Running a forum is difficult these days so we all try to monetize it as much as possible after a period of time. I have been using normal ads on our forum and they are working out good but I want to know if we (our team) can use affiliate links on our forum (inside the posts) but restrict the members from doing the same? Is this a good community practice. Love to hear your thoughts.
There is an official affiliate plugin which you can utilise for generating Amazon affiliate income.
You can also restrict users from being able to post any link based on Trust Levels.
There is nothing wrong with what you are suggesting (in terms of being good or bad practice) but I can’t think of a way to limit members to just certain types of links (i.e. no affiliates).
