Amazon Associates: A Simple Guide

What is Amazon Associates?

Amazon Associates is a way for people who own websites, write blogs, make YouTube videos, or create other online content to make money by telling others about products sold on Amazon.

If you become an Amazon Associate, you get paid a little bit each time someone buys something from Amazon using a special link that you share.

The great thing about this program is how easy it is. You don’t have to make or sell any products yourself, and you don’t have to worry about shipping or talking to customers.

All you do is share Amazon product links with others, and if they buy something, you get a percentage of the sale.

This percentage, called a commission, can be anywhere from 1% to 10% of the price of the item they buy.

How to Sign In to Amazon Associates

Signing in to your Amazon Associates account is easy. Here’s what you need to do:

Understanding the Amazon Affiliate Program

How to Log In to Amazon Affiliate

The Amazon Affiliate Program, or Amazon Associates, lets people who own websites or blogs earn money by promoting Amazon products.

Here’s a simple way to log in:

Go to the Amazon Associates homepage by searching for ‘Amazon Associates’ online or by typing ‘affiliate-program.amazon.com’ in your web browser.

Click the ‘Sign In’ button, which you’ll usually find at the top right of the page.

What’s the Smallest Amount You Can Earn Before Getting Paid?

Amazon Affiliates have a minimum amount they need to earn before they can get paid, and it depends on how they want to be paid.

  • If you want to get paid through direct deposit or an Amazon gift card, you need to earn at least $10.
  • If you prefer a check, you must earn at least $100.

Amazon usually pays its affiliates about 60 days after the month ends, but only if you’ve earned enough to meet the minimum payout.

What Does ‘Unpaid Balance’ Mean?

In the Amazon Affiliate Program, ‘unpaid balance’ is the money you’ve made from commissions that hasn’t been paid to you yet.

This might be because you haven’t earned enough to meet the minimum payout or the 60-day payment period isn’t over yet.

Once you meet the requirements, you’ll get this money in your next payment. It’s smart to keep an eye on your unpaid balance to see how much you’re earning.

What Are Bounties?

As an Amazon Affiliate, you might hear about “bounties.”

Bounties are special ways to make money by getting people to do certain things, like signing up for Amazon Prime, making a wedding registry, or becoming new Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers.

These are called “bounty events.”

Bounties are different from the usual money you make from selling products because they pay a set amount for promoting specific Amazon services or special offers.

They’re a great way to make more money and add variety to how you earn as an affiliate.

The last way to get paid is by receiving a check. This option requires you to earn at least $100 before you get paid.

Here’s how to set it up:

Access ‘Account Settings’ in your Amazon Associates account.

Click on ‘Change Payment Method.’

Exchange and Withdraw

  • When the money’s in your Wise account, you can change it to Pakistani Rupees at good rates.
  • Then, you can move it to your bank in Pakistan or use other ways to get your money from Wise.

When you’re ready to withdraw your money, you can transfer it to your local bank account in Pakistan or use other available withdrawal options offered by Wise.com.

How to Make a Bank Account with Payoneer for Amazon Payments

If you live in a country where Amazon doesn’t send payments directly, Payoneer might be a good solution for you.

Sign Up for Payoneer

First, you need to go to the Payoneer website and create a free account.

It’s easy to sign up, and you don’t have to pay anything to get started.

Payoneer

Open Virtual Bank Accounts

After your Payoneer account is ready, you can set up virtual bank accounts in three countries: the USA, the UK, and Japan.

Payoneer virtual bank accounts

These aren’t physical bank accounts but they work almost the same way for receiving money.

Update Your Amazon Affiliate Account

Payoneer will give you bank account details for these virtual accounts.

You’ll need to put this information into your Amazon affiliate account so that Amazon knows where to send your money.

Get Your Money

When Amazon pays you, the money goes into your Payoneer virtual account.

Amazon affiliate commissions paid into a US bank account

From there, you can move your earnings to your actual bank account in your home country.

Keep an Eye on Fees

Both Payoneer and another service called Wise will charge you for using their services.

Make sure to check out how much they charge so you can decide which one is better for you.

It’s always good to know about any fees before you start using a service.

      Thanks for the great content sir, Please Does Amazon still paying every first of each month or the process has been updated?

      1. newblogr avatar

        Hello Kolade, thank you for your comment. As far as I know, Amazon still pays on the first of the month. I don’t have my Amazon affiliate website now, so can’t confirm.

  2. rehmat akbari avatar

    We should withdraw the payment or amazon itself will send the payment?

    1. newblogr avatar

      Amazon will pay you according to the preferred payment method you set. Amazon also has a minimum payout, so if you don’t reach that, you won’t receive payment. Amazon pays you 2 months late, so if you make a $10 commission in March, you will get that on the 1st of June.

  3. daniyal avatar

    it means that you can not withdraw itself from amazon NEWBLOGER?

