    Amazon affiliate code for Rewards website
    Hey,

    I have the iframe code for amazon banner. What I am trying to do is post this banner on our rewards website, and for each order placed through this link, a certain no of points will be added to that persons account in our website. A similar thing like linkshare and commission junction. can i also do the same for amazon? If so please guide me here. Thanks.

    That's against Amazon's terms. They do not allow members to be rewarded in any way for purchases. Unless you have a contact there that you can get to agree otherwise. Pretty much all of the other networks are fine with it but there are a number of individual merchants who prohibit it.

    That's what I wanted thanks. FYI they apparently have two different agreements and conditions we agree to. "Associates Program Participation Requirements" & "Associates Program Operating Agreement"

    It is not in the agreement, but it is in the requirements.

    Thanks for your help.

    Right. The Operating Agreement actually incorporates the Participation Requirements by reference so you end up needing to read both really carefully. I'm guessing most people do not.

    I meet the same problem as i want to use Amazon.com and Amazon.de in our rewarding website. For Amazon that can take a lot of time to change that.

    1) Change their policy.
    2) Create this ID back-end and front-end functions.

    I like how CJ and GAN and LinkShare made it. It works great! Hope Amazon will do the same. Let's keep eyes open and update that forum post in keys if we hear something interesting in that direction.

    remember, amazon.com says the customer belongs to them.
