    I want to know one thing. If I promote a certain book on my site...let's say fat loss, do I get comission from amazon only when people buy the fatloss book? Or will I get comission even if they buy something unrelated but as long as they have my cookie? Do I get comission only from people who will register at amazon or even if I refer already registered people?

    What do I have to do to promote a certain book on my blog, but get comission from any other products people might buy when they go to book link?

    I mean from white hat side of view.

    You should get comminsion for anyhting they buy. I havent CS'ed amazon in a while so im not sure i remember exactly. But to be safe, u could make sure they have your cookie for a more general thing like a banner. But again Im pretty sure you will get commision for anyhting the buy in the next 7 days. I believe amazons cookie lasts 7 days.

    You get commission from anything they buy from Amazon within 24 hours, so if they click on the book link on your site, but buy a DVD, you get commission. As long as they didn't visit somewhere else and get someone else's aff. ID before the purchase. The Amazon cookie lasts for 24 Hours.

    I only have links to books on my website, but one time last year someone clicked onto amazon through one of my links and ended up buying a gps device... $13 commission for me, not too shabby I thought. :)

    I stuff Amazon and the leadup to Christmas was great. Slowed way down now. My conversion rate is about 1% on about 500 stuffs per day.

    I agree the amazon 24 hour cookie makes it a terrible promotion unless you have a hot product your pushing and the link is on a popular site. By the way this isn't the cS section so we're not supposed to talk about stuffing

    fyi, the cookie only lasts 24 hours or till the first purchase within the 24 hours.

    so if someone makes a second purchase within the 24 hours, you won´t get a second commission. this sucks.
