View Full Version : Pre-Order Season 7 to Support Gateworld?

On the main page of Gateworld it says that if you pre-order season 7 it will support Gateworld. Yet when you click on the link it takes you to a page at amazon.com.

How is it supporting Gatworld?

Because Gateworld has a deal with Amazon- for having a link to Amazon on Gateworld, Amazon pays 'em back by giving 'em a teensy (ha'pennies) portion back for every purchase made via the link.

MY question is, what does it apply to? If I wanna buy S6 on DVD and click the link, I assume that counts, too, right? Does it ONLY count for Stargate stuff, or can I go on and buy unrelated things and still be "supporting" Gateworld by doing so?

I could go nuts on spending if that's the case. ;)

Well that makes a lot more sense. I just went to the main page an clicked under store and if you click on either DVDs, Videos, Books, or Music it takes you to amazon. So maybe you can buy anything Stargate related to support GW?

EDIT: I just found this on the Gateworld FAQ:
How can I support this site?
That's an easy one ... visit! GateWorld is here for you to enjoy. An occasional click on a banner ad for one of our sponsors also helps our ad revenue. If you'd like to help financially support the site more directly, buy something nice for yourself! The site receives a percentage (usually between 5 and 6 percent) of every dollar you spend when you visit Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk through GateWorld's links. (Your cost for the item is exactly the same -- GateWorld just earns a piece of it.)

Yep! If you follow a GW link to Amazon, we'll get a commission on anything and everything you purchase on that visit. Many thanks for supporting the site.

Really? Hmmm... I think I'll set one up for SGO and order all my Amazon stuff through that :P

Awww and they're even doing all that "free shipping" stuff. How nice of them to help you help Gateworld. :p

So you're telling me, if I purchase my semester of school books through Amazon, by clicking on the link here at GW, a percentage of that purchase will also go to GW?! Wow, that's great!!! Especially considerring how expsensive some of these engineering books are.

'Zactly. Anything Amazon carries. Engineers are most welcome!

Alas, Teal'c my friend, the great irony of the Amazon affiliate program is that you can't buy stuff for yourself just to get a discount. When I buy stuff from Amazon, I go looking for someone else's Amazon affiliate (I've used FarscapeWorld.com's a few times).

If you do and Amazon finds out, yer busted.

Ah, but if my website's owner were to set it up... ;)

Bah, what do I ever buy from Amazon anyway :P

Wait, there's a discount? Or is that just for the people who have the site link thing (as in Gateworld workers/owners)?

I was just thinking, it would be nice if I could sell the books I don't need anymore on Amazon marketplace and have a percentage of the price go towards GW, regardless of who buys them. Too bad it doesn't work like that... ah well.

GateWorld

No, Asgard Buddy, no discounts above and beyond Amazon's already low-low prices. :)

Since I live in the UK, would it still work with the .co.uk domain? Just replacing the .com with .co.uk. I'm wondering because I'd support GateWorld if it does!

Wow... been a while since I culled through a good bookstore. I'm behind on several series. Gettin' S6 too, of course. Maybe a few others. This is dangerous... :D

Anubis, GateWorld does have an Amazon.co.uk affiliate. Just click one of the UK links at http://www.gateworld.net/store/!

It's a pity that they don't have a affilation with EzyDVD in Australia, but they are rather behind, but any support is better than none.

Hmm... so everything you make on the purchase after taking the link works? It doesn't only work when you take direct links to the pages? That's good to know... when I got season 6, I also got Andromeda season 1, but since there was no easy-to-click link from the Andromeda page, I went via the link to some random Andromeda season 2 set... so I hope y'all still got the money...
