    Sorry for this newbie question (s) but I gotta ask somebody.

    Here is the deal, I started with Amazon Associates affiliate program almost 2 months ago just to see what's this all about and I've earned $45 in February. But I just realized that people ordered 279 (this will be approx $500) products in March so far, so I guess I can expect cheque from Amazon. My question is

    1. When do they send those cheques?
    2. Are they gonna send me what was my treshold ($100) or everything that is on my aff account?
    3. Is there anyone here being successful with Amazon associates, is $500 in 2nd month good number?

    With that kind of attitude problem I'm not surprised that people don't want to answer you - plus you have 448 posts and these questions are very basic - so I suggest your trying to sell something or have some other motive than what your claiming.

    * its clear on Amazon Affiliate that you get paid in 60 days after month end -- your in another country so probably takes longer to get a paper check
    * the threshold is $10 - so you will get $40 or whatever it was - then the following month whatever that was -- I use direct debit (so theres a chance check threshold is $100 Im not 100% sure on that)
    ----> would take you 20 seconds to check for your country how its done.
    * $600 a month is fairly standard with Amazon - most people can do that easily --> but moving above that level requires some thought and a strategy.

    Hi Danny, yeah I know all about the treshold, I was just wondering what kind of expirience people have about these cheques, cause I never worked with that kind of payment.
    Yes, my post is kinda noobish even though I have 450 posts case I was never into afiliate programs, I am spending 90% of my time with content writing services.

    No, no other motive, I ain't selling crap here, just a plain noobish question. It's just a field of IM that I never tried so I was surprised to see 279 sales with couple of hours of work. I guess I am in the wrong section of IM:) Anyway, thanks for the info, and your time.

    1. When do they send those cheques?


    Ans- It is clearly stated there on their site that cheques would be sent after 60Days from the end of the month if you reach payment threshold , so as to make up for returned goods , etc




    2. Are they gonna send me what was my threshold ($100) or everything that is on my aff account?

    Ans - If today was the last day of the month , they would send you everything in your account 60 days from now , Now take note that if you started selling on Amazon in January and made about $10 in advertisement sales , and in febuary made more than $500 , when your first cheque comes in April it would be January earnings that would be displayed on the cheque , the Feb earnings would come in the following month


    3. Is there anyone here being successful with Amazon associates, is $500 in 2nd month good number?


    Ans - For me i wouldn't say i was successful , I was able to make up to $2,000 in sales and about $167 in advertising revenue in eleven days this feb , and yes this is my first month with them . The reason why i said i said i wasn't successful was because i saw a video here on BHW where some Lady cashed out close to $34,000 . That blew my mind away and motivated me to become an affiliate .
