Help Topic: Adding Amazon Links

You can create a Society-friendly link to any item on Amazon once you know its 10-digit ASIN/ISBN number, listed on every Amazon product page. If you enter Amazon.com through one of these links and then (within that session) make a purchase, that purchase will add a contribution to the Society at no cost to you. This happens even if you buy something other than what was linked to.

For example, if you look on the Amazon page for the Alain Ducasse pastry book, and you scroll down to "Product Details," it says:

* Hardcover: 584 pages
* Publisher: "Stewart, Tabori and Chang" (October 1, 2006)
* Language: English
* ISBN-10: 2848440163
* ISBN-13: 978-2848440163
* Product Dimensions: 12 x 9.5 x 2 inches
* Shipping Weight: 7.4 pounds

The ISBN-10 number is what you want (for books it's the ISBN-10, for non-book products it's called the ASIN). You build the link like so:


So for the Ducasse pastry book, you put the 2848440163 in where it says "ISBNorASIN" in the above code example, and it looks like this:

[amazon=2848440163]Ducasse's excellent book[/amazon]

Which looks like this in your post: Ducasse's excellent book
