eReaderIQ is a price tracking service for Kindle books. Our goal is to help you make easier, faster and smarter purchase decisions for your kindle. We strive to help you spend less time shopping and more time reading.

Prior to June 2016, eReaderIQ was able to support itself by earning income from the Amazon Associates affiliate program. What this meant is, each time a user purchased a Kindle book using a link from my site, Amazon gave me a small commission. Those commissions were enough to support the site as well as my family for about 5 years.

As of June 10th, Amazon has disabled my affiliate account due to violations to their Terms of Service. Apparently, I was not allowed to display historic ebook prices, nor was I allowed to send tagged (affiliated) links via email. I was aware of the email rule, but, based on conversations I'd had with employees within the Amazon Associates program through the years, I felt like they were willing to overlook that violation. They were not.

Without the ability to track historic prices, eReaderIQ would have no purpose, so I can't simply fix the violation and reapply for the program. I am in need of a new way to monetize my site. With the popularity eReaderIQ has gained in the past few years, I feel that Patreon is a good place to start.

Thank You!

All opinions about my site matter, but as an Opinionated eReader, your opinion will be weighted heavier than others. eReaderIQ has always been built around user feedback, but there is never enough time to implement everything. This is a chance to get your ideas to the front of the line.

If I decide to implement an idea from an Opinionated eReader, I will happily include them in the development and testing process if they would like.

This is what it costs to keep eReaderIQ running each month. If I can hit this goal, I will be able to pay for all of the services required to keep eReaderIQ running smoothly.
