    Running Amazon Affiliate links through Facebook Ads?

    I am having a site with Amazon Affiliate links on it and going to use Facebook Ads to promote my site and increase sales for Amazon products. Is it valid? I ask this because I have never tried this method before and I am afraid if it is illegal with Facebook ad's TOS?

    It really depends on your target market and geographical locations. I'm from the Philippines and Facebook I think prohibits link promotions. Everytime I advertise my links, Facebook gives me a warning that posting affiliate links according to their community standard is prohibited. But a year ago it was okay.

    I am under the understanding that facebook doesn't mind you doing this, but amazon does and will shut users down for using affiliate links in FB ads. Probably worth a shot though if you can target an audience and suggest a relevant product.

    Can I know the reason for this? By their TOS'?

    Yes, I think the best way is to read all TOS carefully, or ask your account manager (if you have one).

    You can promote your website which has Amazon links, but you can't promote direct Amazon affiliate links.

    You can use facebook ads to bring user to your affiliate site then user might click the affiliate link to go to product page on amazon. But, you can't promote direct affiliate link to amazon.
