What is an Affiliate Program?

8BITSOUL is now an Amazon Affiliate. If you aren’t aware online merchant websites, such as Amazon or Best Buy, pay partnered websites a commission to send them traffic. They do this by providing the partnered websites with links that alert the merchant website where the customer is coming from. If you have a website where you discuss, review, or sell products affiliate programs can aid in revenue generation.

Why is 8BITSOUL using the Amazon Affiliate Program?

We have joined the free Amazon Affiliate program in an effort to generate revenue for the site. 8BITSOUL has lofty goals of providing higher quality content on a more consistent basis. We’ve never made a penny off of 8BITSOUL and it’s very difficult to reach the goals we have without some cashflow coming in. The Amazon links are for items related to products we are discussing, which we believe adds value to our readers experience.
We chose the Amazon Affiliate Program for a few reasons. One it’s a free service for you, and two it’s a free service for us. By using our links you’ll generate us a small percentage while incurring no extra expenses on your end. 

How Much Does it Cost Me?

Nothing. The best part of the Amazon affiliate links is that by using them Amazon pays us for sending them traffic. Your purchases do not increase in price, and we make a small percentage to help keep 8BITSOUL going. If you have any other questions please leave a comment below and we will do our best to answer them. 
If you are planning on making a purchase from Amazon we would greatly appreciate it if you would use one of our links to go to the Amazon website. Thank you so much!
