If you don't have access to the Amazon Data Feed API (you probably don't), you can still get Amazon data in Affluent automatically using the Affluent Chrome browser extension.
This article explains how to set up Amazon using the browser extension.
Step 1 - Connect your Amazon account in Affluent
- Log in to your Affluent account and navigate to the platform catalog.
- Search for and click on "Amazon"
- In the modal that opens, select "Browser Extension" as your connection method.
- Enter a nickname for your account as well as your Amazon username and password.
- Choose if you would like the "Tracking ID" field in Amazon to be mapped to Channel (recommended), Sub ID, or Campaign in Affluent
- Click Connect
Step 2 - Install the Affluent browser extension
Important Note: You may need to edit some settings in your Amazon account for the extension to work - details below.
- Navigate to the Affluent extension in the Chrome Web Store. The Affluent browser extension is currently only available in Google Chrome.
- Click "Add to Chrome" and wait for the extension to install
- Once the extension is installed, you will see an Affluent logo in the top right-hand corner of your browser (see image below).
- Click the logo. You will get a pop-up with a login form. Log in to your Affluent account (not to your Amazon account)
And that's it! The extension will automatically download reports from your Amazon account and upload them to Affluent for you.
Two Step Verification
For the Affluent browser extension to automatically pull in Amazon data for your account, you will need to either disable "Two-Step Verification (2SV)," or if you have 2SV enabled, white-list the browser where you have the extension installed.
Instructions for white-listing a browser (recommended)
- Log in to Amazon. If you are already logged in, log out and log in again.
- If you have "Two-Step Verification" enabled, When you log in you will get a message saying a One Time Password has been sent to your phone number. Under the input where you put that number, you'll see a checkbox labeled "Don't require OTP on this browser". Check that box, enter the password you received, and sign in.
Instructions for disabling Two-Step Verification
- Log in to Amazon (Amazon.com, not the affiliate area)
- Navigate to "Your Account" and then "Login & security"
- Click "Edit" next to "Two-Step Verification (2SV) Settings:"
- On the following page, click the "Disable" button to disable Two Step Verification
