Hi Happy! -

Why don't you want to paste the full Amazon link in an eMail?

Hi Davy, I did and I check it not working. Anywhere I told her to go ahead order direct from Amazon don't have to get credit for it.

That's a shame Happy!

I don't know why Amazons direct affiliate link would not have worked to be honest!

This is from amazon help pages: While you are welcome to use link shortening services, the link checker will not be able to verify that these links are functioning as intended. Please remember that you must clearly state that the link in question will take the user to the Amazon site when clicked and ensure that the site on which you are posting the links includes the required statement to identify yourself as an Associate. You must also be able to provide detailed information about the site(s) on which your links have been posted if we request it.

We do offer our own link shortening tool that can be used with Product Links. To shorten your links, search for a product from the Associates homepage under “Quickly Add Links” and choose the down arrow next to the item you want to advertise. A message box will appear and you can select “Shorten URL with amzn.to” and copy the short code for your site.

I'm with Crayder. I use bit.ly to shorten pretty much everything, although I don't usually shorten Amazon code links.

Not sure, I just copy and paste in the text edit mode. Then you update and go to visual edit mode and most appears, depending on the type of code you pasted, then preview to see if it looks proper.
Have not investigated shortening it, but I am sure there is a way to make it easier to use. To me its just a couple clicks and then done.

Kim, I have done it before, but this one said to have to paste in the website, but I don't want to. My friend wants to buy something
From Amazon, all I want just a link put in the email so she she can click
on it, thus I can get credit for it.

I suppose if you have an account as an Amazon Affiliate you should just be able to cut and paste the url of the product in Amazon and then link it in your site, so she just click on it and then you still get credit.

Use Bitly.com to shorten the link. It's free. Just past the link in the box, click the shorten button and Presto! Copy the new shortened link.