    1. newblogr avatar

      You can not withdraw money from Amazon. Amazon pays its affiliates on the first of every month according to the set preferred payment. Amazon has a set minimum payment limit, if you don’t reach that amount, you won’t get paid. They are also two months behind, which means that the commission earned in March won’t be paid until the first of June.

    2. Paul Ngugi avatar

      You have really made my work easier and great thanks for this. But I have a question am not sure if you can and but let me ask anyway. Do I get paid by Amazon shipped items revenue

      1. newblogr avatar

        Thank you for your comment. I don’t know anything about Amazon shipped items revenue. If you are an Amazon affiliate and get a sale from one of your links, you will get paid and long as you meet the criteria.

  4. WAQAR AHMAD avatar

    sir , Amazon automatically pays into our payoneer account after editting our bank information to the account or we have to make apply separately for that

    1. newblogr avatar

      Sign up for a Payoneer account first to gain access to a bank account in the United States. Then use that account number to update your payment information in your Amazon affiliate account. After you update your account details and providing you earn the minimum payout limit, Amazon will pay money into the bank account on the first of each month. Once you have money in your account, you can then transfer the money to your personal bank account. Doing this way incurs fees, I recommend ordering the free credit card from Payoneer and use that to make payments.

    How do I use the money earned as an affiliate for shopping on Amazon?
    What is the minimum pay out limit?

    1. newblogr avatar

      The minimum payout for Amazon US is $10. You can have that money paid into a bank account or you can change your preferred payment method to be an Amazon gift voucher.

    What if, for tax reasons, I want to withhold the earnings on my affiliate account for one year or longer, is it possible? Meaning I do not want Amazon to send me payment, just leave it on my account.

    1. newblogr avatar

      Hello Helen, thank you for your comment. Amazon will pay you each month, I don’t think they have an option to delay payment.

    1. newblogr avatar

      Hi Udoba, what did you do to get banned? If you did anything against their operating agreement, you won’t get your money.

      1. udoba sabastine avatar
        udoba sabastine

        OK … But I was using bounty program to earn, like wedding registry … And I got banned … So I won’t be paid

        1. newblogr avatar

          Amazon is strict. Try reaching out to other affiliate programs in your niche.

  10. Xandres avatar

    Pls will I be paid after termination of my amazon associate account and when will they pay me my already earned money before termination

    1. newblogr avatar

      Hello, Xandres. If you did anything against their operating agreement. You won’t get paid. You can try contacting support if you think they have made a mistake.

    Must the payment be on the first of the second month
    Example: if I join amazon associate on January 10th

    Will I be paid on march 1st or march 10

    1. newblogr avatar

      Hello, Bryt. Commissions earned in January appear on your payment history on the 1st of March. Providing you earn more than the minimum amount, payment is then made on the 31st March.

  12. Aystar avatar
    Aystar

    Thanks for this info you just make everything easy now… My payment is via giftcard But my question is if I change my payment method to bank now hope I won’t have any problem, and will I be the one to request the money from amazon or they pay automatically once you reached the minimum threshold.

    1. newblogr avatar

      Hello, Aystar. Once you update the preferred payment option, Amazon activates that method from the 1st of the following month. You don’t have to request a withdrawal, Amazon pays you automatically once you earn over the minimum amount. Don’t forget, Amazon pay two months late. Commissions earned in July are added to your account on the 1st of September and then paid on the 30th of September.

  13. SouMek avatar
    SouMek

    If I earned 20$, and my payment method was Direct Deposit(min. 10$). Amazon will send me 10$ or 20$?

    1. newblogr avatar

      Hello, SouMek. Thank you for your comment. Once you earn over $10, Amazon pays you the amount in your account. So if you have $20 in your account on the 2nd of June, you get paid $20 on the 30th of June.

    Pls i want to get it right lets assume i started the amazon affliate program august and made over $100 from aflliate before 30th, when would amazon pay me ?

    1. newblogr avatar

      Hello Clemzy. On 1 September, Amazon adds commissions earned in August to your account, ready to be paid at the end of September. You should receive payment from 30 September to 2 October.

    Hi,I want to know, is it only payoneer,amazon accepts. Can’t I use other type like geegpay?

    1. newblogr avatar

      Hello Oluwa. Thank you for your comment. I only used Payoneer to accept payment. I don’t know anything about Geegpay. As long as you can open an account in the States, it should be OK. I recommend you look in forums and Facebook groups for more information.

    Michael

    Please must I submit tax information before I get paid. They said they will deduct 30% if tax information is not uploaded. Please confirm this.

    1. newblogr avatar

      Hello Michael. Thank you for your comment. Unless you provide Amazon with the requested document, they must follow US tax law. I recommend you submit the required information as soon as you can. https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/help/node/topic/GPFZ6W6CF4E5BD9V

    Janet

    Please As I Nigeria which payment method you will advise me to use, have already generate my US account using Payoneer. So which among the three it’s direct deposit, gift card or checks??

