I have been waiting over 24 hours for that window! Not the first time tho, had to wait almost 3 days once! Just have to be patient I guess Could be orders there that will be shipped by the time we see them
I hope you're right, Bill!! I've been checking every few minutes - they've been so good at updating early lately so this is very frustrating. I sold 41 items on friday, so I'm hoping for more of the same - I hope tomorrow (Cyber Monday) is even better!
Yes it is possible. I think the number is so big because I had a couple people stop by my hub and then order extra stuff for the holidays. Also I sold a lot of small ticket items. But the more you sell the better the percentage.
"Cyber Monday" is the online shopping version of "Black Friday". Black Friday is said to be the busiest shopping day of the year for retailers; Cyber Monday is supposedly the biggest online shopping day - many online retailers run Cyber Monday deals...
Yes, but I was only here a few months this time last year. I sold about $10 more in December than November but I don't think looking at my stats are typical. My gut tells me that December will be good, but not better than November - it just feels like people are shopping earlier than normal this year...I could be wrong, though, and I hope I am!
I sold less than I expected to yesterday as well. However there are still about 20 items that have not yet been shipped.. So maybe they will go out today.. along with any other sales! Hooray for Cyber Monday!
I sold one more item yesterday. But a load of stuff shipped out, bumping my commission rate up to 6.5% for the first time ever. If I had - say - 200 straight "sales" hubs instead of the 50 or so I've got at present, I'd probably be ecstatic right now as opposed to just pleased
I have to say this is the first time since childhood that I've actually enjoyed the run-up to Christmas!
Me too! This is great fun - this last few weeks I have been living JUST for the Amazon update each day (well, almost!) This time last year I had NO sales hubs so naturally never sold anything, but it was fun seeing everyone else get so excited in the forums. Yesterday I sold 20 items which is a personal best, and have more than 40 items waiting to ship. I hop they don't ship before Wednesday as it'll give me a nice start to December
Tell me about it! Had 5 laptop related sales on sunday that pushed me on to the next % tier as well . I am getting all excited to write product hubs again and since my excitement last year resulted in selling hubs it is all starting to feel serious in a great way
It's actually more like 5 hours from now. Maddening, isn't it? I know it's the busy season, but they've been having this problem for most of the year. You'd think a company that size could keep on top of things!
oh thanks - i got a bit muddled with my time differences there. I'll be back online in a few hours then. The other day it took ages to update I'd sold a TV so by my reckoning if its taking twice as long I must've sold 2 TVs
Does that mean that items I sold during the first of the month at 4% will now add on the extra % over the course of the month? I thought when you get an extra % boost it only applies to items you sell after that?
It was worth the wait - I sold 51 items yesterday, a huge record for me. My previous record was 41 items just a few days ago on Black Friday! I made it to 7.5% for the first time ever! There are still 64 items that have not shipped, but Honestly I hope that not too much shipped out today because it'll give me a good jump on December totals!
I hope Relache is right about Dec 6th and 13th being bigger online shopping days than yesterday because that would be pretty incredible to beat the $1700 I sold yesterday!!
That is really amazing! Great work - you are beyond freelance writing and going into small business territory if you ask me! And all this without the hassle of employees and fixed time constraints... love the internet...
I just checked mine, I usually check every other day. I reached what I am targeting, so I am now 7 percent. I hope the next .5 percent will come sooner! I know I can learn more and earn more as well. It is just exciting to know that I can also sell.
I'm not complaining about it since I'm sure at the end of December the orders will slow down but the items will continuw to ship out so it will all even up. I just didn't want to get too excited about the items still to go out and then find out that I was mistaken.
And congratulations on your good month Bill- maybe on tomorrow's report you'll find out you sold something really expensive on your higher commission rate
You actually bring up a good point. Although it's unlikely, Amazon COULD play a bit with deliveries to minimize commission tier levels of their associates. I googled but did not find anyone analyzing this in a way worth linking to.
I've seen a lot of hubs on Black Friday and Cyber Monday and I've done several myself. I actually had it flagged because it was categorized wrong. I think that brings up the issue that we don't have a specific hubtopic...
Amazon earnings are updated for yesterday and I had my best day!! Seen over $800 of items ordered, once these ship it will take me into the 6.5% category. Probably small fish to some of you but it will help me break my...
anyone ever camp out to get the great deals on Black Friday?is it really worth it?do you wait til cyber Monday and hope to snag a deal?which is the best way to go fr a good price/ what was your greatest buy?
There is a significant traffic increase for Hubpages - a 38% increase in one day! Was there an algorithm update? I happened black Friday - Squidoo did not see an increase.....http://www.quantcast.com/hubpages.com
