6 Months Here: Amazon Affiliate Commissions Are Finally Coming In!

Last Update: April 11, 2018

So, I am a week into the 6th months of being here and instantly, I've noticed Amazon Affiliate Commissions are beginning to come in. After recieving my first sale after 3 months and going through a dry patch for a while, I was wondering if things really were going to work but the WA community have removed my doubts once again.

Thankyou for reassuring me that these things take time and it was really surprising for me to randomly see that Amazon sales are coming in as soon as the 6th month mark has come along. Someone actually purchased a $120 meditation bench from my link which I was quite surprised to see.


Look forward to seeing an increase over the next few months but it is nice to know that online money is possible. Another great thing is that my Amazon.com affiliate membership was close to be being cancelled and these few sales have saved my account.

Although it is a small amount of money, it shows a great sign that the system taught here works and apart from quality of your content, time really is a big factor.

For those of you who have been here for a few months and are producing quality content on a regular basis, realise that the development of site trust is key to an increase in traffic and eventually getting sales.

Will keep everyone updated on this journey towards 1 year at WA! :)

That's awesome!! Glad you got these sales... this business is like that, you need to continually produce the quality content with low hanging fruit keywords. Keep it up and you'll see way more sales. :)

Meant that to Josh. Amazon sent me a notice that I could get cancelled as an affiliate if I don't have a sale soon

Yes, they usually say to people that if they don't get a sale within 180 days, they will cancel your account. The ironic thing about it is that it usually takes around that amount of time from starting to your website to eventually see them coming in lol.

Don't worry if you don't make a sale within that time though, it should be fine. They will accept you again but it usually requires you to re-enter all of your affiliate links

I wonder why they set the limit at six months? Surely a year would be a better indicator?
