Amazon Affiliate Program BooksAffiliate Program Books
Farewell book and e-bloggers - Amazon has updated the fee calendar for its affiliate program.
Amazonia ruled this weekend that they no longer need their partners to increase revenue. Publisher sent an e-mail to web publisher who were part of the Amazon Associate Program this weekend.
With the new system, Amazon waives the option of varying fees. Instead, all our customers receive a lump sum fee according to their product group. Amazon partners still make 4% of Kindles and Fire tables, while vouchers make nothing and books make 4.5%. When the new regulations come into force on 1 March, you can find the new programme here.
As Amazon in the past modified the affiliate program, it was usually simple to understand why. For example, in 2013 Amazon took measures to prevent websites from encouraging free e-book downloading. Last year, Amazon hit the jackpot on free e-book newsletter just before it launched its rival game.
That' their right; Amazon is in business to make a living, and I can see why they made that one. However, I can also predict that this directive amendment will have an effect on websites that depend on Amazon's Affiliate Program for Revenue.
I' ve been gnashing my numbers, and I anticipate losing about a fifth of my Amazon affiliate revenue.
More intelligent blogs will find new revenue streams (perhaps author fees), but many will find that their blogs are no longer really valuable. Amazon Dear Employees, We are pleased to write to inform you of some changes to the Amazon Employee Program as of March 1, 2017. The changes included, but are not limited to: changes in promotion rates, program policy reviews, and billing update.
Employees have reported to us that the ad revenue breakdown has been made more clear, particularly in terms of what qualifies as firm revenue and what qualifies as staggered revenue. The changes make the charging process easier and clearly define what kind of ad revenue you can make by transferring your revenue to Amazon.
As well as the promotional fee for recommending products for sale, keep in mind that you can also make a premium if you direct your traffic to a number of other Amazon sites, such as Prime Video, Prime Music and Kindle Unlimited.
This year we will add extra bunty options and specific actions throughout the year. To see the synopsis of billing changes and other important Associates Program fixes, please visit: https://affiliate-program.amazon. com/help/operating/compare.
