Is Amazon Associates ohkay for International affiliates?

12 replies
I am from India and working with amazon associates. I have made three websites promoting Amazon products there and I know within a few weeks I would definitely see some sales everyday.

But I have been hearing about Amazon dropping some affiliates from some US states. Will this by any means affect me? I mean I am 19 and live in India and would take my payment through CHECKS.

If it will, then I will not make any websites for Amazon from now on.

    Hey there,

    Amazon Associates is generally ok for international affiliates. I know of many international affiliates (me included) having an account with them.

    I have not had any problems with Amazon either, and I live in Asia. I wish they would expand their direct debit system though as cheques are a pain. I don't see them having an issue with international affiliates anytime soon.

    The whole issue with Amazon is for US affilaites and collecting state taxes and has nothing to do with Amazon Affiliates outside the US so I would not worry about it and continue building your sites.

    wish you be best of luck

    Exactly, they're battling in the US because businesses in certain states are getting hammered hard by Amazon.com sales. Businesses are losing sales to online sales because if people buy it online they're not paying any state sales tax. Nothing to do with international affiliates so you're safe.

        It's check. However, bare in mind that banks charge a fee to cash a check. Typically the fee is about $15, though the amount varies depending on the bank.
