As a BigCommerce store owner using Amazon Associates, you may be wondering if you need a disclaimer or a disclosure informing users about your use of Amazon Associates or if you need other legal agreements as well.

Amazon does not require you to have a Privacy Policy. There is no mention of Terms & Conditions agreement requirement. What Amazon is really looking for is proper disclosure as outlined in Amazon Affiliate Operating Agreement

You must clearly state the following, or any substantially similar statement on your site:

As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

Our recommendation is to have the disclosure on every page. We like to be safe. You can easily do this by creating a new text widget in your sidebar or footer. Having said that, it may suffice to include the disclosure on a page located somewhere on your site - like the contact us page.

The Amazon Affiliate Operating Agreement states - 

'Except for this disclosure, you will not make any public communication with respect to this Agreement or your participation in the Associates Program. You will not misrepresent or embellish our relationship with you (including by expressing or implying that we support, sponsor, or endorse you), or express or imply any affiliation between us and you or any other person or entity except as expressly permitted by this Agreement.'
