If we sell about 250 copies through that link, we might just get amazon to pay us something :) Awakenings link was kinda dead though.

I know some sites give a percentage of the what ever sales occur through a referral link. I was just wondering was amazon’s system similar, I guess not. :( April 17, 2006 at 6:23 pm #30972 Anonymous We get a % for each book sold. That has to reach a certain amount before they will send us a cheque though. That happens to be about 250 books worth i think. I havnt really worked it out. Dave April 17, 2006 at 6:41 pm #30973 Anonymous Is it restricted to certain books? I’d imagine a lot of gd.ie members buy a lot from amazon might be a way to cover bandwidth costs and allow events to be arranged. Just an idea.
