I bought something for the first time on Amazon, through the W's Amazon affiliate....thing is, I don't know if it worked or not, as I had to select from different items that didn't show on Amazon's page, but on some reseller's site or something.

The item in question isn't on the SPENT page, either.

Can anyone suggest how it works?

You buy something, months later I run the report that outlines what people have bought and puts it on the SPENT page, hopefully it's on there. (I'll try to run the report tomorrow)

Oh, so it's not an automatic thing? I get it.

Another question: if I were to access Amazon's site but not through THE W, is there a way to mention you as an affiliate or would it be better just to go through the site?

They key off the tag we attach to all our links so you have to click on something here. I think. I'm sure there's some sneaky way to add &tag=thewmessagboa-20 (or whatever it is) to your URL but it's a lot easier to just click from us to them somehow. (Also, we have an entirely different tag for amazon.ca just in case you wanted to go there instead)

That would be helpful - I think Amazon's pretty brilliant, and I'll be using it more often.
