There's someone online I want to support by using their Amazon (.co.uk) affiliate link for my online purchases. Seems like a win-win. But I'm a bit confused about how to use it.
The link contains a
?tag=abc1234 query parameter, but after I navigate away from the main page, that parameter is lost from the URL. I can't find a setting in my Amazon preferences to put that tag permanently. And nowhere in the process of making a purchase do I see any indication that I'm supporting any Amazon affiliate.
So how does the affiliate link work? How do I make sure I'm using it correctly?
Google has been particularly unhelpful in answering this question. I only get search results on how to be an Amazon associate.
