How much you earn through Affiliate Marketing?

Earning depends on your audience. If you have a huge audience then defiantly you earn more. It also depends upon the product you promote. If you are promoting electronic products then you will get a small commission. Because Amazon gives very small commission on electronics. Commission rates also depend on upon in which country product is sold. To withdraw your earnings there are 2 methods. 1st is by cheque or Amazon gift Vouchers. If you want your payment in cheque then the threshold is 2500/- INR. So, you have to cross 2500/- INR to withdraw through cheque. But you have to submit some back documents, PAN details etc. If you want in Amazon Gift Vouchers you have to cross 1000/- INR. If you cross 1000/- or 2500/- in this month then you will get payment after 60 days (in Amazon). So, make sure you didn’t get instant payment.

So, in my opinion, you can earn through Affiliate Marketing but you need huge traffics on your site. Go for it, It’s an awesome way to earn.
