Some hints and information:

The Problem with Amazon Product Links

Amazon has establishments in multiple countries, however each site offers different products to different regions of the world. So if you create a link to an Amazon product, chances are that people visiting from the web are not getting directed to "their" Amazon.

Complicating matters further, its affiliate program is not international, so you need to be subscribed for each store program separately. If you have an international website, you'd want to get sales comission worldwide.

This means you need to create separate links for every Amazon in your target country (US, Canada, Germany, France etc).
This is troublesome and possibly ugly in your website layout.

Wouldn't it be nicer to to create one link for all Amazon stores?.

You can have an international Amazon Associates link that redirects to the correct locale.

The Solution

You can have one special global link for all stores. This site provides a way to create such a special link that automatically detects the users country (doing geo-targeting) from their IP and forwards them to the correct Amazon store for their country.

This service is free and easy to use. It does not require a plugin and works with every website or CMS.

You can use our Link Builder to link to specific products or to a search results page.

You should use the builder to create your own links!


Why should you use it?

browser stats - different countries

On a typical website, visitors will come from all over the world. But the classic affiliate links only work with visitors from a single country. You can multiply your earnings by having international Amazon links which work for all visitors, directing them to the right one of Amazon's different country sites.

P.S.: Did you know that 370 million people have English as a second language and around 750 million people speak it as a foreign language?

Who is this for?

There is two kind of people that should use A-FWD.

Note that you might be in both groups :-)
With A-FWD both kinds of traffic will be able to create better Amazon affiliate links.

How does this work?

Book author? Try our Book Linker

We're using Geo-IP technology to locate the user clicking on a link and then forward them correctly. The locating happens automatically, there is no popup or question asked to the user. So it works with every browser (both mobile and desktop).

Where does this work?

If you create an A-FWD link you don't need to install any software or plugin for it, making your life easier. You can also use the link on other media like e-mail, twitter or chat.
(As usual, you need to respect Amazon's rules about this kind of usage!)
