    I've built a website using PHP that automatically builds and attaches Amazon affiliate links to certain elements on the page.

    It also automatically attaches the right TLD to the link depending on where the user is in the world, so someone in the UK doesn't get a link to amazon[dot]com where they can't actually buy anything, but to amazon[dot]co[dot]uk instead.

    But this is all using just one Amazon affiliate program tag, '[some word]-21'. Will I still get commissions for my auto-changing links? Or will I only get clicks for purchases in my home country's 'marketplace' as Amazon calls it?

    Do you have separate associates accounts in all territories?

    https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/
    https://associates.amazon.ca/
    https://partenaires.amazon.fr/
    https://partnernet.amazon.de/
    https://affiliate-program.amazon.in/
    https://associados.amazon.com.br/
    https://programma-affiliazione.amazon.it/
    https://affiliate.amazon.co.jp/
    https://afiliados.amazon.es/
    https://affiliate-program.amazon.co.uk/
    https://associates.amazon.cn/

    AFAIK, you need to be registered in each programme and you will get new links associated with those accounts.

    Signed up to 'em all. Surprisingly easy. Once you do one of the European ones it has buttons so you can auto-create accounts for all the other countries.
