    I would contact amazon. Thats ridiculous.

    Only thing i would ask is whether you was using any tools or services to gain additional visitors / clicks. If everything your doing is natural, there is something seriously wrong with it and you need to contact amazon asap

    your probably using twitter or something

    I sell at 4-6% normally - and that's not all that good from what I have seen from others.

    You should contact them but if you're using untargeted traffic remember that their cookie only last 24 hours.

    Mine was just 5449 clicks with 4 orders and $5.46 earnings :p LOL with insanely low conversion rate 0.07%. I was 6% last year but I think amazon reset the Referral Rate each year. anyone can confirm this?

    hey meathead1234,
    I am a HUGE supporter of yours in BHW, but
    in all honesty, I think that it is fair of the member
    to ask a question about Amazon.
    This is a question that arises frequently, and it is
    always good to see a fresh response on it.

    To be honest, I have seen many threads started on other more
    frivilous issues, than this one, and i hope that more members here
    will be encourages to post their views in the thread, rather than
    feel discouraged by possibly being flamed by offering their 2 cents worth.

    I am not picking a fight with you, i have too much respect for you,
    becuase of your contributions to BHW, but I really hope that you get my point here. thats all.

    I got 14630 hits this month and 4 sales! What the hell. I'm SO tired of Amazon clearly not paying out properly....

    It was meant to be a joke, but perhaps my dry, British humour isn't very good these days :)

    And on a more serious note, the OP should have contacted Amazon first to make sure everything was tracking okay. If I don't get any conversions on my CPA, I'll contact my AM and make sure it's all tracking. If it's not, then I might come here for help. It's pointless asking about something if it could be a simple tracking issue.

    No offence meant to the OP - it was more a general joke. Been a long week lol.

    You're completely right. But OP would have been to shitting his pants trying to pay rent and used BHW as a last resort lol

    Maybe the traffic your are sending to Amazon is sh%$, completely not targeted.

    Having sent an email to Amazon complaining about this they sent me:

    Thank you for writing to the Amazon Associates Programme.

    Further to your email, I checked one of the links on your website and can confirm that our tracking system works properly. There are no known technical issues at this time.

    Please note that the click statistics, orders reports and the earnings reports are generated by different means.

    Any items ordered via your links will appear on your Orders Report on the date the order was placed but the items will only appear on your Earnings Report once they have been dispatched.

    This may cause a discrepancy between your orders and earnings reports as some items may take longer to dispatch (e.g.: they may be out of stock at the time the order is placed) which will cause a delay in the order showing in your earnings report.

    We can assure you, that all items ordered via your links will be assigned to your Associates ID and earn commissions.

    Regretfully, we will not be able to offer any additional insight or action on these matters.

    Even if it was untargeted, 0 on 10 000 is ridiculous :eek:

    Something went wrong, or the system is reeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaallllllyyyyy delayed :)
