    Hello, I will keep this short & quick

    I was thinking about using FB Likejacker script for some of my Amazon affiliate websites and just wanted to make sure if it's allowed. I haven't noticed anything related in Amazon TOS about this.

    Basically it's not related with Amazon affiliate links at all as I'm jacking my website itself. Do I miss something?

    So based on your opinion or facts I'm missing is it allowed or not?

    Thanks.

    All it takes is for 1 person to complain (after being clickjacked) about your site to host or even amazon and you will get your account banned.

    IMO, I wouldn't do it considering it takes 60 days to get paid out..

    Clickjacking is clickjacking even if its not in the Amazon tos you will probably have issues if someone reports you. The proper way to do this would be to use a 3rd site (not your money site) to clickjack traffic for a FB page and then push your money site or amazon directly from the FB page.

    Yeah like jacking using a totally diff site is better. Because the user wouldnt know how they managed to like a page when they see it on their status, they would just think they had forgotten about doing it.

    Amazon has banned for far less in the past. Even using a third site is sketchy. Not saying it can't be done, but you have to be super cautious.
