How To Build Amazon Affiliate Links
We often get inquiries from new Associates about the creation of Affiliate Links (sometimes also called Associate Links). In this article, we’ll show you a number of ways to quickly and easily create Affiliate Links – and how you can earn advertising fees by placing these Affiliate Links on your website.
1. Product Links
Within Associates Central, under the Product Linking tab, you can create a link to a specific page from Amazon. This link can be inserted in the text editor of your website. To create a Product Link, you enter either a search term or the Amazon Standard Identification Number (ASIN) of the product into the search field.

Click on ‘Go‘, and you will see a result; then click on ‘Get link’ for more options. Now, you can individualize the link in the next step. Under the option ‘Text and Image’, the link shows a small product box with a product picture and a call-to-action button in your front end. You also have the possibility to choose a text link, by clicking on ‘Text only’, or ‘Only image’ for a linked image.

2. SiteStripe

Easier than creating the link via Associate Central is to use our SiteStripe tool. SiteStripe – which is used often, by many Associates – is a toolbar, which is displayed to you as soon as you visit the shop page as a participant of the Amazon Associates program. You can then quickly and easily create HTML code, which you simply paste onto your website.

You have the option to select code for text links, links with product images or links with image and text. With SiteStripe, you can create your Affiliate Links directly on the shop page and share them on Facebook or Twitter without having to visit Associate Central.

Build Text Link

On any shop page, you can use SiteStripe to create an automatically tagged link for a text link. Just click the ‘Text’ icon, and your Tracking ID is automatically integrated into the link. If you have multiple tracking IDs, you can make a selection using a drop-down menu. You can also use the text-link overview to determine whether you want to use the complete-partner link or to use a short link.

The options for creating a text link vary depending on whether you’re on an overview page, or a product page from For a text link to a product, you must already be on the corresponding product page. The created link can then be placed directly in the text editor of your website.

Similarly, you can build image link or text and image link even you can directly share on social websites.

3. Widgets

Inside Associate Central, you can create and customize various ‘widget’ links by clicking on ‘Widgets’. So, for example, you can use ‘Your Picks’ to present your favorite products on your website, or you can use the ‘Search’ Widget, which enables your visitors to search for products on directly – place the link in the text editor of your website and you’ll have added this functionality to your website. 

As an Amazon Associate, you can earn advertising fees for all qualified orders. Just click on the Widget of your choice and personalize it. Depending on which Widget you want to use, you’ll find various options for individual personalization.
