What's new in reporting?
The new Reporting Center is designed to give you valuable insights to easily manage and optimize your performance. Key features include:
  • Enhanced graphical interface for ease of use and understanding key information
  • Near real-time reporting for orders and bounties to help optimize campaign performance and conversion throughout the day
  • Earnings breakdown by program – See earnings from advertising fees and bounties at a glance in the Summary tab and see further details in the Fees and Bounties tab
  • New download capabilities, making it easy to download and share your data

When are the reports updated?
Reports for Ordered Items and Bounties(if applicable) are updated in near real-time, which means most orders will be reported within an hour of being placed. You can see new activity in your account throughout the day. Your Earnings Report is current as of the previous day. For example, if you’re looking at your Earnings Report on Tuesday, you’ll see your earnings through Monday.


Why is the number of Ordered Items different from Shipped Items?
Some orders customers place may not get shipped. This could happen for various reasons, such as order cancellations within the same day or inadequate inventory levels.

How can I find out more about a specific product from the Fees Report?
You can click on the product name in the Fees Report and it will take you to the product detail page on Amazon.com. In addition, you can get the link directly from the listing.

How can I find all of my previous reports?
Data from all of the previous reports – Reports, Earnings Report, Orders Report, Misc. Referrals, Link-Type Report, Daily Trends, Tracking ID Summary Report - are included in the new reporting format in a simplified manner. Previous Earnings Reports, Orders Reports, Link-Type Reports, Daily Trends and Tracking ID Summary report data is now available in the Fees tab. Misc. Referrals data is now available in the Bounties tab.

Can I use the previous reports?
For a limited period, you can use the previous reports by clicking on ‘Return to Classic Reporting’ link on the top right corner.

Why are some of the transactions marked as 'ineligible for fees'?
Per our operating agreement, certain conditions and exclusions exist that may disqualify a purchase for earning advertising fees. Refer to Section 7 in the Associates Program Operating Agreement for more details.

Is it possible that I see data mismatch between classic and new reporting?
Once we complete processing your daily earnings, your earnings data should always match between classic and new reports. For orders data, the new reporting system processes orders and cancellations at real time, whereas the classic reports use an end-of-day batch processing. Hence, there might be slight differences in your orders data between new and classic reporting based on the date range and time of the day you are running those reports for.

How much historical data can I access in the new reports?
You can access data starting from April 2014 in the new reporting. If you want to keep older data, you should use classic reporting to download it.
