Affiliate linking to your own product on your website

    Hi there,

    I sell a physical product on Amazon. I was wondering if you're allowed to use Amazon affiliate links on my main product's official website so customers can buy through Amazon.
    SEMrush
    For example, if my product was called the "Thor Printer" and it was listed on Amazon, and my website was thorprinter.com, can I link to the "Thor Printer" on Amazon with an affiliate link?

    Many thanks

    I don't see why you can't. Either way, you're driving traffic to Amazon and generating revenue for them.

    Does Amazon provide a unique affiliate link, even when you are linking to random specific books? On our podcast website, guests often recommend specific books. Currently I include a bit.ly to each title on Amazon. But I'm not an affiliate, so I'm just giving free referrals to Amazon.

    Why would you do that ? As an amazon merchant, if a sale is made by one of their affiliates, is the affiliate fee substracted from you or not ?
