    They prefer that you hotlink them rather than download them onto your own site.

    I always just use the image URL from their site instead of downloading them. If you need different sizes or whatever you can manipulate the images via the parameters in the URL string.

    It is best to use the images directly from the amazon website. It is also easier as they give you the product image code for you to copy and paste onto your sites. [​IMG]

    It's probably better to link directly to the images on Amazon.com rather than uploading them to your website. With that said, I highly doubt you will ever have problems if you upload the images to your site.. after all, you are just promoting what's already on Amazon, it benefits everybody. Of course, I am assuming that you are also linking directly to the page where you found the image.

    Using the product images from their site is always the best thing to do and will keep you on the right side and away from any copyright infringements.

    You can upload the images to your site as long as you are promoting Amazon products with them.

    Here is the TOS. It is a good idea to read it twice.

    Code (Text):
    1. https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/agreement/

    1. Description of the Program

    The purpose of the Program is to permit you to advertise Products on your site and to earn advertising fees for Qualifying Purchases (defined in Section 7) made by your end users. A “Product” is any item sold on the Amazon Site, other than any product that is listed on this page (collectively, “Excluded Products”). Product may also include certain services, if any, expressly included on the Associates Program Advertising Fee Schedule. In order to facilitate your advertisement of Products, we may make available to you data, images, text, link formats, widgets, links, and other linking tools, and other information in connection with the Program (“Content”). Content specifically excludes any data, images, text, or other information or content relating to products offered on any site other than the Amazon Site.

    I have just came back to work online with Amazon again after dropping for a year. Because, many of my blog had been banned by Google.

    I start with blogger as same as before. It keeps me worry whether my new blog might be deleted again.

    Can anyone tell me how to work smoothly without being afraid ?
    What tool will suite for my blogger?

    Thank you.
