I just love when folks share the wacky stuff they sell with amazon. This looks like quite the book! The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
Who knew there was a potato peel pie society!
Also managed an eat pray love book but I have heard that thats big in the States. Anyone writing any hubs on it?
Its a favorite of mine and I wrote a review on the book some time ago. The book has sold millions and it's got new life since the movie came out.
Congrats on the sales.
I saw something on the Daily Show about it being huge there. I would write something if I knew something about it to write!
I think my weirdest ever sale was for hair loss cover up make up! Did not know they sold that
Yes it IS strange. I sold some tweezers! Why would someone go to Amazon to buy tweezers? Beats me - I earned a few cents from that sale!
Elizabeth Gilbert got an advance and one year off from her job to travel and write the book. She's been interviewed on Oprah too so that helped lift sales into the stratosphere
Oh...I should be so lucky with my fledging novel!
That would be soooooooo cool
I hope someday to see you post here that your book is in the shops! That it is selling and up for awards too
Thanks so much KB. I will post something at some stage. As to awards etc - WOW - that'd be amazing.
I just designed a cover thanks to a suggestion from fellow hubber Lynda Martin. I'm so happy with my writing progress.
You're right the hair loss cover makeup is WEIRD!
I sell lots of cheese graters and that's about as wacky as my amazon sales go, but I have sold some stuff on other websites that don't fit the topic like on my art blog I sell a few sexy nurse costumes, even though I only link to art pencils and books......
I will try and keep a track on more wacky sales as time goes on. lol!
Cheese graters don't sound wacky... we got a collapsible one for camping after seeing one in a shop while on our last camping trip (was way over priced and not a great color, white shows dirt to much so we got online). Then again I am a big cheese lover! My nephew and I are cheese monsters
hey wayne good result on the nurses outfit- i though Relache had finished with all that now - lol
I just sold a bunch of vitamins and supplements, that is the whackiest I've seen...
I have yet to sell anything on Amazon, weird or otherwise...I must be writing the wrong type of hubs lol.
Cockroach bait was one of the weirdest things I ever sold - not something that I would ever look for on Amazon!
I have also sold a Maori phrase book, a Stawberry Shortbread child's wig, and a DVD of The Sound of Music in Spanish!
The strangest I ever sold was a grow-a-frog kit...meant to be able to hatch out and grow a live frog, I guess trying to capitalize on the sea monkey idea or something. I guess it is more closely related to some of my hubs than the car speakers I sold, at least, since I do have hubs on animals and none on cars.
I have sold S&M products (outfits, accessories and books...) Definitely didn't write any hubs about those types of things!
I sell lots of mouse and rat traps, which is odd because I don't have any hubs about rats or mice. I've also sold a lot of "adult" themed items; also completely unrelated to any of my content. The strangest thing was probably bacon flavored breath mints and tooth paste.
I've yet to sell anything really way out; most of my sales are stuff that's actually on my hubs (or things that are closely related). Pretty well the only non-related things I've sold are a couple of romantic novels, a Bob Dylan CD and some keyboard stickers.
I must say, I'm quite encouraged by how my Amazon's doing this month... better than Adsense.
I think the oddest thing I've had so far is Bear Repellent. I looked twice when I saw that one!

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...

My Amazon sales are dead in the water. My Amazon Caps are discrete - I have added only when directly related to a product.I am not getting much traffic at the mo, so I guess this is an issue. I posted around 60 Hubs in Dec 2014, so it should be these have not been picked up by Google as organic...

I have a question for those of you who use Amazon in your hubs. Let's say that you are writing a hub with a list of different products. Do you think it's better to put all the amazon stuff at the bottom of the hub, all in one place, or to spread the ads throughout the hub, with one ad per product?...
by anish92 10 years ago
Hi. I wonder if anyone could tell me what type of products (eg. text books, music CDs, earrings...) sell through Amazon Associates units on Hubpages and similar sites so that I can create a few hubs with this in mind. No one in my family ever buys anything online except for professional guide...

I just got this email. Is terminating your account normal if you don't have any sales or referrals in 90 days????Hello,Thanks again for joining the Amazon Associates program. We’re reaching out to you because we have not seen sales activity on your account.At the time your application was...

Recently Paul Edmondson made a statement about ads which has caused some confusion.He has suggested that if you are using Amazon ads on a Hub, you should turn off other advertising. I can understand his reasoning, BUT it will backfire badly if you don't do it right.The theory is that...
