There have been some recent developments to their program which include Amazon MP3 and Context Links. Amazon MP3 offers the largest selection of DRM free MP3 downloads which means they can be played on any device. This is something that is sure to go down well with a lot of consumers. I see them giving iTunes a run for their money. Most of the songs are priced from 89 cents to 99 cents. Up until 31 December 2007 Associates are eligible to earn 20% on all MP3 referrals. From 1 January 2008 the referral fees will be 10%. (Note: Amazon MP3 is currently only available to US customers)
Context Links Beta identifies and automatically links relevant phrases within your content to Amazon products.
Payments are sent out monthly with Amazon offering three payment options:
1. Amazon.com gift certificate/card ($10.00 minimum earnings)
2. Direct deposit ($10.00 minimum earnings)
3. Cheque ($100.00 minimum earnings. Note a $15 processing fee will be applied to all Associates with US addresses when choosing this option.)
A number of sites out there are already displaying Associate links. If you have not yet signed up it might be worth a try.
