In my post, I show you how to find your Amazon affiliate link, step by step.
You get your Amazon affiliate link from the SiteStripe. The SiteStripe is a toolbar available to Amazon affiliate program members.
Amazon affiliate links contain a unique code and let Amazon know who sent them visitors.
Are you new to the Amazon affiliate program and want to get affiliate links to start earning money? Then this article is for you.
Let us begin.

Step Two – Select Amazon Products To Promote
Amazon affiliate program members get access to the SiteStripe. The SiteStripe is a toolbar that appears at the top of the page when on Amazon. The toolbar is for affiliates to create links.

You can use the Amazon SiteStripe to generate a link to a single product page or a page with multiple products.
On single product pages, you can use a product image to embed on your website. Multiple products pages don’t have this option.

When you request a link from the SiteStripe, it automatically adds your unique affiliate code.
