Can one of you kind forum members clarify something for me. I have set up a site using amazon.pl and my affiliate ID shows on all Amazon Links when hovered or clicked.
But when I add the "Buy From Amazon" button my affiliate ID does not appear seem to be included in the URL when I click on the button. I am sure their is a simple explanation for this that I haven't spotted.
Even though it is not showing, will amazon recognise my affiliate ID? OR have I msessed the amazon.ini up?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The behavior is correct. When the "Buy from amazon.com" button is clicked, your affiliate ID will not show up in the Address bar of the web browser. Your associate ID is passed to amazon.com for tracking. The "Buy from amazon.com" is a form that transmits form parameters using the POST method. When using the POST method in any form, form parameters do not show up in the Address bar of the web browser.
If your amazon.key file were not being read by amazon.pl XML, then all links and "Buy from amazon.com" buttons would lead to the URL http://www.amazon.com/ -- that is, only the amazon.com home page.
