direct link attribution for intnl amazon like .de in overrideLinkInvocation

We want to use direct links to amazon.co.uk/.de/.fr selectable from a link in a mobile app by calling overrideLinkInvocation as in the example. Will the attribution be correct for links like: http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00D2J4D4U/ 1. Is the documentation strictly correct stating: "Mobile Associates API enables you to direct users to the Amazon.com" The example for linkService.overrideLinkInvocation(view, " http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008GGCAVM"); refers also to amazon.com. This would imply NO usage of amazon other than .com 2. We checked that we correctly land on the international pages. The question is if the attribution will also be correct The documentation states [b][/b][b][/b][b][/b]

Override Existing Links in a WebView service is the only method through which a developer can direct customers to a non-US Amazon domains. In this case a customer with valid DE account will be able to sign in and purchase the product. However the developer will not get any affiliate fee for that referral as Associates program is only available if referrals to the US domain. Any referral method other than override link service, will always direct customers to the US domain.
