Amazon Affiliate Program

Amazon Affiliate Program

You may have noticed the “Amazon Logo” button in our menu. By clicking on our Amazon button or simply typing kcsm.org/amazon in your browser’s address bar to initiate your Amazon purchases is another way that you can help the station stay in the black and on the air.

Amazon.com partners with KCSM, and other public broadcasters across the nation, and generously donates a percentage of your purchases back to the participating station, in this case KCSM. By using any one of these buttons to get to Amazon.com to make your purchases, KCSM receives this donation directly from Amazon at no additional cost to you.

In our search for other ways besides eternal pledge to raise money for KCSM, it is very gratifying to have this type of corporate partnership.a trickle of revenue that helps us; access to music from a web-based retailer that helps you. It’s a win-win situation, made a little sweeter by the fact that our partnership with Amazon is valuable enough to them that we get twice as much that they give back to non-NPR partners.

So next time you have a hankering to whip out that credit card and go shopping online, would you mind taking a little detour through your favorite KCSM webpage? You’ll be helping us out and get an extra good feeling about whatever it is that is going to be showing up in your mailbox in one of those distinctive brown packages!

Thanks for all of the many ways that you help to support KCSM!

    So what is the percentage that Amazon donates and why is it not stated in the article?

      Thanks for the question. Their donation structure is based on what the purchaser buys. It can be from 1% to 10% on each item, so the amount and total percentage that Amazon donates to KCSM varies every month depending on the items purchased.
