    Most know the cookie length for Amazon is a mere 24 hours but i have heard that if the customer puts an item into his shopping cart it is extended to 90 days!
    Is there a way that will not break the Amazon T/C that lets you automatically prompt your traffic to add an Amazon product to their shopping cart and therefore get a longer cookie life?
    I have heard of a plugin available has anyone had any experience with such a thing?
    Would this do it?

    Amazon associates tracking is https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/help/t2/a11 and anything added to cart pays commission if checkout occurs within 90 days of adding it to cart, https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/help/t1/a10 but if they catch you auto-adding you'll get terminated and not paid.
