Amazon Kills Associates Program in Missouri

Amazon has stopped its associates program in Missouri in reaction to a new state law that would require it to collect Missouri sales tax. The associates program provides revenue to people who refer customers to Amazon through online ads.

A note sent to the program’s members by Amazon stated, “This is a direct result of the unconstitutional Missouri state tax collection legislation passed by the state legislature and signed by Governor Nixon on July 5, 2013, with an effective date of August 28, 2013. As a result, we will no longer pay any advertising fees for customers referred to an Amazon Site after August 27 nor will we accept new applications for the Associates Program from Missouri residents.”
