About Amazon Associates Affiliate Program
The Amazon Associates Program is one of the largest affiliate networks in the world that helps content creators, publishers, and website owners monetize their traffic. With millions of products to choose from on Amazon.com, Amazon Associates use easy link-building tools to direct their readers to products and earn from qualifying purchases.
Amazon Associates tracking limitations
Amazon Associates is very limited when it comes to conversion tracking.
- You can't add dynamic parameters to your links
- You can't set a postback URL or webhook in your account to get notified about conversions
What you can do, is add a static tracking ID on your links. This tracking ID enables you to aggregate data for a specific placement, website, or marketing campaign.
While these limitations prevent granular tracking and attribution, they do not prevent you from "tagging" visitors who show interest in a specific product or a product category.
