Linkmoney App Non-Product Link Report

What is the Non-Product Link Report?

 The Linkmoney App Non-Product Link Report contains an audit of all affiliate links that do not go directly to an Amazon Product.

An example of a Non-Product link would be an Amazon Search link that goes to several different “shoes” instead of linking directly to an Amazon Product. 

What is an Amazon Non-Product Link?

An Amazon Affiliate Non-Product Link is a link to an Amazon page that is not a product page, such as a search page, an Amazon Prime page, or the Amazon home page. This type of link enables the affiliate to gain commission from any purchases made on that page, even if the user does not click on a product.
