Associates Program Policies

Associates Program Fee Statement

These Associates Program policies (“Program Policies”) are incorporated by reference in the Associates Program Operating Agreement, and capitalized terms used in these Program Policies and not otherwise defined here will have the definitions provided in the Agreement.

Associates Program Fee Statement (“Fee Statement”)

1. Qualifying Purchases and Qualifying Revenue
We will pay Standard Program Fees described in Section 3 of this Fee Statement in connection with “Qualifying Purchases”, which (subject to the exclusions described in this Fee Statement) occur when:
(a) our customer clicks through a Special Link on your Site to an Amazon Site; and
(b) during a single session, which is measured as beginning when our customer clicks through that Special Link and ending upon the first to occur of the following: (x) 24 hours elapse from that click, (y) our customer places an order for a Product, other than a digital item sold under the name “Amazon MP3,” “Amazon Shorts”, “eDocs”, “Amazon Video”, “Amazon Software Downloads”, “Game Downloads”, “Kindle Books”, “Kindle Newspapers”, “Kindle Blogs”, “Kindle Newsfeeds”, or “Kindle Magazines” (a “Digital Product”), or (z) our customer follows a Special Link to the Amazon Site that is not your Special Link (a “Session”), any of the following happens:
i. our customer purchases a Product via our 1-Click feature, or
ii. our customer purchases a Product by adding a Product to his or her shopping cart and completing the order for that Product no later than 89 days after their initial click-through of the Special Link, or
iii. with respect to Digital Products, our customer purchases such a Product by streaming or downloading it from an Amazon Site; and
(c) our customer actually receives and pays for such Product.
For each Qualifying Purchase, the corresponding “Qualifying Revenue” is equal to the amount we actually receive from that Qualifying Purchase, less any shipping charges, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, service charges, rebates, credit card processing fees, and bad debt.
2. Disqualified Purchases
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Qualifying Purchases are disqualified whenever they occur in connection with a violation of this Associates Program Fee Statement or any other terms, conditions, specifications, statements, and policies that we may issue from time to time that apply to the Associates Program, including the most up-to-date version of the Associates Program Operating Agreement (collectively, the “Program Documents”). For example, no Program Fees are payable for a purchase that is not correctly tracked or reported because the links from your Site to the Amazon Site are not properly formatted, or for a purchase through a Special Link that violates the terms of the Program Documents.
Additionally, the following purchases that would otherwise be Qualified Purchases are disqualified and excluded from the Associates Program:
(a) any Product purchased after termination of your Associates Program Operating Agreement,
(b) any Product order where a cancellation, return, or refund has been initiated,
(c) any Product purchased by a customer who is referred to an Amazon Site through any advertisement that you purchased through participation in bidding or auctions on keywords, search terms, or other identifiers that include the word “amazon”, or “kindle”, or any other trademark of Amazon or its affiliates (see a non-exhaustive list of our trademarks here, or variations or misspellings of any of those words (e.g., “ammazon”, “amaozn”, and “kindel”) (all, a “Prohibited Paid Search Placement”),
(d) any Product purchased by a customer who is referred to an Amazon Site by a link that is generated or displayed on a search engine (including Google, Yahoo, Bing, or any other search portal, sponsored advertising service, or other search or referral service, or any site that participates in such search engine’s network),
(e) any Product purchased by a customer who is referred to an Amazon Site by a link that sends users indirectly to the Amazon Site via an intermediate site, without requiring the customer to click on a link or take some other affirmative action on that intermediate site (a “Redirecting Link”),
(f) any Product subject to a Bounty Event (as defined in Section 4(a) of this Fee Statement, with the corresponding related Special Program Fee) or purchased in a subscription (other than the initial purchase of the subscribed Product), and
(g) any Product purchased by a customer, where such customer does not comply with the terms and conditions applicable to the Amazon Site.
3. Standard Program Fees
Subject to the limitations described in this Fee Statement and compliance with the Associates Program Operating Agreement, we will pay you standard fees described in this section (”Standard Program Fees”), calculated as a percentage of Qualifying Revenue, as follows:
For Qualifying Purchases of Products within product categories specified in Table 1 below, the Standard Program Fees accrued will be the corresponding fixed rate of Qualifying Revenue specified in this table:

4. Special Program Fees
From time to time, we may run general special programs that may provide all or some Associates the opportunity to earn additional or alternative fees (“Special Program Fees”). For the avoidance of doubt (and notwithstanding any time period described in this section), Amazon reserves the right to discontinue or modify all or part of any special program at any time. All such special programs (even those which do not involve purchases of Products) are subject to disqualifying exclusions substantially similar to those identified in Section 2 of this Fee Statement, and any restriction under the Program Documents applicable to a Product purchase will also apply on a substantially similar basis as restrictions for special programs.
The following Special Program Fees are currently available to all Associates:
(a) Bounty Events
As described in the table below, you will earn Special Program Fees described in this Section 4(a) in connection with “Bounty Events” which occur when (1) our customer, who must be eligible for the Bounty Event as described in Table 2 below, clicks through a Special Link on your Site to a bounty-specific homepage on an Amazon Site, and (2) during the resulting Session our customer completes the bounty action described in Table 2 below:
