To receive any commission off Amazon, you will need an Affiliate tag – the Amazon tag is used to determine that it is your account that sent the customer to Amazon.
To create an Amazon tag, first of all, open your browser and navigate to the Amazon affiliate site for your locale. The best way to find this is to search Google for “Amazon Affiliate” followed by your country, then look for the page in the results, ensuring it is an official Amazon page (i.e. affiliate-program.amazon.co.uk).
Log into your account using the login section, the location of which may vary depending on which locale you are using.
Once you are logged in, clock Manage in the top left hand corner.
Now, click “Add Tracking ID” to add a new tracking ID.
On the next screen, you need to type the tracking ID you wish to add, then click search – this will verify that the tracking ID is available.
If the tracking ID is available, it will be confirmed on the next page – note that this will have been appended with a -20 (this varies depending on the locale, UK is -21)
Now, you need to add this tag to your store.
Log into your stores dashboard and click tools – change parameters.
Then select Tags, Keys & Code from the menu on the left.
Finally, add your Amazon tag into the “Amazon Tag” box and click Save.
