Only took me almost 14 months but have finally reached payout which I'd set to $1000 to save on extortionate bank charges! When can I expect the cheque? February?
Congrats Izzy - $1000 is an amazing amount of money to have made on Amazon!
Thanks everyone! I'm so happy
Skyfire, Amazon US. UK payout at only £25 and straight into my bank account so no charges. I've only earned about £5 on it so far anyway. Amazon US send a dollar cheque that banks charge to change.
Yes, nice one! I have also made payout but I set mine rather lower, at $150. Could really do with the money and $1K is going to take me rather a while
Well done Izzy - that is fantastic. By my reckoning you should get that at the end of Feb - as I got my September payout at the very end of November.
Have a big glass / bottle of wine to celebrate.
Wow what a super way to have done it, Izzy!
You might better go ahead and send me the Complete Beatles box set from your earnings. I'm beginning to think UW isn't going to get me one from her good fortune. Are foreign women always so tight with their money?
LOL, you'd have a better chance of squeezing blood out of a stone that getting us Scots to part with our money!
Thanks everybody for your good wishes, and yes I have cracked open the vino - even splashed out - got the 86 cents carton instead of the usual 55 cent muck.
Well the shop had run out of the cheaper stuff, that's why!
wow this is great news, congrats! i have join amazon about 1 year and got several clicks but have earn any money yet, its a total bummer
So nice to hear you made payout, and a big one at that! Nice way to end the year isn't it!
Ah, just in time for the warmer weather! It's freezing here just now! Thank God for hot flashes or I'd turn into a block of ice! lol
Thanks everyone who commented, and to those who haven't reached payout yet, it will happen if you write Amazon orientated hubs. Although I've got over 300 hubs, relatively few are sales hubs, and of those few there are even fewer that actually successful.
But each and every successful sales hub is a gateway.
If it sends the buyer through to Amazon the chances are you may well get some kind of sale out of it, even if it isn't what you are targeting.
So get writing sales hubs!
That's great, Izzy! However, I might point out that it only took me about 3 months to get my first Amazon payout. All $10 of it.
I think you're just a leetle bit ahead of me here, but I'll get there one day. In 10 years of so, maybe.
Congratulations izzy!!! Thats a wonderful amount. I havent got anywhere near that! (yet!) Congratulations!!! Definitely something to look forward to in the new year!!!
wow! great ... Can you give tips? so that I can succeed like you, it's almost a year I sell amazon products, but I earn very little. I was almost desperate ..
Thanks to everybody for your good wishes. I also passed 200,000 views yesterday too!
WOW Izzy - you are on a roll! Congrats and enjoy the vino!
Congrats on all your accomplishments, Izzy! To answer your original question, yes, earnings from this month will be paid out in February.
So with the delayed mail that we always get here, I can expect the cheque around the second week in March, then it is probably another month to cash it (well it takes them 21 - 28 days to cash a £ cheque!). Still...maybe one day I'll be getting a monthly cheque off them, then the wait won't matter!
Hi Izzy. I am in the Uk too. I set my payout at $100, and I get charged £3 for each Amazon cheque. I just wish they did direct deposit. But it only took my cheque 24 hours to clear,so I wasnt too bothered.
Hey Laura - £3 is a great rate - I got charged £9 at both Lloyds and Barclays. Where do you bank?
Well done you That's a nice big fat cheque to look forward to!
That's so super Izzy! Definitely break out the wine and I'll join you since I bought a bottle of porteno from Argentina. I'm impressed that you waited until you got a $1000, I don't think I could wait that long myself. Congratulations!
I have mine set to direct deposit and receive the money in my account every month around the 29th thru the 31st, months end for both Amazon and Google Adsense!
The Santander here in Spain want minimum €15 (£12.50) to cash a dollar cheque. Stick with the Northern Bank - they sound great!
Wow, I love to hear this stuff. I'm very new here and can't imagine making even one sale. But, I'll keep writing and remembering posts like this for inspiration!

Had to check their site to see that I had earned enough - worried the payment in euros might have been raised with the dropping euro against the dollar - but hey I've hit payout!!

hi. I was so happy last night after posting in a thread and noticed my score of 100 so I went to check google ad sense to see if I had reached my goal of making it to $100. by Aug. 31-- and I did! and I reached my Aug. goal with Amazon. I looked at the ad sense report closely to see which...

I've been a member for two years but wrote the majority of my hubs over the last two months after I finally got motivated to do so. $100 is not very much to be honest but it just goes to show that making money online is possible when I really didn't believe it at the beginning! Now I...

It took three months, I guess that's not bad! Now if I could just meet that threshold every month I'd be thrilled.Today's my wedding anniversary, so this is a nice "gift"!

Well I checked my account this morning and it's just over $100, so I should be getting my first check from Google next month!

After 9 months on HP, I got that email we all anxiously wait for: I made my first payout and it was sent to Paypal. Woohoo!! Yesss! After a lot of stress, hard work, 43 hubs, and 30,300+ views, I can breathe a sigh of relief. Yes, I have a ways to go but this milestone calls for a celebration....