    1. newblogr avatar

      Hello Janet. Thank you for your comment. You use Payoneer to get access to a bank account so you can get paid by direct deposit. Update your account details on Amazon and Amazon deposits funds into that account. Once you reach the minimum payout limit on Payoneer, you can transfer the funds to your account. Payoneer charges for this, I’m not sure how much.

  18. Janet avatar
    Janet

    Okay…. Let say I earn $100 on September and am using either direct deposit or gift card, can I withdraw it once or I will be withdrawing $10 each month

    1. newblogr avatar

      Amazon pays 2 months late. Money earned in September is deposited on the first of November. Providing you reach the minimum payout limit. Amazon pays the total amount by the preferred payment method you set.

  19. Jimmy avatar
    Jimmy

    Will Amazon still pay you if you have bounty earnings and no commission earnings?

    1. newblogr avatar

      Hello Jimmy. Thank you for your comment. Amazon pays you the amount in your account, providing you reach the minimum payment limit.

  20. Janet avatar
    Janet

    Can I make withdrawal on Amazon anytime or it must be first day of the month only

    1. newblogr avatar

      You have to wait for Amazon to pay you. You can see the funds in your account but you can’t access them. Amazon adds commissions earned to your account on the last day of a month and then pays you on the last day of the next month.

  21. Janet avatar
    Janet

    Please can I make multiple withdrawal on Amazon in a month because I want to use direct deposit

    1. newblogr avatar

      Unfortunately, you can’t access funds in your account. You set up a payment method and wait for Amazon to pay you. If you are new to the program it feels like a long wait, but if you are earning commissions, it is nice to get money deposited into your account once a month.

      1. Janet avatar
        Janet

        Okay my own is just to set up a payment method and wait for amazon to pay me it not that I will request for it

        1. newblogr avatar

          Yes, that is correct. Please make sure you have set your preferred payment method because it takes Amazon a month to update this. Also, have you completed the tax information request on your account?

  22. Tarvel avatar
    Tarvel

    If I’ve passed the minimum ($10) for bank deposit, do I receive the money in my account after two months or on the 1st of the next month

    1. newblogr avatar

      Hello Tarvel. Thank you for your comment. Was the $10 in your account on the 1st of September? If it was, you will receive payment on the 1st of October.

      1. Tarvel avatar
        Tarvel

        No, some days after September 1… ?

        1. newblogr avatar

          In that case, you won’t get paid until the 1st of November.

  23. Okudu Lazarus avatar

    Thank you very much for your guide.
    But pls if you earn more than $10.
    Maybe you earn $35 in September, will your the whole thing you earn in that month be sent to you at once
    Or does it depend on the days?

    1. newblogr avatar

      Hello Okudu. Thank you for your kind comment. Amazon pays after 60 days. So if you earned $35 in September, that gets put into your account on the 1st of October and paid on the 1st of November. So for you, you will get paid $35 on the 1st of November.

  24. Bobbyy1997 avatar

    Thanks for the response so far @newblogr. I started on the 27th of September, if I have more 200$ before 30th of October, when will I get paid?

    1. newblogr avatar

      Hello Bobbyy1997. Thank you for your comment. Officially, Amazon states there is a 60-day delay in payment. That means you get paid for commissions earned in October on the 1st of January. I got paid after 30 or so days when I was promoting Amazon’s products. I received payment in early December when I made a commission in October. Would you mind letting me know when you get paid? I want to give my readers accurate information.

      1. Bobbyy1997 avatar

        I’ll let you know then. Can I recieve payment if i have only bounty earnings?

        1. newblogr avatar

          Thanks for letting me know. Yes, Bounties are another way for affiliates to earn money. If you have money in your account, that is what you get paid.

  25. Bobbyy1997 avatar

    Thanks for all the help so far.
    My associate account has been closed because I used a popular site rather than a complete and valid URL of a site that is owened by me.
    Please can you guide me on how to apeal

    1. newblogr avatar

      Hi Bobby1997. Sorry to hear that. You must follow the instructions in the email. If you can’t prove Amazon is incorrect, you must accept their decision to cancel your account.

    Hello, if I have $10 bounty, will the amount of income remain the same as the amount of the bounty?

    1. newblogr avatar

      Hello Benny. Thank you for your comment. Does the $10 show in your affiliate account? If yes, then that is what you get paid.

  27. Javed Aslam avatar

    Hi, thanks for the article.

    I have attached my Payoneer USD account with Amazon Affiliate Program. I can see the traction have been made on the 1st or 2nd of each month but surprisingly, I haven’t received any payment in my Payoneer account.

    What should I do to get the payment to my account to my Payoneer account?

    I am looking forward to receive your answer.

    Best,
    Javed

    1. newblogr avatar

      Hello Javed. Thank you for your comment. The payment shows instantly on Payoneer. Are you sure Amazon made the payment? When you don’t make the minimum payout limit, Amazon doesn’t pay. Are you sure the bank details are correct? Double-check to be sure. If you can’t find a reason, contact Payoneer support.
