Amazon EU amends terms of Associates affiliate programme

No primary category set

The Amazon Associates programme is a scheme that allows people with websites and social media accounts to get a little kickback if they promote an item that is subsequently purchased. Such affiliate schemes are commonplace on the web but Amazon’s is one of the more successful.

Amazon has notified users of the Associates programme that they will be changing some of the terms come May 1st.

You can find the full details of the changes here. There are some changes regarding fees and also related to the tax you might pay on your Associates earnings.

One sentence did leap out that will be of interest: “We may deduct or withhold any taxes that we may be legally obligated to deduct or withhold from any amounts payable to you under this Operating Agreement. Payments made to you, as reduced by such deductions or withholdings, will constitute full payment and settlement to you of amounts payable under this Operating Agreement. From time to time, we may request tax information from you.”

It seems like the tax controversies that Amazon has been subjected to are now under consideration at HQ.
