    So i don't trust Amazon so much so i decided to start make print screens every day on the products that i gain affiliate commission .

    I see that after a few days the products simply disappear from the ordered items list just like in the print screen i've just uploaded.

    All the products are the same ... minus the most expensive ones "handbags and shoes."

    So the question is ... is Amazon stealing our revenue???

    I have taken the picture with the missing products today because i;ve seen that i didnt receive any major income from that items..

    There must be a reason. Have you tried contacting affiliate support about it?

    Stuff like this has been happening too many associates since last summer.

    Almost certainly not intentional, but an issue all the same imo.

    Move on is my attitude (which is what I have done)

    Good luck ;-)

    Those are cancelled orders OP. Your marketing needs to target customers that are actually serious about their needs.

    Could it be the case that both items were returned? If so, you lose the commission from it.

    Do you remember when the product was ordered? Try using date range selecting that particular date. You will find it there. I'm a full-time Amazon affiliate and never faced this issue.

    And it is also possible that the item is returned. Export your order list as an excel file and double check.

    Amazon is not scamming! :)

    If this is the case then they should still remain in the purchased orders table. But it is not...

    Yep i know it was bought on 5 january and yesterday when i looked back at 5 january i see its not anymore just like in the picture.

    For my account, if the item has been returned for a refund then its removed from the purchased orders table.

    No problem at all. I'd still keep an eye on it just incase but its certainly my experience of it.
