4%, 6%, 6.5%, 7%, 7.5%, 8%, 8.25%, or 8.5% dependant on what threshold you achieve. Many hubbers achieve 7%, at least a few achieve 8%. Electronics are capped at 4% however, and laptops are capped at $25. Some items actually recieve 10% commission, including Kindle books and Videos On Demand. I believe that the commission for the Amazon Kindle is even greater than 10%!
I would not call 7-8% "very minimal". The $25 that I recently got paid for a $2400 Apple Macbook Pro can be considered minimal however, as this works out at a fraction over 1%.
I have heard from large affiliates that own huge sites, that the basic commission is 3.5-6% on most toys/electronics/home goods. I imagine the kindle would pay more as of course the downloads because they are actually Amazon's products at that point.
Cagsil, will you pretty please with icing on top buy me something including the priority shipping. Not too be hinting but remember, I don't read or wear sweatsuits. i pad? Oh surprise me ok? Your da best
Great job Cagsil - may there be many more to come. To get one this early is pretty neat - it over a month to get my first sale. I don't dare complain, though - Amazon is about 1/3 of my paltry income from HP.
Hey Wilderness, thank you very much. It was a pleasant surprise for it to come as quickly as it did, just because I was new to writing sales hubs. The hub had only been up less than 2 weeks, which was why I was so surprised.
Congrats, Isn't it a great feeling. I didn't use Amazon until a few months back and now the sales are flowing. The commission is rather low but people Will buy from Amazon and my sales numbers reflect that. Remember the more you sell, the higher the commission. I usually end the month at 6.5% and that really isn't bad.
Hi hubbers, I made my very first Amazon sale two days ago and you can guess how I feel right now. I know there are hubbers who make several sales a day, but this is a very big milestone to me worth sharing. This is a big boost on earnings and now I have all the reasons to get back hubbing. Thank...
So, ok it's only a couple of bucks, but so what...I'm still really new at this! It was from my women's plus size pajamas hub. I guess every beginner feels like this when they make their first sale, like wow I guess I did something right! BTW - thanks to darkside, relache, sunforged, and many other...
I almost fell off my chair! I had come to accept that it was never going to happen, but it really has, I've just made $ .68! Now, I'm excited. I'm hoping to double my earnings in '09!Wow! The same week that I hit my first $100 in AdSense, too. It's been a good week.
I've been receiving regular sales through Amazon with other sites... and today, 2 months into my hubpages journey I made my first Amazon sale! It was a product lens that I did only a few weeks ago! They bought black curtains!
.24 cents! Not impressive, but now I know that the amazon capsules can work for me. It was for a book, entitled: "Hooking Up". lolAnyways,after 209 amazon views, it's nice to finally earn something!I'm assuming it'll be quite sometime before I reach the $10.00 threshold at this rate.
