    Hi, I live in Canada, have both affiliate accounts in canada and the US. Canadian account didn't make a cent but in the US i made a little bit of money so i focus on the US.

    But just got an email from them stating that i need to clarify that i sell only services to US to receive the money. I understand that part.


    But what happens to the other traffic? ie: Canada,UK,New Zealand traffic that clicks on links and then leads to sales. I miss out?
    I have heard of a plugin call Azon but how does that make a difference. You still need amazon affiliate accounts in each of these countries.

    Can anyone clear this up?

    Thanks.

    Azon will serve your affiliate links based on your visitors IP. For example, is they are from US they'll see your links with your US affiliate ID, if from Canada, links with your Canadian affiliate IP and so on. If you use it, just be careful with the link cloaking option, many affiliates lost their account for doing that.
    And you
    still need amazon affiliate accounts in each of these countries.

    I guess if you want to get commisions from Canada too you have to sign up from https://associates.amazon.ca/ get another aff. id and for every country you want to get comission for.

    Yes, amazon has different programs for different locations and does not cross track. If you get UK visitors to USA sites, you dont earn a thing.

    If you promote product from amazon.com, they only count US traffic that convert.
    If you have canada traffic, you have to register canada amazon, the same for other country

    Don't think there's a way around it. You need an affiliate account for each country and the traffic needs to match that of country of the Amazon affiliate account.
