There are many people online who struggle to find effective methods that allows them to shorten their Amazon Affiliate links.  These links that you generate from your Amazon associates account can be very long and ugly. The links will typically include your tracking ID, the product ASIN number and of course amazon’s generated code. This is long and ugly. You may also struggle to add these to other services that limit the characters you may use in a message. Twitter would be a prime example!

I have now updated this page with a new video. The old methods are no longer recommended and I suggest that you only follow the new method shown in the video directly below:

Today I have a solution for you and it is super easy to do as well. I have created a short video in which I show you how to quickly shorten your Amazon affiliate links right from within the Amazon product page you are linking to, check out the video below.

It appears that this method is now outdated. In accordance with TOS “you must not use a link shortening service in a manner that makes it unclear that you are linking to an Amazon Site” Click here to read the TOS

I will look to find a new solution and post it here once I am happy with it myself. Thank you for visiting my blog!
