1-Week Old Website: 19 Clicks, 3 Ordered Items. Go Amazon!

Last Update: September 21, 2018

Hey guys,

This post will contain both the question and the success story aspect.

It's been a while since I dealt with Amazon stuff. I decided to create a new website here at WA solely based on Amazon products and I saw that 3 items have been ordered from Amazon.

I can't recall exactly but does that mean that I will only see the exact amount of my commissions once these items get shipped?

Only two things do not get paid on Amazon, it's wine and Amazon gift cards, which were not in the list of ordered items.

Now to the success story part.

My new website has been up for only a few days and it already started working.

Man, I forgot how it feels to get items ordered from Amazon!

Even though I receive my residual commissions from Wealthy Affiliate, I am still glad to be done solving some personal matter and being fully back in the business :)

I will work my butt off to make this site work for me full-time.

I hope you guys are doing great and it be great to hear your responses in the comments.

Happy Monday!

I used to wondér the same thing. Then I realized they only pay once the items are shipped. They will also debit your account for any returned items.

I believe these items ordered do not apply to any of the categories that you've mentioned. So I just gotta wait until they get shipped and then I will see the exact earnings made from my new website

You can calculate what your commission will be. Just click on the fee schedule and find the category the items purchased fall under.

I have attached a screen shot of the Amazon.com fee schedule. I think most are using this one now. You can find the tab just under the reports tab when you are in reports.

Hi Tanja, long time!
The items got shipped the next day, so I didn't have to wait tooo much to see my commissions. Yay
Also, I wanted to calculate but wasn't sure which category exactly the items fell into.
TanjaRita Premium
That's great! I refer to the fee schedule often when something gets ordered from a category I am not familiar with and I am curious about the commission.

I will keep that it mind if anything. Thanks again! :)

Yes, the items have to ship before you get credited for your commission.

Some items ship faster than others. That's one reason a lot of people specifically promote prime eligible items, no waiting around for another company to fulfill the order.

Makes sense, thank you!
