How To Link To Your Books on All Amazon Stores

Amazon has thirteen stores around the world, and you can provide links to your books, on all of them in one convenient place. For example, take a look at my listings under the Tab My Books. Select “The Dragons of Sara Sara” for example. This link will open in a new page, so you will still have this post here when you come back. You will see two clickable buttons within the descriptive text, but scroll down a little, and you will see the thirteen flags of the various countries with their country code next to them. The flags are in a little zip file that I have put here for you to download if you don’t already have your own flags list. These are the flags of the countries only that have Amazon Online Stores that are accessible. I’m not sure about China? It is there for sure – but are book listed on it. Some are – some aren’t. I have two books listed there, but I have no idea how they get there. Obviously not part of the automatic chain that the others use. You will notice that I have the CN, China flag and link in place for that one book, however, it has a different link than used by the other stores. caveat utilitor

Back to listing on your world sites.

If you have a page for each of your titles, and you probably do. You can add this code to the page. If you use WordPress, then simply edit in text mode. That’s easiest. But, don’t accidentally paste material copied from a displaying page. It will interpret the code into HTML, and really mess up your page. If in text mode, ONLY paste text into the page.

Now. let’s have a look at the raw code snippet that you need to paste into the bottom of your page, under your book blurb is a good place. When you have pasted the code into place, your display should look like the example below this code.

HOWEVER… as much as I’d like you to promote my books, you need to put your own book codes in place. You also need to change the location of the flags, so that the link points to where YOU have put them. ie. /flags/au.png  The flag archive

So find your book ASIN number and everywhere you see mine, B00HKZJLJE – You put yours in its place. Too easy right. Now save your page and try it out. No flags showing … hmmm, maybe you didn’t put them where your web page can find them?

Are we there yet Mum? Well here’s a neat trick that will help get you more sales. Do you have an affiliate code set up for your books? Different code for each book remember.

This is mine. For the book The Dragons of Sara Sara. Don’t just copy mine – you will be selling my books. Oh Wait, yes, copy mine.  How nice of you, thanks…


OK, now you have your Affiliate code for your books.

Simply edit the code – in the Text Editor – and change the basic links from this.

<td><img src="/wp-content/plugins/amazon-link/images/flag_br.gif" />  <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">BR</a></td>

to this

Careful. You are actually only changing the bit after the country link. For the sharp-eyed, there are two different countries there.
