i just logged into my Amazon account and was excited to see I had made 3 sales yesterday. However, I didn't seem to have earned much. When I checked I had sold one item for $5.83, one for $0.80 and one for $0.01!! I think that must be some kind of record for lowest sale ever!
I'm not complaining though as 3 items does push me closer to going up a tier on the comission for the month. There is no such thing as a bad sale.
You hit the nail on the head. I've made a couple of sales for only 20 cents (some kind of plumbing fitting) that got me only a penny, but it helps bring the commission rate up.
I push both cheap and expensive items with just that in mind. That 20 cent sale may push me into the next tier, whereupon the $200 drill somebody just had to have is suddenly worth $4 more than it was.
As you say, it's all good!
Those 1 cent sales show up once in a while. You have the right attitude focusing on the number of items sold helping your payout percentage.
yeah,a 1 cent sale would not make me happy....luckily it's not always the case.
Don't feel alone, I just had a $0.01 sale on eBay! Can't wait to see the commission break out on that one. Perhaps I'll get a bread crumb!!!
Don't indulge in the bread crumb! If you eat one, you know you're not going to be able to stop, and, with a $0.01 sale, it's not going to be a very big one at that!
I can't even be an Amazon affiliate since I'm in one of the states that passed some stupid law against it. I don't know why. I can't do ebay either since I don't have my own website. Oh, well....Does being an affiliate for either of those pay off much?
Victoria, there was a recent announcement that HP is unrolling an E-bay program for everyone in October. This will mean that almost everyone can sign up, as far as I know.
As far making money on Amazon, I guess some people do very well. For me, I have never made payout yet and I've been at it for 10 months. From what I've read, you really need to focus on product hubs to make Amazon sales.

At last! I have finally had my first Amazon sale. It took 384 click but I'm finally there, my conversion rate is now 0.26! Yay.Weirdly the first item I sold has nothing to do with the items I have put on my Hubs, but I'm not complaining. A sale is a sale.

We have another thread connected to this, but no-one from the staff side has responded. The recent changes in the structure of Amazon commission seem to have had a detrimental affect. While the number of sales has not decreased, earnings have halved this month.89 shipped sales (103 total sales so...

Earnings in Hubpages are related to sales that have been made through ads displayed in our articles. The Ad programs, Hubpages and we, the authors are all waiting that purchase to take place. But as a newbie in this entire scenario, I am clueless about the way it all happens. I cannot find any link...

Are you showing any Ebay sales since May 26th? I get regular ebay sales, everyday or at the very least every three days or so. My dashboard is not showing any Ebay sales since May 26th. I find that a bit odd. I contacted HP and am awaiting a response.

I am self published, so I add amazon modules to my hubpages where ever they are relevant. Lately I've noticed that my sales on Amazon don't line up with my royalties on hubpages. I can see a clickout for each sale, but out of the last 10+ sales on my Amazon Author account, only...
