This is a screenshot of Amazon Associate’s email dated March 23, 2020:
From what the email said, they updated the OneLink to work as a standalone tool. You need not install the oneTag anymore. So, if you have oneTag installed in your site, you need to remove it before April 17, 2020.
OneLink will continue to work without the oneTag.
This lesson is straight-forward. Using the Amazon OneLink, I’ll teach you how to take advantage of the clicks from your site visitors from different countries.
Use your Google Analytics account.
In the left side, go to Geo>Location and see the top three countries your visitors are originating from.
From the above screenshot, I’d know that I need an Amazon US, Canada and UK associates account. Apply for free here.
It is always good to know if you have visitors coming from the countries. Otherwise, you can skip this lesson first, carry on creating contents until there is a good amount of visitors coming from different countries.
If you see visitors coming from Japan, get a Japan Associates Account. Apply the same move as you see visits from other countries such as France, Spain, Italy, and all other countries that Amazon Associates program will include to their list.
how does onelink work?
If your visitor is from the Canada or UK for example, and you only have an Amazon US affiliate account, you might lose a commission should that visitor end up buying stuff from Amazon Canada or Amazon UK.
If you have an Amazon Canada or UK associates accounts, you can have access to your affiliate links for the mentioned countries.
If you do not have an Amazon Associates account of the country that you want to link, apply first to get your tracking ID.
4. Go to "Select Geography," input your Store ID (or tracking ID) then click on the "Link Store."
5. Verify your store. Once verified, it should look like this:
That’s it! You can start earning commissions from visitors coming from the linked countries. 🙂
