Chris, I have found that if there is any link (however tenuous) to family, friends, work colleagues then somehow (dont know how) Amazon will find out. If that is the case be wary they will not allow this to happen more than a few times.

There is a contact number on the Amazon Associates contacts which will allow you to ring and query what has happened. They will then tell you if they feel it is perceived to be "your instruction" and will tell you they wont pay. The fact you know the person has received the goods would indicate you have asked someone to purchase.

If you dont know them then it is worth a call because as you say your link may not be working... good luck :)

Hi - your commission will show up as soon as the item is dispatched. Some items don't attract commission, such as alcohol or gift cards. You also don't receive commission if you bought something yourself, or any of your friends or family did, as this is not permitted.

Need to wait for the buyer to receive the purchased product, if there is a return, the commission will be deducted; Amazon's system will periodically generate your Summary for This Month, and then you can see your earned commission in the Amazon affiliate background , Total Items Shipped, Total Earnings, Total Ordered Items.

I see all that but no commission and I know one of the persons that received their orders but still no showing of any earnings. Is it possible something is messed up on my links? Maybe I didn't sell enough yet? Confused!
