How Much Can St. John’s Earn as an Amazon Affiliate?

One of the myths that float around about the Associate program is that it only pays 4% commission. That’s not quite correct.

The commission structure for general products starts at 4% but the rate rises the more items you sell per month. After you’ve sold 7 items, for example, your commission rate will rise to 6%. Take a look at the table below and you’ll see the advertising fee – which is what Amazon calls commissions – keeps rising up to a maximum of 8.5%.

What’s great is that each time you move up to a higher level your new percentage is applied to all your sales from that month, not just the later ones.

In addition, all sales generated through Amazon ownedMyHabit.com(discount brand shopping) andAmazon Supply (formerly SmallParts.com, selling building, engineering and scientific supplies) have a fixed commission of 15%.

Just to make it a little more confusing, some product categories – like electronics, MP3 downloads, Instant Video and Game Downloads – have a fixed fee rate which rises up to a maximum of 25% commission.

Even if a user buys a different product from the one you linked to, you still get a commission. In fact, you’ll get paid for everything bought within a 24 hour period of arriving on Amazon via your affiliate link.

If they don’t buy an item within the 24 hour period but add it to their cart, you still get a percentage provided they check-out the item before the shopping cart expires (usually after 90 days).

Given that shoppers often buy multiple items in the same shopping session, this can build up to quite an income.
