How to Start an Amazon aStore


  1. Join the Amazon Associates Program and become an affiliate. (See Resources for a link.)
  2. Sign into your affiliate account and select “aStore” from the menu toolbar at the top of the page.
  3. Select the products you want to sell in your store. You can include specific products or search by keyword for recommendations. Pick as many items as you want.
  4. Group your items into categories. Using categories makes it easier for people to find what they want. An aStore selling women’s shoes can have categories such as “boots” and “athletic.” An aStore selling video games can include categories like “action” and “role playing.”
  5. Select and customize a theme. Pick the color of the page background and text. Decide which font you want to use. Optionally, name your aStore and upload a logo for the header.
  6. Click “Finish and get link” when you’re happy with your aStore. Use the link to embed the aStore into your blog or website.
