How to Do Affiliate Marketing on Amazon

I am Ayush Chudasama and I am a content writer. In the last year, I have written many articles and blogs.



Amazon has a lot of advantages when it comes to affiliate marketing. It has a huge product base and sells almost anything you can think of, so you can promote all sorts of products. It's also got a pretty good affiliate program, called Amazon Associates. It makes it easy for other websites to promote specific products on the site and get paid for it - up to 10% commission. Here's how you can use Amazon Associates to do affiliate marketing on your blog or website.

The Amazon Associates Program.

The Amazon Associates program is a way for Amazon to help you promote its products. You link your website or blog to an Amazon product listing, and when a visitor clicks through and makes a purchase, you earn a commission on that sale.

If you are interested in being an affiliate marketer, just sign up with the program here on the official site. It's free to join and easy to do! Once signed up with the program, all you need is an account set up on Amazon (which is also free). Then, connect your site or blog by following some simple instructions provided by them:

  • Signing Up: To get started as an Associate, go here and click “Sign Up” at the top right corner of this page. You will be taken through several steps before being directed back over here where we'll review what happened next!

How To Build An Affiliate Marketing Website On Amazon.

  • Build a website on your domain.

  • A few key points to note about Amazon’s affiliate program (.co. the UK).
  • The UK affiliate program is generally less powerful than its US counterpart due to fewer people buying from Amazon in that country and less competition for product keywords in the UK market (e.g., “laptops” vs “laptop computer” for the same product). This means it can take longer for you to make sales and grow your site, but it also means that if you do succeed, fewer people are competing with you for commissions in the UK market than there would be if you were working on sites targeted at US customers.
  • Amazon pays out by cheque or via direct deposit (check/EFTPOS) once per month based on earnings during the previous month's activities; so even though they say payments will be made within two weeks of each sale made through their system, keep track of how many sales you've made so far this month as well as how much commission those sales should earn before making any withdrawals from your account into another bank account or credit card (unless otherwise specified).
