Amazon Associates Link Builder

The official plugin from the Amazon Associates Program.

Where can I find more information on the Amazon Associates Program?

You can find more information on the Amazon Associates Program at Amazon Associates Help.

How does the plugin work?

The plugin makes real-time calls to the Amazon Product Advertising API to search for, and look up information on, items in Amazon.com's product catalog. Security credentials provided in the Settings console are used for signing API requests. The plugin also contains an in-build caching mechanism to cache the API results for optimizing the API usage and reducing the loading time of the link content.

Can I track the performance of the ad units created using the plugin?

Yes. You can track the performance of the ad unit by placement or section of your website by using tracking ids. You are recommended to use different tracking ids for different ad templates. This will allow you to track orders and earnings information for each type of ad using the reports section in Associates Central. You can create tracking ids here.

What information is shared with Amazon?

Information we learn from Amazon Associates Link Builder users helps us to evaluate performance of the plugin, troubleshoot technical issues, and generally improve the plugin. We only capture information on impressions, clicks, and sales for Amazon affiliate links in accordance with the Amazon.com Privacy Notice.

Where can I find support?

You can review the About section under the Associates Link Builder menu bar or Link Builder User Guide for more information on getting started and key features of the plugin. If you get stuck, or have any questions, you can ask for help in the Amazon Associates Link Builder Plugin Forum.

How can I add links to different Amazon sites in my blog?

You can search products using keywords in any supported country, but you have to join the Associates Program in those countries separately to be able to do this. For example - If you are a blogger in UK interested in linking to Amazon.com (US) site, then you will first need to join the Amazon Associates Program in US to be able to search for products on Amazon.com site.
