    Amazon India Affiliate porgram Monetize Indian Traffic With Amazon India Affiliate ProgramLast month Amazon launched their India marketplace and today they announced the launch of their associates program for Indian publishers. Amazon India marketplace is selling wide range of products including electronic goods, books, mobile phones, Kindle devices and movies.  If you are new to affiliate marketing, I recommend you to read what is affiliate marketing to understand the basics.

    Amazon.in affiliate program is exactly same as their U.S. front but for Indian affiliates they are paying a hefty commission on every sale. According to press release, they are paying 5% commission on consumer electronics and 10% commission on all other products including Kindle devices.

    How to start making money with Amazon.in Affiliate program?

    If you have previously worked with Amazon affiliate program, you will not have any problem getting started with this. But, if you haven’t, here I will outline quick points which will help you to get started.  I recommend you to read the following two articles, which I have written for Amazon U.S. associates program, as most of the things including getting affiliate links for the products is going to be the same.

    To get started, head over to Amazon india associates page and sign in using your amazon India account. If you don’t currently have an Amazon india account, you can quickly create one for free. Signing up is a 3 step process:

    • Create an account on Amazon India affiliate program
    • Account information including payment details
    • Your Website detail

    You also need to provide your PAN card number to get paid. The best thing about Amazon.in affiliate program is, if a buyer follows your affiliate link to land on Amazon india site and purchase any product on the site, you will get a commission out of it. Apart from getting link for an individual product, you can also get different widgets and embed it on the sidebar of your blog.

    Here are few more details about the program:

    • Minimum payout is INR 2500
    • Payment will be made approximately 60 days after the end of each month
    • You will not be paid for returned goods. In case if a good sold via your affiliate link is returned after the payment, you might see negative balance in your account.
    • If you buy products using your affiliate link, you will not be paid.

    Specially for those bloggers who have Indian traffic, this is one of the best Indian affiliate program for them. Also for those hobby bloggers who writes about movies, books on their blog, it’s a good chance to make passive income from their blog. You can use Gocodes WordPress plugin to cloak your link and make it user-friendly.

    Amazon affiliate program is one of the most successful affiliate program worldwide and with the launch of their Indian store aff. program, Indian bloggers and publishers have a great chance to monetize their traffic. Go ahead, and get yourself an account and start making money.

    I’m not sure if you need a specific approval. All you do is set up an amazon account, fill up the affiliate application form and that’s it.

    Launch of Amazon’s affiliate program will teach good lessons to other affiliate programs in India specially Flipkart, I have been a Flipkart affiliate for the past 2 years and had N no. of problems, be that tracking, communication or payments. There has been no transperancy, with a professional program like Amazon in India now, FK has finally started to realise the importance of affiliate program – they have now started calling affiliates and are interested in knowing their pain points etc (where were these guys for the past 2-3 years!)

    Is this the reason for Flipkart to increase commission rate? They have increased commission rate for electronic goods from 1% to 5%.

    I guess taking up the affiliates of flipkart would be better idea than of Amazon as flipkart has more buyers than amazon in India till date..

    Now Flipkart has also started giving 5% commission on electronic products and 10% on other categories, i think launch of amazon in the India is main reason behind this .

    Flipkart Sucks these days. Since last 1 year I was affiliating Flipkart products. Sometimes they don’t even pay for legit sales. Amazon was really a great option to choose and I did the same. I found Amazon Affiliate Better then Flipkart.

    Hi harsh,
    I dont know much about amazon affiliate program but after recommendation from some friends I registered with it, with a hope to sell products related to my site, which are Electroncs , micro-controller and robotics. On searching products on amazon.com I can see such products (DC motors , Stepper Motors , USB board etc etc ) but cant find any such products on amazon.in.
    Is it possible for me to register as amazon.com USA (even being in India) and sell products to US Customers ? My target audience is USA, but on Indian version I guess I dont have such product listed. So u think its possible for an Indian to Register USA account and sell products in USA and earn money here in India ?
