7 Ways To Get Paid By AMAZON Working From Home

1. Amazon Jobs

This list of 7 Ways To Get Paid By AMAZON Working From Home is in no particular order. First up is Amazon Jobs.

Head over to Amazon Jobs to find 1000’s of job openings working at Amazon’s physical locations. student programs, internships, full-time opportunities, fulfillment center career opportunities and so much more.

Just a few job listings shown below.

The above listings are not work at home jobs but Amazon also offers remote positions. Check out remote career opportunities to see if there is anything of interest.

Sometimes, Amazon has virtual (or “work-from-home”) positions available to qualified individuals who live in some areas. So if you aren’t near a physical Amazon location, or just want to see if there are virtual opportunities in your area, you’re in the right place.

Virtual opportunities are not available in all areas–specific questions about virtual positions can be discussed during the interview process with your recruiter.

2. Amazon Mechanical Turk

Access a global, on-demand, 24×7 workforce

Work from home doing Micro Tasks.

Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) is a crowdsourcing marketplace that makes it easier for individuals and businesses to outsource their processes and jobs to a distributed workforce who can perform these tasks virtually. This could include anything from conducting simple data validation and research to more subjective tasks like survey participation, content moderation, and more. MTurk enables companies to harness the collective intelligence, skills, and insights from a global workforce to streamline business processes, augment data collection and analysis, and accelerate machine learning development.

While technology continues to improve, there are still many things that human beings can do much more effectively than computers, such as moderating content, performing data deduplication, or research. Traditionally, tasks like this have been accomplished by hiring a large temporary workforce, which is time consuming, expensive and difficult to scale, or have gone undone. Crowdsourcing is a good way to break down a manual, time-consuming project into smaller, more manageable tasks to be completed by distributed workers over the Internet (also known as ‘microtasks’).

3. Amazon Flex

OK so Amazon Flex is not working at home but it is working for yourself on your own time and schedule.

If you’re not a writer you can hire people to write books for you. I recommend taking a look at the K Money Mastery course. I did a positive review for K Money Mastery last year.

  • No products or service of your own needed.
  • No warehouse to stock, no orders fills, no customer service to provide.
  • Millions of products to choose from thousands of companies to promote.
  • Simply share links to products and earn commissions

I have been a member of Amazon and I never realized all these opportunities to make money from Amazon. I recently joined the Associate’s program and I thought that was all but now that I have read this post, I am so excited to try more ways of making money through Amazon. There is a book I am also working on and I was worried about publication but this post has solved my worries. Thank you for writing this post and compiling them in one place.

You just taught me another way how to make money from Amazon. I knew about most of these just from being in online marketing for a while, but this is the first time I’m hearing about Merch by Amazon. You learn something new every day! 🙂 

One that you didn’t mention here is Amazon Marketplace. I know that some people go to stores like Walmart or Target and grab a bunch of clearance items and then sell them on Amazon Marketplace for a profit. That’s a big business for some people! 

I personally have used Amazon Mechanical Turk. It’s OK, but you get paid very little per task in most cases. I prefer affiliate marketing through Amazon Associates. 🙂 I also just love to shop on Amazon. lol

    Greg · March 2, 2019 at 2:09 am

    Thanks, Christina. Perhaps I’ll add the Amazon Marketplace option you mentioned in the next update.

Kinggold19 · March 2, 2019 at 12:28 am

This is a really helpful post. I didn’t know that there are other ways of making money through Amazon other than affiliate marketing. All these ways have broadened my knowledge about making money via Amazon. I would like to ask that is it possible to be a full-time employee by Amazon and under what category does that fall. Thank you.

    Greg · March 3, 2019 at 7:36 am

    If your looking for full-time employment as an employee of Amazon, then check Amazon Jobs.

Ayodeji · March 2, 2019 at 12:24 am

Thanks for this, I think going through your content I got to learn a lot, if not much, from what amazon can offer as a whole. It never struck me that are so simple and working for them would be as fun as you described. As a new blogger, I’m looking forward to promoting the site through affiliate links and get paid by them as well.

This is lovely and very insightful. I have always heard about Amazon job, Amazon flex and amazon associates but I have never tasted its benefit this much. you have opened my eyes to the beauty of these channels which I really appreciate. I also found merch by amazon much more interesting than others. I am setting up my blog and I will make sure I implement all that I have learned today. THANKS for sharing 

    Greg · March 3, 2019 at 7:34 pm

    Indeed, you’re welcome.

Babsie Wagner · March 2, 2019 at 12:11 am

It’s funny you mentioned Amazon jobs.  My cousin lives in NYC, and Amazon just signed an agreement to open down there, so she’s been thinking did she want to try to apply and work for Amazon?  I’m an affiliate marketer for Amazon, and I love the ease with which I can find products I want to market in both my niches.  Honestly, just about anything I want I can find on their store.  It’s pretty incredible.  I’m sure they probably pay pretty well, I hear it is a great place to work.  Great article.  I’ll have to pass it along to my cousin.

    Greg · March 3, 2019 at 7:31 pm

    Thanks for the comments. I’m in new york city as well and Amazon is not coming to Queens,NYC anymore.

Nicole · March 2, 2019 at 12:09 am

Wow, I truly didn’t realize that there were so many ways to make money with Amazon. Right now I am an affiliate and out of curiosity, what jobs do you work for them? Are you having success in any part of it? Or are you not working for them at all? Either way this was a nice article, good job.

    Greg · March 2, 2019 at 7:19 pm

    I mostly make money from the Amazon Associates program.

Cyndy · March 1, 2019 at 11:23 pm

I love this post. I knew that they are multiple ways to earn money on Amazon but it’s really great to have them all compiled in 1 place for a reference. Definitely a page I’ll bookmark for future reference as I think it is a great resource. Is Amazon Affiliates the most common way you use?

    Greg · March 1, 2019 at 11:51 pm

    Thanks Cyndy, Yes out of all 7 ways listed above, I do the best with Amazon Associates at the time of writing this.
