What do you guys think of the commission structure for next quarter. According to an email I just got, theyâ€™ve dropped the sleazy link requirement to take part in the tiered program. Theyâ€™ve also raised the commission to 7% on â€śqualifyingâ€ť apparel purchases and 8% on â€śqualifyingâ€ť kitchen, tools, and hardware purchases. No word on the $10 cap though. Iâ€™ll admit the 7% looks a lot better than the 2.5%, especially if they can convert on these items the way they convert on books. I just worry about what they might do in the future. I donâ€™t want to spend time building pages only to see the commission drop again after the end of the quarter.

I got unimpressed when I saw how many things of theirs I'd have to sell to get to a decent commission tier!
I can sell ONE itty-bitty thing at a different merchant and have 10% right out of the gate. So, I'll continue to use Amazon only in emergencies--and stick with the flat rate.

Well, if the horrid link requirement goes it sounds better. I wasn't going to waste site real estate with it.
I'm really frustrated with Amazon though, I send visitors through on individual ASINs but still only get 0.74% conversion, and have done fairly consistently. EPC floats around $1-$2.
In other words, I've sent them a whole load of traffic and it's really done nothing much at all. And as for the 15% thing.. well, it does happen from time to time, but not as much as I'd expect bearing in mind people are clicking the ASINs and then puchasing the product. <sigh>
