    hello guys, I recently found out that amazon only pays your comissions fees after 2 months of earning them, I wanted to know how do you guys manage to wait so long to get your hard earned funds

    You have to wait the first 2 months, but after that if you have a steady income you get the payments every month. Once you see those money in your balance it just feels like they are in your pocket :D

    As long as you have enough cash to continue pushing your campaigns I don't really see why it's a big issue. Yeah, getting cash sooner is better (and actually worth more as you can invest it), but at the end of the day I'm not trying to get short-term cash. I'm more interested in how much cash I'll have 6 months down the road than next week, which I think is a better mindset to have in AM.

    If you compare this to a brick and mortar setup the turnaround time is infinitely better for recovering investment funds, and then it's simply a matter of realizing this is a cash-flow situation. As others have said once the stream of income is established as long as you continue to produce commissions then your money just keeps coming in like clockwork.

    Getting through that first two months waiting for your first commission check is no biggie - particularly if you've really got something solid going that can generate strong revenues. All that said, hardest wait I ever had was for a $3k payment NET60, so I do empathize.

    Helps if you have income from other ventures but yeah if your first venture is amazon affiliates then i can imagine the wait is hard to stomach.

    Don't let that put you off though, its worth it in the end.
