    That other thread gave me the idea lol!

    I buy approximately for 1.5k CAD of items a month because I do some dropshipping on the side. I can use your affiliate links if you can provide them fast enough when I make a sale. I'd like some backlinks in exchange for my new website (it's french though, but I don't mind if I get traffic or not). That's a few easy bucks I guess

    Here's my sellings on ebay since 2 weeks (I'm not aware of a such metric on amazon, sorry)

    This won't work in the long term, because if you're constantly buying through a couple of affiliate links, those account will be flagged on their system as 'purchases made by someone the affiliate knows' and probably they'll get that 'Account Closed' email as it is against their TOS. It's not worth the risk.

    Oh, really? I wasn't aware of that. I was especially not aware that I couldn't use my mom's purchases to get my cut. Eh!

    Read the OA, it's there. You won't lose your account for a few accidental self of 'family member' purchases. No one really knows where they draw the line, but what you wanted to do originally is a high risk venture that could definitely lead to termination. And when they ban you, they ban for life.
