    Couple of days ago I set up my phpBay niche site and there has been 2166 clicks already at these three days, but not a single earning... is this normal?

    It's slot cars toys, you know, those little race cars (brands like scalextric, tyco etc.)

    I've done some pretty heavy promotion with it (social bookmarking etc.) and it's getting quite targeted google traffic already. After checking google analytics I see people come to my site using exact car model as their search term and they spend quite some time in my site and click those products but they just don't buy..

    Is your ebay affiliate ID set up properly? Maybe they are buying but you are not getting the credit for it from ebay

    Did you post on the phpbay board. Wade is good about checking out things don't seem to be working right. That is a lot of clicks to not have any sales.

    One thing to remember about items like this - the market is (often) a little bit younger. There are a lot more dreamers than buyers.

    That's true. And the revenues per product are quite small. But anyways, it's profiting now :)
