WARNING: While this technique of uploading an image from Amazon and using the text link will still work, Amazon's TOS says it is unacceptable and they will ban accounts using this technique.
So, you are limited to using the image link in the SiteStripe.
Don't get banned do it the way they recommend.
Sadly, unless you take your own image of a product this means that adblockers will block your image. You will want to provide a way for a text link to work if this happens.(When it happens)
Amazon won't work for everyone in the States. Certain States have implemented what is called a Nexus Law. In these States you can purchase Amazon products but Affiliates are excluded. I believe some of these States are Colorado, the Carolinas and Georgia. Things might have changed so check to see if you live in an excluded State when you sign-up for Amazon.
In this training I cover:
- How to add an image to your post
- How to align your image
- Where to sign-up for Amazon
- How to grab an image from Amazon
- How to link an image to Amazon
- How to insert an Amazon Image
- What happens when you encounter an Ad-Blocker
Note: In this tutorial I place an Image and an Amazon Image on the same page to demostrate how to do each. You will want to use the Amazon Image. Amazon's changed TOS prohibits the use of an uploaded Amazon Image (you can still use an image from elsewhere if you desire).
I hope you enjoy this and that it answers the questions that you may have.
