    Hi

    Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere, I did browse around but didnt find too much

    Here is my problem, hope someone can enlighten me.. My amazon associates account is reporting over 100 clicks for the last 2 days.. and no sales... and I know this is the point where people say newbie sickness.. 100 clicks is nothing.. be patient etc etc... but

    My clicks are EXTREMELY targeted and the fact is I know as least 5 of them would have ordered.. that is a fact

    My question is this.... If someone orders via a third party on Amazon, one of the many companies that market on Amazon.. is this reported later? the clicks are there but will the actual sales show up a few days later accounting for confirmation or something like that? Is this normal? Is there a delay between click and sale..???

    Please say yes! Or something is seriously wrong.. I have checked the links, everything is correct and the fact the clicks are showing shows my ID etc is placed correctly.. could the fact that its the weekend make any difference??

    Thanks in advance

    I know this, Amazon affiliate program was the only one I used till few weeks ago. All of my buyers are targeted and I did have a lot of sales. Now, some products get 500+ clicks in a day but I get zero sales. Maybe nobody wanted to buy it, I don;t know.
    Anyway, I syarted working via Shareasale, and I know I had at least 20-30 sales in a day but I got 0 dollars (and I was like you, I thought I made some kind of mistake, but nope I can guarantee Shareasale is a scam, or at least the company that sold products to my buyers)
    So, Amazon is Ok I think, didn't noticed anything wrong there, so I won't search any new affiliate program for now, I am staying with them.
