Last 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.
Especially 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 ThirstyAffiliate 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.

Is it necessary to be Indian citizen to apply for Flipkart affiliate program or anyone can apply? Since I have maximum visitors from India in my blog site and I am not Indian.
Can you please list me some of the best indian affiliate websites
Most of my website’s traffic is from USA and India. I already have an existing Amazon Associate account (USA). I have just created an account for the Amazon Associate INDIA. I see that the store ID’s for both there accounts are different, and so I think the product links would also be different.
Is there a way in which I can use just ONE link on my website for a particular product, and the link would redirect to the respective US or India Amazon store?
Basically I want to know is how to integrate both my accounts/links (and get paid via a single product link), irrespective of where the user is clicking my link from (USA or India).
Start using Geni.us. That’s what I use & it’s working out great to make money from all the Amazon store. You should also signup for Amazon UK & other stores.
Definitely an informative article on amazon affiliate marketing. This guide is very useful for every affiliate marketer who are trying to build career on this industry!
Yes, niche research is very important.
