    Hi,
    i am building up a website to use with amazon, im also building a facebook page which im wanting to place direct amazon links on.
    Is this allowed? Or should i link Facebook > Site > Amazon

    I heard amazon ban for silly things like this and i want to be careful. Also if you create more sites to use with amazon, do you have to tell them about them?

    I got 2 Orders already but im not sure when i get payment from these.

    Thanks for any help :cow04:

    They allow social traffic but you can`t spam links to many social accounts. It`s always safer to use traffic through yur site. If i´m not wrong they allow 5 sites per account (as their ToS says) but you can use 100 tracking ID`s (if you run out of them you can request more). But i have never heard that they ban if you use more than 5 sites. You will get the payment after the same month + 60 days.

    Cheers

    Amazon encourages social media traffic. It gets more people visiting their website.

    I always make a fake blog and hide the referer making them think all my traffic came from my blog instead

    sound interesting, the member should not spam their amazon links but their blogs.

    You should make sure, that your click to sale rate is not too high or too low. Then it should work.
