The Quentin Tarantino Archives finances itself solely through own funds and a constant flow of revenue stemming from Amazon referral fees. The way this works is, that when somebody clicks on one of our links to Amazon (those links contain our unique referral ID) and then buys something, tarantino.info earns a commission. In order to provide visitors with convenient shopping links and in order to continue the flow of funding, it is necessary to have all products featured in this wiki somehow linked to Amazon. The following link format should be used.
- What is an ASIN/ISBN?
- All products at Amazon, no matter if .com, .de or whatever, have a unique ASIN, in the case of books that is an ISBN. This code has to be pasted and inserted into our placeholder.
- How do the links look like?
- The following links work, if you replace the phrase PLACEHOLDER with the ASIN/ISBN. Please be careful where you link from/to, depending on if it is .com (USA), .ca (Canada), .fr (France), .de (Germany) or .co.uk (United Kindom)
THE LINKS ARE (replace PLACEHOLDER with ASIN/ISBN):
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/PLACEHOLDER/102-4288925-5607313?ie=UTF8&tag=thequentintar-20 http://www.amazon.ca/exec/obidos/redirect?tag=thequentint01-20&path=ASIN/PLACEHOLDER http://www.amazon.fr/o/ASIN/PLACEHOLDER/thequentint00-21 http://www.amazon.de/exec/obidos/redirect?path=ASIN/PLACEHOLDER&tag=thequentintar-21 http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/redirect?path=ASIN/PLACEHOLDER&tag=thequentint07-21
and for nl.bol.com (Netherlands), replace the code after bfid http://service.bfast.com/bfast/click?bfmid=1821541&siteid=41555451&bfpid=PLACEHOLDER&bfmtype=V&PrdId=1002004000118604
