I just added a couple of Back to School ads on the top of my blog's right-hand column... right now Amazon is promoting Back to School Savings AND a FREE 1 year Amazon Prime account (free 2 day shipping on text books & millions of other items) to College students joining their free Amazon Student program. (I have an Amazon Prime account & LOVE IT!) You can click on those ads & purchase ANYTHING, not just school supplies, & a percentage of your purchase might qualify for this program. (you won't get any info of what my earnings were... this is supposed to be a silent earning program for people who use their links on their blogs & websites)
THANK YOU, so much, for considering helping my little sister out!!
Clicking on any of the links throughout this post (except for the first one) will take you to Amazon through my account.
If you want details on what kinds of products earn what kinds of percentages, here you go:
How are fees calculated in the Performance Fee Structure?The Performance plan allows you to earn higher advertising fees as you increase the number of shipped items generated through your links. You earn an advertising rate from 4% to 15% on items shipped by Amazon or third-party sellers in the following categories:
- Amazon Video on Demand
- Apparel & Accessories
- Camera & Photo (Consumer Electronics advertising-fee rates)
- Cell Phones & Service (phones only, not plans)
- Electronics (Consumer Electronics advertising-fee rates)
- Gourmet Food
- Health & Personal Care
- Home & Garden
- Jewelry & Watches
- Kitchen & Housewares
- Magazine & Newspaper Subscriptions
- Musical Instruments
- Pet Supplies
- Sports & Outdoors
- Tools & Hardware
- Toys & Games
- Video Games
Both Amazon and third-party items count toward your total shipped items, which determines your advertising rate. As you move from one level to the next, the advertising rate in the new, higher level will be applied to all items shipped during the month. For example, if you refer 100 shipped items in a given month, you will be in the third level and earn 6.50% on all general products and flat fees on other product categories (e.g., 4.00% on CE Products), whether shipped or sold by Amazon or a third party, shipped during that month (subject to any caps set forth in the Operating Agreement).
