Can i use ebay/clickbank affiliate links on sites that i dont own and get paid?

10 replies
Sorry for asking this but i can't find a definite answer and the support or discussion boards don't respond.

I plan to use ebay or clickbank affiliate links on several forums or groups where people ask for products, does it work? will i get paid from converts there? or is it like amazon where its legal to make sells from your own site only?

Also, do you think that's a decent plan? is it allowed to answer on product recommendation questions with affiliate links? or will get me banned? i know that using affiliate links on your signature is considered spam but what about answering questions who ask for specific products?

    Dropping affiliate links in your posts is not allowed on this forum or on many others. You'll have to look at each site's TOS for a definitive answer, but it's probably not a good idea to rely on this method as your main promotion strategy.

    1st just posting links ain't working as it is spamming + if people will see that it is affiliate link - unless you help them for free and make a relationship and than send them to you links it will not work...that is why you need to build an email list first...hope this helps + let me know if you want to discuss it more

    If the sites allow it, otherwise it would be spamming. (If I am understandingly correctly)

    I have an idea about using Snip.ly. With this tool you can add CTA link to your affiliate offer from your any links you share from other sites.

    It´s really not a good idea for spamming reasons. It also depends on what are you looking for. If you are serious about making an income I would recommend you to start looking for a high-value affiliate program that actually people can benefit from it. That way you don´t even have to sell it. It just goes naturally.
    If you like to know more about the subject just let me know!

    Due to the current pandemic I will no longer be shaking hands or giving hugs. You may wave, bow to me or give me the finger...your choice.

  • Usually you are not allowed to post affiliate links directly into forums (not only that, any promotion to your sites also), but you are allow to use it on your signature or bio.
    In this case, you can only to make full use of the signature or bio.
