Earning Amazon Bounties Worldwide

If you’re an Amazon Affiliate then you are likely familiar with the commission rates for referred sales. You get X% commission after you refer a buyer for a given product. But some may not be as familiar with the bounties that the Amazon Associates programs payout.  

What’s a bounty, you ask? Besides helping Amazon sell products you can encourage your audience to things, such as signing up for an Amazon Prime trial, creating an Amazon Baby Registry, and recommending Audible subscriptions, which can earn you a decent-sized bounty. Amazon maintains a lengthy chart of various actions you can refer to, and the bounty paid for each. For example, successfully referring an Amazon Business account can earn you $15 per action. That could be much more profitable than referring video games with a 1% commission

Clothes, books, electronics, you name it – if it exists, you can probably buy it online. Unfortunately, with 195 countries, it’s nearly impossible for retailers to provide a local storefront for every country, which means the purchasing experience for consumers can vary wildly depending on your region. This disparity between purchasing countries and available storefronts is what we call “geo-fragmentation”.
