How can I earn a commission from an Amazon product sold for which I have no link or mention?
I just read my monthly Amazon sales report and was astonished to discover I'm credited with a commission for a "personal" product not mentioned in any of my hubs and for which I certainly didn't provide a link. This is confusing, and it's obvious I don't understand how the Amazon sales program works if I'm being paid because someone bought a product I didn't endorse. Does anyone understand why this would happen?
I think its because they go through your product link on your hub, then browse around a bit till they find what they want. because it goes through your link you get the automatic 'sale' money, not so much as you would have earned if they had bought your product but still a percentage. Good eh? lol!
Oh, wow! I thought I'd only earn if a reader bought a product shown on one of my Amazon links. I actually made a larger amount from this sale (even though the reader obviously browsed far afield from the item on my link) because it was pricey. Thanks
I think Nell has your answer for this! It's just great to have the commission!
You're right! I now hope that anyone who follows one of my Amazon links browses all over the website and eventually buys something expensive or multiple items. It is definitely good to have the commission and will boost my monthly HP earnings. Thx!
Nell is completely correct. Congrats on the sale Jay!
Maybe you can encourage more browsing of that nature and increase your earnings. It may be a product that you will do well linking to from a relevant hub.
Considering the "nature" of that particular product, I won't be publishing a relevant hub to which I can link it (not that HP would allow it.) Haha. I didn't even know Amazon sold that type of product. I think I blushed.
As others have said, once someone clicks on an Amazon link from one of your Hubs and makes a purchase, you earn comission. As an example someone bought a vacuum the other day from one of my Hubs, I have never written, recommended, endorsed or mentioned any vacuum cleaners in any of my Hubs, ever!
