Amazon used to be THE go to Affiliate starting point, Amazon make it SO easy to write up a review and get links, that show the product, the up to date price (displayed via Amazons own servers) that it really is a no brainer….

That is until last year when the commissions rates fell by a large amount, some up to 50% , making certain products very marginal in profitability.

I had a Kitchen Goods site, the income was only slightly affected, but things like electronics  tumbled in pay-outs , many affiliates made the decision to go elsewhere to start their sites.

If you’re going with Amazon, there is still a decent 10% commission rate in  the Fashion Niche with Apparel, Shoes, Jewelry, Watches and Luggage.

Also a 7% rate in the Furniture, Home Improvement, Home, Kitchen , Paio, Lawn & Garden and Hand Tools niches.

It is still probably worth going after the Pet Niche or Beer/Wine, Baby, Grocery, Beauty, Health & Personal Care or Stationery Supplies at 6% commission.
