    Merchant question: E-Book, and Amazon Book
    I have an E-Program I will be selling on my website, and will be creating an affilliate network to help me sell the E-Program.

    I am also considering publishing my program, and selling it on Amazon, and linking to that from my site also.

    Would this be considered a "lead" according to merchant best practices? Or would it be fine, and a normal thing to do?

    It's a leak.

    You're creating an affiliate network, or an affiliate program?

    Thanks for your help. I'm not sure about your question, "affiliate network or program". I have a product, and I will have affiliates who will link to my site, and they will get a commission on each sale they send my way. Which is that?

    That means you are a merchant and the people that sell your product for you are your affiliates.

    That's a program, not a network. Good luck.

    OK thanks. So it won't be alright for me to sell my E-Book on my site and also link to an amazon version of the book, if I have affiliates linking to me.

    Affiliates won't link to you if you do that.
