I ordered something in November but it didn't show up on your list, and didn't get charged until December. It didn't show up on your December list either, and it was over 100 bucks.

I hate hearing stories like that. People on gametz sometimes tell tales like that too. It's hard to know what happened. As far as I know, I have no way to debug it or any recourse with Amazon. And, otherwise, most people report that their stuff does go through most of the time. Some people say they've never had it miss. Despite the problems, it does bring in a lot of money (especially at GameTZ -- mostly because it's a lot more people).

My make-up (It's discontinued and I can't find anything I like better. I won't be able to get it soon.), can-opener (recommend!), and slippers. I was kicking myself two days ago when I put in an order and forgot to use the link. Maybe cookies. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Just checked. I placed the order on 01/30. I'm guessing your report probably covered the full month of January, so I guess I messed up.

Oh. It looks like it is based on ship/charge date. That makes sense. There is still hope! smiley:::grin

#136 posted February 2, 2016 at 3:21pm (EST)  
Thanks!

I think it goes in when it ships and you get charged. And, it can take a day or two to show up in my reports. That's why I do it on the 2nd of the month.

I can also look at orders vs. earnings and I can see stuff that was bought buy hasn't gone through yet... I don't see anything new here... so, maybe it didn't work. Oh well.

I get reports of stuff missing like that sometimes. I wish I had a better response. Mostly, I don't know what went wrong and don't have a way to track it down as far as I know. So, it's a mystery.

Sometimes, theories develop where we suspect the buyer didn't do it quite right. Like, you maybe you shouldn't do it from your wishlist or you have to click the link here, then immediately buy it, etc. Though, I've also had people say they didn't do those things and it still worked. So, I really don't think that explain it in most cases.

I often suspect another site's affiliate code may have gotten credit for some reason in some cases. What amazon says is that once an affiliate link is clicked, anything bought for 24 hours should be credited. So, possibly, you happened to have clicked another site's link (this can be subtle and hard to detect), maybe that stuck with you for 24 hours, even after you clicked the link here? Something like that? But, again, it's all speculation and hard to know what's going on. Maybe Amazon's system is buggy? Though, they are also very generous with commissions.

Even if not all stuff shows up, it still helps a lot overall too. $71.93 is great! So, I hope people don't get discouraged.

I've started accessing Amazon only through the SC link, so I don't think it's that. Nothing I bought was in my wish list; however, one thing that comes to mind is that I tend to store things in my cart until I have a large enough order for free shipping. Once the order is large enough, I submit it. I wonder if things that were stored on previous days don't count.

I agree, it's fantastic commission.
bill Bronze Star Survey Creator
#146 posted March 3, 2016 at 11:20am (EST)  
Yeah, maybe if it sits in your cart for more than 24 hours it doesn't work.

Here's a page at amazon that talks about it: https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates... Actually, it sounds like it should still work and the cart will last up to 90 days. So yeah, unclear!

#147 posted March 4, 2016 at 8:31am (EST)  
I always click the amazon SC link after my cart is full, then check out, even if I got to amazon through the link - the SC link is my shortcut button, so it's the only one I use.
