Amazon Affiliate Commission Rates Not Worth The Work
As all affiliates know Amazon affiliate commission rates dropped to the lowest they could.
Now as an amazon affiliate you`ll have to sell thousands of products to make any money to talk of.People in personal care and other niches only get 1% affiliate commission,my niche is also affected as I`m in skin care so most products I sell also fall unuder personal care which also pay 1%.
I`ve been doing my best to change links to other affiliate networks but this takes time as there are some posts I need to change some to make them work.
While working on a just now, I saw that I made a sale(happy dance) until my head dropped
A $119 sale will not bring me even $5 commission!!! as this is in health category.
What a disgrace, I wonder that there seems to be no laws guarding the internet, this is taking advantage of affiliates in the worst way.
I just feel so angry and I don`t think this feeling will stop any time I make a sale only to realize it falls under the 1% category.
I already spoke about this on this post and I`m not going back, I`m working hard on changing links because really, Amazon has once again shown that they are fine without the affiliates.
Last week, I sold food stuff(for the first time) 25 items the person bought were all food stuff like brocolli and youhurt etc. for some items, i got paid 0.06 commission. and for a Yopalit yogurt I got paid 0.02 affiliate commission.Now I wonder how many yougurt or cookies I`ll need to sell, a cookie paid me $0.04 commission.
How are amazon affiliates supposed to make money? For those who still chose to stay amazon affiliates,all the best.As for me, I`m still busy working and removing Amazon affiliate links, it`s just not worth my time.
