Amazon Associates Affiliate Program – Experiment 0

Experiment 0 – The Amazon Associates aStore (Discontinued)

I first tried the Amazon affiliate program in 2008. I was fascinated with aStores, which allowed you to select products to sell through an amazon-hosted store. Your store could be linked to directly or embedded on your website through the magic of iframes.

I thought aStores would be a perfect match for my niche websites! Surprisingly, I made 0 commission in the 9 years before they were discontinued. … I literally had people calling me on the phone to ask if they could buy the things I was writing about! But they would not use my a-store to purchase related items.
