    So I'm new to facebook ads and was wondering if they allowed direct linking to an affiliate offer.

    For example:
    My network provides codes which look somewhat like this:
    hxxp://www.affiliatenetwork123.com/aff=1234&offer=1234

    That link then redirects to the actual sellers landing page.

    Now I noticed facebook has a rule which says:
    The link I will use in the ad (like above) is not a direct link to the landing page but it redirects everybody who clicks on it to the landing page. Does facebook allow that?

    Don't feel like getting banned before even making any moneys :\

    No they don't like direct linking. Unless it's a clickbank product.

    Im not sure, but you could buy a .com related to your niche, then use it to redirect to the lander?

    LOL!

    Any more suggestions? I though about using the actual sellers lading page at first then once they approve the ad changing it to the aff link but heard that people get insta ban for that if facebook finds out.
