Amazon says that AAP is free to join and is an easy and effective way to improve experience for visitors and make money at the same time.

Amazon Associates provides a cost-per-action advertising model where any associate ranging from large and small businesses to bloggers, authors, nonprofits, personal home pages and more, can easily create a link to a contextually relevant product from the catalog.

Explaining the benefits, Amazon India VP and country manager Amit Agarwal said, "Millions of online websites, small and big, around the world showcase relevant Amazon products and earn high commissions. It is a win-win proposition, your visitors see contextually relevant products and you have a new source of income. Associates in India will have access to the same tools and the trustworthy tracking and reporting that millions of associates worldwide have enjoyed over the last 17 years."

Website owners who sign on for the Associates program also get access to Associates Central, a dedicated Associates portal where associates have the option to build links, view traffic and earnings reports, and read about the latest news and opportunities available through the program.

"We are happy to partner with Amazon via Amazon Associates program" said Quickr CEO Pranay Chulet, "India‘s leading on line platform to buy and sell goods. "We are seeing good results, and are pleased with the program‘s transparency on payments and reporting. We look forward to further deepening our relationship in the days to come."

Associates Central also offers access to a library of convenient and effective widgets, linking tools including text links and rich banners that make this very easy to use for individual and small publishers. Associates also have access to the ‘Associates Site Stripe‘ - the quickest and easiest way to link to any page on Amazon.

Associates with development resources can also use the Product Advertising API and XML data feeds to seamlessly integrate Amazon‘s rich catalog with their content.
