Perhaps if we write more it will benefit both us, the writers, and the admin during these difficult times.  I am still willing to add articles.

Hi guys,

Am glad to hear the good news. I, too, would like to update my pages and add new ones. Maybe with the revamping of Amazon links, the tech team can easily format them to match the new Amazon requirements. Here's what I received from Amazon:

 

Hello associate,

This is a recurring reminder that any time you share an associate link, it’s important to disclose that to your audience. They will trust you more if you are transparent about where you are directing them and why. To meet the Associate Program’s requirements, you must (1) include a legally compliant disclosure with your links and (2) identify yourself on your Site as an Amazon Associate with the language required by the Operating Agreement.

To comply with Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regulations, your link-level disclosure must be:

1. Clear. A clear disclosure could be as simple as “(paid link)”, “#ad” or “#CommissionsEarned”.

2. Conspicuous. It should be placed near any associate link or product review in a location that customers will notice easily. They shouldn’t have to hunt for it.

In addition, the Operating Agreement requires that the following statement clearly and conspicuously appears on your Site: “As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.” For social media user-generated content, this statement must be associated with your account.

Associates should also consider the relevant social media platform’s guidelines. For example, Associates may use Facebook’s Branded Content tool.

With Zazzle being an unknown as to whether the links bring in affiliate revenue, if you show your own Zazzle products you at least will earn your commission.  And I freely use the images from my own Zazzle.  So, just showing my products is of value.  And the links might actually work as affiliate links.

Yes, that's a good idea. I'll try to do that.

Good news! The Amazon module is working properly again. Thanks to some tenacious trans-Atlantic efforts we were able to access the new Product Advertising API of Amazon and get the full functionality back!

Thanks for hanging in there with us! (◕‿◕)​​
