Amazon Affiliate Links: How They Are Created
When you access the control panel, already in the central part of the first screen you will find a section where you can search for the product you want to promote.
You can search by entering keywords or Amazon identification codes directly.
Once you have found the product, you have a choice of different codes to share:
The simple link is a “naked” url that you can insert as you like within text or images.
To copy it, click the small down arrow located on the right side of the “Get Link” button.
IFRAME CODE FOR TEXT AND IMAGE
The iframe code is used to insert a box containing an image of the product, the name, the price (optional) and obviously also your affiliate link.
This is the first option that appears when you click the “Get Link” button.
On this screen you can also customize the color of the box.
To integrate this code into your WordPress site, copy and paste it into a text widget or, in posts and pages, in the Text Editor.
When you view the post it will automatically be converted into the Amazon box.
When you click “Get link” you will see that on the page there is also another tab, called “Text only”.
Here is a “Link Text” field where you can type the text you want.
In the part below you will find the HTML code to paste the text you typed on your site, in which the affiliate link has already been inserted.

For an affiliate link to work properly it must include the tracking ID associated with your account.

In both cases, you can select the banner size you want to insert and copy the generated code.
