I would advise not to use the Amazon Plugins. I spent some time on the phone with Amazon and not all items linked to my affilite id. I removed the plugins. THEY ARE NOT NEEDED! When you do, you will not need any special codes or be asked to pay any fees. Let me know if you still need help!

Hey Donna,

In your affiliate dashboard menu area (on the left) scroll down until you see the menu item "Product Advertising API". Click on that.

On the main screen scroll down until you see a link for "Manage Your Account" and click on that. There will be a link for "AWS Security Credentials Console". Click on that.

There you will see an option for
Access Keys (Access Key ID and Secret Access Key)

Best Regards,
Jim

Amazon does charges for certain aspects of using their API and for cloud usage but there are no ongoing fees. You may want to inquire with the plug in creator as to what the plug in needs the id for. I have had plug ins that have used the id but I never got charged for it.
