Changes to Amazon’s Commission Structure: What You Need to Know

Amazon recently announced a major change in the way they will pay out affiliates in their Amazon Associates program. Starting March 1, the commission structure will move away from a volume-based fee and begin paying a flat fee based on the product category.

Amazon Associates is an affiliate program that allows you to access Amazon’s giant inventory of products, generate affiliate links and make money from your referrals. This program has been a great way for affiliate marketers to generate revenue through Facebook Pages, as well as blogs and other online avenues. Several online marketers make a good monthly income from selling Amazon products alone.

Not only do you get a commission on the product you referred, but when people buy other products after your link takes them to Amazon, you also earn a commission on those items. As long as the customer orders within 24 hours, or longer if the visitor adds items to their cart and returns to pay later, you get a commission on all of the items they purchased.

For those of you just getting started with Amazon Associates, these changes to the payout will help you understand where to focus your marketing. But if you’re already selling 10 products or more per month, you’ll want to keep reading.  Changes to the affiliate payout may have a significant impact on your monthly income.

Current Amazon Affiliate Payout

Since commissions have been based on the volume of product sales you made each month, you could earn more with the more products you sold. With the new changes taking place, you will earn the same rate no matter how many products you sell.

The current payout has percentages anywhere from 1% to 10% depending on the category. For anything that doesn’t fit in those categories, the payout was based on how many products you sold per month. You started at 4% and capped out at 8.5%.

What’s Changing?

Amazon Associates is switching to a flat fee based on the product category. All payouts is a fixed percentage based on what is purchased. The rates per category are listed below, and products in any category not listed are capped at 4%.

Amazon new payout by category

These changes will have the biggest impact on those who are currently hitting 8.5% on a monthly basis. For example, if you are successful at promoting and selling books and are currently at the 8.5% mark, your commission rate will drop to 4.5%. In the big picture, that takes you from $8,500 per $100,000 of revenue to $4,500.

What Should You Do?

These changes can be a game changer for some. Many things in online business are beyond our control and the best we can do is be ready to adapt when the unexpected happens.

Amazon’s changes encourage affiliates to direct people to certain product categories, especially digital. To earn a decent income with Amazon, focus on promoting products in the categories with the highest payouts.

Since you never know what is going to happen, it’s important to diversify your streams of income. Amazon is still a free program to participate in and there is a great opportunity to earn income there, but don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Participate in other affiliate programs in your niche. Remember that in addition to the Amazon tool, FPTraffic allows you to post content and earn from eBay as well.

[ecko_contrast]Despite this change, there is still a ton of opportunity to make money with your Facebook Pages. Sign up for FPTraffic to learn how.

Learn How to Monetize Your Facebook Page

Building a massive Page audience requires an investment or time and money, but once you have done it, there are many ways you can monetize your Facebook Page and generate revenue.

So, how are people making money from Facebook Pages? We’ll discuss a few options here, but first let’s go over the steps you need to take before you start monetizing.

Best Practices for Monetizing Facebook Pages

Many people who create a Facebook Page would love to make money from it, but you need to have a few things in place to give your Page the best chance of earning.

First, you need to decide on a niche you love and create a Facebook Page. Pick a niche in something you are passionate about that does not already have a saturated audience on Facebook. If you already have a monetized blog or website, create a Facebook Page based on that niche.

Next, work on building your audience. You need to focus on building a solid and active fan base before you begin thinking about monetizing your Page. Use Facebook ads to generate Likes and traffic to your Page, and post valuable content regularly. Make sure your content is related to your niche to earn your audience’s trust.

Finally, study your audience using Facebook Page Insights. Learn what types of posts your audience resonates with most, and this will give you an idea of what products to promote on your Page.

Once you have a good amount of traffic and engagement on your Page, it’s time to start making money. Read on to learn a few promising ways to earn from your Facebook Page.

Ways to Monetize Your Facebook Page

When done right, monetizing your Facebook Page can earn you extra income without much hard work. We recommend creating as many revenue streams as possible with your Facebook Pages. Here are a few of our favorite ways to earn:

Funnel traffic to a blog, VMS or storefront

Use your Facebook Page to funnel traffic to your monetized blog or viral media site. A viral media site is a website you can fill with content from your niche. By adding AdSense to your viral media site, you can earn money for each person that views your content.

Link content from your site to your Facebook Page to help funnel traffic off Facebook, or create Facebook ads to link to an optimized landing page on your website. Anyone who clicks through to your website from Facebook is a possible conversion.

Create a Facebook app store

Another option is to run a store directly on Facebook. People don’t come to Facebook to shop so this option isn’t as effective as having your own site or store. You’ll have to be creative and gain trust from your fans by posting valuable content.

Use a service like Shopify or Teespring to set up a store in a tab app. The service creates and hosts a storefront for you, and Facebook is then the portal to that store. Launching a campaign on Teespring takes very little work and then you can use FPTraffic to schedule posts with the products linked in the description of the photo.

Amazon Affiliate Program

As the world’s leading online retailer, Amazon has millions of products at affordable prices. You can find something for your fans no matter what your niche is.

Amazon has their own affiliate program, Amazon Associates, which lets you use an affiliate link to promote an Amazon product. People love buying from Amazon, and at 6-8% commission from sales, you can generate great income when you promote the right products to your fans.

To monetize your Page using Amazon products, sign up here for Amazon Associates. The registration process is pretty quick and simple. Once you’re signed up, you can use their product search within Associates to find products related to your niche or search for them on Amazon.com.

associates

When you find a product to promote, click the yellow Get link button to generate your Amazon Associates link. Post the link on your Page either as a photo or a link.

You can also use the FPTraffic Amazon tool to easily schedule product posts.

Remember, photos typically get more engagement. Amazon tracks clicks and conversions you generate in addition to the commission you earned from those conversions.

With monthly payouts, Amazon Associates is perhaps one of the easiest and profitable ways to monetize your Facebook Page.

There are plenty of ways to earn passive income from your Facebook Page and we recommend you have multiple streams of revenue. Remember to focus on building your audience and your trust within your audience before you start monetizing. Maintain a good balance of valuable content and product posts to keep your fans happy.

  5. When you find a product you like, click Schedule Post. You can also click the yellow button to preview the Amazon link.

You can then go in to manage the Amazon content on your Page. You may want to edit the description to make it more appealing and personal to your fans. Then choose when you’d like to schedule the product to post to your Page. We recommend posting Amazon content about every other week so. A page loaded with too many promoted products is sure to lose fans and engagement.
