You want to earn internationally through Canada + EU5 Countries (United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, France & Italy) marketplaces and/or any of the 7 marketplaces (Japan, Singapore, Netherlands, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Poland, Sweden & Australia) as well - Click here for more information.
We have simplified the process for you to earn across the Canada, United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, France and Italy Associates programs, by making it possible using a single store ID. However for the rest of the countries, you will need an Amazon Associates account in each country for which you want to monetize the traffic.
Getting started is easy and requires a one-time setup. Click here to get started with setup.
Integration and preferences
We offer three controls to you for OneLink – “Exact match”, “Close match” and “Do not redirect”. Once you enable OneLink, we will automatically set your redirection preferences to “close match”. This means, when we find an exact or similar product or offering (e.g. Prime sign up) we will redirect international shoppers to that ASIN’s detail page on the local Amazon website, and if we can’t find an exact or similar match product or offering we will redirect the customer to the search experience on the local Amazon website using the product title as the search keyword. You can choose to update your redirection preference to “exact match” in which case we will only redirect international shoppers to an Amazon product detail page when the same product also exists locally, otherwise we will redirect to the search experience using the product title of a similar product. If we are unable to find a similar product or if you choose to update “Do not redirect”, we will not redirect clicks and rather take your visitor to the Amazon website that your original product linked to. Please note, all preferences are at a tracking ID level, so if you have multiple tracking IDs you will need to change these preferences for each one. We recommend you always leave the default option of “close match” to optimize conversions.
The “Check Matching Products” section on the OneLink page allows you to check where your international visitors will be redirected, for a given US product link.
Yes, your international visitors from countries neighboring the supported countries will be redirected to their nearest Amazon store. For example, visitors from Ireland , Greece, Georgia, and Iceland, etc., will be redirected to Amazon.co.uk.
Yes, as long as you have completed the one-time setup and use Amazon full links or Amazon short links on your site. Shortened links created by third-party link shorteners are currently not supported and will not be redirected.
A store is not available for OneLink once it has been closed in a specific country, as closing a store is an irreversible action.
Reporting and Payment
Your redirected earnings will be calculated based on the standard commission income table applicable for each Associate Program. For example, if a shopper based in the UK clicks on a website containing a US Amazon affiliate link, and places an order on the UK Amazon website after being redirected, the associate will receive the commission rate based on the UK Associates program.
Please note that your earnings will need to qualify for the minimum earnings threshold in each of the country’s program to be paid out.
You will have the choice to centralize accruals to one bank account of your choice or individual bank accounts in each of the countries.
Troubleshooting common issues
Historical reporting is no longer accessible once a store is closed. You will need to retrieve all reporting you require, prior to closing a store in a country.
