    Hi, I know that Amazon does not allow direct paid traffic to their products, but I can drive traffic to landing pages. Im intent to use facebook ads to promote Amazon products. So my question is :
    - Is it possible? DO you have any suggestion?
    - Does facebook allow to promote Amazon products?
    Thank you in advanced.

    build facebook page.. and put your amazon link in the facebook page post. it legal. But don't put your amazon direct link to FB Ads.

    If u wanna advertise with FB ads, u cannt use a direct amazon product link, however, you can use amazon.com as the display url of the ad, but drive the traffic to another website / landing page using a good cloaking platform.

    I must say that cloaking is against FB ads TOS, so if you get caught, your account can be banned, hence, you need a really bulletproof cloaker.

    I tested promote amazon products with facebook ads somedays ago. Facebook allow cloaked links and direct affiliate links. However, I spent $300 for facebooks campaign and I made $40 with amazon. What a pity. Now I know that facebook users dont like to buy somethings on facebook.

    It depends on the product you're promoting. Amazon's payout isn't good enough and its not surprising given their margins. Wouldn't fault facebook users for that.
