    Hi guys,

    I recently had a guest post published on another site and they allowed me to place affiliate links in the post.

    I wanted to ask, would I still get commission from Amazon affiliates if my links are on another site?

    Hi, as long as the affiliate link is under your affiliate ID, you will get the commission.

    This question is actually ridiculous. Of course, your commissions will be credited to your account no matter where your affiliate links exist on the web as long as someone buys through your link.

    As long as the site is correct according to Amazon`s ToS (site needs to have amazon disclaimer and so on) you will get commission. Otherwise you may get banned.


    Cheers

    lol... funny question. Whether it is your website or some other website doesn't matter. If there are sales commission, it will be credited to you

    Ok thanks, since Amazon is always updating their terms and services, I just wanted to double check because they ask you to input your website URL into your affiliate account too.

    Looks like I was right:

    "I understand you'd like to confirm whether or not you'd be paid referral fees for purchases that were made through affiliate links on a site other than your own. I'd be happy to further assist you with this today.

    Please know, Associate links can only be used on approved websites that you own or operate. For these reasons, we cannot guarantee that referral fees will be paid for referrals that are sent from websites that you do not own or operate.

    This part is something I wasn't aware of.

    That's interesting. Haven't done affiliate sales through Amazon in about 3 years, so I think this is relatively new. My links were not on a site I owned either. Doesn't Hubpages still allow Amazon affiliate links? Damn that sucks.

    Guess they are cracking down. Good for them.
