Ways to earn money on Amazon

There are many different ways to earn money on Amazon. Every way has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Sell old stuff

You can start selling your own stuff on Amazon. This can be clothes you don’t wear anymore or old technical devices. This works the same as on Ebay. However, you need some old products which are still worth to earn good money but if you have some old stuff you don’t need this can be a great way to earn fast money.

Sell products

If you have a product you want to sell you can use Amazon as a distribution channel. There is the possibility to send Amazon your products and they will take care of the distribution. This can be a great opportunity because you don’t have to take care of a web shop, the payment, and the delivery. Amazon will take care of this. Of course, they will get a part of your sales but you have less to take care.

Sell Ebooks

Delivering books made Amazon as big as they are now. I don’t know if you know this but Amazon started by delivering books. Then they added CDs and DVDs. Since this was running very will they added more and more products. And today they deliver almost everything.

They also have own products like the Kindle. I’m sure you know about the Kindle. And you can use this technology they have invented. You can write your own ebook and sell it to every customer with a Kindle. An ebook can be a great way to earn good money. You need to take care of the marketing but once the sales of your ebook are enough you earn money without doing something.

If you have already made good sales with your Ebook you can also sell your own book on Amazon. They have created the opportunity to sell your book. All you need to do is to visit the “Amazon Author Central” and there you can create your first book.

As you already have the text, the cover, and the title of your book the effort is very small. This makes it possible to access even more people.

Affiliate Program

Last but no least there is the Amazon Affiliate program. This can be a good option for everyone with a website. Let’s say you have a blog about fishing. So you can, for example, write a review about a fishing pole and add a link to Amazon where they can buy this product.

If they click the link and they buy something you get a commission. That’s great but that’s not all. The great thing is that if somebody follows your link and buys something completely different you also get a commission. If you have a link for a book and somebody buys a refrigerator you get the commission of a refrigerator. (And that’s a lot)

But isn’t the commission of the Amazon Affiliate program comparably small?

In the Amazon Affiliate Program, the commissions are smaller compared to other affiliate programs. But why can Amazon still be the better choice? Because usually, Amazon is converting much better than unknown webshops. The reason for that is that Amazon has built a huge foundation of trust in the last years. Everyone knows that Amazon is no scam so they are much more willing to buy something.

As you can see, despite the lower conversions, the Amazon Affiliate Program can be the better choice.


As you can see there are different ways to make money with Amazon. Depending on your current situation one way can be better than the other.
