If I had known that yesterday you would have gotten lots of money as I bought an extensive collection of different birthday and christmas presents - now it is too late :(. But I will surely look to support the podcast via amazon in the near future (christmas is coming up!!).

Post Re: Podcast Amazon Affiliate Link??
Personally, I think links like that are totally reasonable and I encourage podcasts and blogs to do things like that. I may be biased, since we do it, but I guess it all depends on where you're coming from. We use so much data that our podcast hosting from Libsyn costs about $100 a month, so I don't think it's unreasonable at all to put it out there. Many people are only too happy to help support productions that they care about, especially if they would have been making the purchase already.

If you guys get one, I am planning on using my Amazon account for pretty much all of my Christmas shopping this year, so I will be more than happy to go through your link to make the purchase.

I don't object to adverts on YouTube when I watch my favourite producers when I know it brings them cash, don't see why this is any different!

I signed up Amazon Canada, UK and Germany. It could take a couple of days to get those accounts approved so I will add the links to this page later. For now, it is just for Amazon USA:

Very cool, I will test the Amazon-Germany option as soon as I buy anything.

And I see it that way: You do not have to be shy - you also have a "Donate" button on the front page - so why not putting also the Amazon-Link there? You deserve that your commitement here at least pays itself. And in fact it costs us - listeners - nothing, and brings at least something. That is a great possibility.

Some things to point out for all dedicated members of House Manwoody - to maximize the reward with some easy things (I just read the rules regarding affiliates for amazon Germany - if something is totally wrong, please correct me Amin, or delete the post at all if you do not want these informations shared):

- For Amazon Germany the maximum reward is 10€ for each order we make. So depending on the percentage (ranging between 5-9%) it is better for aPoIaF if we order two seperate times for 100€ than one time for 200€ (normally you do not have to pay shipment if the sum is high enough, so you can split your orders easily without any disadvantage).
- You have to put the things into your basket in the same session when you clicked the link - otherwise it does not count. But I also found that all products that are purchased in the last 24 hours count together. That makes especially my first point a little harder to manage - but still, easy and it does not cost you anything to split your orders and wait another 1.5 days to start another one.
- MP3s will bring 10% - coupons 6% (always and fixed)

To sum that up: House Manwoody gets the most out of your Amazon-orders if you always order your things in bunches between 100-200€. In fact the "optimum" - if I read that all correctly - is an order of 112€ (all except MP3s and coupons) / or 100€ (only MP3s) / or ~167€ (coupons) - because that would bring the exact maximum reward of 10€ for each order.

With that we can bring Amazon to pay even more for House Manwoody - awesome.

Thanks for the info brynden.

I've added Amazon Canada, UK, and Italy links up there. Others will come later as they are approved by the respective Amazon sites.

Just bought my dream book on amazon UK via the link. Amin, can you confirm if you got the affiliate cash? Doesn't really acknowledge it on the email confirmation but if it works I'll definitely use it again!

For those that were asking (as you can see we get only a minor percentage, but if you were going to buy something anyway, then it is better than nothing)

US link:
Best of Joy Division Amazon.com $9.77 3.99% 1 $9.77 $0.39
Singles Amazon.com $22.08 3.99% 1 $22.08 $0.88

UK link:
Collected Papers on Alexander the Great Amazon.co.uk GBP 104.50 5.00% 1 GBP 104.50 GBP 5.2

Nothing showing up from Amazon Germany yet, we'll see in a couple days.

5% is actually a pretty good commission! I reckon this could roll into sth quite big if all Manwoody dedicated listeners did all their shopping via Amazon. I still think you should make the link more obvious on the front page of the APOIAF site to drive traffic. Anyways, it works so I'll continue. Is the higher commission rate valid at £100? If so, I'll bundle purchases.

Now that I see it works, I'll use the link for Amazon purchases.
Good Luck!

Thanks so much guys. I hope that we can indeed through a link up on the homepage. It's nice to know that you can do your holiday shopping (or any shopping) and support something you enjoy at the same time without spending any extra money.

Amin told me that my purchase brought ~5%. I hoped for more - but maybe that will rise if we buy more and more. Nevertheless - it is a easy and good possibility to support your effort. I would wish we found that out sooner - Mimi would be rich by now ;)

Make a banner. I just found this and I have been on here for like a month or more. I am an amazon shopper. Ilike buying through them. If I can get their from here easily, I would be glad to do it.

Seriously though, put one on each main page and make it easy to find. Most message board have some kind of ads on them and at least the hosting could be paid for and you guys could save up for the iron throne replica.:-)
