I stumbled across a page while searching on google, and noticed Amazon pay affiliates from 4% on some items and up to 20% on downloaded items, is it a case of quidco and other cashback sites make a lot of money from them and use that to run the site, or do Amazon forbid them to offer cashback. Just wondered as they are the biggest online seller and therefore the biggest payers out.

Amazon run their own affiliate scheme, which is done by them.

You can get nectar points if you wish, and greasypalm used to do amazon cashback but it stopped.

Without reading the t&c's of the amazon affiliate scheme, i would hazard that amazon don't want their scheme on cashback websites :o

In addition, you may not: (a) directly or indirectly offer any person or entity any consideration or incentive (including, without limitation, payment of money (including any rebate), or granting of any discount or other benefit) for using Special Links on your site to access the Amazon.co.uk Site (e.g., by implementing any "rewards" programme for persons or entities who use Special Links on your site to access the Amazon.co.uk Site)

(from the site)

Amazon have affiliates, very often "information" sites which provide targeted links to Amazon to whom they pay commission. I know that my children's school gets commission from Amazon as well from a referral link on the school website.

I suspect that HUKD would also get commission whenever there is an Amazon deal posted. But I've never seen Amazon on any of the cashback sites so, presumably, cashback sites are not part of Amazon's business plan.

Amazon don'l allow it. Although rpoints did have them at £5 for a new customer for a couple of years which was a good deal!

Also note that you cant just sign up as an affiliate then hope to buy goods from your own links, they check for that:x and don't give you commission on your own purchases.

www.easyfundraising.com has the option to purchase items via Amazon and enables you to gift your commision to a charity or good cause.

If anyone does take this up, and would like to set it to donate to my local group who are on there then please feel free to message me.
