    Good thing you don't care about the money because Amazon doesn't pay you until you have $100 in commissions then they keep $15 for a check processing fee.

    Sad that people work so hard for Amazon for free... and most will never get paid and this is why Amazon has made it so far - free advertising labor.

    Kind of a buzzkill isn't it?

      Actually, you can have it automatically deposited into your checking or savings account, in $10 increments.

      @fishtiger58:  Congratulations!  I just got my first sale a few weeks ago, and it feels sooo good! smile

    OMG after reading your post, I decided to check my Amazon, which I hadn't looked at in months. I made 2 sales but I only earned $1.80.

      Congrats fishtiger58 and kmackey32! That's a start.  An e-marketer once told me if you can make a $1 on the internet you can make $1,000 big_smile  So way to gooo!

    Congratulations. The first sale anywhere for any amount is always very exciting. It proves way down in your toes that you can indeed make money online. I still remember my first sale and all of the goosebumps.

    Congratulations.
    I always give myself a high five when I log into my adsense and amazon account and see a new sale.  The feeling never gets old.
