Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers -------------------- Start of message text -------------------- Marlene Here's how to build a generic item link: Take the ASIN (which for books is the same as the ISBN) of the product. Stick "http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/" before it Stick "/evoltorg02-20" after it. Result: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1904151035/evoltorg02-20 All the rest of the stuff is just session info. Martin Subject: Re: [Theforum] amazon (was: half the battle - finance time) In order to add a link to our site for any given book, we have to use Amazon's "Build a Link" generator. It is accessible after logging into the Amazon Associates site. Unfortunately there's no other way I can see to create a qualifying link, so only people with access to the password can generate links. I'm not sure who else should get the password (it can be used to change the address for checks, so I'm not sharing it willy-nilly). For example, I built a link for "Usability: The Site Speaks for Itself" http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1904151035/qid=1026766423/sr=1-7/evoltorg02-20 --------------------- End of message text -------------------- This e-mail is sent by the above named in their individual, non-business capacity and is not on behalf of PricewaterhouseCoopers.
