With all the bullshit from Mobile Ad Networks promising App Developers the world and falling short (Uhh, Mobclix Scam anyone?) this is a good day for mobile app developers monetizing their apps. Amazon offers their brand and it’s one of the most trusted and authoritative Affiliate Programs in the world.
Amazon.com Inc. today announced it is expanding its Amazon Associates affiliate program to allow mobile app developers to link to Amazon or sell Amazon.com products within their apps and get a cut of those sales. Amazon says its affiliate program will help app developers better monetize their apps and games. Amazon will pay app developers commission up to 6% for any sales they generate. Amazon introduced the Mobile Associates API for Kindle Fire and other Android devices, enabling developers to merchandise millions of physical and digital items from Amazon.com within their apps and games.
