Viglink/Amazon Question

Hi!

I've searched the forums and read the Viglink wizzle. I haven't found an answer, but that could just be my overlook. I am thinking about removing my amazon affilliate code and let everything go the viglink. I have not been making many sales at all lately.

I saw the update on the viglink wizzle saying that amazon did not like viglink. I'm not sure what date that was added, so I don't know if it's still relevant.

Anybody have any answers to share?

Abby :)

When American Amazon affiliates lost their accounts due to affiliate nexus laws, they often switched their links to Viglink as a workaround. Amazon now prohibits that. I'm not sure if that's why you would say Amazon hates Viglink. 

Amazon belongs to Viglink voluntarily. They aren't forced to, so I can believe they hate it. 

I just checked the Amazon listing on Viglink. It is a restricted merchant which means that you have to apply for the program. I'm betting this is so they can check your location. 

Here' a link to the Wizzle that mentions it http://wizzley.com/viglink/ . I would contact Viglnk if you're not sure your links are working.

Perhaps you might revisit your Amazon marketing strategies. Amazon is a great revenue stream. Think about it in a consumable train of thought. 

I do so much shopping on Amazon. I am not alone. I buy health and beauty, clothes, shoes, books, on and on if Amazon has it I buy it, my daughters buy it everyone I know buy it on Amazon. 

When looking for something online people tend to search the word....

Say I want Bee Pollen I will Google

raw granular bee pollen

nine times out of ten the top search will result in a amazon link... that is if your keywords are good  just saying

I tend to pick an article before a direct Amazon link because I want the product review... I know I will end up buying it on Amazon BUT I prefer getting a good product review as does EVERYONE...

I make money on Amazon and would never EVER think of walking away. Amazon is only getting bigger and picking up a broader client base.

I was only curious because my Amazon sales have dropped to next to nothing. I didn't know if it would pay me more on what sales I do make to switch to Viglink.

If you are only at the 4 percent tier, it might. I don't remember what the Viglink rate for Amazon is. I don't promote it that heavily. You can go to the merchant listing and see what Viglink is getting.

AbbyFitz,

I wonder why you would not want to use Amazon affiliate links. They offer upwards of 4 % commission. My clicks dropped after Halloween but they are picking up now.
