A client approached me the other day asking me to set up an Amazon Affiliates Store for an electrical goods shop. This is a fairly simple task and doesn’t take too long, so I agreed to do it and it is now ready to go.
The Amazon Affiliate program is one of the longest standing and most respected of affiliate programs on the web. Commission percentages can be around 7% on all sales and with this being backed by Amazons excellent reputation it is an ideal start into the world of affiliate selling on the web.
The Amazon Affiliate Store works in such a way that once set up the products, descriptions and prices are all updated automatically by Amazon. Amazon also of course take care of the order processing, payment and shipping of the products and then simply pay you your commission at the end of each month from any sales your website has made. Of course, nothing is ever quite that easy as you need to make sales and therefore get visitors to your amazon affiliate store first, but if you already have a website with healthy traffic stats then it can be a good way of boosting income.
