Amazon Welcomes Back California Affiliates

Affiliates and rejoin program after governor repeals law.

Remember when Amazon fired all of its California “associates” because the state said affiliates created a nexus in the state and was going to force them to start collecting sale tax?

California governor Jerry Brown has repealed the affiliate tax law and Amazon is inviting affiliates to rejoin the program. Here’s an email Amazon.com just sent to former affiliates:

Hello,

As you may have heard, California Governor Jerry Brown has signed legislation repealing the law that had forced us to terminate our California Associates. We are pleased to invite all California Associates whose accounts were closed due to the prior legislation to re-enroll in the Associates Program.

If you haven’t already re-enrolled, please click here:

When asked to sign in, please use the same email address and password that were previously associated with your Associates account. To make your return to the Program as seamless as possible, when you re-enroll, your account settings (login, Associates ID, payment information, etc.) will be the same as they were previously.

For further information about re-enrollment, please click here:

As I’ve written before, the goal of the law makes sense, but in real life laws like this never work.
