How to test that your Amazon link is Affiliating
To test that your Amazon link is affiliating, build an Amazon geni.us link by first copying the URL of the page on Amazon directly from the address bar of the page.
*Because you have added your Amazon ID to your affiliate page, you will never need to grab affiliate links from that program’s affiliate dashboard.
Then, create a geni.us link with that URL by using the link creator on your links page.
From there, find your geni.us link and click on it.
On the page you land on, investigate the URL to see if our service added your ID. If your link was correctly affiliated, you will see your ID in the URL to the right of "tag=" like in the highlighted sections below.
If it was, then great! You're all set. If not, please ensure that your ID is added correctly to your Affiliate page and there are no typos in your ID.
