Possible to affiliate Amazon App Deep links?

Hello,

I've scoured the forums and support documentation but am unable to find the answer to this question. I apologize in advance if this is posted in the wrong spot, but I want to know if it's possible to affiliate deep links sent to the Amazon apps (both iOS and Android). For sending traffic to the Amazon website, all you need to do is add tag=affiliatecode in the URL. For Amazon deep links (amzn://apps/android?) that tag doesn't seem to be working.

I've asked Amazon Support and their response was

"For more information on Amazon deep linking, https://developer.amazon.com/public/apis/earn/in-app-purchasing/docs/deeplink"

Which is sort of a non-response, since it doesn't mention anything about affiliation. So - my question is, is it possible to send users directly to the mobile storefronts from a site/app using Deep Links with the associate parameters attached?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

Deep linking for physical or virtual product is not recommended for the products other than apps and probably not possible. The only way to link physical or any virtual products available in Amazon store is using Mobile Associate API. This SDK is built to address this need. You should refer below documentation for more info. https://developer.amazon.com/public/apis/earn/mobile-associates Thanks.

@ Sujoy@Amazon The mobile associate API does not directly address deep links since for virtual products the only possible API is linkshare, which is just opening the URL in a browser. Consider the fact that the Amazon app, and Amazon MP3 are preinstalled on so many Android devices nowadays, the ability to deep link the product URLs to these preinstalled Amazon apps should be there, and not to a browser along. Thanks

I am also interested in deep linking between apps. Seems like Amazon could benefit from it as well.

Hi, Is it possible, that using the Affiliate links which includes the Affiliate tracking ID, a user can be sent directly to Amazon's App for purchase. I can see the Amazon's App schema as "amzn://apps/android?asin=B004FRX0MY". However there is no option to concatenate Affiliate tracking ID, so that the purchase can be attributed to the Affiliate. Thanks

I need this option. I would like to pass my affiliate tag and let my app opens the link inside the amazon app.
