Whoa. Those might still work but they did abandon that format several years ago. Time for William to step in because I don't know about that specifically. But I do see now that the song pages don't have Amazon/iTunes links anymore. Probably wasn't worth the effort to maintain that Revenue Avenue.


I had an Amazon Associates storefront list type thingy like that. Still do, I think. A few years ago I spent hour after hour stocking it with super cool books, music and eclectic, boho doo-dads. After hawking the link everywhere I could - but as I'm the world's shittiest influencer - I made about 5 bucks that xmas and gave it up after that.  Plus you have to have someone maintain it as Amazon and it's vendors is constantly taking things off the shelves, it's a big PITA.

It should.  IIRC that is the original link.  Used to have it bookmarked.

IIRC there was a change a number of years back regarding stating that policy with a direct link for shopping.  I believe that RP still gets a commission but you must click on one of the buttons on the Amazon bar on the song page in order to give RP credit for your purchase.  As long as you arrive at Amazon by clicking one of those buttons, RP should be rewarded for anything else you buy besides music.

Not sure if this is still true after 10 or so years.  Hopefully someone else can confirm.
