Text Links

Copy any of the URLs below and enter your Associate Store ID into the section of the URL labeled "Insert_Store_ID". For example, if your Store ID is "mywebsite-20", then an Associate referral link to the Amazon Local homepage is http://local.amazon.com/?tag=mywebsite-20

Deals sell on a first-come, first-serve basis on Amazon Local. If you choose to link to an individual deal, there is a chance that it will sell out. This will not impact the tracking status of this user so if they go on to buy a different deal, you would still earn any applicable advertising fees.


Deal Feed
A deal feed will help you programmatically pull in content across full range of categories which include restaurants, travel, beauty, entertainment, and much more. The feed, which updates content hourly, is provided in JSON format and will enable you to display relevant text and imagery while presenting price and saving messages. It can also be parsed by the set of categories and geographies to enable you to display relevant content to your customers. You control what to show from our deal feed.
