1. 5

I built this in order to satisfy a personal need, i.e. to find the cheapest place where to buy books from.

There are quite a few competitors out there already, but none of them quite lived up to what I wanted.

    Question for the audience: should such sites make it clear that an affiliate code is attached to all the Amazon links?

    I don’t begrudge anyone using such links but prefer to be told about it someplace on the site.

      I just assume that any site tying in with Amazon is doing it just to make money from referral links, though I would appreciate seeing it mentioned upfront.

      1. 1

        I assume the same as well. Of course, Amazon does require that the disclosure appear somewhere on the site:

        You must, however, clearly state the following on your site: “[Insert your name] is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to [insert the applicable site name (amazon.com, amazonsupply.com, or myhabit.com)].”
