    I have used Amazon Affiliates for quite sometime now. But you need to wait at least 3 months before you can get your earnings from the current month.

    I used to use them in 90's on my first web venture - a Geocities website dedicated to The Simpsons. I can't remember ever seeing a check - I think like anything, you need the right traffic i.e those seeking to shop, and lots of it.

    Hi,

    Yes, I do promote Amazon products on my sites.
    What else would you like to know?

    I have never promoted Amazon products on my site. I don't plan on doing so either.

    I used to have pretty good luck with Amazon on a website, but in the U.S. there are a number of states (mine included) that have passed laws that having affiliates in the state makes a company subject to state sales taxes. For that reason, Amazon and some other companies have terminated their affiliate agreements in those states, so I haven't been able to sell Amazon products for a year or so.

    I think promoting newegg products is a lot better than amazon.

    Thanks for your q. well, have visited your site as per your signature and subscribed for free receiving newsletters. But don't start create the 1st page of website regarding its invitation. Just wondering that its 100% free without obligation ?

    I see, it means that tax figure much more than earn of sale from affiliate publishers in those terminated affiliate program states ? Thus, how most of those people at the mentioned states buying things from Amazon ? Do they search products directly through Amazon web site ?

    Good idea, give me some information to start with that new egg website please.

    Why do I have to wait for long such that ? How do you promote it ? Is it good pay for referral comm ?

    It's on the rules. I think it's to confirm every sale that you have made.
    Read more here: https://affiliate-program.amazon.co...soc-center-1&pf_rd_r=&pf_rd_i=assoc_help_main

    Via my blog. I have posted banners of it along with my other advertisements.
    See them in action here: http://www.jefusion.com/

    I think it's just fine. You can choose the minimum 4% commission on everything you have sold, or 4%-8% depending of how many you have sold on a certain month. Please refer more on their FAQ: https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/help/main.html

    Free tools? I don't think you need any "tools" to promote it. If you have a website, a blog or a forum, you can post a banner or widget there so that your visitors may see it and buy from your affiliate link.

    It really depends on the quality of your posts or if someone is interested on clicking your links.
