    It's been a while since I made any amazon sales, finally the ice was shattered; but, even though I sold 2 items (They're ordered) my earnings show as $0. Do they have to be delivered before I get the commission?

      They must be shipped before you will earn from them.

      delivered and not returned.... congratulations, I hope they were sales for a luxury yacht and a private aircraft; I hear the commissions for those are huge.. otherwise good luck on your next few sales, once  they start they keep coming..

        Haha Leanman they weren't just $20 items. However, I did sell two $500 items 2 months back as well as a couple of cheaper items back then. But, the last 2 months fetched me 0 sales.

      I've had good luck with the Amazon program.  I think it depends a lot on the type of content and the target audience.

      Since I write about technical topics most of my readers ad blind but in context Amazon links seems to overcome this issue to an extent.

      I often get commissions for items I'm not even promoting since people tend to buy multiple items at the same time.

        Ah so i suppose people generally come across your hubs when looking for reviews and advice on certain hardware before buying them and already have a half intention to buy them when they arrived at your page anyway?

          Yes, that pretty much sums it up!  Those types of articles seem to convert to sales the most.  It helps if people are already in a buying mood before they reach the article.

        Wow, thats new. So you can get commissions off the entire order? Sweet.

          Yes, Amazon will pay a commission on any other items the customer purchases after clicking your referral link.   It's a nice surprise when it happens , especially if they buy an expensive item!

          Once they click your referral link it sets a cookie which is good for 24 hrs.  You can also get a commission on anything else that person purchases for the duration of the cookies lifetime unless they click someone else's referral link.

          There are some exceptions of course, the link below contains the fine print.
