This should be of interest to any of you out there who use the Amazon Associates program which is Amazon’s affiliate program.
For the entire month of November Amazon is offering a 12% commission rate as opposed to the normal 4% commission rate. This great commission rate is available for you the entire month of November, only catch is it’s only good for Native ads. If your using text ads or links you’ll still get your normal 4% commission, however any sales or referrals that you send to Amazon using the Native ads you will receive 12%.
This is actually pretty big news. Amazon sells plenty good on their own, they really don’t need us affiliates anymore now that they are a household name so it’s pretty cool they are offering this deal. I imagine they are trying to push more affiliates into using Native ads.
A common complaint among Amazon Affiliates in the past was the low commission at 4% considering most Amazon purchases are smaller so this may get some of you interested in using it.
I’d love if you guys report back and share some tips with using Native ads as well as how you wound up doing on your November commissions.
