I'm on the Performance Fee Structure with Amazon, and am at the 6.5% mark right now. I sold an Apple iPod the other day for roughly $350.00. It just shipped and showed up in my Earnings with only a 4% commmission. I don't get it. Anyone have any ideas?
Can you tell I don't sell many electronics?
SF, I searched through Amazon's help for that, but guess I didn't scroll down the page far enough.
Its on the performance fee structure page rather than the help files.
the 4% cap Is the primary reason I focus on ebay for newer electronics .. averaging 8-10% there
Congrats though, still a nice commission and a good overall sales volume if your at 6.5% also
Thanks. I've got maybe 7 or 8 hubs driving my Amazon sales, and the lowest I've ever finished out in my worst month is at 6.0%. But like I said, a good chunk of the stuff I sell has nothing to do with what I wrote about. How reading about immersion blenders prompted someone to purchase a $350 iWhatever is totally beyond me.
They have recently changed the commission for like ebooks (maybe other things too). I managed 2 ebook sales for kindle and should be getting a commission for that, not sure how that works tho. I did not expect any commission when I first saw the sales so am not overly bothered to go reading when the earnings clear and if the commission is a set one. It is still a welcome change, lets hope they make more changed over time that are good for us affiliates
As far as I know there is 0 commission on ebooks.
After they lowered the commissions on the Kindle device (booo...that hurt!) they changed kindle books to 10%, as opposed to 0. Whenever I sell kindle books these days, they "ship out" the same day and you should receive the commission under earnings the same day the order is made.

It's been a while since I made any amazon sales, finally the ice was shattered; but, even though I sold 2 items (They're ordered) my earnings show as $0. Do they have to be delivered before I get the commission?

We have another thread connected to this, but no-one from the staff side has responded. The recent changes in the structure of Amazon commission seem to have had a detrimental affect. While the number of sales has not decreased, earnings have halved this month.89 shipped sales (103 total sales so...

Don't you just love that we don't get commissions for Kindle book sales? I'd love to know what the excuse for that is. Every time I see one of those zero commission sales in my reports I want to scream. I never link to the Kindle versions of books. Buy paper!! Down with electronic reading devices!...

A few weeks ago my earning percentage dropped from about 10% to about 5%. Is it just me?
