when people are paying willing to pay hundreds of dollars for a link from a single page its fairly obvious that the direct traffic it generates is irrlevant.
It's not at all "obvious".
A single link from a well chosen single page can indeed be placed for the direct traffic it generates.
Even for modest cost items a link like that might be justifiable
