    Yes, but beyond that Amazon has a link maker where you can include the product photos. No one is going to complain about you posting photos of a product that you're trying to help market/sell.

    I can't see how they would have a problem with this when you are using the pictures to promote their products.

    Just make sure you download the photos to your own site. Don't just hotlink to their pictures. Besides wasting their bandwidth, hotlinking is a dubious habit to fall into, and it'll screw you over if they decide to take down the images.

    Yes and copy the image from Amazon to your folder with the exact product name as the saved image. It's always better to use product images on your website as opposed to banners and make it a clickable image with your affiliate link.

    Mark :)

    Ohh thank you guys, by the way what do you think that is the perfect affiliate link: an image with my affiliate link, only a link to the end of the text or buy from amazon picture?

    Text links work better. Make your visitors click on your affiliate links and just get them on Amazon.

    Yes you may use the images. Just make sure to also have your affiliate links to amazon in order. I guess the best answers are given the above posts

    I hope so :) I'm pretty sure none of us affiliates would have any images if we could not. If someone fnids out differently I hope they let us all know!

    Hi Keeponfalling,

    Yes you can use the pictures from Amazon, but an even better way is to use their widgets tool, as they update and monitor how the widget works, meaning you don't have to!:cool:

    Go to your associates page and then at the top look for the blue widgets tab, click on this and follow the easy step by step.:confused:

    Cheers
    Tony
