    I want to show Amazon video on my website where I write reviews about some amazon items.

    I am thinking on that short video, usually 1-2 minute long where they explain their product.

    Is there some way to use them same like you can use youtube videos. I am using wordpress.

    Thanks.

    Better create your own review video instead of using Amazon's

    If it's written in their policy they will ban you 100%.
    Try to make your own video, it's not that difficult.

    You wouldn't want to use their videos or user reviews.

    Create your own videos - or have someone create them for you.

    I cant, because I publish smaller things on my website and creating video for each would just take up to much investment :)

    I will confirm, he posted a direct link to Amazon's TOS, it doesn't matter WHAT someone else says like "no, been doing it for 3 months", because when discovered, BAN!

    I can assure you, that you cannot even download and host their images.

    I can also assure you that you have to use API for that.

    And I can also assure you, that you even have to give them credit for the image like "source - amazon.com" etc. I can send you a copy of convo with their support if you want.

    So downloading and embedding videos will get you banned before you say "lowered commissions"

    Funny you won't take Amazon's word for it but would listen to a member of BHW. Even though it's in their tos on their website

    I believe everyone that was between the age of 7 and 17 in the 90's had heard that song, at least in Europe. Are you that old? :D

    Edit: Sorry to keep spoiling the thread, but damn that song brought me back.
