    Amazon Cuts in Commission spark outrage on web
    Here is some information I found:

    Article on cuts:

    ======================================
    From Amazon Affiliate Board on Amazon.com:
    ======================================

    Call, write, fax and email Amazon (do all four). Letters and faxes are most effective. Amazon must know how the associates feel about this horrible new rate structure or the rate structure will stand. They will change it if there is an uproar from enough people. In your letter give all the reasons why the new structure will hurt Amazon and you. I encourage all ELECTRONIC SELLERS who advertise to write.

    The electronics sellers are effectively out of business if they advertise to drive traffic to their sites (myself included). We need to have the rates returned to where they were for the 1st quarter. We all need to stand together on this one. I have nothing to lose since I am out of business as an electronics seller, as are hundreds or thousands of other electronics sellers who advertise their sites to drive traffic. If we do nothing this horrible mistake will stand.

    Good luck to all associates.

    We need loyalty returned with loyalty from Amazon.

    I haven't even check if I had any leftover Amazon links in my Mall. haven't logged into their site since I trashed their horrible treatment of affiliates back in 1998...

    Happy not to be an affiliate of Amazon.com
    Just a squirrel trying to get a nut, in the Internet jungle.
