    Tom,

    This is not one of those dynamic ones which Iam making It's all manufally fed into the database. In this way there won't be any problem even if amazon.com changes its code

    Well

    I think anyone who JUST uses Amazon.com is an absolute fool because their commissions suck, but plenty of Webmasters use it as additional income. It can't hurt to have an extra few bucks in income, you know.

    I have sold Amazon.com more than $3,300 worth of products since I've been online.

    I've already sold 42 items this month alone from my Vin Diesel Website, so that's a lot of extra cash.

    The problem I have is that I have sold AllPosters.com like $1,200 in posters and made FAR more money than for selling Amazon $3,300 worth of stuff. It's just ridiculous. I filled out their affiliate survey and said they need to increase commissions at least somewhat.

    A solid 7.5% to 10% per item should be right, not 5% and sometimes 2.5% (marketplace items). You never get 15%, not unless you run a book review site, in which case... are you a book critic or a businessman? No businessman would review books, they take too long to finish and review and sites of that nature are not profitable. I run a movie review site and they are not profitable either, not unless you are absolutely at the top. That's why I run it. I intend to be at the top eventually, but it's a future investment...

    Amazon.com is still a nice thing to have on your sites.

    That's great. But how much did you get in commission? That's the only thing that matters. The bottom line. The dollar in your pocket.

    Amazon can create all these amazing XML integration features, but the fact of the matter is that their commission rate is only 5% or less. That's not going to make anyone rich.

    We link indivually to scores of books yet NEVER get any 15% commissions, only about 1 in 1000. It's a bit of a red herring, the 15% commission thing. So many exclusions, it's not even worth dreaming about.

    Going back to the theme of this strand, are there any other scripts other than the ones mentioned and Anaconda that make it easier to implement the new XML features?
