Ok so I'm excited because I just logged into my amazon associates account and I've gotten my first ordered item!
The item was expensive
For example, let's say it's $1000
Does that mean once it ships i'll get paid 4% ($40)?
My current earnings are currently $0 but i'm assuming thats because
it hasn't shipped?
Do you get 4% of the list price, or 4% of whatever profit they make?
Am I ever actually going to get paid for this order?
congratulations! I haven't had an order placed yet, but thought I would say Gratz to you anyways!
In a nutshell, you got it right. There are difference in percentages depending on the type of item it is. And when you sell over a certain amount the percentages can go up a few percent.
Awesome! And I just deleted my Amazon Affiliate account by accident. I'll get it going again, though, with news such as this!!
Congratulations! Don't quote me, but in answer to your questions - A. You recieve 4% of the list price. B. You will get paid by Amazon when your affiliate revenues reach $100. By the way, I don't remember how many items you have to sell before you can earn 6%, but it isn't very many.
I received an order too on Amazon this week and my commission for the order is underneath it. I am so thrilled.
Selling an item worth so much is impressive, I tend to aim for cheaper items, and selling a lot of them
good for U. and thanks 2 U I have consider filling up all affiliate form and i hope I 'll as lucky as yourself!
I also sold one expensive item through Amazon (for well over $1000)! But that was a month ago and I have sold zilch since then.
Allan, it can sometimes take awhile for an item to ship, I had a few orders that took almost 2 weeks to ship. It was kinda frustrating but in the end it shipped and turned up in my earnings
I have yet to have a returned item or an ordered item canceled but I know that is the worry with bigger ticket items
Keep Amazon on your Hubs when you can - I do very well with them and it pays off. It may not seem like much at first for you. But it will pick up and bring you some spending money in the end.

Nelle, as the resident Amazon expert, I am well on my way to de-throning you now that after 7 months and over 200 Amazon capsule clicks, I finally got my first order and credit of $0.94. (LOL)Hope you have a good New Year's.

I sold a big item on Amazon at the beginning of last month, but it still hasn't been credited to my account. I know I have to wait for the item to be shipped but it's in stock so I can't think why it wouldn't have been sent out yet. It seems to be taking a very long time. Any ideas why?

I tried to add an amazon capsule to a hub the other day. Hm. No results. In fact, a search on "book" turned up no results. Very interesting. The hub tool must be broken.Later, I went to check on my Amazon earnings account and found that it had been closed. Just "closed". The...
