My stats show 300 impressions with a 15% click through ~45 clicks but also no sales. I was pretty excited about the click thru but I guess I will wait till I get 100 clicks to pass judgement, These are moerate to higher priced items. It might be that lower priced items such as books convert better.
Which hubs of yours do you think should be converting the most?
I can take a quick look if you want, it might just be a case of advertising something different, or advertising amazon in a different way!

I am wondering which bank people in the UK pay their Amazon cheque into. Don't ordinary high street banks take a slice before converting it back into ££££.

I am wondering if anybody else has noticed a good sized drop in Amazon earnings this month. I'm usually at 3 figure per month, but this month it's possible I won't even make payout. Something doesn't seem right here. Anybody?

My Amazon report for Saturday the 1st of March still shows 0 clicks and 0 sales. The other days have updated normally.Initially I assumed it might be a problem with Amazon reporting or a glitch, which would be fixed in time, but it's getting to be a rather old glitch.Strangely enough if I look at...

I have noticed an issue with Amazon earnings over the past several days that I hope HP will address. An earnings value is posted but in a day or two it drops, sometimes by a significant amount. It seems something is wonky with the initial calculation and it is later fixed.I understand the earnings...

We are going to increase Amazon earnings for most of you! Amazon is becoming part of the HP Earnings program. In early November folks will have the opportunity to switch to get paid their Amazon earnings through the HP Earnings program. For new Hubbers, this will greatly simplify...
