    For those who are working with Amazon as an affiliate:

    At what hours does Amazon update the Earnings summary?

    Amazon seems to update your clicks/sale only once a day. That really suck if you ask me. Does anyone know at what hours does they update your stats?

    Cheers,

    Thanks Olbol.

    Can anyone confirm that Amazon update stats at 6 AM for US?

    Yeah, they update after a day, but in my observation, the update time is pretty random.

    They update them whenever they feel like it. If you are lucky you will se an update at 6:30 am central, but there is no time set and sometimes it is 1 or 2 pm and stats are not updated yet.

    It's kinda strange that a big company like that doesnt update stats more often, like every normal cpa/affiliate networks.

    It's really kind of random, but they officially start doing stats processing at 3am EST / 12am PST. Typically, I can see my stats by 5-6am or so EST.

    I have never really paid that much attention to it. I know its a day behind. It sucks kind of like the pay being 60 days behind, but hey what can you do.
