Way to go minimizing the problem there, LA Times. The number of affiliates affected has been widely reported to be 25,000 rather than 10,000.

I'm guessing the 25,000 figure is closer to the truth since a lot of things you can buy on line is either coming out of California or New Jersey because (I'm taking an educated guess here) of the ocean ports in those two states. Basically a lot of stuff coming into the country through those two states, probably a lot of ware houses in those two states, near the ocean ports.

Since Amazon affiliates have absolutely nothing to do with product handling, their proximity to ocean ports is entirely irrelevant.

Amazon affiliates post advertising links on their websites. They then get commissions from Amazon based on sales coming to Amazon through those websites.
