Android linking to the Amazon Shopping app with affiliate id

Is it possible to create an affiliated link for Amazon Shopping app on Android?

I'm building a mobile app which i'm planning to distribute on the Google Play where I have affiliate links and they are opened in browser. Example: (http://www.amazon.com/dp/" + asin + "/?tag=myId)

As most of the users are using Amazon Shopping apps I want to be able open my affiliated link not in browser but in the app. I find a solution to build an intent with following uri: "com.amazon.mobile.shopping://www.amazon.com/products/" + asin + "/"

Is it possible to add my associates id to this link?

"com.amazon.mobile.shopping://www.amazon.com/products/" + asin + "/?tag=myId"

Isn't wokking

Hello,

As of April 1, 2016, the Mobile Associates API has been deprecated. The Amazon Appstore is still supporting developers who are currently integrated with the Mobile Associates API, but if you are new the the program you need to onboard with the Amazon Associates team. Visit the Mobile Education Center to learn more.

o make use of link building, developer can use Mobile Associates API. Instead of developer constructing the URLs, he/she can sign-up in developer.amazon.com, get SDK here, integrate and submit the app in Amazon AppStore (via developer.amazon.com) and in google play.
