    Sooo. whats up guys.
    I made a amazon affiliate account once. but dont know sh*t about it.

    I got a 14 items ordered with conversion rate of 700% something. For only 1 Min of work
    Im gonna explain how;

    In the country I live everything is expensive, mostly electronics. What I mean by this. If it costs 200$ you will need to pay 300$.
    So we import everything from america, mostly amazon.
    We have some import companies who import stuff in like 2 weeks.

    So I wanted to ask them how much it cost to import my item.
    I thought what if I sent an affiliate link, would the cookie safe on their computer and I get the few % of the sales? So i did it for fun.

    Guess what. I opened my amazon affiliate and what a surprise. I saw he ordered 14 items. Not expensive ones (sadly) :(
    Proof:

    But I have 2 questions:

    1 Is this even legal. Or would amazon just ban my account or do I get the money? I hope it legal because everyone can get rich af from this one.
    2 What does the following screenshot mean? Product conversion say n/a. Does that mean I still won't get any money? Or should I have to wait till the company ships the things?

    (this is on the summery of ordered items)


    Just one more thing If the method does not break the amazon rules. This is the most easiest way ever to make money online. JUST ONE MINUTE TO SEND AN E-MAIL

    Thanks for reading and I hope you can answer my questions.

    -Stef

    edit: I corrected some grammar because I was lazy earlier.

    Very nice find buddy :)

    What you did technically is not illegal, since your not really "cookie stuffing" all you did was give them your link. So not sure how amazon will react on this, but I'm pretty sure you will be paid :)

    With that being said, keep us updated and this is definitely a sweet find :)

    Cool, thanks.

    I hope so. If so I will mail more companies just to ask how much it will be to order.

    And I will keep you updated!
    I dont even know how to get payed. That is the reason I went to other affiliate networks. Cause checks would never come to my home. And I don't got an american bank haha. Maybe payoneer would be an optiion. Gonna wait a few months. Or sell amazon gift cards

    This is legal.

    Basically you got a great lead and seized the opportunity.

    If you keep in touch with this imports company and periodically send them affiliate links with offers, you can probably sustain this. It's 100% legit.

    I think it means conversion on the actual product you linked to. Basically this is saying they clicked on a link for 1 product (the one you linked to) but bought a different product

    Yes you will. They don't have to buy the product in your link for you to get commission

    I think it is legal. Basically, there is a bug in their affiliate system. Thanks for sharing.

    This is interesting, though I'm curious. If you guys mostly order all your stuff through Amazon in your country, why do people go through an import company that goes to Amazon too. Basically I'm asking why don't people order through Amaxon themselves, as opposed to buying the imported products afterwards. Is it lack of internet access or something or everyone just doesn't know about Amazon yet?

    Good job man, if I were you I would send more links to all them companies...maybe not too much to attract Amazon attention. They may try to nail you for promoting aff links through email.

    We live in an unorganized country. If you post a letter to me, maybe if i'm lucky i get it next year.
    Those companies have people in America and in our country.
    And yes alot of people dont't know you can do that. I know because I am middle class. Plus I am not from here but I was born in Holland & i use internet a lot. The poor don't know, the rich do. But still how poor some of our people are. They lend money to buy a phone just to shine.

    Another reason why I don't order online via a company is I can't wait 2 - 4 weeks for electronics. And you have a change that it will break on the way to our country.

    Thanks btw. I know that is why i'm scared. Because amazon will notice that I made 14 sales trough 2 clicks. So I won't do that too much. Maybe just start doing more with amazon and make a few accounts where I sent an mail twice a month to the companies. And I have let one companies safe because I will buy a lot with gift cards aha. Amazon will block my ass if I use my gift cards at the source where the sales come from I think.
