    Hi to all BHW members,

    There are a few doubts that has been bothering me since the few days ago... For your information, I decided to open an online bookstore that related with "Amazon Associates".

    I just found out that there's two options for the buyout buttons :

    1. The "Add to my cart" button
    2. Buy now at amazon.co.uk button

    Well, I know, once a customer clicked on the "Buy now at amazon.co.uk" button, he/she will be forwarding to the product that being listed on amazon.co.uk. I didn't need to take care of the product shipping, since amazon will take care of it.

    However, what if the customers click on the "Add to my cart" button? In this case, am I the one that responsible to proceed the orders, including find the require products, send out the package and shipping it to my customers?

    Oh, by the way, would you mind to recommend some good eCommerce platform provider for online bookstore?

    Hopefully, someone will shed some light on me here and clearing my doubts...

    Thank you very much.

    As an Amazon Associate you are not responsible for processing orders, shipping or anything like that. Your role is simply to send visitors from your website to amazon, you will get a commission from every sale you refer to them. If you are interested in an eCommerce like system to showcase amazon products then the only two I have personally used are associate-o-matic and freshstorebuilder. I would however recommend you spend some time learning about the amazon associates program, you'll find a few good posts on BHW and YouTube is also a great place for some beginner tutorials and guidance.
