    Just noticed Amazon Associates is now only paying fixed 4% on unlocked cell phones as of May 1 (like they have done for a while for computers). The rate doesn't increase based on volume of sales either.

    This is a huge lose for me, as most of my big sales are cell phones. Note: they still charge merchants(sellers) ~9% to sell cell phones (no change), so they are profiting the difference.

    Did anyone see an announcement of this anywhere?
