How Much Do Amazon Affiliates Pay?

How Much Do Amazon Affiliates Pay?

Amazon is where a lot of new affiliate marketers start out. And with good reason:

  • Amazon's affiliate program (Amazon Associates) is free and easy to join, requiring little more than an existing website
  • People trust Amazon, so if the new affiliate marketer can get visitors to their product review, they are likely to make sales.

The downside is that Amazon's affiliate commission rate is lower than, arguably, anyone else's.

It differs from product type to product type. Amazon Games is far and away the highest at 20%. But it's all downhill from there:

Startup Affiliate Marketers

Often, the actual amount of commission is not that important for the startup affiliate marketer.

All they want to know initially is that the affiliate marketing model that they are building their online business around works.

This is a greater concern to them than how much do Amazon affiliates pay.

Phil is a septuagenarian who has now funded his retirement through internet marketing.

"It's both enjoyable and lucrative," says Phil. "and can literally be run from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. Like many others out there, I initially poured money into the bright, shiny pebbles. The one off, brilliant opportunities that promised an overnight income with the push of a button. The only thing they did, besides suck up funds like a vacuum cleaner, money that I couldn't afford, was take up so much time that I ended up depressed as well as poorer. It wasn't until I learned how to build a genuine business (I now have 22 of them) in both affiliate marketing and e-commerce, using the platform and tools that I tell you about on this website, that I turned it all around. I now make a substantial and sustainable retirement income and I want to teach you how to do the same."
