My First Amazon Sale !

Last Update: August 04, 2019

Happy Sunday, dear Wealthy Affiliate Community !

I haven't been active on here in the recent few months due to family issues, although I wasn't so much active on the platform in general from the very beginning of joining Wealthy Affiliate.

The purpose of my post today is that I have logged into my Amazon account yesterday and to my surprise, I saw that my bodybuilding website made its first sale ! Of course, the commission is not so high, but this is proof that what we learn here at Wealthy Affiliate really works !

Still, I have some doubts whether it is really a sale/commission or not? As this happens for me for the first time, am I reading the information right? Please, look at the screenshot of my account here:

Also, as you can see from the screenshot, the sale came as a result of 11 clicks and the conversion rate is 9.09%. Is it good, is it bad, is it OK ? How the conversion rate is calculated ?

I don't know where to look for the information about what product has been sold. I didn't receive any confirmation email and I can't see this in my Amazon account. Any idea where can I find it ?

What should I do with the commission ? Should I live it in the account or should I claim it into my PayPal account? As always, I will appreciate any help and advice from you !

This is really like a miracle to me! I used to be reading many WA members' blog posts and stories, successful and frustrating ones. As doubting ourselves capacities is something that is pretty much present in our lives, I believed that I will not make my first sale before the sixth month mark.

After joining Wealthy Affiliate in March 2019, I had been working on this website about two months almost every day. I stopped working on it in May mainly because I was feeling like this is not my niche. So, basically, the first sale came from two months of intensive work and two months of doubts without any work.

I still have to decide what to do next. What I know for sure is that regardless the direction I will choose in terms of niche, it anyway will be together with Wealthy Affiliate !

Oh, yes, and I need to work so much with my limiting beliefs !

My best wishes to you all,

Hi - congratulations! Amazon doesn't pay into PayPal. It is either your own bank account or by gift card or check. You need to meet their payout threshold as well, which is $10, (or $100 if requesting a check). You will have to wait a little longer to claim your payment!

Hey, thank you for your comment ! I was thinking there has to be payout threshold, I have to have a eye on their regulations.

Obviously, it is little too early to claim the payment :)) Better concentrate on work !
