    A few days ago I posted one link to someones Facebook page just to try it out and got a 75% convert rate. However, I only got 16 cents total from all the orders. Why is it so low? How is someone going to make money with Amazon with such a low payout...

    what price were the items you were targeting?
    Their commission rate starts at 4% and goes up the more you sell. So if you are going to promote Amazon items, target higher priced items (around 150 bucks and up) Only promote the low priced stuff to get your commission rate up.
