I am researching the above, and my OS is windows 7. There is a company : storeonlinellc.com that develops a ready made site filled up with all Amazon.com products and since the sale will be done thru Amazon, thus eliminating your own merchant account. I have been trying to find whether this company does have a link to promote Amazon.com products thru their affiliate sites and that will get paid. Also what is the payout rate for each sale? Hope someone with some or any knowledge could advise me. Thank u.
