As a member of the Amazon Influencer program, there are a number of ways you can share your favorite products with your followers.
While your Influencer storefront (vanity URL) is a great way to share your favorite products, there may also be times you want to recommend a specific product to followers. You can easily create and share individual product links using the Amazon SiteStripe tool.

What is SiteStripe?
SiteStripe lets you create links to specific products or pages right on the Amazon website. Once enabled, SiteStripe will appear at the top of every Amazon page and provides quick and easy access for generating and sharing links. In addition, the links you create using SiteStripe will be attributed back to your Associates ID, so when someone makes a purchase through a SiteStripe link, you will be eligible to earn from the purchase.
To enable, log in to your account on Associates Central. Once logged in, at the top, under ‘Tools’, select ‘SiteStripe‘. On the SiteStripe page, a green ‘ON’ should be displayed under the ‘Display Options’ menu item. If this is ‘OFF’, enable SiteStripe via this activation button.
What features does SiteStripe offer?
The following features are available on the SiteStripe tool:
Get Link – Text: Allows you to create short or long URL links to the current Amazon page you are viewing. Your Associates Store ID and a tracking ID are automatically included in the short link, so if a customer clicks the link and makes a purchase, you will be eligible from that purchase. Copy the short link and paste it into a social post, e-mail or use it on your blog or website.
Share: Click on the Facebook or Twitter icons to directly share links on either platform using your own account. After you select the channel, you can add text to customize your post.
