Is it still allowed to post affiliate links to own amazon merch t-shirts?

As of this, its no problem, right?

https://forums.developer.amazon.com/questions/41657/are-we-allowed-to-use-amazon-affiliate-links-to-pr.html

Is this still in effect? If so, do I already have access to an affiliate link generator by being participant of the Amazon Merch program? If I dont, can someone give me a brief explanation and link to start creating own affiliate links?

Thanks a lot, any reply appreciated :)

And does anyone know if these would count towards backlinks (for SEO)?

Yes you can, and I'm sure they count so long as you are posting on a site with reputation, and not spamming them or using no-follow.

If that is the case, then I would like to add a follow up question. I can see where 3 of my merch t-shirts were ordered through an affiliate link which is used only to sell tshirts. However, none of the 3 shirts ordered earned anything from it. At the same time that I can see that another product was purchased and I did earn something from it. Can you give me an insight into what is going on here?

I'm testing this and the referral link doesnt work - This should like to a tshirt design but goes to a missing page instead- https://amzn.to/2IVRzki

Try using a referral link to your brand page instead, that works ATM
