Amazon.com Affiliate Program allowed on Free WordPress.com (not .org) system??

  1. Hello!

    I'd like to confirm that the affiliate program with Amazon is one of the exceptions to the "no affiliate allowed" regulation and CAN be used on the WordPress.com system.

    Many thanks for your help!

    The blog in question is socialeyesnyc.com

    The blog I need help with is socialeyesnyc.com.

  2. You cannot have an Amazon store on a free hosted WordPress.com blog. Note the narrow exception in italics:

    Affiliate marketing blogs: Blogs with the primary purpose of driving traffic to affiliate programs and get-rich-quick schemes (“Make six figures from home!!”, “20 easy steps to top profits!!”, etc). This includes multi-level marketing (MLM) blogs and pyramid schemes. To be clear, people writing their own original book, movie or game reviews and linking them to Amazon, or people linking to their own products on Etsy do NOT fall into this category. Here is a thread in the support forums that talks more about which affiliate links are OK or not OK. http://en.wordpress.com/types-of-blogs/
