Payments are made monthly if your balance meets the minimum threshold. We must have your tax information on file before we can make any payments.
Commission income are paid by direct deposit, Amazon.com Gift Certificate, or check approximately 60 days after the end of the month for which they are being paid.
For example: If you’re being paid by gift certificate and you earned more than the $10 threshold in January, the payment for that month will be issued by the end of March.
Commissions are earned after the order has shipped. You may notice that some items won’t appear in the Earnings Report after an order has been placed. There are multiple reasons this could happen.
Associates are not eligible for commission income from orders placed on their behalf, or by closely related parties. The Amazon.com Associates Program is an advertising program and is not intended to provide discounts onpurchases. Our intent is to pay commission income when associates refer unrelated customers to Amazon. Associates who refer family members, friends, or close acquaintances to place their orders through their links may not receive advertising commissions for those purchases. We recommend that you look to reach potential Amazon customers who you don't havepre-existing relationships with. The Operating Agreement defines what criteria are used to determine order eligibility. (Refer to the Operating Agreement Section 7 for more details.)
