Is there a problem with Amazon earnings? Usually there is a message reporting the reason for any delays but although ads program earnings have been reported as normal, Amazon is still pending since Monday.
Yes, for me, too. I have seen this happen occasionally in the past, however, and it always catches up after a few days.
There have been no updates to my Amazon earnings since Sunday, 4/22. Does anybody know why?
This happens from time to time and usually is due to some glitch on the part of Amazon. Hope it clears up soon enough to lock in earnings for the next go round before the month changes!
Yeah, wouldn’t worry too much about it, Alison. Happens. Not trouble in paradise, just Thursday in paradise.
It’s more disconcerting to me that the editorial queue seems to be dead. Three hubs in the queue, one has been in for 5 months! I stopped submitting hubs every two weeks for vertical sites. What’s the point?
Still have three days pending which is weird as I never make anything for Amazon so don't know why 0 needs to be audited ( :
Just checked, still shoes pending the last 4 days for me as well.
They already posted their announcement on the earnings section.
Amazon Program Delay
"Due to a reporting issue with Amazon, Amazon Program earnings from April 23 on are delayed. We are working with them on the issue and hope to have it resolved soon."
I'm assuming that my earnings number was so high it broke their computers.
I have had several issues with Amazon totals this last couple of months. Whenever there was a minus amount, the rest of the day's sales were added up wrongly. Most are fixed but I have a couple of others that I'll have to let the team know about. Thought I'd wait till the end of the month. Matt says they are working on a fix, so don't know if that has anything to do with it.
Goodness, I always just accept the figure stated as Amazon earnings - I never check for accuracy - could you explain how you do that?
Thank you for that - I take it that if you find a discrepancy, you contact the team at hubpages? Unfortunately I don't think there is a way to do a similar check with the ad program
Have you found any reason for the discrepancies? A very late return the next month maybe, or something in pricing that changed? I'm not very familiar with the ins and outs of Amazon but there has to be a reason they don't pay for 60 days instead of 30.
No, the errors are in the addition of the totals for individual days.
So for instance (this is made up), for the 28th there might be five sales and one return/refund. Let's say each sale commission is $2 and the returned item is $1. So the total should be $9 (5 x 2 - 1). HP doesn't show a total there, you have to look at the earnings report page where it shows $7 total Amazon sales. $2 difference.
I've had to go back and total up each day and then cross-reference with the earnings report. It was easier to set up a spreadsheet. I can add each day's Amazon commissions and compare it with the earnings report. It would help enormously if the Amazon report included totals for each day. Would save to-ing and fro-ing between browser tabs.
It only happens when there is a return/refund. I make a lot of small sales, so returns are inevitable.
Matt has kindly added on the missing amounts to the current month (just paid) but I have another two small amounts to report.
Not so concerned about Amazon lag but would like to be able to get HP ad earnings updates for weekends before late Monday early Tuesday. Does anyone else have this problem?

It's been about 3 days or so since I saw anything but "pending" on my Amazon account. Anybody else? I know the team is busy with the merger, but it would be nice if they managed to keep our Amazon stats updated, too.

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...

What will happen if the Amazon affiliate earnings remain unresolved?Will we only be paid the earnings from the HP ad program?Will HP estimate our Amazon earnings and make a payment on that basis too? Given that we can do nothing about the Amazon problem ourselves, I think it is reasonable to expect...

I have been using amazon capsules in my articles for some time but have made almost nothing from them. When I checked my earnings settings to sign up for the new Amazon earnings via Hub Pages, it said my Amazon was inactive! What am I missing here? I have activated the new one,...

For the past three days my Amazon sales report says 'pending'. Is there a glitch, or did I do something? I haven't changed my account, so I'm worried. Is anyone else seeing this?
