Creating a Universal Amazon Link for your Book

(Click any of the screenshots in this article to enlarge them)

It’s a pet hate of mine when authors post book links and only include an Amazon US link. Yes, it’s the biggest market. I get that. But there are lots more of us all over the world who shop at Amazon and might want to buy your books – so make it easy for us – and yourself.

First step – sign up for BookLinker. Create your account, and when it’s all sorted and ready to go, carry on reading.

1. Navigate to your page on Amazon (it doesn’t matter whether it’s UK, US, CA or wherever…)


2. Select the entirety of the link in the address bar, and copy it (just like you’d copy and paste anything else)


3. Open a new tab/window, and navigate to Then go to the ‘create link’ page. Paste your link into the space provided, and hit ‘create universal link.’


4. You’ll then be prompted to select a prefix from the drop down menu on the left. Do that, selecting your preferred prefix. Then type your preferred suffix in the box next to it. When you’re happy, click ‘create link.’

045. That’s it! It really is as simple as that. You don’t have to worry too much about remembering the URL, because it’ll always be stored in your BookLinker account. All you have to do to access the menu is use that little blue box with the three white lines in the top-right hand corner.


6. Now go on… share your link with the world! People will click on it and automatically be directed to their local Amazon store. And the best part? Log back into BookLinker afterwards and you’ll be able to see statistics for where in the world people are when clicking your links. You’ll be surprised…


As well as for books, this also works for your Amazon author page. And, for those of you that are members of Amazon’s affiliate scheme, be sure and visit the ‘My Account’ page, scroll down and enter your affiliate tags to increase your earnings potential.

Happy Linking!
