How do I change the Amazon ads to pull from the Amazon UK marketplace instead of the Amazon US?

If you belong to the Amazon UK Associate’s Program (your Tracking ID would end in -21) and would like to display your ads in British Pounds instead of US Dollars, then follow the directions below to replace the two current Amazon ad codes.

Start by logging into your Wordpress Dashboard by going to YourDomainName/wp-admin (replace YourDomainName with your own domain : )

 

For the Amazon Store/Shop:

  • Navigate to Pages>”Store/Shop” Page (the name will vary with each site) and click Edit

  • Make sure the Text tab is selected so that the code is viewable, delete the current code, and paste in the following new code:

<script charset="utf-8" type="text/javascript">
amzn_assoc_ad_type = "responsive_search_widget";
amzn_assoc_tracking_id = "yourassociatesidhere-21";
amzn_assoc_marketplace = "amazon";
amzn_assoc_region = "GB";
amzn_assoc_placement = "";
amzn_assoc_search_type = "search_widget";
amzn_assoc_width = 566;
amzn_assoc_height = 610;
amzn_assoc_default_search_category = "";
amzn_assoc_default_search_key = "toys";
amzn_assoc_theme = "light";
amzn_assoc_bg_color = "FFFFFF";
</script>
<script src="//z-eu.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&Operation=GetScript&ID=OneJS&WS=1&MarketPlace=GB"></script>

 

  • Replace “toys” with a keyword relating to your website’s topic and and then find where it says “yourassociatesidhere-21” and paste over it with the your own Amazon Tracking ID

  • Click the Update button to the right

 

For the Primary Sidebar Ad:

  • Navigate to Appearance>Widgets>Primary Sidebar widget and expand the widget by clicking the gray down arrow, and then expand the 3rd Text widget down (Under the Recent Posts Widget) by doing the same.

  • Click the "Text" tab to the right of the "Visual Tab" and you'll see some code come up.  Delete the current code that’s in the widget and paste in the following new code:

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
amazon_ad_tag = "yourassociatesidhere-21"; amazon_ad_width = "300"; amazon_ad_height = "250"; amazon_ad_link_target = "new"; amazon_ad_price = "retail"; amazon_ad_border = "hide"; amazon_ad_discount = "remove"; amazon_ad_include = "toys";//--></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ir-uk.amazon-adsystem.com/s/ads.js"></script>

 

  • Replace “toys” with a keyword relating to your website’s topic and and then find where it says “yourassociatesidhere-21” and paste over it with the your own Amazon Tracking ID

  • Click Save

***This ad unit is “self-optimizing” so it may take a little while for relevant ads to start displaying on your site***

Note:  If you are using the WP Super Cache plugin, you may need to click the “Clear all cached files” button at the top menu on the screen for your changes to show up.
