    It turns non-affiliate links into affiliate links, for places like Amazon, etc. A brilliant business tactic, as that revenue is just sitting there. They're going to make a fortune.

    "...approximately five thousand merchants (Amazon won’t be included)"

    Useful to see who exploits it first and does something like this guy did with Uber.

    Yeah it seems like a wicked revenue method. I could imagine them adding a couple more million dollars to their annual revenue.
    Which brings me to my question...is Reddit on the stock exchange?

    Reddit or Imgur needs to find a way to let users monetize their Reddit activity.

    They are using Viglink! :p

    They'll fail in this attempt for sure.
