Can you use Amazon product images on your website? Yes, you can if you are an Amazon associates program member. Amazon associates have access to the Amazon SiteStripe. The SiteStripe is a tool that allows you to get Amazon product images for your affiliate website.
To sign up for the Amazon associates program, go to Affiliate-program.Amazon.com.

Step One – Sign In To Your Amazon Affiliate Account.
Amazon product images are available to Amazon affiliate members only. To start, sign in to your account.
Once signed in, you get access to the Amazon Site Stripe. The Stripe is how you get product images from Amazon.
You can see the Site Stripe across the top of the screen every time you visit Amazon.com.
Step Two – Select A Single Product Image From Amazon.
Next, find a single product page on Amazon for an item you want to promote on your website. Only single product items have an option to get a product image.
For example, this is the Wyse cam.
Step Three – Select The Image Link From The SiteStripe.
To get a product image, click on the ‘Image’ link in the Site Stripe.
In the popup, there is an image preview, size selector, and highlighted HTML code. Select the size you require, then copy the highlighted code.
Step Four – Paste The Code Into Your Blog Post.
Once you have your code from the Amazon Site Stripe, return to your blog post.
To add the image, create a new HTML block.
Click on the create block icon on the right or top-left.
Search for ‘HTML.’
Select the ‘Custom HTML block.’
Now you have a block for the Amazon Site Stripe code.
Paste the code you got from Amazon into this block.
To preview your image, select ‘Preview’ from the toolbar.
To change the alignment, click on the three dots on the right of the toolbar.
From the list, select ‘Convert to blocks.’
Once selected, you get an error message. Delete the error message first by using the remove block option.
Once removed, you can change the alignment of your image and add an alternative text tag.
To change alignment, select this icon, and make your selection from the list.
To add an alternative text tag, add your text to the box on the right.
Step Five – Publish Your Post.
Once you have finished your blog post, publish your content.
Select ‘Publish’, then ‘View post’ to see your Amazon product image on your blog.
The image has your unique affiliate code embedded. If a visitor clicks on the image, they go to the product on Amazon. If they purchase the item, you get a commission.

You can use Amazon product images for your WordPress blog when you join the Amazon affiliate program. There is one image available for each product.
I don’t recommend downloading images directly from Amazon. All Amazon images are copyrighted. Using the Amazon Site Stripe is the best method.
I recommend adding the ‘Alt text’ to your images. Alternative text helps search engines like Google and Bing understand the purpose of your image.
