Amazon Link Manager Feature

Scenario

I live in Canada and the first Amazon affiliate program I signed up for was the one for my country, Canada eh!

As I grew my website and created more websites with Amazon links I needed to expand my Amazon affiliate program to other countries, mainly that of the United States of America and the United Kingdom.

I was losing out on Amazon affiliate commissions big time when someone from the UK clicked on my Canadian Amazon link.

My UK website reader would be redirected to the Amazon UK site and I would lose out on a commission because my Canadian affiliate link did not register with the UK Amazon account…bullocks!

Possible Solutions

Would I need to add 3+ Amazon links for each item to indicate which link to click on for your country of residence?

The thought of going through all my posts, pages and widgets to add each country’s specific links would be a nightmare.

With a little research, I stumbled upon “Amazon Link Engine” by GeniusLink.

I found the Amazon Link Engine plugin within the WordPress Plugin Dashboard.

Another advantage of GeniusLinks plugin is that it not only redirects to a specific product ID as each country may have a different product ID for the same item. The Amazon Link Engine

About the Author Paul

My online journey started in 2008 when I was tired of working for somebody else. I searched the internet for years trying to find out how to make a living from home with an online business. In 2015 I finally found the information and support from a website just like this one

    You know, Paul, I never thought about globalizing my Amazon affiliate links. I don’t have a lot since I am primarily promoting digital products, but I do have a few. It looks like this could be very useful for me.

    I do have a question. I am only signed up in the United States Amazon affiliate program. Do I need to sign up for each country, or is it automatic?

    • Paul says:

      Yes, you would need to sign up to each country individually as each country and regions even have specific rules about their affiliate programs and claiming income. Once you have signed up then you will only need to add that information to the Amazon Link Engine Management plugin and it will ensure your client is directed to the appropriate country and a similar product if the same product ID is not available in their region.

      Cheers

    This is fantastic information. I didn’t even consider that this would be required. This information is invaluable for anyone starting out as an Amazon Affiliate.

    Thank you for providing this information. I’ll be sure to implimenting it as soon as I get my affiliate account setup.

    One question though. I sell phones. I plan on promoting specific cases for specific devices. Does it change the product in a different country? That would be an issue.

    • Paul says:

      The issue is that a product, lets say in Canada, will have a specific product ID number associated to it but the ID number for the same product in the UK will be different. The Amazon Link Engine Manager will ensure to send your customer to the appropriate product with the correct product ID for their country.

      Now that said there may times when your product is not even available in that customers country so the Amazon Link Manager will provide related products. Which may still provide you with a sale and commission.

      Cheers

    This new pricing model also gives all of our clients access to the same set of powerful tools that our larger clients get to use without having to pay a price that is out of line with the number of clicks they’re using. This new model truly grows and scales with our clients no matter what level they are joining us at.
