  • I suspect the associate tag and tracking id are interchangeable. I noticed the documentation is mixed and unclear on this. I am not an expert though and have not go this plugin to display anything although it accepts my parameters/settings.

    AssociateTag is an alphanumeric token that uniquely identifies an Associate. This token is the means by which Amazon identifies the Associate to credit for a sale. Associate ID, Tracking ID and Associate Tag are indeed interchangeable.

    Follow these steps for setting up Associate ID:
    1. As an administrator, go to Associates Link Builder > Settings.
    2. Add your tracking ids in the Associate ID list and select your default Associate ID. You can add one store id or tracking id per row. You are recommended to create a new tracking ID in your Amazon Associates account for using it as Associate ID in the plugin.

    At the time of adding a shortcode, make sure to select an appropriate Associate ID. Verify that the selected associate id is correctly added as store='<selected-Associate-ID’ in the amazon_link shortcode.
