NATE is an Amazon Associate - this means that everything that is bought by following an Amazon link from the NATE site earns NATE a referral fee. This process is automatic - you simply complete your purchase as normal.
Amazon has a very wide range of goods on sale, from books to computers, from CDs to hedge trimmers. You can also buy new and second hand items from its Market Place sellers. Many NATE members already buy from Amazon, so this arrangement means they can help NATE without changing their shopping habits. Reports from members who have used the Associates programme confirm that the system is straightforward and profitable.
No: you pay the displayed price, whether you buy from Amazon or from one of their Market Place suppliers. As usual, you should be aware of the delivery charge, which will be shown before you confirm your purchase - though you can often reduce or eliminate the charge by selecting 'super saver delivery'.
No: you are buying from Amazon, not NATE. Data protection law forbids Amazon from divulging any details about its customers. Although Amazon Associates can see what items have been purchased, they have no way of knowing who has bought them.
All purchases are with Amazon, so you should contact the Amazon customer service department if you have a query. We have chosen to link with Amazon because we are satisfied that they provide good value and reliable service.
We would encourage you to support your local bookshop if you can. However, you may live some distance from a good bookshop, the stock may be limited - or the book you want out of print. Amazon can deliver both new and second-hand books to your door - and in addition you can buy a wide range of other goods.
Yes: when you go to Amazon via the NATE site, whether by using the search box or the direct link, Amazon recognises the special code that ensures NATE is credited with any purchases you make. If you buy several items in the same session on the Amazon site after using the NATE link, NATE receives the fees for all your purchases. However, if you go away from Amazon then return to shop there later without using the NATE link, we won't benefit, so please always use the NATE link when you shop at Amazon.
No: please still use the NATE bookshop for our own publications. It is more beneficial for NATE to supply its own stock directly to you. Because NATE is a small publisher, you may also find that Amazon charges an additional fee for supplying our books.
