Any good news regarding sales? I don't have any Halloween based articles so was just curious if others got a boost in those particular pages the past week or so?

I don't have any Halloween articles here, so I'm interested to know too.

Halloween is great from early September through yesterday, with traffic really picking up the first two weeks of October.

Ok you're the right person to reply :) You've got a lot of those articles.

I had loads!  And yes, it was absolutely brilliant, but then Sandy hit.

It looks like things aren't being shipped at the moment, as my 'orders' appear to have frozen without switching to 'sales'.

Amazon has not updated today., that's for sure.  Could be the store, but could just be time of year.  They get notoriously slow this time of year.

My Halloween sales were better than ever.  Get better every year.  Best October on Amazon ever.

My Vigilink suddenly woke up this morning too.  It's been showing nothing for days, then suddenly all the gaps got filled in.

Some companies are late because of Hurricane Sandy.  Some because it is the end of the month.  Some are just late. Tongue Out

You know how volume dictates the commission percentage on Amazon?  Is that from when they were ordered or moved onto the earnings sheet?

I've now got six items on orders, which aren't on earnings.  They'd knock me into the next percentage bracket if they went over today.

I need one more sale to reach the 6% for this month. SInce I began getting sales this is the firs time I haven't reached 6%. But, I did get my first cheque mailed yesterday from amazon!! 

Nothing special this time around for halloween as I have just one article based on that, it got lots of traffic and some clicks though.

Don't forget; if you're regularly struggling to reach the higher payout brackets, you might be better off using VigLink.

They give you 80% of their revenue, which translates to 6.8% (80% of 8.5%, the highest tier). You'd have to ship more than 110 products per month to reach a better commission tier by yourself.

They count when they ship Jo.
