Amazon Launches Mobile Program

From Amazon launches mobile associate program

On July 21, Amazon's Japanese branch announced "Amazon Mobile Associate Program.

" This is a new addition to their services for mobile phones. (If you remember, the company introduced Amazon ScanSearch last November, which allows some camera phone users to scan a regular barcode and buy a corresponding product on Amazon's mobile website.)

"Amazon Mobile Associate Program" is a suite of services for placing Amazon ads on wireless websites and getting some commission based on relevant sales

Interestingly, you can also use QR Codes to sell stuff and get commission. Let's say you just got a really cool shirt. Then, get a special URL for selling the same shirt on Amazon using the service, convert it to a QR code, print and paste it on the shirt.

Next day you are strolling in Harajuku with your famous walk, then someone walks up to you and quietly scans the code on your shirt. You feel a bit unconfortable but stay calm and talk to yourself "that's okay, I'll probably get some money."
