Amazon clicks don't show up on the Amazon Associates site

Hi there,

I keep checking on Amazon Associates to see the Amazon clicks that appear in our Module Clicks page here on Wizzley, but all that's showing up are clicks from the other Web site associated with my Amazon Associates account.

What am I doing wrong? How exactly should I mention Wizzley on there as my second Web site? I think I made a mistake by writing http://wizzley.com/authors/Mira/

I'm thinking there should be a root common to all pages -- so then I should have http://wizzley.com Is that what you guys are using with your Amazon Associates account?

Thank you!

Have you set up a special tracking ID for Wizzley on Amazon and used that in your settings here?

Nope. I simply added http://wizzley.com there, since you can have more than one site. Do I need to make a separate Associates account for Wizzley only?

Edit: I checked on the Amazon Associates Web site and they say they prefer people to keep just one account and add different tracking IDs (up to 100). I emailed them to get a new tracking ID. Maybe that will solve the problem. Also asked them where and how I should add the Wizzley URL. Maybe they'll do it for me right :D.

No, you need to create a tracking ID for Wizzley in your Amazon account and add that here in your Wizzley settings http://wizzley.com/accounts/settings/

Right. That's what I thought, even though Amazon allows you to group more sites under one Tracking ID if you want to. But it's better to have a second Tracking ID anyhow. Thanks, Sam!

You don't need to email them, you can do it yourself in your Amazon dashboard!

So I created a new tracking ID for Wizzley. Now where do I specify a URL for this new ID? I only have "Edit your Web site information" under Account Settings. I added there http://wizzley.com as my second Web site URL but how do I connect that to the Wizzley ID?

Edit: Oh, wait, I don't think I need to connect it in any way. I just add the ID for Wizzley here on Wizzley and that's that.

Correct, this ID goes into your settings here, that way it gets add to the Amazon module automatically.

Thank you, Sam. Now I keep looking on the Amazon Associates Web site to make sure it actually works.
