    Someone just ordered a snowman sweater via one of my hubs lol

    not big money but its started my Amazon career, until now all my money was coming from Adsense, until I started writing more product hubs recently.

    $19.00, thats about £10.. Anyone know how much you need to earn on Amazon to receive payment?

      You should earn at least $100 to get a payment but I think you can easily pass this level if you regularly write product reviews.

      p.s. : I forgot to say that this is for payment by check. If you have a bank account in US, it is just $10

      It's $100 Richie, and they pay by cheque. You'll find that UK banks take a whack off the total in fees for cashing a dollar cheque, but its a fixed fee no matter the size of the cheque, so it might be worth raising your pay out level so that you only get hit with the one fee. I've followed RyanKett's advice to wait until I have $1000 before getting payout. I doubt very much if I'll get there this year, but when  do it'll be worth waiting for. I grudge giving rich bankers any more of my hard earned cash than I can help.

        Agree with you Izzy, but I have set mine at $500 as I'm not patient enought to wait for $1,000.  Only about $30 to go now!!!!

        Izzy and Richard - I banked my last check at Barclays and they charge a % instead of a one off after a particular level is hit - cost me about £10 to bank a check of about $450.

        Going to try Lloyds this month. Staff at Barclays were kind but clueless - I live in a very small town and not all the residents had heard of this magical 'Amercia' place, let alone their magical 'dollars' currency smile

          Let us know how you get on - Lloyds TSB is my bank, and I've been wondering what's going to happen when I wave a $150 cheque under their noses (which should be some time in January/February 2011 with any luck). 

          I too live in a small town where people's geographical knowledge is similarly limited lol

        He's with You can't use with Hubpages, unfortunately, unless you place an external link for them in which case you can only insert 2 per hub.

    Congratulations on your first sale. I have found that it can really be a snow ball affect with Amazon. And since it is the beginning of the month, you can hopefully get some more sales to help your payout to be bigger.

    Cool, I really need to get on product hubs, I just don't really know what to do.

    Congrats on your first sale. Before you know it you'll hit pay out. Since I'm not in the US, I opted to receive gift certificates and pay out for this one is $10. smile

    It was hilarious Empress. They were franticly tapping on computers and calculators and looking at booklets, and in the end I just told them to bank it and I would work out what it had cost me later smile. Expecting to have to do the same thing at Lloyds. Will let you know - banking it tomorrow.
