The sponsored links are there for Amazon to make money by referring people to other sites.
YOU can only post items that are sold ON the Amazon site, and only earn money from the same.

Hi, I just got an email from someone asking if they could place a link to one of my hubs, they never said which one yet, and how much do they need to pay me. As I have absolutely no idea, can anyone give me an estimate please? Thanks
