Help me, please!  

I think I have a problem with how I set up my Amazon id here

I have got in a muddle over this and now  'cannot see the wood for the trees'.

I set up my Amazon link when I started to write here.  My click through to Amazon increased but after more then a month with no sales registering but more clicks than ever, I began to doubt I had set it up right. 

I have tried adjusting the id that I put  in the settings here - in the revenue share box - (the first one I tried was my Amazon associate id from my hubs account,  then I substituted a new tracker id that I made especially for here).

Trying to explore the situation further I went to Amazon - and in my associate account I went to the links and banner heading  and from the drop down I selected the Link Checker.

If I try to test by clicking  through on a product on my page here through to Amazon and  then try to test if it is working by copying the Amazon page URL including the codes -  into the Link Checker, I keep getting a message that says - Fail: The link does not correctly tag for your Account.

I am lost on what I can do to change this situation. I am aware that 50% or 60% of the time the code will be Wizzleys. 

I know as soon as someone explains it, I will get that why did I not think of that feeling, but I am lost on how to figure it out at the moment.

There's a guide on how to do it here.  It should be your new tracker ID.  It'll be the same name/codename as the one in the top left-hand corner of your Amazon associates dashboard.

As Jo pointed out: In your Amazon Associates account you will see your ID in a box on the very top left. The title of the box is: "Signed in as". That is your Amazon ID that goes into your settings.

2uesday, I was thinking the same thing, but last week I finally made 39 cents on Amazon. Now I'm on the road to riches.

Well done Brenda for getting it right and the sale too. I did not get it right until I read Jo and chefkeem's reply and then realized where I had gone wrong. 

I am a bit upset with myself as I made the mistake of thinking it was like Adsense and I could only have one account. I cannot believe I misunderstood what was such a simple process to complete.

Thank you Jo and chefkeem for your help.

No problem and I'm glad that it's sorted out now.

It's always good to air these things here too, as the answer will probably end up helping other Wizzley authors too.  At least that's how I look at it, when I'm begging for help!

I just checked on the link checker and it now says I have valid links on the page. This is good news but I am annoyed with myself for all the lost time when I had it wrong. At least it is right now with the help I got here. I really like this place.
