I sold over $500 through my hubs yesterday (my commission is a LOT less, obviously). By far, it was my best day with eleven items sold. I usually sell two items per week on average, so this was a pleasant surprise.
The funny thing was that the items were from three different hubs, so I am pretty sure it wasn't just from one large order.
That's enough incentive to keep me motivated for the day!
And a FINE Amazon day it will be!
That is brilliant Mutiny! Well done and keep up the good work
That's Awesome Mutiny92.
I had a good day yesterday too. I was shocked when I saw that I sold 14 items. This is actually my best month ever. I'm trying not to get excited because it might stop. I don't want to hex myself.
I have had a poor Amazon week to be honest, probably sold about 8 items, which is dissapointing as I was selling 5 or 6 a day for the two weeks prior.
And congrats of course!
I sold one amazon item this week ($25). However that's good because I've only ever had four sales of about 10 items total!
This means I've had sales two months running. Hopefully I'll catch up to you soon Mutiny...
(I won't even bother trying to beat you, Ryankett.)
Beating me would be pretty easy, I'm not too hot with Amazon yet.
Now, beating Mark Knowles WOULD BE impossible! He gets to the 8% threshold, go and check out just how many items need to be shipped to achieve that!!!
631-1570 number of products shipped/downloaded in one month to achieve the 8% threshold.
Ouch. I'm currently trying to break into the amazon part. Adsense is doing alright but with 22 sales hubs I'm still waiting for the amazon sales.
If I read my hubs I'd totally buy off amazon!
I could not imagine selling 600 items in one month...Although, I would not argue with the commission!
Well what I've seen other people recommend is try and sell lots of small, cheap items to build up the commission. I'm sure if someone clicked through and was in the mood they might buy a dozen of a small item and that would count as a dozen items towards your commission. I had someone buy 7 cheap baby books a few months back in one hit.
They will come, seen a flatline on my Adsense at the moment, yet a dramatic increase in Amazon activity across my Hubs.
Chop and change these fickle customers do
So far, this has been my best Amazon month so far as well. It has been building up over the last six months since I concentrated on writing more Amazon-related hubs (60 so far under another user name. I am aiming for 100 as my first goal). I am prepared to wait, though, because they do need to age to make regular sales. I've done the keyword research for more than 100 more hubs. Now if I only had the time to write them!
I have 47 items delivered so far this month, which includes some left over from last month. There are even more orders lined up to be delivered. I've had one return, but it could be worse. :-)
I hope everyone has a great Amazon Day, Month and Year.
Good going. Was it one big item or several smaller ones? While the big items are fun to see, the little items scare me less. I always worry about returns with the big ones.
Here's to a great Christmas season!
Nelle, I had one item that was about half of the sales. The rest were smaller. I agree - returns would not be fun....
Me, too. So I reckon the 2 month wait there for the payout is a good idea. I'd hate to get paid and then have to give it back.
I think I had an order cancelled before it was shipped, a little gutted as it was just about big enough to be considered 'big ticket', but I am pretty certain the same buyer bought some other stuff so not so bad....
Unlucky, I have had two big ticket items in the last two months, was gutted when the laptop someone ordered was capped at $25 though, especially since it was a $1400 laptop!
Someone bought an $800- $900 item off me though, and that was uncapped, mmhhhhhh!
My earnings were slow for most of the week on Amazon, picked up yesterday though, had a smile on my face when I checked my earnings this morning
That's great Mutiny92.. Keep it up:), I've sold a lot too this month.. Over $500 worth of stuff and $30 for the commission.. Not bad, but I want to get better.. I know there is more to come for all of us.. We just have to keep on pushing..
I'm looking at $300 off Amazon this month, very poor compared to normal, and not good since it is what I normally use to pay rent!

I check my Adsense twice a day and am continually refreshing till Amazon rolls over at the end of the day as well. I've finally reached the point where I might get a sale every second day or so, although no one seems to want to buy more than one or two items (c'mon, someone, go on a shopping...

Somebody watched a movie on demand via one of my capsules, and Amazon gives you 10% for that! I wouldn't really know how to get more people to watch movies, other than movie reviews, but that is still pretty sweet anyway!Anybody else had something which pays good commission? I heard that you get...

I decided to check my adsense and amazon first thing this morning and I was completely shocked when I saw that someone had ordered 2 items from Amazon through my affiliate link. I'm so excited cause I didn't think anyone was going to actually buy anything. Oh and it wasn't from a product review...

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...

Well yesterday I posted how I got my first Amazon sale. Today I see I got 3 more! However, I noticed it does not show any money, and they are marked as ordered but not shipped. Does this mean you don't get credited for the sale until they ship?
