I don't currently have any Amazon Ads or links on my site.
My site currently receives virtually zero traffic (~ 30 visits per week - and I suspect most/all of these are robots). I don't currently promote or develop the site.
No. 1 son has said he wants a Kindle for his birthday. It occured to me that maybe I could set up something on my site so that we could initiate the purchase through a link on the site and reclaim the commission.
Perhaps some of you guys could help with the following:
1) Does Amazon provide some sort of affiliate link that would allow me to do this?
2) Would it be legal/legitimate to use it in this way?
3) What sort of commision would be paid?
4) How easy is it to set it up?
The answers to 3) and 4) may mean it is not worth the trouble. If this is the case, whose site should I visit to initiate the purchase? (please form an orderly queue)
You would almost certainly run afoul of Amazon's "no personal orders" rule--which would not cause you to get booted, but would mean you would earn nothing.
If you could figure out a way around that rule, it still wouldn't do you much good--I believe that Amazon is paying full commission on the Kindles, but if the Kindle costs 100 quid, that would mean 5 quid in commission. And you don't get paid until you've earned 25.
So it would be great if as Ian suggested you would buy via my site! There are generic links to all the Amazons I belong to on this page:
