Amazon Affiliate Program
Amazon pays commissions to publishers when visitors click on a link and make an order
In the past, Amazon was a trusted and well-known online retailer and this made it a good affiliate partner. Many affiliates did more conversions at Amazon than they did with less-trusted retailers.
Starts in April 2020 as the pandemic and it changes the way consumers purchase products. They began to buy products directly from Amazon and avoid going outside to risk catching COVID.
Because most retailers have an abundant supply of consumers they can use, they’re less reliant on affiliates to drum up business. Amazon took note and reduced the commission rate these third-party merchants earn for sending shoppers their way.
Luxury and beauty affiliate marketers are earning less commission for their products, dropping from a 10% rate in 2017 to only 4% in 2018.
Furniture commission rates have gone down from 8% to 3%. The same is true for grocery commissions: they have descended from 5% to 1%.

Research shows that many people have turned into Amazon “addicts”. One in seven US consumers buy from Amazon 7 or more times per week.
I want to tell you about one of the best things about the Amazon affiliate program. It extends to any other products they seek out (and buy) within that same window. That’s a pretty big deal.
If a customer buys an affiliate product, they’re wide open to also buying products from related categories. For every single sale after their first purchase, you can earn commissions on all other purchases they make (provided they didn’t buy right back) Affiliates who post product links for companies with high commission rates are often paid commissions on products they don’t even promote.
