    Hello,

    Am I thinking wrong or what?
    When I provide my affiliate product link somewhere, and user clicks on that link and gets to product page - isn't it BAD thing from amazon NOT TO DISPLAY my affiliate links on related products??? I mean - if I bring someone to their site, and he then clicks 'related products' and buys something similar to what I displayed him on some forum / twitter / any third party, isn't it a cheating if they rob me of that visitor???

    cheers

    You do get credit for whatever that user buys within 24hrs from Amazon after clicking your link !

    Interesting. They probably set some kind of cookie / session.

    I'm wondering if their API can be used to display those products on some of my own pages, thus selling them directly from my pages (and showing related products like that, as well).

    Still not sure if that is possible using their API, ofc :)
