De-linking your website provides the benefit of no longer have to offer Amazon Payments and Amazon’s TOS no longer applies to the website..  The trade off is that you no longer have access to Amazon product information.  There are 3 areas of information.

1)      For general product information this is not a big deal… most inventory programs provide basic product information and WOBBookSite websites will fill in missing product information by the end of 2010.

2)      Lack of images is typically the biggest issue.  The website supports a link to images, images uploaded to the website, and OpenLibrary.org images.  You can use any combination of these methods.

3)      The last piece of Amazon you will lose is reviews.

It is very easy to de-link your website from Amazon.  Under shopping cart settings is a check box to de-link.

After delinking you most likely will want to go to ‘General Settings’ | ‘Default Image Display Settings’ and turn on OpenLibrary.org

You can move back and forth between linking to Amazon and not linking to Amazon has much as you wish.

WARNING… for website owners that have me pull inventory directly off of Amazon… de-linking is not possible because Amazon does not provide enough product information.
