Amazon Commission rates

Last Update: November 22, 2017

The holiday season is here! It is the best time to push the sales as everyone is in the shopping mode.

I am quite new at the Amazon associate, and when I started my website I did not really think about Amazon associate, but soon I found most of my promotions are through Amazon products. Well, they have the most selections, so it was natural for me to do that.

Very recently I realized that Amazon commission has the different rate based on the category. I don't know about you, but I did not know it! I thought everything was 8% commission (and that's what I have "heard" from someone). I recently got a commission, but it was 1%! So I did a little research and found this awesome table.

So I decided to share this with you. If you are still in the process of niche selection and considering to promote products at Amazon, this may help you what kind of niche you want to select to make money...

Have a happy holiday!

The new commission rates schedule was released sometime in March/April this year.

It's the latest one indeed. The '8% commission' is most likely from Aliexpress affiliate program.
