    When i was reading trough there website, it says that i only get commission trough a specific link of the specific product they buy. Am i missing something ? How do i get the affiliate link to just direct them to amazon and get commission on anything they buy ?

    They give you different widgets to post on a site, i.e. search box, flash carousel of a product of your choice. I have an online magazine and it works pretty well. They also have some some very visually-appealing widgets, however the commission is only 9-10% or something. Reviews are the most viable way to market amazon, otherwise I'd stick to CJ, azoogle or epn.

    When you send traffic through your link, they get a 24hour cookie. You get credit for anything they buy in that time frame.
