A few days ago, we added product links to Amazon against certain listings. I have always wanted to assign a prize value to competitions - provide more up-front information about the prize, helping you decide whether a competition is worthy of your valuable time. If the price is right, you might decide to purchase anyway!
With Amazon's database we will have access to images, descriptions, prices, ratings of the prizes on offer - allowing us to provide a monetary value, creating a 'high value' category, etc.
This is a temporary measure in its current form - to gain access to their API and implement a more discrete integration we need to pass (hopefully!) verification.
All links pointing to Amazon.co.uk are affiliate links and will generate a small commission for completed orders, helping to keeping Competitions Time running. As such, “As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.”
