How to Boost Amazon Associates Commissions
Are you a Amazon Associates affiliate? It’s one of the most reliable and popular affiliate programs on the web. You can make a commission from 4% to 8.5% for each customer you refer to Amazon. 4% rate is really not bad if you refer someone who buy a laptop or digital SLR on a price range $3000 or more. And Amazon is the most trustable brand, people are more willing to shop with them online. As a result, you have a bigger chance to earn referral fee. Once you refer customers to Amazon, they take care of order processing, collecting the money, and the shipping. There is nothing further work you need to handle. Anyway, we are not going to discuss about why you need to be an affiliate of Amazon or the reasons you should join Amazon Associates on this post. Here we would introduce a few WordPress plugins and Amazon store scripts to boost your revenue with almost zero effort.
