    Can I just shorten an amazon affiliate link with bitly and add it to my instagram bio? No landing page, no blog etc. just the direct link to amazon.
    Would I be banned from instagram or amazon?
    Would there be any other problems?

    ps. Please don't spam this thread with other affiliate programs etc.
    I'm only talking about amazon affiliate program atm.

    I think it should be okay. Make sure you hide the referer (use https://href.li/). Amazon link > href.li > Bitly > Instagram

    Thank you for your answer.
    Why should I hide it if it's ok? I really don't want to lose my ig account or the amazon ac.

    There's not way of losing an IG account because of referer hidding. It's because Amazon. Amazon will see where your referes come from, if they see that they come from your IG profile they could suspend your amazon affiliate.

    No I meant that would ig ban because I added an affiliate link itself, not because of the hider.

    Competition can be petty.
