GNOME Amazon Referral Fees August 2010

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

gnome-amazon August has been a record month 🙂 for the affiliate fees that the GNOME Foundation received!!!! In total approximately $500 has been received from the different stores.

The change compared to last month ($231 in total) is for large part due to the fact that Banshee now has the option to buy MP3 files from Amazon. Through MP3 purchases of Banshee users $175 of affiliate fees were generated. Since the Amazon store is only present in a development version of Banshee I expect we’ll see much higher revenues when 1.8.0 gets released and gets packaged for the major distributions. Hopefully the distributions will not change the affiliate tag to their own.

Hopefully somebody will also add the Amazon MP3 store this into Rhythmbox.

Detailed overview of the August affiliate fees:
