My post shows why your Amazon affiliate account has clicks but no earnings.
Amazon Affiliate Account Not Showing Earnings
#1. Customer Cancelled Their Order
When a customer purchases on Amazon. They have the option to cancel.
When a visitor to Amazon cancels after making a purchase, there is a click on your account but no earnings.
Sometimes customers receive their items but want to return them.
It appears on your account as a returned item. You do not earn a commission on returned items.
#2. Amazon Can’t Fulfil The Customer’s Order
Once Amazon receives an order, they start shipping the items to the customer. Occasionally, Amazon has no stock and can not fulfill the order.
The item is sent to the customer once it becomes available. After shipment, you earn a commission.
Amazon also allows customers to pre-order selected products. Such as computer games or movies.
You get a click on your account, but you don’t earn a commission if the item is not shipped.
Once the customer receives the item after launch day, you earn a commission.
#3. Non-Commission Item
Amazon affiliates can not use their links to buy on Amazon. This rule also applies to family and friends.
Amazon deems this as an unofficial discount. Should you ask friends or family to purchase an Amazon product using your affiliate link, Amazon won’t pay you.
Your affiliate account could get canceled if friends and family purchase items from Amazon using your link.
When Amazon decides an affiliate has used their link to buy, Amazon won’t pay a commission.
Your Amazon Affiliate Account Has Earnings But No Clicks
When visitors put items into their shopping basket but don’t check out, Amazon assigns a 90-day cookie.
You earn a commission if the visitor returns to pay for the goods within 90 days.
You see the commission payment but no click.
How Often Does Amazon Update Affiliate Accounts?
Amazon Affiliate accounts are updated once every 24 hours.
When Do Amazon Affiliates Get Paid?
Amazon pays affiliates on the first of each month. Payments take 60 days.
To ensure you get paid on time. Select your preferred payment method and complete your tax information.
The Amazon Affiliate program is one of the leading affiliate programs. It is free to join. There are thousands of products to promote.
If you have clicks but have no earnings, here’s why.
- Number one – The visitor you sent to Amazon purchased an item and then canceled. Or they returned the item later.
- Number two – The item is out of stock. There is a delay in sending the product to the customer for out-of-stock items. Affiliates get paid after the customer receives the product they ordered. Amazon also allows customers to pre-order selected products. Amazon affiliates must wait for the item to reach the customer before getting paid.
- Number three – The item is a non-commission product. If Amazon thinks you let family and friends use your affiliate link, they won’t pay you a commission. I recommend you refrain from doing this. Amazon could cancel your account.
