To register for Amazon Affiliate Program in Nigeria is something almost everyone finds difficult complete. I’ve found out that most bloggers and affiliate marketers like you and I are struggling to get Amazon affiliate account fully registered but never succeed in completing the registration. The common problem that I used to have is Phone verification issue. I have written a guide that will help you get into the Amazon affiliate program In Nigeria plus how you can verify Amazon phone number issue.
What Is Amazon Affiliate Program?
Amazon Affiliate Program is a program managed by the world largest online store. They have varieties of products that everybody would love to buy.
The Amazon Affiliate Program (Amazon associates) allows you to promote links on your site and get paid when a customer purchases a product through your unique affiliate ID.
If you are new to Affiliate Marketing, I want to explain how affiliate marketing works and very lucrative for you as a blogger or publisher.
How Amazon Affiliate Works
Amazon will pay you as an associate through commissions when someone makes a purchase using your unique affiliate ID and there is no limit to what you earn from doing your job as an affiliate. A product from Amazon costs $3,000 USD and a customer purchased that product through your affiliate link. If Amazon is to pay a commission of 30% for that product that person purchased, you will end up earning $900USD for that product the customer purchased through your link. I hope that’s clear to you and by now you understand how affiliate marketing works.
PS: Note you will not earn a commission of 30% on products because every product and category has their own commission rate, Amazon Affiliate Program commision rate starts from 4% per Item and varies with products
