    Hi Everyone! I am an artist with MP3s on Amazon; when my MP3s went live, they went all over the world, to Amazon in Europe, also Amazon in Japan. Very cool!

    In order to help sell my work in these new markets, I've launched a few foreign language sites (thanks Fiverr!) and am putting the Amazon widgets up. I managed to get signed up as an associate with the EU, aided by Babelfish, but Japanese translation is a bit too much for me :(

    Long story short; is anyone an Amazon associate with Amazon.jp? Or do you know anyone in Japan who might be? What I need is someone to send me the code for some widgets, carousel, slideshow, MP3 player. You can keep any clicks and sales from them. I just want to encourage new customers for the MP3s. I posted this request on Fiverr, and put out the word out on Twitter and Facebook, no response yet.

    Thanks!

    What I do is use Chrome.

    Chrome will detect if it not your default language and will translate the page automaticly.

    Or you can do this.

    Open Amazon US and Amazon Japan side by side.

    The meny item won't be that different.

    No probs.

    I manage to register like this, since there's many item at Amazon Japan are not available in Amazon US.

    But be aware that, some item are only for domestic market (only inside Japan).

    I'm not making a lot on Amazon affiliate myself, I was mostly interested in it to promote our own music titles, which are on Amazon.jp as MP3s. But general advice for Amazon affiliates, aim for expensive items, like electronics, since Amazon pays very little. This is just an example, but I was Googling for wind and solar panels, and came across a site with good articles on the subject, and an Amazon shop with everything solar and wind power, and all those items are pretty expensive. Another idea might be high priced fashion or cosmetics, or golf. But something that is popular, expensive, and hard to find at the shopping mall is what to aim for on Amazon.

    There is free Wp plugin, something Amazon localazer I think, so it redirects visitors to all countries from one site, no need to translate anything

    Just a reminder that, if If i'm not mistaken, you can't get paid by amazon.jp except by amazon gift cards or if you have a bank account in japan :)
