    Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure it violates Amazon's TOS.

    That violates their TOS and you will be banned with a quickness.

    Plus, any potential sale you make from an Amazon link redirected from an IG account won't qualify for an affiliate commission.

    In other words, no commission plus impending ban.

    i don't suggest to use instagram for amazon! There are much better options of monetization such as CPA/ affiliate marketing

    I agree, but everything needs to be tested

    Nope Buddy. As per Amazon Affiliate TOS, it violates their rules.

    Better create small review about the product and share on other social media like facebook and youtube.

    Creating Amazon Affiliate Blog is a good idea to earn passive income. Do you have any idea?
