Support MVS at NO COST To You!

Let's make a small effort that may help Matthew's Volvo Site a LOT!

I go to Amazon several times a day and spend WAY too much money there.

I just changed my Amazon BOOKMARK to this:

https://www.amazon.com/?tag=matthewsvolvo3-20

From now on, MVS will get some money when I go to Amazon!

Thanks for the reminder on this.

I do have a question for Matthew. Do you get a report on how many purchases were made ?? I never quite trust this process as there is no traceability between the first click over and when I purchase something. Meaning Amazon doesn't show that a % of my purchase went to help Matthew's site. I never feel confident that any purchase I made really contributes to the site in question. I wish I knew how this all worked and how the recipient know they are getting what they deserve .

Regardless, I did update my bookmark for amazon. Now I have to remember it's there instead of just typing amazon into the address bar.

Thanks Amblerman and Eddystone. Amblerman, you're correct, there is no transparency in this process. I think Amazon likes it this way (or else they would have changed it obviously).

They don't want to help this along because that % comes off the top of their take. They take the haircut.

I do get a report however. This report offers no identifying info as you'd expect. Essentially it shows product, # of orders it got, and the product's price. Here are products from that report for the last 30 days:

Ok great. I figured they couldn't send you personal info but it's interesting you're seeing actual product names as opposed to "Hey 5 people bought 5 things". I'll make sure I buy through the link.
