Sales Made But No Profit For Me?

Discussion in 'Amazon' started by LuckySamurai, Feb 2, 2013.

    Hi,

    I have 2 confirmed and shipped sales. I promoted an item through an online message board, basically someone asked where they could buy this item and I searched on Amazon and gave them my link. It has been 3 months and the sales are both confirmed and not refunded or anything, yet, I have absolutely no balance.

    Why could this be?

    Strange. The figures usually show up after shipping. Maybe if they used your pc to order then Amazon is against buying from your own link or giving your links to friends and relatives so they may get discount. analyze your case with these ideas.

    No they did not use my PC. There was a discussion about this particular item on a forum and I decided to find it for them with my unique link. 2 people then bought it.

    How big was the sale? Amazon has a limit before they send a check. Did you go to "Account Settings" and then clicking "View your payment history", do you see any money owed there or any money being taken away? You should see some money there if someone purchased a product using your amazon link.

    They could have also clicked another affiliate link in the process or been using a browser with cookies disabled. I've had both before when sendings links to friends. Don't sweat it you'll get more sales eventually.
