Hi, 

I am planning to promote a video using adwords for video. The video speaks about different types of remedies for a particular problem. However, the last remedy is using a product. 

 

So, my question is, whether I can place an affiliate link within the description for the product?

Hi Richie,

 

Sure. You can use the recently launched "Youtube Cards".

 

These are of 5 types as of now; Merchandise, Fundraising, Video/Playlist, Website, Fan Funding.  

 

Merchandise card is what you can use to direct users to the product highlighted in the video.

 

PFB the link to the same:

Hope this helps. Smiley Happy

Hi there;
I assume you refer to "medicinal remedies.". I would recommend carefully reading the "health care and medicine" section of the Policy.

Hey Richie,

I have to agree with Moshe here.. Medicinal remedies are taken very seriously on Google. They have different policies for different countries.. please take care not to violate the policy.

With regards to the link you want to place.. I dont think that should be a problem.
