My First Affiliate Check from Amazon Germany

I just got my first affiliate check from Amazon Germany.

This is my first time promoting physical products on Amazon and do learn a lot of new things.

The check amount is not a lot but gave me a good exposure on how Amazon’s affiliate works.

I got 61.81 Euro (EUR) for my first check. The Euro currency conversion is much more higher than USD. Should focus more on Euro market?


Amazon called their affiliate program as Associates Program.

You need to sign up for an account using a blog. Please note that you need to get approval for each country that you wish to promote. This means Amazon Germany is different account with Amazon USA.

Once your account approved, you can start promote using your affiliate link.

The commission(Advertising Fee Rates) is very low compared to selling e-book in ClickBank.

The Advertising Fee Rates range from 4% up to max 8.5% and depend on quantity of item ordered. The increase of your advertising fee rate based on the number of products shipped/downloaded during a given month.

Every month you’ll start with earning 4% rate even last month you’ve achieved 8.5% rate.
