      This is exactly why he asked you If you did your own research, you obviously didn't or you wouldn't be asking for links to Amazon TOS or Facebook ads.

      That's two simple Google searches, seriously, try it.

      Most affiliate networks and PPC services restrict some countries because they have a history of abuse or in the case of PPC very few advertisers.

      I understand had you written that in the first place the conversion would have made it more clearer

    In theory, your Amazon India account can be used worldwide, but you'd be unlikely to get many sales from outside India because of the added shipping costs and delivery times. Unless Amazon has changed its terms recently, you'd need to open a separate account for each foreign territory you wanted to target - and bear in mind that the commission rates and some product stipulations will vary from country to country.

    Once you have set up your other Amazon accounts, you could use a plug-in (if you have a WordPress site) to detect the location of your visitors and automatically divert them to the relevant Amazon product/site.

    Did you know that if you log into your amazon associates account and clicked the "Help" tab that there is a link to the Operating Agreement, as well as a link to the discussion board. Why, you can even contact them if you so choose.

    Good Luck, you are really going to need it

    Your question was answered by Frank. It seems when you initial question is answered you go on to another question and another...the rude comments are not helpful.

    One link you might start with:

    You have create affiliate account for each locale. So, if you have an amazon affiliate id from India than you will only paid for sales made in India.
