    hi...

    if i want to link to a page, via a bit.ly shorting to an Amazon page which lists a number of products, say a range of different TVs, such as:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_0_10?url=search-alias%3Delectronics&field-keywords=samsung+tv&sprefix=samsung+tv%2Caps%2C236&rh=n%3A560798%2Ck%3Asamsung+tv

    or, in fact any other Amazon page,

    ........ will this work across different countries?

    Or,.. does the URL have to have an individual product number within it?

    thanks
    Paul

    Any Amazon page will work fine, including search results pages like that. But it needs to be either the full URL or a amzn.to link http://bit.ly/abcdef links will not work as the script doesn't know they have anything to do with Amazon.

    Hope this helps

    its ok Pete..

    ive sussed it!

    If i modify the link in Bit.ly.. the short link automatically changes from an AMZN.to one.. to a BIT.ly one....

    so.. lesson is.. dont edit the original shortened link...!

    thanks

    Pete....

    been testing amzn.to links on the site and my colleagues in the US are telling me that the links point to Amazon.co.uk from the US....

    What do i need to do to activate it?
    I have it activated in WordPress.. but is there something else which needs to be checked before it is enabled?

    thanks
    Paul
