Could Amazon referral links be added to the site for easier reference?

Hey all, hopefully the digital market forum is the correct spot for this suggestion. I recall Paul having an Amazon link that provides him a bonus without changing the price to the buyer, but I can't find it when I'm looking. Maybe I'm just not seeing it, but perhaps some "sticky" post which includes a list of such links if there are others who have them, and then folks could click a referral link to reach Amazon or other sites with similar offers, to do our normal shopping? Amazon does offer https://smile.amazon.com where you can choose a charity and 5% of certain sales goes to that charity, but if we can support permaculture folks directly that would also be great.

I meant to mention that clicking an existing link [from a post] then searching for what you want will give credit.

Most links can been found in the book review or gear review grids.

Left to themselves, external links can go bad, sometimes quickly. This can be disappointing if the poster counted on the additional info from those link to help people understand something. I see this all the time in technical forums where people link to pictures, diagrams and supporting explanations.
