What is the CPAUG Amazon.com store?
CPAUG is part of the Amazon.com Affiliate program which means that CPAUG receives a percentage of any sales that we drive from our website using Amazon.com banners, affiliate links on cpaug.com/shop and the website. This percentage ranges from about 3-6% with some types of items being higher or lower. Amazon.com uses a tracking cookie to keep track of conversions. Every little bit helps as CPAUG receives no outside funding of any kind! We appreciate your support! All proceeds go back into the group — the snacks we provide at events are funded in part by these sales.
How do I use it?
The most common way is to go to CPAUG.com/shop and click on one of the Amazon.com links there or use the Amazon.com links on the right sidebar of each page. You can bookmark those links yourself too and skip the step of coming to CPAUG.com when you shop.
Hint from Tamara: Add items you want to buy to your Amazon.com Wish List then enter the store via the CPAUG affiliate link.
At times, we will have special promotional banners or links that you can click on too that will take you to specific items (though anything you buy after using the link “counts” – not just that item). These tend to be around special Amazon sales – be sure to check it out for the upcoming holiday shopping season including Black Friday and Cyber Monday!
What items can I use it on?
EVERYTHING! You don’t have to only buy books or software on Amazon.com. Anything that you buy on Amazon.com after going through the CPAUG.com/shop affiliate links counts as a sale for CPAUG. So, buy diapers for your kids, kindle books, MP3s, a hammer, anything from Amazon.com….just be sure to start from CPAUG.com/shop (again, good idea to just bookmark it!) so that the sale is tracked and counted for us.
Use it on your own sites too!
Selling any products on your own site and want to help CPAUG? Just contact us with a link to the product on Amazon.com and I’ll send you a special URL that you can use on your website. Any sales that you get through your site will give CPAUG a small percentage.
