Changes to the Amazon.com Associates Program
Amazon associates/affiliates received the following notice recently:
We are writing to notify you of some changes to the Amazon.com Associates Program Operating Agreement, which governs your participation in the Amazon Associates Program for Amazon.com. All changes are effective on February 1, 2014. https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/help/operating/compare
And here is my summary of the changes:
- Magazines go from a 25% affiliate commission (fee rate) to none
- Video game console products go from a 4% commission (fee rate) to 1%
Overall this continues a trend by Amazon to steadily reduce their fee rates.
