Concretely, you will be able to make affiliation with all Amazon items: high technology, food, sports equipment etc.
How will it work with the Amazon affiliate program?
When Amazon validates your affiliate, you just need to log in to the Amazon affiliate interface. The company will suggest the appropriate tools to help you track your sales, observe the items you have sold, and even suggest products to promote on your website.
You will be able to use the search engine inserted in the affiliate area to find new products. However, it is better to surf in Amazon itself to discover attractive products.
Three important things to know about Amazon affiliate program
As soon as you come across a product that you like and that you would like to promote, you will discover at the top of the site a header that wasn’t there before. This header will help you to have :
A long or short link.
A clickable image customized to scale.
Text + clickable image.
Of course, these three elements will help you to continue the affiliation. You just need to insert them in your website to promote the product. It is up to you to decide which option you will use to get the customer to click. As soon as your visitor clicks on the link, their cookie will fill up and reveal that the customer came to Amazon because of you! If the customer chooses other items when ordering, you’ll earn a commission based on their entire shopping cart. The cookie will remain valid for 24 hours… But beware, if the visitor clicks on an affiliate link other than yours, the affiliate will pocket the commission.
So, to receive your commission on Amazon, all your work consists in seducing the visitor, pushing him to click and buy in the shortest possible time. Then the commission will be transferred to your account, otherwise you will receive an Amazon gift certificate.
When will commissions be collected?
You will receive them two months after ordering the products. In other words, if you sell 6 products in December 2019, you won’t earn the commissions on those products until February 2020.
Why the delay? Simply because, if the buyer returns the item, you will receive no commission! Amazon allows this 30-day return period.
But we’re still going to end on an optimistic note. Please be aware that you are not responsible for the delivery or the product. In fact, you are only the person who promoted the product, nothing more.
Therefore, you will lose nothing by trying this adventure. At least, you’ll be able to make ends meet.
