How does the amazon affiliate program work for foreign countries?
When I use the amazon affiliate program to link people to products I link them to the UK site. If I were to link someone from the USA to the UK site, will they be redirect to the USA version of the product? If so, will I still get my commission?
Answer: The link will not redirect because is generated at the "associates central". IE: http:/www./astore.amazon.com/greatfashion-20
Also, if the item is bought from your link, commission is expected to be paid.

How does Amazon find a package that was delivered to the wrong house?
I bought a tablet from Amazon and supposedly the UPS guy delivered it to the wrong house. I contacted Amazon about this and they said give them 24 hours to investigate it. How do they find it? Because even when I called UPS they couldnt direct me to the courier to find out which house it was left at. I know I can get a replacement but my house is hard to find as its down a long driveway and with no house number so replacement will be lost too. So yeah, again, how do they find the package?
Answer: From a legal standpoint, that's not your concern.
Amazon resolves thousands of shipping problems every day. They know how to work with UPS and UPS isn't about to piss off their biggest customer.

How to purchase off of Amazon with a Borders gift card?
Ive been having trouble using a gift card on Amazon. When I tried to enter my gift card info and press continue on the second step of the process, it says that I need to enter my credit card number. The only dotted options are for credit cards and money orders, so the default option on that page is always selected as a credit card, even though theres a blank window to enter your gift card number. I know the card has 25 dollars and is more than the book Im buying costs. If someone could help me I would really appreciate it.
Answer: Even if the gift card covers your whole purchase, you still have to enter your credit card info, but Amazon will not charge it in your case. There should be a field in the next step of the checkout for you to enter your gift card number.

Can I transfer an Amazon gift card to a different account?
So I am 14 and I got two Amazon gift cards for my birthday. I put them on my account to buy something, but then I realized that my dad has a Prime account on his Amazon, so instead of waiting 3-5 days and spending $10.00, I could get it to my house in 2 days for free. But I already put the gift cards on my account. Is there a way I could transfer the gift cards over to my dads account?
Answer: Unfortunately you cannot. Gift card already redeemed in one Amazon account cannot be transferred to another. You can see official information in the last question on the page below:
Since gift cards have no expiry date, you may keep your gift card balance, and just ask your dad to help order and pay first. You can help him to buy something back later? See if you can buy some under free super saver shipping, so you can save up the shipping cost.

How can i buy something on amazon with only amazon gift cards?
Ok i have around 10$ in amazon gift cards redeemed already from a free site. When i go to place my order, the message that always comes up is that my funds are insufficient and that i have not entered a credit card number. Do i absolutely need to give a credit card number or will the gift card suffice? (the item i am buying is a very low price and with shipping included the total is around 6$.) Why is my order not being processed, and how can i fix this?
Answer: Nope. I have YEARS using Amazon gift cards and it is no problem. First of all... do you have an Amazon account? if you do, (this is important) do the credits for the gift cards are showing in your account? If it says ZERO, you have to check what's going on with that card of yours.

What are requirements to sell on Amazon and whats good about selling there ?
I want to start selling on amazon, what are the requirements to be a seller?
what is the payment process like? whats good about selling on amazon?
Im an old ebay seller, Frankly im fed up with them.
Also what type of fees are associated with selling on amazon?
Answer: Amazon's great. You basically find the item on their site, click the "Sell yours here" button, and you basically just put in the condition of the item/how much you want to charge for it. No photos! Amazon does the item description/photo stuff if you need. You have to set up an account and give them your direct deposit info so that they can verify your account etc. Then you get automatic deposits every two weeks or so (you can request sooner deposits if you have money in your payments account).
I know ebay charges for listings, but Amazon charges off of your profit (the percentage depends on what item, generally around 10-20%), You don't have to keep relisting your items though, Amazon keeps it until it sells. They also give you a standard shipping credit (based on how fast the person wants it to be sold-standard is 3.99) which is charged to the customer (sometimes you win/lose on that though with what actual shipping costs)
I think it depends on the items though. Like I sell my textbooks all the time on Amazon, whereas I wouldn't necessarily say you can sell EVERYTHING on Amazon (like clothes, etc.) but you can sell quite a bit of decent stuff on there. For example, I randomly bought this clock somewhere with nature sounds etc. thinking it had a radio and it didn't. I think a lot of time passed/lost the receipt etc. so I couldn't return it to the store. I randomly found it on Amazon one day and decided to list it, not expecting it to be sold but I figured, what's the risk? Randomly, all of a sudden I received an email that it'd been sold! And I think I basically recouped all that I'd paid for it.
Basically, Amazon's great, and I highly recommend it compared to ebay (cause you can put something up and not be sure it's going to sell/what you're going to get)! Here's another site which may help you:
Hope this helps!

How do you get Amazon to add published editorial reviews (not customer reviews) to a book listing?
My mothers book, listed on Amazon, has been reviewed by several newspapers and magazines. Only a short sentence from the Columbia Journalism Review is listed. How does she get Amazon to list more editorial comments, for example, from the Kansas City Star? Please note: An "editorial review" from a published source is different from a "customer review." Yahoo answers to a similar question confused a customer review, which is relatively easy to post, with the more difficult task of how to get Amazon to post comments from published sources. THANKS!
Answer: I have a feeling the type of review you're referring to gets posted on Amazon only as part of a marketing strategy. Does your mother have an agent or a publicist? She should ask her publisher or agent to work on this for her; let them earn their percentage of her sales.

How long does it take amazon to complete bank account payment?
I recently ordered a desktop and monitor from amazon using my checking account and the transaction has yet to appear on my online banking account. I ordered them March 23rd, and the monitor has already shipped, but the transaction hasnt shown up on my account summary. Has anyone used theyre checking account on Amazon, and if so, how long should it take for the transaction to appear on your bank account? Thanks.
Answer: Amazon doesn't bill till the merchandise is shipped. If the shipment was just recently, you will likely see the charge show up soon. Just consider the money spent even if the transaction hasn't shown up yet.
How long does amazon take to deliver items?
So, I bought a videogame from amazon on Monday.Its Friday now and I still havent received it, should I be expecting it soon?
Answer: You have to look to see WHO is actually providing the product. Even though you order through Amazon, it may actually be provided by a 3rd party merchant. You order it on Monday, the order is verified, filled and shipped on Tuesday. Then it's up to the shipper which can be up to an additional 7 days unless you request overnight shipping.
How does shipping work on Amazon as a seller?
If I sell something on Amazon, how do I ship it? Since the buyer pays the shipping, how do I actually send the package through the post office without paying for it?
Answer: The buyer sends you the money for shipping. Or more specifically, buyer pays shipping fee to Amazon, and Amazon pays you the sale price less commissions plus the shipping fees
But the Post Office does not know that. And the Post Office did NOT receive the payment straight from the buyer
Since it is you who received the payment, then you pay the PO when you mail the item. It will be YOU who will pay the post office; after all, you already received the shipping fee
Be careful though when doing international shipping. I've had instances when the shipping fee collected by Amazon from the buyer was insufficient because it was a heavy book. However, in the email from Amazon notifying you of the sale, they state that you are obligated to send the item -- EVEN if the shipping fee is insufficient.
Shipping fee is a flat rate, so if you exceed that fee, you cover the deficit
I never shipped international after that. Priority, yes, but never international
