    Has anyone had any success on these?  Apparently, you can set up 100 individual "stores' with amazon products of your choosing, then you get affiliate commissions just like here on HP.

    At first I thought these would be a good deal, but then I found a few reviews on the net saying don't expect more than a few bucks a year from each.

    If anyone has any experience, please share.

      Well, they are free to set up.

      But other than that, none of mine ever made money.

      I went with Amazon affiliate store scripts instead, and am doing very well with my stores.  I wrote a comparison of the various scripts and it's listed on my profile.

    I had one on my website and didn't get any sales at all. I also have my Astore linked on one of my blogs and haven't gotten any sales. Most of my sales come from hubs or blog posts that talk about specific books.

      I have several and sales are always low. They are not at all search engine friendly so you must drive traffic to them.

        How are you doing that may I ask?  backlinking and bookmarking?

          I have the stores set in an iframe on owned sites. Visitors reach the pages via the menu.

          Eventually I plan on phasing them out and implementing a better option.

          To better answer your question, I promote the site, but not the store pages directly.

    Reach out for Bill Manning. He's got a lot of experience with them -- unfortunately pretty much the same as Uninvited Writer I believe.

      One of the secrets may be to leverage the amazon brand to make it reputable instead of just some guys website.  A 'Powered By Amazon' or 'Associated With Amazon' logo could be all it takes.

        And he may well have done that. I don't know. Again, you would have to reach out to Bill for more specifics.
