Updates to the Associates Operating Agreement Effective March 1, 2019

What's changing?

Effective from March 1, 2019:

  • We aligned our Mexico, Australia and China agreements to our U.S., Canada, and EU agreements so that they’re substantially similar. This means that:
    • We clarified the language around export and re-export warranties
    • We updated the term and termination clause to contemplate suspension and termination for deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity
    • We added that Amazon or its nominee may take legal action and perform procedural acts on behalf of any Amazon party
    • We updated the reference to digital products
    • We clarified that qualifying revenue is less any credits. This is intended to capture customer-facing offsets like Amazon Coins and other potential Amazon credits
    • We added flexibility so that if an associate does not select or maintain valid information for a payment option, we may pay through another payment option or hold earned fees
  • We are expanding on changes introduced last year that reward associates for driving targeted traffic to selected categories of products, to learn more click here
  • We have decreased the rates for Gift Cards to 0%
  • We clarified that e-cigarettes and infant formula are excluded products under the Program

EU Fee Statement Appendix

March 1, 2019 Version

Standard Program Fees may vary depending on whether a Qualifying Purchase occurs from a customer making a Direct Qualifying Purchase or an Indirect Qualifying Purchase and based on the amount of Qualifying Revenues for a Product Category. A “Direct Qualifying Purchase” means a Qualifying Purchase of a Product in the same Product Category as the Product detail page linked to from the Special Link that resulted in that Qualifying Purchase. An “Indirect Qualifying Purchase” means a Qualifying Purchase of a Product in a different Product Category than the Product detail page linked to from the Special Link that resulted in that Qualifying Purchase. If a Special Link does not link to a Product detail page, then any resulting Qualifying Purchase will be an Indirect Qualifying Purchase. “Product Category” means the product category of the Product described in the tables below, as determined by us. We will determine the classification of Products in each category described in the Agreement.

EU Fee Statement Appendix

Standard Program Fees may vary depending on whether a Qualifying Purchase occurs from a customer making a Direct Qualifying Purchase or an Indirect Qualifying Purchase and based on the amount of Qualifying Revenues for a Product Category. A “Direct Qualifying Purchase” means a Qualifying Purchase of a Product in the same Product Category as the Product detail page linked to from the Special Link that resulted in that Qualifying Purchase. An “Indirect Qualifying Purchase” means a Qualifying Purchase of a Product in a different Product Category than the Product detail page linked to from the Special Link that resulted in that Qualifying Purchase. If a Special Link does not link to a Product detail page, then any resulting Qualifying Purchase will be an Indirect Qualifying Purchase. “Product Category” means the product category of the Product described in the tables below, as determined by us. We will determine the classification of Products in each category described in the Agreement.
