    I didnt get this email, If they do cut it to 2-4% max that would cut my amazon income in half and yea then imo it wouldnt be worth putting everything in it but still a decent side income to build something else on.

    Little dramatic title there, but ya that would seriously suck. Like every bloated company they get so used to being the king and squeeze all they can from affiliates. We will see if it's isolated or a large scale, I haven't got that email yet. I also wonder if it's on certain products or what, I haven't seen the actual fine print of it.

    Very few people in here make enough from Amazon to receive this email.

    Didn't get the email luckily. Seems noone knows why they got the email? I hit 8.25% each month so it can't be the 8% tier triggering it.

    They're probably "Testing the waters" so to speak.

    Thinking about this, I do remember getting an email of Office Products getting cut down to 4% like electronics. I wasnt that affected by it.

    Amazon may be slowly cutting it down. Who knows. Just bank and maybe I should sell my sites :D jk relax

    Keep us updated OP thanks

    AM yet to receive the email.
    Is there any legit "Zeros" before you'll receive this email?
    Is it for the big earners?

    Hope this does not happens. I love Amazon affiliate program
