Amazon Associates Account Setup

To be able to generate your affiliate links automatically and for the product importing feature to work, Zeno theme requires your Amazon Associates tag.

If you already have an Amazon Associates account, just log-in to you Amazon Associates account and copy your Amazon Associates ID (Tracking ID) from the left side.

If you don’t have an Amazon Associates account yet, just follow the next steps to get one.

You need to go to Amazon Associates, depending on the locale (Amazon store country) from where the products in your store will be.

Your Associate ID works only in the locale in which you register.

If you want to be an Associate in more than one locale, you must register separately for each locale.
