Amazon’s New Affiliate OneLink to Monetize International Traffic

We used to have to get separate affiliate links for different Amazon websites in different countries. If we wanted to post 6 products from 6 countries, we had to generate 6 different affiliate links and posted on our website. Now, Amazon resolved our problem, they released OneLink function for multiple countries Amazon sites.


What is OneLink ?

Let’s copy the answer from Amazon official site:

OneLink is a script-based solution that allows you to monetize your international traffic from the United Kingdom, Canada, Italy, France, Spain, Germany, and Japan. When visitors on your web pages click on a text link to buy a product on Amazon, OneLink will redirect your international visitors to their local or nearest Amazon marketplace as this is where they have an account, can see pricing in their local currency and have reasonable, if not free shipping costs. OneLink allows for the best user experience by creating a seamless redirect for your international visitors, allowing them the ability to complete their purchases within their local or nearest Amazon store. This leads to a better shopping experience for your customers, and better conversion rates for you.
