After that click on the “become an affiliate” and make sure that you follow all the steps when filling up your credentials. The Amazon Affiliate program, or Amazon Associates, is an affiliate marketing program. It’s free for website owners and bloggers. Amazon Associates is an affiliate marketing program. This means that you can get paid money in exchange for promoting the products and services.

The Amazon Associates Affiliate Program is an affiliate program that’s free for creators to use and it is essentially a referral program that pays a commission to referring websites.

The commission rate differs depending on the product category. For instance, if you run an automotive blog, you can earn 4.50% from each sale. If you sell three car parts at $1,000 each in one day, you’d make $135 from those three transactions. If you sell the same product 30 times per month, you’d make $1,350 every month.

In the beginning of your Amazon Associate journey, the numbers can skew on the low side, so be sure to have another form of income in addition to being an Amazon Associate.

Before signing up on the platform, it’s important to review the Amazon Affiliate program’s commission rate per product category. That way, you can calculate how much you can potentially earn depending on your website’s niche.

To become an Amazon Associate, you must have an active website, blog, app, or YouTube channel. It’s also helpful if you’ve pre-populated that site with content, so it appears active and authentic to both users and Amazon.

Remember, you must be able to describe the purpose of your website as part of the application process. So, have a firm idea of why you’re creating your site, the audience you’ll target, and how you’ll bring in traffic.

  3. Add the ASIN of the product OR search Amazon for the product in the bar they provide.

  6. Alternatively, you can use the Amazon Associates SiteStripe to generate Amazon Affiliate links directly from the product page.
  7. Use the generated link on your site or other promotional materials according to Amazon’s standards.

1. Log in to your Amazon Associate account.

Doing this ensures that the link text is generated in a way that associates the product you’re promoting with your account.

This will take you to a page that will prompt you to create your link.

3. Add the ASIN of the product OR search Amazon for the product.

An Amazon Standard Identification Number (ASIN) is a 10-character alphanumeric code assigned to a product by Amazon for identification within their product catalog. You can find the ASIN of a product within the Product Information section of the product’s Amazon listing. That means you’ll have to grab it within another window.

Alternatively, if you can’t find the ASIN, Amazon will allow you to search the catalog for the product you’re promoting.

4. Click the Go button.

This will generate a result at the bottom. Be sure to verify that this is the intended product you wanted to promote.

This will copy your new Amazon Affiliate link to your clipboard, and you can now use that link in your promotions.

A simpler way to generate your Amazon Affiliate Links is by using the SiteStripe bar that shows up on product pages when you’re logged in to your Amazon Affiliate Panel.

Just click the Text button in the Get Link selector. Then copy the generated link that is provided in the popup.

Just remember that Amazon’s guidelines prohibit the use of the link in offline promotions, email, and eBooks or PDFs. As with most marketing and sales, quality content is at the heart of success. Ensure you’re attracting your audience with quality content and share relevant affiliate links with them on your site or YouTube channel.

Each link you generate will have a cookie that will then follow your website visitors after they click on the link. This is highly beneficial to you, because it increases the likelihood of you receiving commission for the sale. The only problem is that it only lasts for a limited amount of time.

The Amazon Affiliate cookie lasts for 24 hours after a website visitor clicks on the affiliate link. The cookie stays in their browser for that entire length of time. That way, if they check out at any time in those 24 hours, the purchase will be credited to you.

The Amazon Affiliate cookie is just one of the ways that the Amazon Affiliate program can help you make money. But first, you must get visitors to click on the link — and to do that, you need visitors in the first place.
