Have you ever wanted to be able to track your Amazon Associate program’s performance with channels (like you can with AdSense and Chitika)?
I’ve heard a number of publishers complaining about this and even a few saying that they have multiple Amazon Associate accounts for this purpose.
It seems that Amazon actually do have the capability to allow for this type of tracking without having to have multiple accounts (which incidentally isn’t a great idea as it decreases the numbers of sales credited to your account which in term means your % earnings goes down under the tiered system).
1. Your main Associates ID.
2. “I would like to receive XXX Associates tracking id’s to track multiple campaigns I am planning to run.”
That’s it. XXX can be any number up to 1,500. You will receive an email within 24 hours with your tracking id’s.
Tracking id’s will look very much like your Associates ID but a bit different. If your Associates ID is “MyWebSite-20″, then your tracking id’s look something like “MyWeb1-20″ through “MyWeb1500-20″.
You will then be able to use your tracking id’s in the same place as you would use your Associates ID.
Pretty cool isn’t it! I wish I’d known this earlier.
