    I was just walking home from work, excited about checking my Amazon following the weekend when I thought to myself "Wouldn't it be good to find 5 items sold".

    Low and behold, I had sold 5 items. Basically an Xbox 360 250gb console, three games and some expensive console related gadget. Must have all been from one person.

    Total sale of $535! Really delighted with that, the likely $32 commissions will push me over my monthly record for Amazon smile

        God bless Microsoft?
        Does a new Xbox model make you feel religious?
        You could have a little shrine dedicated to Microsoft in your front front yard.

    Excellent Ryan, to do this with all the earning stuff like Adsense, Ebay and Amazon combined and even with Kontera if your views are high would be even better!!

    Well done!!

      Unfortunately I cannot get an eBay affiliate account just yet, and Kontera is frankly awful.

      But I do have frequent $30 AdSense days now, although my average is around $20.

        My adsense earnings are getting better since I'm optimizing my old hubs and starting to write a mix of what people are searching for and also to write my own interests spread over 4 accounts.

        Kontera is turd for me at the moment too, mainly because my views don't reach 10,000 a day yet.

          Since you thought it was funny I wrote 'arse' in a forum, can I giggle childishly at your 'turd'? big_smile

        10 days out of the week now I am getting an average epc of 30 cents with Kontera now, I think it is improving!

        I tried to get the eBay affiliate, but I thought that the indication from HP was that eBay is no long doing this.  Can we still get them?

          eBay now requires you to have your own website. Even then though, it's hard to get accepted. sad

      congrats Ryan,

      your post made me look at my amazon sales, and I was shocked I have 22 ordered items from June 1 to 20 but 21 shipped it said, third party 3 it said and 18 total amazon, earnings is only 13.60 hehe

      I am just glad, mostly fathers day and world soccer hubs

    Yey go Ryan. My Amazon items have not been so expensive but they have been very entertaining - vuvuzelas, hair gel, a crepe maker and brazilian waxing kit! Gonna be quite some party when that lot gets delivered. Pretty sure its not going to the same person.

    Congratulations!! I haven't sold anything from Amazon since Xmas. My clicks have been going up though so hopefully it's only a matter of time.

    Well done though! big_smile

    HP has worked well for me, too, so far. I've made the Google payout three months running (HP only), including this month already, and Amazon has pulled ahead of Google in June. I think Amazon may make more than Google in the long run. Google needs to kick it in the shorts or Amazon will run away with the race.

    Ryan, it is nice when someone buys a pile of stuff. Nice to know a check is coming in.

    Congrats to all of you guys that already broke the records....I am just hoping mine will be coming soon too...

    Hi Christene, you're right that ebay application is tough now, but I think their reasons of rejections some are unacceptable. They just rejected my application recently :{
