    I have been preparing for Black Friday promotion for amazon offers and i saw that out of 1500 clicks via websites send to Amazon, the conversion rate is about 1.5%.

    Usually Amazon conversion rates are in double figure range somewhere about 15-20% but having 1.5% conversions and that too during Black Friday seems unusual. On Amazon discussion boards, some complain that the new reporting layout has messed up sales tracking etc?

    Do anyone of you also have witnessed such drastic conversion drops since November?

    I don't know why or how you think amazon conversions are in double figures usually. I know mine are NOWHERE near that level and I've been using them for years. I guess it will depend on numerous factors but that seems UNBELIEVABLY high to me. I am typically between 2 and 4% month in and month out. For Nov. so far I am at about 3%. And the dollar level is a little higher than usual but that is normal for this month due to holidays. I'm seeing lots of purchases for stuff that I normally don't see so it's obviously Christmas shopping. I have not heard anyone complaining about messed up sales reporting or lower than usual sales. I definitely like the current daily sales reporting so you get an idea of how you're doing throughout the day.

    Sorry...But business as usual with me and Amazon. Hope it works out for you.

    Amazon had a great conversion rate when i promoted in December last year. See the image below (28% conversion rate)

    However this time many are complaining of the amazon tracking, see at the discussion board

    Replace "xx" with "tt" above
