Amazon’s Affiliate program (Amazon’s Associates) is among the best affiliate programs you can get.
It’s the oldest and has a wide range of products to market. The conversion rates are also high.
There was a time when Affiliate programs were dominated by Amazon Associates. Despite their wide range of products and conversion rates, many affiliates are drifting to Amazon Affiliate alternatives.
There are some few reasons they do that:
- If as an affiliate you do not follow their terms and conditions/rules to the letter, your account will be banned and if you decide to use a different account later, that will also be barred.
- The commissions on Amazon Affiliate programs is less , 4% – 8% per sale.
Hence you will need to make more sales for more profits which can be hectic somethings because not all affiliates can generate many sales. With other Amazon affiliate alternatives, they earn more.
- Their payment option is limited.
If you are located in the USA – Amazon can directly deposit your earnings to your bank account which is great for USA affiliates. But, if you are located outside the USA, they send you a cheque (or an online gift certificate – as you choose). You have to wait until it arrives and clears. Moreover, cheque processing fee applies, and they can be significant if you are not earning much with Amazon. Some affiliate programs offer better payment options (like PayPal) for international affiliates
- Moreover, Amazon Associates programs do not have a faster payment method.
As an affiliate you will have to wait for 60 days after the purchases to get your earnings which is long!
In addition, many other websites offer less (cheaper prices) for most products being sold on the Amazon websites hence why not be part of that other websites program as an alternative to earn more.
The Amazon Associate is a great program but with their limitations why not consider other alternative affiliate programs.
eBay Partner Network
One of the main advantages is the fact that many products sold there are shipped worldwide (sometimes for free). That’s really good if some of your website visitors are not from the USA.
Also, on eBay many generic products like headphones, cables, adapters etc. are cheap.
eBay pays publishers based on the traffic they send. The amount paid is based upon a percentage of eBay revenue (that can be actually pretty high).
Joining eBay Affiliate Program is really easy and only takes few minutes (apply here).
Make sure to read eBay’s Partner Network Agreement and Code of Conduct. Your application will be reviewed in few days and you’ll receive an e-mail regarding that.
If your website is well built and contains high-quality content you will probably get accepted without any problems.
