    Does Amazon Allow Pop-unders? I read their TOS and did not see anything prohibiting it. Anyone know?

    Having popunder of any kind is force one purpose only. Set your cookie to a popular merchnat destination site. Put Amazon products and pre-sell spin on a page, and let the darn page do the work.

    Mike's right, say what you have to say on your web page. Don't try to sneak your pitch in the back door like you're ashamed to be selling something.

    It's like leaving the store and finding the Herbalife scam flyers stuck on your windshield.

    I was under the impression that Amazon did not use cookies. Do you know if that is true? If it is, then there is no "cookie setting" going on. Right?

    My question is "do they allow it?" I know people have opinions regarding how pleasant it is for the user, but really I just want to know the facts about their TOS.

    Then call Amazon and don't post here about it.

    No one here likes pop ups unders or arounds. You asked and you will not hear what you want to hear.

    Amazon sets a 24 hour cookie, does it not?

    I'm not sure if Amazon.com sets a cookie or just uses session ID's embedded in their links, but in essence it's the same thing.

    If someone clicks through my Amazon link, adds a product that they want to their cart, then opens a new browser and visits your site (getting the popup you're considering adding), you'll "steal" that sale.

    I don't know whether or not Amazon.com prohibits it, but the end result of your popup is that it's no different than any other affiliate program.
