    Hey guys, I'm trying to build my first ever Amazon Affiliate wordpress website and I'm in the step of importing Amazon products to it through a plugin I bought.

    My question is, do you make affiliate commission of everything someone "buys" from your site and gets redirected to Amazon to complete the order, whether it is from Amazon or seller?
    I've seen hundreds of products listed by sellers (some listed by sellers and Amazon both). Do you make commission of that too or do I have to pick only the ones that are sold by Amazon itself? And if so, how? Is there a quick way to distinguish them?

    When you send someone to Amazon you get paid, even if it is listed on Amazon by another seller

    Sorry for bringing the thread back but I have a concern that holds me back.

    I'm building an Amazon affiliate eCommerce store.
    I know I can sell both products by Amazon and by sellers.

    But do you believe that it would be best for my site to feature Amazon products sold ONLY by Amazon or by sellers too? What's your own choice?


    Because wouldn't this be kind of confusing for my visitor/buyer? How could he/she tell that the product is sold by a seller than by Amazon, in case the item is let's say used but he/she thinks is buying a new/mint.


    The thing is, when I import the products with prices from both Amazon and sellers the price that's on my site is the lowest seller's.

    For example if a products costs 10$ by Amazon and 4$ by cheapest seller, the price displayed on my site is 4$.



    What the hell should i do?!
