Link to Amazon wishlist or similar, acceptable?

A guy contacted me a while back and wanted to compensate me for helping him with a question here in the forums. I never heard back from him, but I said I would create an Amazon wishlist and link to it from my profile. Only now do I realize that this is something the forum owners might have an issue with. Would it be okay to put something like that in my profile? (Would it, even, be possible to add a separate field so that I don't have to put that as my home page link?)

My initial reaction to this is somewhat negative, but I think that we need to discuss this in the Moderator's forum and get back to you. Since you only seem to want to put it in your profile and possibly mention it in PM's, it might be ok.
