Amazon has introduced a new feature to help US associates monetize traffic coming to their sites from the UK and Canada.

One Link allows you to link your US store ID to your UK and CA store ID's.

This allows Amazon to redirect visitors who click your affiliate links to products available to them, creating a better shopping experience for visitors.

***Important Update!***

When you update or change themes, you will need to re - enter your Amazon One Link code.

Hi Jeremy, I followed all the onelink training and got it all set up but when I went on to my site and go to the very bottom you can see the coding and it doesn't look very good, are you meant to see it or have I done something wrong. xx

You should not see the coding Cheryl. Did you fill out at Amazon what your link would say? EX: my 10 best motivational books. and then the link turns into that. If I am on the wrong page I am sure Jeremy will jump in.

Hi.
No, you should definitely not see the code anywhere on your site.
I'm heading to your profile now to find your site and check it out.

OK. So I can't for the life of me figure out how you got the code to show up like that. It almost looks like an arbitrary footer text widget that wasn't entered in text mode.

Are you certain you entered the One Link code in the editor ->Theme Footer -> One line after the closing body tag?

Hi MsMerry!
This is an odd one. I hope we can get it figured out!

You are making me wonder now Jeremy. Will go and check it now. xx

Yes, it is Jeremy. Like when I first tried and nothing would work. And it was just one little-missed step for me, so hoping it is for Cheryl too.

Jeremy, most helpful, thank you ever so much!
But, I have one question for you. In the past Amazon had a plugin which redirected visitors to the Amazon site of their country to a same or similar item. The problem was if they went ahead making a purchase, you wouldn't get commission.
Do you get commission for sales in countries you are 'one linked' to?

Thank you
Giulia

Yes.
This is supposed to be Amazon's "reward" to it's associates after decimating the percentages it paid to the army that literally built them into what they are.

Hi Jeremy. I finally found a time to deal with this. So I added one code to one site where I have Footer, but I did not have anything through phone. I only added UK so far. But I see that it is Verified. Is this phone thing only for Canada? My account with Canada was
canceled some time ago so have to apply again.

That was such great training - thank you! I've now got it all set up.

One question - does it work both ways? For example, if I put a UK link in will it redirect to the US site if a reader is in the US? Or should I always use the US link and it will redirect?

Awesome Louise!

This is a great question.
I would have to assume that it would work either way since we have the one link code on our sites, but my feeling is to use the US link until I get a definitive answer from Amazon.

I will try to email them tomorrow for clarification.
Have a great day/night. :)

Thanks Jeremy :)

So, the reply I got was very vague and didn't really address the question.

I will resubmit the question and see what we get from the next associate.

My advice is to continue using your US associate links.

Thanks for asking the question! I'll carry on doing that for now :)

Hi Jeremy, thankyou fo the training but I have come unstuck on the part where I go into appearance to 'themed footer'. I do not have this option on mine just the option of 'footer' and when I go into that it doesn't have a closing body tag so where should I put my amazon tag? Thanks

Hi Stefanie.
While I'm not a code expert by any means, I believe that any properly formatted html file should have a closing </body> tag before the closing html </html> tag.

Can you add a screen shot of the end of your theme footer code here?

Hi Jeremy,
thanks for getting back to me, I'm on holiday at the moment and have bad wifi but I do believe I may have sorted it now anyway as I watched a tutorial on youtube which went about it a different way (i'm presuming there are different ways to do it).
Anyway when I get home I am going to find out wether I have done it properly and I will get back to you if I need more help.
Thanks again
