If you are doing Amazon Affiliate Marketing, you need to know what is Amazon one link and use it so you can earn from the clicks of your site visitors from different countries. It's FREE! Learn more about it from this post.
What Is Amazon One Link?
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.
How Does Amazon One Link Work?
If your website 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.
Check 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 has in their list.
How To Set Up The Amazon Onelink?
1. Login To Your Amazon Associates Account.
2. Go To Tools > One Link
3. Click on “Click here to link” link.
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. 🙂
Update: This is a screenshot of Amazon Associate’s email dated March 23, 2020:
From what the email said, they updated the Amazon One Link 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.
If you would like to supercharge your Amazon Associates income and have an access to Amazon API (i.e. you need to be accepted to Amazon Associates Program first before you can access their PA-API), I highly suggest that you install the ASA2 Plugin.
I have been using the ASA2 plugin to generate more than 50% of my Amazon income since 2018. Without the ASA2 plugin, I would probably NOT earn from Amazon as much.
