    Hey guys,
    Some months ago i started promoting amazon product.
    Basically i chose a product, created a review video on youtube and left it. After some days I got couple of sales for that product and some more sales from other products which i have never promoted and never created ref link for those products.
    As i am new to amazon associates, so dont know how its happening.

    Hope i will get some answers for these related questions:
    Do amazon use cookies for associates?
    Can i post direct ref link on social media (such as i did on the youtube)?

    Thanks.

    I know you Amazon places cookies for 24 hours on someone's PC. So when they see your product (we can say a wrench, and they see a really cool looking drill just by next to the wrench) and when they buy it you get the commission.

    For the second question I am not sure, I mostly use Twitter and use it with bit.ly

    If your visitor gos to Amazon through your link but then buys somethng else within 24hrs you get a % of that, so that is normal.

    They don't like direct linking from utube though and many have been banned for it:)

    you get sale from other product is normal, most of my sales are from the product that I havent promote And about the cookies, amazon have 24h cookies and it seem like they dont want you to share direct link on social media, best way to do it is to create a site and drive your traffic to that

    I might be wrong, but i think sharing your affiliate link on Twitter & Facebook is ok.

    There is even a "share on Twitter & Facebook" button on Associates Site Stripe.

    Am i missing something?
