Linking Generic Pics to Amazon with Your Affiliate ID Attached!

Last Update: April 12, 2016

Okay, folks: here's the skinny on linking a pic on your website to Amazon with your affiliate ID attached - no matter what they purchase you should get the credit because of "cookies". At least this is my understanding. If I'm wrong, please correct me. :)

You can link directly to the Amazon.com homepage OR an item's detail page. Your visitors simply have to visit URLs with the correct Associate IDs inserted. You should use the following format examples to construct your links:

Amazon.com Homepage: http://www.amazon.com/?tag=your_Associates_ID(you must change "your_Associates_ID to match your unique Associates ID or tracking ID)

Detail Page: http://www.amazon.com/dp/ASIN/?tag=your_Associates...

For the detail page link, be sure to replace “ASIN” with the product ASIN or ISBN found on the item’s detail page.

If you're html savvy, you can take a pic, put some lettering on it, and head it up with the Amazon Affiliate Disclaimer statement, as well.

Be Blessed with Success ~ Gail
