Am I allowed to buy from Amazon through my own link?
I have found an item on Amazon I want to buy, and was wondering whether I can write a relevant hub that includes a link to it, then buy through the link to get my referral percentage back for the purchase.
I know you can't click on your adsenses, but since with Amazon you only get paid if a purchase is made, and I intend on making that purchase, I was wondering if maybe it's okay?
I beleive you can buy from your wn. You just will not get credit or your percentage for that sale that you made from yourself and No don't click your own Goggle Adsense!!
Amazon's policy for Associates placing orders for themselves.
You may not purchase products during sessions initiated through your own Associates links and will not receive referral fees for such orders. This includes orders for customers, orders on behalf of customers, and orders for products to be used by you, your friends, your relatives, or your associates in any manner.
Please go to affiliate program amazon help and you will find this policy rule there. I entered the link here but system says affiliate link is not allowed.
No, you are not allowed.
However, if you were to buy off of your Squidoo lens, via THEIR affiliate code, then you could even get a small commission for it.

I know that clicking a google ad on your own page is prohibited and punishable (I believe) with a life-time ban from google, but what if you click on your own amazon and ebay links? Will this get you banned from their affiliate programs?

I read my amazon report about once every two weeks and have never had a click through. I found a link checker in my Amazon associates page and put one of my hubs in in and get this message:Fail: The link above was not tagged or was not a valid Amazon link.Any thoughts?

I was just browsing amazon and while looking at the product, at the top I saw an option of share on twitter and out of curiosity I tweeted the link. So my question is will amazon track that link, it was a short link so I couldn't see my associate ID. I know I would hardly sell any products...
