Since you are reading this post I will assume that you either want to make money working for amazon from home part-time or you are seeking a source of income to supplement your current pay. That is also a good idea. I got you covered.
Amazon is a multimillion company that any jobseeker could dream of working for in their offices or even online as long as they pay mhm! who cares? The giant online was launched in 1994 by Jeff Bezos. Since then.
The company has grown into a popular site to shop from globally. And also, it’s become a great company to work for.
They offer plenty of delivery and factory work options but also work from home opportunities as well. Amazon is continuing to grow and the company likely isn’t going away any time soon.
Apart from the above-mentioned opportunities, amazon also offers programs for online influencers to make an income from making sales. Also, if you are bored you can be engaged in doing some tasks on amazon.
I will explain both opportunities in just a moment, but before that, please do me a favor and tweet this post to friends. and also join our newsletter.
I hope you have done that. Let us get started with worked-at-home factory-based options …
Available factory options work from home jobs at amazon
As said earlier, amazon offers delivery and factory option-based jobs that you can apply and you could be considered. But since I am focused to not only present this post to residents close to the Amazon offices or stores. But also those away but have the expertise to deliver a service or two.
I will therefore discuss available online job opportunities at amazon that you can apply and if considered then get yourself a computer and all necessary devices needed to set an office at your home.
These kinds of jobs may need a previously well-built portfolio though in some instances amazon states that experience is not necessary. This is because Amazon does offer training on what they want you to do for them. You also are answerable directly to your senior at amazon.
Below are three opportunities we found out that you can apply and work at amazon while at home:-.
As a virtual customer service associate, you will act as the first point of contact for customers by answering their queries through phone, chat, or email.
You will be responsible for resolving a wide variety of customer issues and educating them to resolve issues themselves. No previous contact center experience is necessary since amazon promises to offer training.
As a virtual community moderator, you will be in charge of censoring reviews posted by amazon customers to the Amazon website.
You will guard the site against inappropriate content (e.g. illegal or sexually explicit content) and off-topic content (e.g. shipping, seller experience) to preserve trust among shoppers.
As a virtual customer support group manager, you will ensure that associates are supported to deliver a world-class experience. The role will require you to ensure your Team Manager’s priorities remain focused on supporting their associates.
To enable team managers to focus on supporting their people, you will oversee the operational delivery of the teams you lead. Additionally, this role is based on a virtual customer support site, and it will require you to engage and motivate teams in a fast-paced customer service environment.
It is good to note that amazon updates its job vacancy page occasionally so you can always be checking in from time to time.
Amazon tends to offer employees a competitive rate that exceeds the minimum wage. Entry-level customer service reps earn a little less than others bringing in about $11 (Ksh.1,100) an hour. According to PayScale, some of the management and senior Amazon positions can easily earn between $60,000 (Ksh. 6M) and $150,000 (Ksh. 15M) a year!
Make money online working for amazon as an own boss
If you dislike being hired on temporal job opportunities advertised by Amazon and working under someone. Then you may consider these options to work as an own boss though, you still will get paid by amazon.
If you have a large following on social media, consider looking into the Amazon Influencer Program. To be an Amazon influencer you have to have a YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter account.
They do want you to have a certain amount of followers and you can check if you qualify through their website.
YouTube and Twitter are real-time approval, but Facebook and Instagram could take up to 5 days to check and approve your account.
If you have an audience outside of the United States, you can still get credit for sales in some areas. You earn a commission every time an item you refer to your following is shipped.
Amazon has its own version of a way for businesses to hire crowd workers to complete simple tasks. MTurk is a place for a business to turn if they get overwhelmed and need some tasks done.
There is where you can come in handy by completing some short tasks for extra cash.
Some tasks you might be asked to do involve researching data details, content moderation, and data deduplication, and transcribe audio recordings.
The more tasks you complete, the more you’ll get paid. Work has to be approved by whoever requested you to do it then you are eligible to complete it and get paid. You can be paid in either Amazon gift cards or bank transfers.
3. Sell on Amazon
Another great way to earn on Amazon that you probably already know about is selling your items. You can create a seller account here. This is a paid service and you have two options. You can either pay $0.99 for each item you sell or $39.99 per month for an unlimited amount of items.
You may also use this page to create a seller account to help find more selling options available on Amazon.
4. Amazon associate program
Amazon associate program is the most popular option amongst most online influencers. It actually works like any other affiliate program where you get served with a general referral link to use to promote amazon products.
You also can generate either a direct product link or search results referral link using its internal affiliate link generator.
When the Amazon Associates Program launched in 1998, there weren’t many easy, affordable ways for Internet entrepreneurs to make money online. But as Amazon has expanded its product line, the ability to make income from Amazon has become easier due to its huge customer base, and credibility.
Like any other home-based money-making scheme, earning an income with Amazon requires research, work, and marketing. Below is a step-by-step guide to creating an associate account (if in Kenya).

Pros of joining the Amazon Associate program
There are several great reasons to join the Amazon Associates program, including:
- Amazon is a highly visited, well-known name that people use and trust every day.
- It’s free to join.
- There are no traffic thresholds or other metrics you need to be accepted into the program.
- There are tons and tons of products you can promote.
- Amazon has many tools to help you sell specific items or a category of items.
- There is a good reporting system so you know what’s getting clicks and what’s selling.
- You can receive direct deposit payments into your bank account (Europe-based only).
- Amazon offers good customer service to its buyers, so you reduce the risk of having your visitors get mad at you if they have a problem with the product.
- Even if your visitor doesn’t buy the product you referred, if they buy something on that visit, you earn a commission
Cons of the Amazon Associates Program
Nothing is ever perfect, including the Amazon affiliate program. Here are a few downsides:
- The commission rate is relatively low compared to other affiliate programs, 1% to 10% depending on the items. It offers flat-rate for the bounty programs, such as $15 for business account sign-ups, $3 for Prime referrals, and $5 for Audible referrals.1
- Their cookies only last 24-hours. That means if your referral doesn’t buy within 24 hours, you won’t get credit. (However, if the product is added to their cart, the cookie lasts 89 days.)
- You’re not allowed to send Amazon affiliate links in emails. That includes blog posts that get sent as an email. Since email is an excellent way to send great offers to your readers, this rule is particularly disappointing.
- Payment options are only through direct deposit, check, or Amazon gift card. There’s no PayPal nor Skrill option.
