    Okay i just thought of something stupid, but the idea is to set up a product that you created on amazon. that product i would sell for 1000$, lets say its a hammer, and i have my friend buy the hammer through my other friend affiliate link. 80-100$ profit.

    Are you sure your friend would be willing to buy a hammer for $1000?

    It was an example, no one is buying a hammer for $1,000.

    I know it was a bad example by OP, but you missed the point entirely.

    Good thinking, OP. Worth checking out further.

    Well it's not illegal to buy stuff from your own affiliate links, and even if it is on some programs they wouldn't do anything about it, but in this example I would assume Amazon would earn more than you do on the affiliate program.

    If OP and others really can't see the flaw in this method then it is very worrying.
    OP needs to get a basic book on Business/Economics.

    OK, then the only option is to test the method. Now your objective is to find two clowns to help you.
