Any Amazon Associate knows that Amazon creates HORRIBLE, long, non-standards compliant affiliate links for you to use on your sites.

I’ve stopped using PayPal altogether. Their fees are way too high, they freeze accounts over stupid stuff and they’re generally unresponsive and crap. Replaced them with Dwolla over a year ago to receive payments from clients, and haven’t looked back. Simple, 0-25c transactions.
