How To Get Amazon affiliate link to promote?

3 replies
This may be a dumb question but I cannot figure out how to just get an affiliate link from amazon.com to promote. I already have an associates account with them but when I try to get the link it gives me a html box to paste.

But I want to get just the actual link with no html. How would I do this? Anyone know? Thanks

    In the html code you should be able to find your link, just the big starting with http:// you just have to look for the url within the html code

    Go to any Amazon product page and you should see a dark grey nav bar at the top of your screen.

    Click on "Link to this page" at the top left. A window will appear with the html code you mentioned. Click on "Text only" in the top left section.

    In the right side frame you should see "Preview" and a link with the product name.

    Right click on the product link and chose "Copy link location". Paste it on to your text editor (like Notepad)

    That should give you your affiliate link to that product.
