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.

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. :)

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.

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

Hey Jeremy,

This is GREAT news ... Thank YOU!

Shuckers ... I just logged into Amazon but "Launching OneLink" states the following:
"Please link your store and get it validated before mapping individual tracking IDs"
so we need a store before we can use the individual tracking OneLink option, by the sound of this. Now I have to get going adding my store ... huh.

This is truly GREAT news for all Amazon affiliates!

Hi. You are most welcome! :)

If you are referring to Amazon astore, then no, you do not need an astore on your site.

When someone clicks your affiliate link, they are sent to what Amazon calls your storefront.

This is basically your affiliate ID, AKA - your store.

P.S. In case you haven't heard, Amazon will soon be retiring the astore.

Amazon One Link basically allows you to link international traffic to your US store (ID) to help monetize that traffic when they click on your affiliate link.

Hope that helps.

Amazon has already retired the Amazon store. That was shared in a brightly displayed alert when I logged in this afternoon.

If what you say is true then what is with the following prompt:
"Please link your store and get it validated before mapping individual tracking IDs"

Hi Trish.

The prompt is telling you that you must link and validate your CA and UK stores to your US store (ID's) before Amazon will give you the code to put on your site/sites to implement Amazon One Link.

After adding the code to your site, Amazon will then be able to redirect your CA and UK traffic to your proper store (ID) when an affiliate link is clicked.

Amazon will retire the aStore on 10/27/17.
Hope this helps.
Have a great day ~Jeremy
