Well this Holiday season I made a whopping 5 sales and $0.69 commission! How should I spend it?
You and I have the same problem. Mine already hit $5 this month.
Give it to charity and claim it on your taxes. Hopefully your deduction will be worthwhile
Oh Simey, I had my first three sales on lingeries and my commision is 4.05 USD,
So what is the actual figure here we are figuring out on how to spend? 70cents??? Is that US dollars?? Be right back I will go get my Aussie dollar convertor calculator and we will whip this one in the teeth.
Well as soon as you make $100 Amazon does the "right thing" and pays you... well except for the $15 check fee.
In all my years of Affiliate Marketing I have yet to encounter a company that sticks it to affiliates like this... seriously A $15 FEE!!!
Once in a while I will have a company keep the postage as a deduction from earnings. But this is just plain theft.
Add to this the 24 hour cookie and it's a wonder Amazon gets people to work for them at all... and the vast majority of affliates will never reach the threshold.
I still make money with them, but I do not emphasize them. It's more of an afterthought because hubpages makes it easy and on big ticket items you can make money.
While I realize the sarcasm in your message... too many people do not understand how Amazon works.
Set your payment threshold higher then, I have been ambitious and set mine at $1000.
I must be on an old scheme? I get a quarterly gift certificate - I guess if you choose to be paid in an Amazon certificate, they don't mind waiving the $15 fee! Lucky me eh - I get to buy some products I didn't really want instead of having money!
Amazon is OK - but they do seem to 'steal' a lot eh - I was a little annoyed when I sold a Kindle book and got zerp commission .....
I had the Kindle Book problem, but I get paid by BACS in to an american account, so no cheque fee! I also made over $1000 so far this month on amazon, so won't be complaining anytime soon :p
Buy me a present??!!
Get something good, like a new tv or something good. Those are .69 right?
I feel your pain Simey. I haven't made any Amazon sales yet.
I'm hoping for one more Amazon sale. With that one more sale I move up to 6.5% on everything sold this month versus 6.0%. Now if someone will just buy a 50 ct diamond or something, I'll be set.
Smart prettydarkhorse. I just need to promote hot selling products on amazon with high commissions. all these cents are just too annoying when I see them.
BTW, the products I chose to promote in my sites are lingeries but then it is not related to the article, LOL, I didnt bother to check my earnings for a month and then I was just curious yesterday, huh...
sometimes also when I am putting amazon to my articles, I just promote whatever I feel like selling there too,three pieces of lingeries which caused 110 dollars for the three items and the commission is almost 4 plus....
I need to learn more to earn here, next year I will do that I am just enjoying to write now,,,,
Make sure your Amazon modules are related to make the most out of your hubs!

I am not doing that well on Amazon Affiliate earnings at the moment, I only make a couple of sales a month and I have made payout once ($10 giftcard) throughout the year. I would like to heavily increase my earnings, maybe enough to make payout every 2 to 3 months. I have integrated Amazon capsules...

Amazon changed their affiliate program yesterday by cutting the payout for most affiliates by half or more. Has HubPages addressed how these changes will affect content providers here?

When I check out my affiliate id under the earnings-settings tab I see an affiliate id that I can't find in my associate account via the amazon webpage the one which shows up is completely different. Therefore I'm unable to receive any earnings correct? Or is this unrelated and it's actually Hub...
