Amazon Singapore Drops

On October 8 of 2019, Amazon added a seventeenth regional storefront, Amazon Singapore, furthering its march towards global (retail) domination!  

While this is yet another huge step forward for the Seattle-based company, what really caught our attention was their seamless launch of the Amazon Singapore Associates program at the same time as the store launch. As far as we can tell, this is the fastest rollout of an affiliate program yet (Amazon UAE was quick, but it took them a day or two, and Amazon Australia’s affiliate program launch was many weeks delayed). Amazon.sg marks the fifteenth regional, public, and independent affiliate program that Amazon supports (only the Netherlands storefront doesn’t have an affiliate program while the Associates program for Turkey is currently private).

And when done correctly, recommendations on social media can be incredibly lucrative revenue channels for Creators by taking advantage of affiliate marketing and the Amazon affiliate program.
