An Amazon text link is placed within a body text and it links to a product.

This method enables the text link to be modified in various ways. For example, you can change the link text and the link can also bear an Amazon symbol.

An Amazon text link is an HTML link within a body text that links to a product. You can use a single term or an entire phrase as part of the link to draw attention to a product.

By default, the plugin uses the Amazon product title for the link. However, if this is too long or if the link requires a specific term, you can change this using an attribute.

In order for a text link to display a product, you need what is known as the ASIN number. On Amazon, the default location for this number is below the product description. To link to the product, you simply need to insert the ASIN number into the shortcode.

You can read a detailed explanation of how to modify a text link and the attributes that are available by referring to our text link documentation.

To enhance the link visually, a symbol (icon) can be displayed at the end of the link. For example, the Amazon symbol. This creates trust and increases the likelihood that users will click.


Here is an example of a text link:

Alexa Voice Remote for Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick (1st Gen)*  

 

[amazon link="B071D41YC3" link_icon="amazon" /]
