I have a question, how do you know if somebody clicks and buys one of your amazon items?
Do you get a email saying somebody clicked on a amazon item or do you have to wait until the numbers show up under your earnings? Also I have a preordered game amazon capsule and my question if somebody does buy the game, will it not show up until the release day when amazon bills the person or will it immediately show up? Sorry I am new to this and trying to figure everything out.
Also if the amazon still is showing a pending after two days does that mean anything?
Purchases can be viewed from the Amazon's affiliates web page; the same one you used to set up the initial earnings account with them. The only notifications they send you are at the end of the month to tell you if you're getting a payout, though even those emails aren't very specific. I usually just check Amazon Associates at the beginning of every new month to see if there were any sales. I assume that, with pre-ordered products, you would get paid when they bill the person's credit card. But most of the information you'll be seeing is reporting on a delay.
I had my first Amazon sale not long ago. I noticed it in my earnings report, and it did spend about four days 'pending'. I was able to check the Amazon Earnings Report and see exactly which items sold and the percentage I earned.
Do you only earn a percentage if the person buys that exact Amazon item? Or do you earn anything if they click on your item, go to Amazon through your ad, and purchase something else?
You do earn if they use your link as a click thru, then go on to something else - even if they don't buy the item you had linked - I earnt my biggest so far on a 50 piece set of storage containers that I have never linked!
Same results here, they didn't even buy the item displayed in my ad. They did make a fairly large purchase, consisting of several smaller items. I got a percentage of every item sold. So I agree with jlpark that you do earn from the link itself.

I know it can take up to 7 days for an ordered product to be shipped out, and that Amazon does not show ordered product on earnings report until it is shipped out. My estimation is that it has been 7 days since product was ordered, but earnings report still does not show it. If somebody...

It's happened to me twice in the last week. I've had minus amounts showing under Amazon earnings, but when I go into the detailed Amazon earnings report, the amounts are wrong. Matt has kindly fixed one from a few days ago, but it's just happened again. It might be just me, but everyone should...

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've just started focusing on amazon capsules few days back. Does anybody out there really make money thru amazon? How much can you earn per year using Amazon? Is it more rewarding than adsense?
