Amazon Affiliate Canada FAQs

Can you be an Amazon Affiliate in Canada?

Yes, people from across the globe are eligible for the Canadian Amazon Associates Program. You can use what’s called geo-targeting or link localization to direct visitors in Canada to the store to earn commissions.

How can I become an Amazon affiliate in Canada?

Step 1. Publish some website content and get some website visitors.

Anybody can sign up for Amazon Associates Canada at any time. But Amazon does have some stipulations for new Amazon Associates. You have to make at least 3 referrals within your first 180 days (about 6 months) in order for your account to remain active.

We recommend already having a WordPress website with multiple pages of content published, and daily traffic visiting your pages. If you do not have website traffic before you try to add Amazon affiliate Canada links, you will likely not make enough sales in the first 180 days and lose your account.

After you have a few web pages getting regular visitors, you can go back and add your Amazon affiliate links to monetize your posts.

Step 2. Sign up for a free Amazon Associate Canada account.

Visit and click the “Sign Up” button. It’s an easy process and you will have to fill out some information including:

  • Your account information – personal contact info
  • Your websites and apps – you must list all of your websites and apps where you plan to promote Amazon products. Important to note is that you cannot use any of your listed websites or apps to promote Amazon products IF they are primarily targeted towards children under the age of 13. You must agree and consent that your websites or apps meet this qualification.
  • Your profile – info about your websites or apps
