WARNING: While this technique of uploading an image from Amazon and using the text link will still work, Amazon's TOS says it is unacceptable and they will ban accounts using this technique.

So, you are limited to using the image link in the SiteStripe.

Don't get banned do it the way they recommend.

Sadly, unless you take your own image of a product this means that adblockers will block your image. You will want to provide a way for a text link to work if this happens.(When it happens)

____________________________________________________________________

Amazon won't work for everyone in the States. Certain States have implemented what is called a Nexus Law. In these States you can purchase Amazon products but Affiliates are excluded. I believe some of these States are Colorado, the Carolinas and Georgia. Things might have changed so check to see if you live in an excluded State when you sign-up for Amazon.

In this training I cover:

  • How to add an image to your post
  • How to align your image
  • Where to sign-up for Amazon
  • How to grab an image from Amazon
  • How to link an image to Amazon
  • How to insert an Amazon Image
  • What happens when you encounter an Ad-Blocker

Note: In this tutorial I place an Image and an Amazon Image on the same page to demostrate how to do each. You will want to use the Amazon Image. Amazon's changed TOS prohibits the use of an uploaded Amazon Image (you can still use an image from elsewhere if you desire).

I hope you enjoy this and that it answers the questions that you may have.

using the image+text link will not show when an ad blocker is in use.

What a great tutorial! This prompted me to go to my Amazon Associates page only to find out it was closed for not using it (I've had it since 2013). I ended up creating a new one and I hope to put it to good use...especially after all I've learned from you, Craig!

I also just activated SiteStripe. Huge time saver!

Hi @Labman,
Thank for the training for Amazon link.But i have another issue with Amazon:
When i try to create my amazon'affiliate associated account in order to have an ID and use it with my differents websites,which all have amazon's stores,while i reach the step of verification,it reject my phone's number,saying that: " amazon is prohibiting to call this number try other differents phone's numbers'' And when i try others phone's numbers ,i receive the same message.However the first phone number i used is the same i first used to create my primary simple costomer account.And my Country is not prohibiting from amazon.It's a big problem for me to move ahead ,i even write to their support two time but so far,no solution....Please i need a help from you if someone can know what to do,tells me how to proceed?

Thanks

Jean

Thanks Labman for the updated version. Much appreciated!

If you get the time, would you also be able to create any training in creating astores on a website? Some of the research I have done so far on astores is quite old and a new updated version would be greatly appreciated!
If not, don't worry about it...
Thanks in advance if possible,
Paul

I've never been a huge fan of AStores. They have a low conversion in general but 1 is more than none I guess.

Thanks, Labman. This is what I have been working on the last few days.

Is there any way to give someone a link with our Amazon Affiliate id and if they go thru that link, no matter where they go and purchase on Amazon, I could get the commission?

For example: A friend wants to order something from Beauty dept, and also from the Book Department.

I thought I read about an application that did such.

Amazon does that. You need to get them to Amazon using your link.
Once they are there, any sales made in the next 24 hours get commission (assuming they are not special items that are excluded) It is a short term cookie(24 hr) so they will need to get in the habit of using your link to arrive at Amazon if they are family or friends and want to give you regular commissions.
