Re: Would Amazon Shut Down Their Affiliate Program If They Lose The Sales Tax Battle?

In some states (like mine, for instance) businesses selling digital products are already subject to B&O taxes.

The states and municipalities need to get together and just have one standard...

Re: Would Amazon Shut Down Their Affiliate Program If They Lose The Sales Tax Battle?

"from my prospective.." ah-ha

Amazon made its money from cutting out many small businesses. It could pick, pack and ship quicker and cheaper. That's actually good for us consumers but is part and...

Re: Would Amazon Shut Down Their Affiliate Program If They Lose The Sales Tax Battle?

Oh great. I live in Pennsylvania, and I just recently started a few Amazon sites. *sigh*

Maybe I should start reading up a bit more on this subject; I've peeked into these Amazon threads from...

Re: Would Amazon Shut Down Their Affiliate Program If They Lose The Sales Tax Battle?

Unlike Amazon, CJ is an advertiser. They do not directly sell tangible products. Also, many of the programs already are paying sales taxes where applicable. For example, Best Buy (affiliate program...

Re: Would Amazon Shut Down Their Affiliate Program If They Lose The Sales Tax Battle?

CJ is not the retailer. They will never be affected by it. It's up to the individual merchants to decide what to do.

And Clickbank is already charging the sales tax where necessary.

Re: Would Amazon Shut Down Their Affiliate Program If They Lose The Sales Tax Battle?

Government officials really need to become more fiscally responsible. They waste money on needless things and then try and make up for it by scrounging for income wherever they can. Sort of like...

Re: Would Amazon Shut Down Their Affiliate Program If They Lose The Sales Tax Battle?

Thats because of ever-increasing already way too high public salaries and bloated benefit packages and poor fund management.

I sincerely hope that Amazon and all other internet retailers win this...

Re: Would Amazon Shut Down Their Affiliate Program If They Lose The Sales Tax Battle?

I got a message from them a while back saying they were terminating the affiliate program in Illinois since the bozo's here passed the new tax law. I can receive no income from affiliate sales of...

Re: Would Amazon Shut Down Their Affiliate Program If They Lose The Sales Tax Battle?

Most of the programs on CJ sells physical products so wouldn't they ultimately be effected by the tax laws as well? I would only think that eventually digital items download to a PC in a certain...

Re: Would Amazon Shut Down Their Affiliate Program If They Lose The Sales Tax Battle?

Although using affiliates was a good idea for Amazon in the past, why would they need them now? Amazon.com is a household name and I'd bet that 99% of the people who shop there go to Amazon.com, not...

Re: Would Amazon Shut Down Their Affiliate Program If They Lose The Sales Tax Battle?

Actually neither CJ nor Clickbank are affected by the nexus law. CJ is an advertising company which does not sell physical products, and Clickbank does not sell physical products either. Neither one...

Re: Would Amazon Shut Down Their Affiliate Program If They Lose The Sales Tax Battle?

Amazon doesn't need affiliates? Where did you come up with that? Some of these businesses are built on the backs of affiliates. The question is do you really think they can afford to LOSE all...

Re: Would Amazon Shut Down Their Affiliate Program If They Lose The Sales Tax Battle?

Ask yourself one question: Does Amazon need affiliates? No, they don't. This is why Amazon isn't putting up much of a fight over this.

Re: Would Amazon Shut Down Their Affiliate Program If They Lose The Sales Tax Battle?

Wait does this mean that sales from those states are not qualified for commission or that affiliates are not qualified to apply in those states?

Amazon is a vital part of my online business, where can I read about the upcoming litigation? Do you know if this affects all states or just 1 or 2?
