    People do this, but its probably not the best approach to do. I think you would be better off paraphrasing the sales copy of the merchant. Most merchants don't care if you use an ebook cover from their website, but they might mind if you copy other images. If you are looking for low cost images, check out istockphoto.com

    You can take your own photos of the products and use them

    Ask the merchant if you can copy the photos to help promote their products. I've done that and have always received permission since I would be sending them traffic.

    It's better if you write the sales copy in your own words rather than copy and paste their words.

    Hey all,

    That's all good advice and I agree with it. I especially liked the advice that Angie gave about asking the merchant. It does work.

    In fact, I was actually able to get the merchant to send me a series of pictures that he thought would work best. He sent them to me in a zip file. I thought that was pretty cool and I was pleased with myself for having the insight and courage to ask [​IMG]

    It's okay and often effective to communicate your needs [​IMG]

    It's also a good idea to ask questions on this forum rather than stumbling in the dark on your own.

    That is what I do..ask the merchant.
    Most of the time, I receive a prompt response.
