Is something wrong with my Amazon account

    I sold 12 Amazon items last month and earned over $12 in commission. It may sound a bit odd but this was my best month ever with Amazon in the last 14 months. I got 4% commission for just 1 item and 6% for all the remaining 11. I though you needed to sell 8 items before moving to 6% tier. Is something  wrong with my Amazon account or am I missing something?

      If you sold 12 items, you got 6% on all 12 items. As soon as hit that magic sales number...is it 8 sales?...can't remember, everything you sell that month goes up to the higher commission rate.

      Edit to add - electronic goods stay on 4% as that is the maximum rate for them.

    Ironically I just posted the Amazon commission tier here:

    The 6% tier starts at 7 items.

      You did, I should have gone looking for it.

      Even on a plunged account I reach the first tier easily and never remember where it is exactly.

      I was so close with AmazonUK. They start at 5%, go to 5.5% after about 20 sales, then 6% starts at 51. Never been there.

      November I got 50 sales....so close!

      PS that's mostly from my own sites, not here.
