Hello,

today I saw two different facebook ads, which advertised - mens clothing (outfit) jacket, jeans, shoes, clock, shirt. On the Image, there was 6 numbers. In the description there are amazon links (with number of the outfit) with the ID from the affiliate. Is this allowed? From Amazon?

I'm sorry for bad english.

    You can not link directly from Facebook Ads to Amazon. It is against their T&S.
    You can direct traffic from FB to your website or to a landing page related to that product page..
    I will try to do a case study about that if you are interested in..

    Sorry, but who's T&S is it against? I read if you purchase a Facebook Ad, you are able to use that link as an affiliate link to a product. I spoke directly with an Amazon representative a few weeks ago and they said that any sort of affiliate promotion is allowed, so I doubt that Facebook Ad would against anyone's terms and services.

    Well
    I saw today 2 ads. from a 1,2 million likes fb page, which advertised a crap gadget (affiliate) from amazon. So I wonder, why he/she doesn't get banned.

    Hello friend,
    It is sorry you are not allowed to bring Amazon affiliate links to FB ads due to their rules.
    You are allowed to drive FB traffic to your website.
    Moreover, as i know, FB ads prohibits some kind of affiliate links due to FB rule as well

      Hi Steven,
      You can run FB Ads to your website or to your fan page but you can not run it directly to Amazon....
      You need to have a website or a page that you control ...no direct linking...
      It is like Google Adwords .. but you can have an affiliate site and run traffic to it via FB Ads....otherwise FB will not make money that way...

      Simo

    I think your Facebook Fan Page needs to disclose that you are an Amazon affiliate.
