    Do not look at the 4% rate. As other posters have mentioned, Amazon's reputation means a lot.
    SEMrush
    Targeted niche sites can do very well, but you will need to focus on building a lot of small sites, not one big "department store" type site. If you can do good keyword research and some basic SEO, these little sites can make for great passive income.

    It is not 4% anyway, if you use a remote shopping cart. Your commissions start at 6% and increase after you sell only a few items :cool:

    Remember that when a person goes to amazon, they are likely to view many other items other than the one you promoted. Sometimes they will buy another product other than the one you promoted but you will still get credit. If you have an email list you can continue to promote various amazon products and make good money over time.

    +1!!!! ^^^

    That's why Amazon is a big moneymaker. People treat it like it's a supermarket. They walk into a place and maybe intend to spend $3 on a tube of toothpaste. But the next thing you know, they're suddenly buying $25 worth of groceries because then they remember, "Oh, I'm out of orange juice" or "Oh, yeah, I need some toilet paper" or "That sale on tuna fish looks great; let me get 5 cans worth!" It's the same with Amazon. Even if someone doesn't buy something you promote, they will wind up buying other things, anyway.

    you get paid on anything that the user buy for 24 hours.. so u can definitely make some good income with just 4% commission on Amazon.. the commission will increase as you purchase more items too..

    in years I never earned a cent with cj, and the little I earned with clickbank is still on their pocket. Instead I earned with Amazon, little by little. Not very much but really great amounts compared with cj and clickbank!

    This post shows how people survive having a little commission. I usually work with game download products. But still having hard times.

    I earn 4 figures per month as an Amazon Associate.

    With the volume that I push on a monthly basis, I typically hit 7%-8% and because I know how to target easy-to-rank products and visitors who are in the late stages of the "buying cycle", I enjoy solid conversion rates.

    I know the 4% sounds horrific but with just a bit of "smart" work, you can easily double that.

    I haven't done much with Amazon yet, but see the potential. The only sales I've gotten credit on were things I didn't even advertise!

    Just a single site of mine with virtually no promotional efforts sells several hundred items a month. It's not hard to make a few hundred bucks a month with Amazon if you pick products that no one else promotes and that have little to no SEO competition.

    The trick to avoid this is to be selective about which products you promote.

    Since Amazon is well-known to the buyers the sales usually pick up on high-traffic websites. Therefore making good money will not be a problem. Moreover the percentage of commission is likely to pick up when the volume of the sales goes up.

    I live in California and I'm reluctant to establish web pages and links that promote amazon.. I fear that they will again revoke people in California for that tax issue.

    The battle you have with any online product promotion and gaining natural unpaid traffic is time. Unfortunately, it's a necessary requirement in building targeted traffic, so if you get the numbers in your favour and it's targeted then a 4% conversion rate with say 5000 targeted visitors a month with an average product value of $100 is a reasonable amount.

    Review to sell the most expensive products, I guess.
