Part 1 – Create retailers

Retailers are the storefronts that sell the products you will link out to. Think Amazon, Ebay, Etsy, Overstock, and the millions of smaller e-commerce retailers.

In order to make affiliate revenue you must be a part of your retailer’s affiliate program.

We’ll walk through an example below using Amazon as the retailer.

  1. Get your Amazon affiliate ID. If you don’t have an Amazon affiliate ID, you can sign up for one here.
  2. Navigate to your WordPress admin and in the left column you’ll see Reviews > Retailers, click that link.
  3. Then Add New, type in Amazon for the title, then select Amazon from the affiliate network.
  4. Enter your Amazon affiliate ID in the next text field.
  5. Optionally, type in any extra data for this retailer, Amazon in this case. This could be information like “Free shipping for orders over $50”, “Amazon prime ships free”, or anything related to this retailer.
