For a few years now I have been trying to sell amazon products through my website and haven't had any luck selling anything (not even one product). My account would usually get canceled for not having any sales and then I would eventually create another one and start a new idea. However, a couple days ago I started a Youtube channel and uploaded a video and got a bit of traffic to the video through social media. I was curious if I got any sales and it appears that the stats don't update very often. So I've been checking and checking, and finally this morning it updated and it looks like I have some sales! It shows the following: Earnings Summary Total items shipped 0 TOTAL EARNINGS * $0.00 Orders Summary Ordered items 4 Clicks 9 Yay! But so.... a few questions I was wondering though... 1. How come there are no earnings? Does that just take time? Or do I have to wait until it's shipped first or something? 2. I'm assuming my account is going to be going through a approval process now that I have my first sale. I'm just wondering though, will that be a bad thing if I only have the product listed on Youtube? (and not my website?) 3. Also, for the approval process. Is it a bad issue if none of the sales were actual products that I was selling? It seems like people clicked on my link, and then purchased a different product on Amazon. Thank you!
