My first earned commission in the bank account: EUR 21,51!

Last Update: February 14, 2020

Hello WA family,

I am happily announcing that my effort so far has paid off!

My first EUR 21,51 commission arrived in my bank account!

I feel joy, gratitude and fulfillment with everything I have accomplished so far and everything I was allowed the chance to benefit from. Here I mean, apart from the love and support of my partner, the support and encouragements I receive from the WA community, the comments to my posts, the posts of other members, etc. Thank you all for being so great!

Now that the system proved to be working for me as well, I have my eyes on the bigger prize! :)

As part of my affiliate sales I am targeting not only the market I am based in (The Netherlands) but also the overseas. This is the reason why I have set up my affiliate links on my website for 2 affiliate programs: Bol.com and Amazon.com.

However, in order to become an approved member for the associates program of Amazon.com, I need to have 3 qualifying purchases in 3 months. I have asked a friend of mine for help. He has placed an order via my link and paid double the price of the product for the shipping to The Netherlands. In the end the order has not been recorded in my affiliate account (there is no record of it in "My orders" overview). I believe that it is because when changing the address of the delivery to The Netherlands, the affiliate link with my website broke off.

Therefore, I am turning to the WA family for help once again. Dear friends (who are based overseas), I am kindly asking you to help me gather my 3 purchases in the remaining 1,5 months in order for me to get approved for the associates program. I realize it is a big ask, assuming that probably all of you have your own (approved) associates account. Still, it is the number of orders that will help me and not the value of them. So in case you need to order something small (or something big for your Valentine :)), please do so via the affiliate link to Amazon.com of my website www.bestparrottoys.com.

I am already grateful for all of you being this awesome!

Have a lovely Valentine day!

Tatiana

Hi - you cannot allow friends, family or business colleagues to buy through your links. Amazon tracks all purchases to see if they have any connection to you. If so, you won't get commission and could be banned. It is clearly stated in their terms and conditions

Hi Diane, thank you for telling me. I will have to revisit the terms and conditions. For some reason I thought it was only me who was not allowed to use the link.

Cheers, Tatiana

Hi - having taken a look at your site, you are also breaking some of their other rules. You need an Affiliate Disclosure, there is a template in Site Content you can adapt. You are not allowed to show the price of a product.

Hi Diane, thank you for the feedback! Can you please advise me, the Affiliate Disclosure, should that be posted as a separate menu on my blog or shall it be just a page as part of my currently existing menu "Product reviews"?

Thank you in advance.
Tatiana

Hi - you can add it as a page to your top navigation menu. It needs to be clearly visible before a potential customer sees your affiliate links.

Isn't it great? That first moment when everything suddenly becomes real... a "holy Sh!rt" moment haha

From here on, it just becomes a matter of building on success ;)
