Amazon.nl Affiliate Program Launches

Update 05/28/20: We have finally received PA API access for Amazon.nl, which means that we will now automatically localize and affiliate any Amazon links to or from the Amazon Netherlands storefront! See below for more details.

On March 10th, 2020 we noticed that Amazon added an affiliate program to its only storefront that didn’t have one — Amazon Netherlands (amazon.nl)!  “Amazon PartnerNet” as it’s officially known brings the total number of Amazon affiliate programs worldwide to 17 (16 of which are public and Turkey that is invite-only).
