Are you a California based business that was generating revenue through Amazon’s Affiliate program? If you don’t know already, you’re Amazon Affiliate agreement has been terminated in response to the new California legislation attempting to force sales tax collection.
As expected, there are solutions available that allow you to continue to collect revenues despite the results of the new California law.
Skimlinks, based in the UK, offers “the Amazon rewrite function as a means of helping forum owners manage spam and to allow consolidation of reporting under one umbrella.” This feature can also be used by California based sites to continue to be a part of Amazon’s affiliate program (minus the Skimlinks percentage). Skimlinks account holders simply enable “Amazon Overwrite” functionality for each domain webmasters would like, and Skimlinks will replace all the previously affiliated Amazon links in your content with your Skimlinks Amazon ID.
