The Amazon Code Scam

The Amazon code, also known as the AZ code, promises to give you the formula that will make you thousands of dollars a day in commissions in absolutely no time at all and with no experience needed.

This scam has been around for years and resurfaces every so often. This scammer is selling a ‘package’.

It’s about becoming an Amazon affiliate which means promoting Amazon products and earning commission on subsequent sales.

One man reports that he bought the “package” and it was instructions for how to be an Amazon merchant which means selling as a business on Amazon and clearly is of no use unless you already have a business selling products that could go on Amazon.  Presumably this was a case of the wrong package dispatched.

Being an Amazon Affiliate

To become an Amazon affiliate, you need to apply to their affiliate program called Amazon Associates and they give you affiliate links for the products you want to promote.

You then promote those products as you wish and if people buy then you get paid commission of (up to 10% of the price. You don’t actually sell the products and you don’t need stock – you’re just sending people via your affiliate link to Amazon and hoping they will buy things.

A lot of people make money this way – it’s perfectly legal and can be a good business for some.

But, there’s a lot of competition and it’s not easy to make money unless you are very organized and efficient and a great Marketer.

The AZ Code claims you will make $40K a month, but even if you managed to make $40K in sales – that’s just the sales figure and the cost of the product, delivery etc. come out of that so any profit will be significantly less.  To make $40K profit per month means selling huge amounts of stuff.

The sales pitch for the AZ Code contains a lot of testimonials saying how wonderful it is – but you have to question how valid these are – are they recent or many years out of date, are they genuine or paid for actors or simply made-up?

The AZ Code Documents (as reported by a recent purchaser)

There are four modules.

Module 1 – A basic introduction

Module 2 – Auto Website Building.

Automated website builders are very quick and easy to use but they produce basic website whereas if you want to stand out and actually make sales then you need something better. WORDPRESS websites are free and much better generally.

Module 3 – Traffic

Traffic means getting people to your website in large numbers.  The module includes an auto traffic generator. Not recommended.

Module 4 – Start Making Money

The fantasy of making money with little to no effort grabs people’s attention but the reality is hard work is required and these products do not live up to expectations.
