How to use Amazon product images on your website

In my post, I show you step by step how you can use Amazon product images on your blog posts.

Here is a screenshot of a post from one of my websites. All the images are from Amazon. I have been audited by Amazon and accepted into their affiliate program.

Images from Amazon

Amazon allows you to use product images from their website on your blog as long as you use the ‘Site Stripe’. From this stripe, Amazon affiliates can get Amazon product images and links that have unique affiliate codes embedded.

Let’s get started

What is the Amazon Site Stripe?

The site stripe is a feature accessible to Amazon Affiliates. After you sign up for an Amazon affiliate account and are logged in, the site stripe appears along the top of your screen every time you visit a page on Amazon.

You can see the site stripe on the top of the page just above the search bar in the image below. On the left, you can see ‘Amazon Associates SiteStripe’ and on the right, you can see’ Earnings’ and ‘Help’

How to use the Site Stripe to get Amazon product images

To get an image from Amazon, first, select a single product page. As an example, I have chosen the Wyse cam.

To get an image for this cam, click on the ‘Image’ link in the site stripe. Then you get this popup.

In this popup, there is an image preview, size selector, and highlighted HTML code. Before you copy the HTML code, choose the image size you need. In my example, I have selected medium. Once selected, copy the code.
