Default Need some type of disclosure for Amazon Affiliate Link

I hear if Amazon catches you without a disclosure that you are an affiliate of Amazon they can ban you. If this is true. Where can I get a plugin or disclosure document to put on my sites.

I Would appreciate it.

Thanks

Tom

Amazon's guidelines tell you exactly what words to include on your site.

Peace

Find something to enjoy about reality. It's not going to go away.

This has been repeated so many times on this forum...but still here it goes

10. Identifying Yourself as an Associate

You will not issue any press release or make any other public communication with respect to this Operating Agreement, your use of the Content, or your participation in the Program. You will not misrepresent or embellish the relationship between us and you (including by expressing or implying that we support, sponsor, endorse, or contribute to any charity or other cause), or express or imply any relationship or affiliation between us and you or any other person or entity except as expressly permitted by this Operating Agreement.

You must, however, clearly state the following on your site: “[Insert your name] is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to [insert the applicable site name (amazon.com, endless.com, amazonsupply.com, or myhabit.com)].”

Here you go, a Disclosure Policy Generator.

DisclosurePolicy.org: Disclosure Policy, Disclosure Policy Generator

It's a simple step-by-step tool, and it will generate a policy for you with a multiple choice process. When you get to the final step, it will allow you to type in what companies you're affiliated with.

Be sure to do this with a Privacy Policy as well - that is, include whatever companies you're affiliated with in your Privacy Policy.

Simple squeeze pages convert easily: "Awesome Example"

I tried several times and the generator doesn't work. When I click submit at the last page nothing happens.

BTW does a disclosure have to be on every page?

If you look at KidneyDiet.net (it's not my site just a really good example) you'll see up at the top menu bar the very first menu item says "Compensation Disclosure."

It's very common for each page to have a link in it's navigation menu to a single disclosure page (where you read the disclosure).

You don't necessarily need disclosure text itself on every page (but you do need "Disclosure" visible on every page and it needs to go directly to a Disclosure Page).

I'm not familiar with Amazon's rules but that about sums up what you need to C.Y.A. from the F.T.C.

Also on the FTC's official website there is information that might be useful to you (some of it's open to interpretation -->you know how the gov't is...)

Maybe this (without the spaces) can help you:

ftc. gov /multimedia/video/business/endorsement-guides.shtm

This happened to me too. On the last page, try clicking on the bottom circle and then go back and click the top circle. This is what I did and it worked for me. Maybe it was a coincidence, I don't know.

Does it need to be included upfront or can be buried in ToS?

It's funny. One of the most successful amazon affiliate websites doesn't have ANY indication of the affiliate relationship. Maybe they're a premium partner or something like that? At least, it didn't have one when I searched for it (a month ago or something).

This Is Why I Am Broke

No mention of Amazon!
