Amazon slashes commission rates for Amazon associates program

Because of the business interruptions caused by COVID-19, Amazon is adjusting their fee schedule starting April 21st 2020 for their Amazon Associates Program. Like many publishers, I was confused as to what fee % will stay the same vs. what changed. So, I took the time to create a revised fee schedule that show’s what stay the same and what changed.
