I completely agree.  She did have to give up cheerleading for my cousins' football games after she broke her hip, though.  :(

Hey all - just joined the forum.

I live in Northern Ireland but have started to listen to the show and enjoy it immensely.

I would do a lot of business both through AMAZON and PLAY.com.

MY question is this - I tried to order some books via the amazon/ FTL addy using the amazon.co.uk address and it didn't work. Instead, therfore, I went to the amazon/ FTL addy and chose to be re-directed to amazon.co.uk to process my order.

I'm just wondering if this got FTL the commission?

If not, it may be useful to extend the Amazon/ FTL addy to include amazon.co.uk

Also, might be usefult to contact play.com - they're a VERY popular uk site that is similar to Amazon.

You're saying you went to http://amazon.freetalklive.com and did not get redirected to the uk site?

I initially tried amazon.freetalklive.co.uk and it didn't work. I then tried the amazon.freetalklive.com and, of course, it worked - but it would cost me more in shipping to order directly from the US Amazon.

Sometimes, in the past, to get the book/ cd/ whatever I required (which was not available via UK amazon), I would have had to order via US amazon and pay the extra shipping.

In this case, I was able to *choose* to be redirected from amazon.freetalklive.com to amazon.co.uk (where my desired items *were* availble) to have my order processed - however, I don't think it would have happened automatically.

I just want to be sure - as I do a lot of business with amazon.co.uk and would like to support the show via such - if you are definitely receiving the commission from my recent purchase in the aforementioned way.

Also - as some of my purchases were via amazon marketplace - do you still get the commission from such?

Virtually anything you buy through Amazon, regardless of who the third party seller is, will net us a commission. 

http://amazon.freetalklive.com should redirect you to your country's Amazon.  If the redirect is not working, you may use these:

United Kingdom - http://amazonUK.freetalklive.com
Canada - http://amazonCA.freetalklive.com
Germany - http://amazonDE.freetalklive.com
United States - http://amazonUS.freetalklive.com

I've updated the original post with this info.

Ian, could you possibly create a foxfire search engine bar for amazon with your affiliate information included?  I'm not sure that it is possible, but if it is, I will damn sure use it, and I spend like 7K a year through amazon. In the meantime I will try and remember to use the ftl link.

A suggestion for the amazon redirect:
A while ago you had a page with flag images that we could click to get to the country we wanted to order from, and then you replaced that with the automatic redirects based on the country of the user.

Rather than redirect people not from the countries currently supported to the American Amazon, couldn't you send us to the flag page so we could chose for ourselves?  My guess is that most listeners who don't belong to one of those countries live in Europe, and would prefer to buy from the UK or Germany, but don't know about the direct links.

Can you do that?  Torgo originally set that up, and he's a hard man to get a hold of.

There's an understatement.   :shock:
