The Amazon Associate Program is the official affiliate program for Amazon.
This platform allows online marketers, bloggers, and affiliate marketers to earn money by promoting any of the many products available on Amazon to their readers.
This is how it works:
- You send your readers to Amazon (through your affiliate link).
- The reader makes a purchase.
- You make a commission on the sale.
Whenever you send a customer to Amazon, your affiliate link will be in the URL and every purchase he/she makes, you earn credit for it.
The best thing about the Amazon Associates Program is that it doesn’t matter what the customer buys, you still get paid.
They don’t even have to buy the product you referred them to, as long as you’ve sent them, whatever they buy, you will get credit on.
Your affiliate links are valid for 24 hours and if they add the item(s) to their cart, you have 30 days till your link becomes invalid. Fear not though, most often people buy their products in less than 30 days.
This only means one thing; the earning potential here is incredible.
