Two years ago, Amazon quietly launched its own influencer program, which allows influencers to earn cash by promoting Amazon products on their social media channels or via their own “storefronts” on Amazon’s main site.

In the past few months, the program has gained media attention after numerous “micro-influencers” with anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand followers were accepted into the program, Business Insider recently reported.

Amazon is now paying influencers big commissions to sell its products. We got a leaked document that shows how it all works.

Business Insider’s Lauren Johnson recently obtained a leaked document that breaks down the commission structure of the program. It showed that commissions are as high as 10% on Amazon’s private-label fashion items and as little as 1% for video games and consoles.

“There are people that make $US100 a day – it’s just for side money, it’s not something to get rich off,” Samuel Torres, an influencer who joined the program in mid-December, told Johnson. Yet, he said, “This program really has potential for big earners.”
