    Even I forget at times to use the link but, if you can remember even sometimes, it would help. Thanks Grumpy

    I have buttons in both IE and Firefox for eBay and I copied the link into the web page box. Now it will be automatic. You can access that box by right clicking on the button and selecting "Properties" from the drop down menu.

    This assumes that the link you posted will do the same thing as clicking the button on AK's site. Is that correct?

    thanks for the support, those of you who use the affiliate program.

    If you first go to ebay using the affiliate link, then search out your items, when you win your item, ebay sends a small portion to AK. A cash 'thank you' from ebay to AK for the 'referral'.

    If everybody did all their ebay and other buying through the affiliate program, things might be very different here.

    For all the ebaying that the membership does, every time someone fails to use the affiliate link, AK misses out on free money. That money could contribute to the cost of high-powered dedicated servers, or forum software upgrades, better (read: more expensive) chat software, just to name a few, off the top of my head.

    Thinking further, perhaps more money for VOA, contests/giveaways, Grumpy could keep his records, instead of auctioning them off for AK...

    I'm sure there are other things that are not coming to mind, at the moment.

    You get my drift.

    That's what I was thinking Ernie and every time I see Dave's auctions. Some of use forget the cost involved and the effort put out, I'll try to remember.

    I want to do this. But I see no favorites on Mac Firefox nor any button on AK. I dont know how to do that on Firefox and cant edit my existing bookmarks.

    Will the link work for ebay Germany? If not how can I link my ebay.de account to assure the stipend is given to AK? Same question applies to Amazon. If I can make it work I'll be happy to do so.

    Cheers,
    James

    Me too, set mine up the other day. What about the Amazon link? Looks like the regular old Amazon link to me, are we sure that one's right?
