The observant amongst us will notice that there is a new button in the forum navigation bar - upon clicking, this will open a new page taking you to the main HML website, specifically to the HML Bookstore.

There will be in time a new page added to the main site for the Marketplace also with a direct link button. Well as soon as I work out how I want to add vendors and advertisers and what I want to charge. Anyone with experience of this is welcome to contact me via PM with their advice.

That's ok my lovely, its mainly down to me being disorganised and then not having a laptop to do the work on for a while. Today I felt the spurt of creativity and finally sorted it all out.

Super - good work there Badger. Some more baby related purchases should be going through amazon.co.uk any time now too!

How does this work if you want to buy many books all at once? Do I need to go back to the forum's search thingy and buy each item separately or is homemade life benefited for every book I add to my purchase after having searched for just the first one through the forum shop?

Holiday reading is being prepared for! And birthday presents while I'm at it..

oh - good question.

Honestly, I have no idea how multiples would work - really, just do what is easiest for you.

ok, is really straightforward - you just do a search on the forum shop for the first item on your list, click 'buy', it pops up a new amazon window, you add the item to your basket and close that window and then repeat this process for your second, third... items. Each time you get a new amazon window it has saved the item(s) in your basket from previous searches, so no need to make lots of separate orders. Job done!

The way I understand it work (from my own experiences) is that as long as you first enter amazon from Badger's site then anything you buy whilst there will contribute. So you don't need to keep going back to the HML site.

Badger - the way to test that should be that you should have three things listed that I bought the other day - a steriliser, a mirror and a pushchair bag clip thing. If all there are there then you don't need to go back and search for each one separately from the HML site.

Hope this helps.

I don't see who has bought, only what and the commission fee allocated to the HML account

I should have mentioned this before - the Amazon reports I get are like the forum stats I get from Google Analytics, incredibly detailed, but completely anonymous - I see no information that can be identified to any on person or group..

Whew that's good - now you'll never find out about my book addiction (whoops...)

Super Badger - glad it's all there. I've discovered that amazon are regularly the cheapest place for lots of baby related stuff so I'll try and remember to go via HML next time I'm shopping!
