Amazon Store

Post by NativTxn » Mon Sep 12, 2011 9:49 am

I had a thought...how about setting up an Amazon Store for OCNA? I know I've seen different places that have a specific LINK to use. Anytime someone places an order at Amazon using that link, the organization gets a little bit of the proceeds. I'm not sure how this is set up, but Podcacher used to have one of these links until California changed their laws where it's not allowed anymore. You can place several recommended items, but people can order ANYTHING and still support the organization.

Since inception of the site, across the top of each page is the word "SHOP". It goes to the OCUS Amazon store. There has yet to be a single sale.

But isn't there a link we can use where we can purchase ANYTHING from Amazon and have the proceeds go to OCNA? I used to have a link to the Podcacher store (which just took me to a regular Amazon page, but with their ID on it) and I just used that as a button on my toolbar. Anytime I did anything on Amazon, it automatically helped them out. I order lots of things for work and many of those items don't fit the categories listed on the Store page.

We also need more items added to the Store page. Business card size laminating pouches (great for BIT caches), more bison tubes, waterproof containers, UV lights. Travel Bugs can't be used in OCNA caches, so I'm not sure why they are included.

CP will need to create a new store as this one is linked to my personal account which also is my RVRoadTrip store. Now that store rakes it in... :)
