The basic plan of ProURLs is completely free to use, and a credit card isn’t required to sign up. If you haven’t already, create your account now.
Once you are on the dashboard, you will see a ‘My Account’ menu that you can use to edit the information you have already entered while signing up.
Secondly, go to the ‘Affiliate’ page and enter your affiliate tag of each country. Please note that you will have to register for each Amazon Storefronts and generate IDs separately.
Amazon currently has dedicated storefronts for 12 countries. The United States, Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Brazil, India, China, and Japan. All of these countries have their own Associates Program. Affiliate Programs in India, China, Brazil, Japan, and Mexico, however, requires you to have a bank account within each country.
Another FAQ that might help you: How Do I Add My Affiliate IDs to My ProURLs Links?
Creating your First Link
Easiest part. Go to your dashboard and click the ‘Generate Link’ button in the right side.
Country-level setting: Leave this part if you’d like ProURLs’ technology to redirect to the relevant Amazon country-level pages automatically. However, if you’d like to set different parameters for each country (say product ID for United States, and search term for the rest of the countries), you can set up accordingly.
Input: Enter one of these three:
- Search Term: If you want to return an Amazon search results page with the selected keyword.
- URL: If you have the direct URL of Amazon page you have chosen.
- EAN: If you have the product ID of the Amazon product.
The below is an example for link generation. With this settings, a visitor from United States will be taken to Amazon.com search page for ‘harry potter and the sorcerers stone’; a Spanish visitor will be redirected to the direct harry potter product link of Amazon.es; and for rest of the countries, they will be taken to their own country-specific store’s search results page for the keyword ‘harry potter and the philosophers stone’.
…or simply, leave all the settings and just enter the search keyword. Search pages have proven to convert 30% better.
Right before you click the ‘Generate Link’ button, always remember that you have multiple ShortURLs to choose from. These ShortURLs are optimized for more click-thru-rates.
