Do you want to monitor the success of your various links to Amazon.co.uk quickly and simply? Then take advantage of a great feature for Amazon.co.uk Associates and create tracking IDs for your campaigns and aStores.
With tracking IDs you can analyse the performance of various websites, link placements or advertising strategies and at the same time accumulate referral fees under a single Associate ID. Any tracking ID created in your Associate account will be assigned to your Associate ID.
An Amazon.co.uk Associate with the Associate ID “your-assoc-id-21” can analyse two different aStores by creating additional tracking IDs using “your-assoc-id1-21” and “your-assoc-id2-21” and can analyse the performance of individual title links that contain this tracking ID using “your-assoc-id3-21”. All tracking IDs generate referral fees for the Associate account “your-assoc-id-21”.
As an Amazon.co.uk Associate you can display the clicks, orders or referral fees for all tracking IDs together in the Associate Central reports or filter the reports according to individual tracking IDs. The tracking ID summary report is particularly useful as it displays the results for all tracking IDs in the form of a summary.
