    In my earlier post I talked about Amazon Affiliate program which is a good way to make money by selling product. Specially for gadget blogs Amazon gadget stuff works really good. Now, in this question I will deal with most common question asked by newbie Amazon affiliates: “How to create Amazon affiliate link”.

    Extending earlier tutorial here I’m sharing how you can create affiliate link to individual product on Amazon. By now, I assume you have signed up as an Amazon Affiliate, in case if you haven’t you can sign up from here. You will be earning money from Amazon affiliate online when some one follow your Amazon referral link and buys something. If you are not really comfertable with creating affiliate links for individual products, I would suggest you to install Amazon widgets.

    Or simply browse amazon site while logging into your amazon affiliate link. On every page at the top, you can find amazon Affiliate link generator which will let you grab amazon affiliate links instantly.

    Step by step guide to create Amazon affiliate link:

    Once you application is approved, login to your Amazon affiliate panel and click on Amazon links and banners and click on add product links now:

    On the next page you have two options. Search for product or add ASIN/ISBN Code of individual product. I prefer second one as it’s fast that ways. You can find more information about ASIN/ISBN codes here.

    How to Get ASIN code of Individual Product?

    Now first step is to find the product which is relevant to your website/blog. You can search for any product by going directly to Amazon.com homepage. Once you have find the product, go to product detail part. In this case I’m getting ASIN code of this product.

    Grab the Amazon Affiliate link for the product:

    So now we have ASIN code of the product. Go to add a product link page. (Refer Image 1). Add ASIN code of the product and click on go. Refer to following image:

    Add the codes into your blog at your desired place and if it’s a good and relevant product, you will end up making good money. Specially for gadget blogs, you can write a review of phone and add Amazon link to buy the phone.

    I saw your youtube video first that this post and that video was really great. Excellent. But I have a doubt. How Amazon pays?

    Reply

    Harsh Agrawal

    They send payments via Check, Direct Deposit and through Amazon certificate/gift card.

    I like using the affiliate link that has words only instead of the the one that has picture. I found out that it converts well.

    Paul I believe you must be using it on your blog post..I believe for sidebar one with picture would be more effective..What’s your thought?

    I’m wondering why you went through all of those steps when you have the Amazon Associates toolbar installed (saw it when I watched the YouTube video)? With the toolbar present when visiting Amazon.com (or the local variety, ie Amazon.ca for Canada), these are the steps to use:

    1. Search for the product on Amazon
    2. Click the product you want to sell.
    3. Click “Link to this page” (Top left on the toolbar)
    4. A Pop-Up will appear with the customization options for the ad
    5. Copy the URL in the text field at the bottom of the pop-up as in your video.

    Done!
