I got an announcement yesterday that Amazon was now making Kindle books available in their affiliate program. That was big news to me, but it wasn’t the most noteworthy thing about the email.
Instead, I was struck by the language in the message, which didn’t make any mention of affiliate commissions, but made a number of references to the advertising fees affiliates could earn.
While I can’t recall if Amazon used the word commissions in the past, this is the first time I noticed that I could earn advertising fees.
Since industry semantics have been an issue in some states with regards to the advertising tax, I would think this sort of wording would be a good idea for other affiliate programs and networks to use.
