What About Existing Affiliate Links
You don’t have to change any of your existing links. Just head on to your Skimlinks Publisher Hub, click on the Toolbox section and enable the “Amazon Overwrite Tool”. Now this is a really cool tool which will save you the effort of updating existing links as it will overwrite all your previous Affiliate links with your Skimlinks Affiliate links. And even if those links were for any Amazon Store, now those links will work across almost all the Amazon Stores.
Creating New Links
Creating new affiliate links is easy, just go the site or product page of the product you wish to Market, and the Skimlinks Editor automatically scrolls down, showing the commission offered and affiliate link as well as the short link. Just Copy and paste the link in your content it’s done. This applies to Amazon as well as to all other merchant sites.

Skimlinks makes payments to Publishers at the end of every month and you have the options of receiving it via Paypal, Bank transfer or Check(USA Only). A minimum threshold of $10 is applied to all payments. There’s no up-front cost to sign up, install and use the Skimlinks service. In other words, you pay zero/zilch/nada/squat to join – so you can try it out without any risk or commitment. Skimlinks works on a revenue share model with merchants which allows any kind of publisher, big or small, to give it a go. For Skimlinks and the tools, the split is 25/75 – which means you get paid 75% of the commissions earned.
While 25% of the commission may sound high, you would still make substantial profits as the Commission rates are higher than other programs. Also you’ll be making more money by saving on all the affiliate business you were losing till now.
