    I am launching 3 websites soon on the same topic but the content is in two different languages (EN, DE) and in three different regions (US, UK, DE). The websites cover a single niche topic and I would like to add Amazon affiliate links to the sites to earn some money on the side.

    My question is, how do I go about doing this most efficiently in regard to the Amazon Affiliate Program?

    Can I register one Amazon Affiliate account (i.e. in the US) and use it for all three websites through different tracking ID's? If yes, do I still get paid for product referrals on all three website or only for the US one?

    Do I need ONLY one Access Key ID and one Secret Access Key or do I need one from each Amazon location (US, UK, DE)

    Summary:

    - 3 Websites (3 different domains with dedicated ccTLD)
    - 3 regions (US, UK, DE)
    - 2 Languages (EN, DE)
    - all sites contain Amazon Affiliate links

    I would really appreciate it if you guys could help me with your expierence.

    Thanks

    Adam

    Check out the amazon publisher studio plugin
    I think it might be what you're looking for.
    You can have multiple tracking IDs, I would have one for each website so you know what traffic is coming from where.

    Amazon requires you to get affiliate accounts accessible strictly relevant to the country of origin in order to promote there.

    (i.e) - USA sales needs a USA account whereas in Italy you'd need to register an account at the .it extension (Or .fr for Franch respectively.)

    If you want to translate languages having a plugin would efficiently produce a function of you find the right one.
