- Download the your zip file report, and upload it to Affilimate with the Import button
Amazon is one of Affilimate's few manual integrations. This means that for new conversions to appear in Affilimate, you'll need to upload a new report each time.
Start by opening two tabs in your web browser:
Step 1. Under "Summary for This Month" click on "View full report"
Step 2. Adjust the dates and choose "This Year" to export
In the future, you don't need to choose "This Year" but can rather choose "Last 30 days" or "This Quarter".
But for your first import, we recommend bringing a full year of sales data for more context.
Step 3. Click Download Reports
This will open a popup where you can choose the kind of report you want to download.
Step 4. Uncheck ALL boxes except "Earnings" and under "Format:" choose "CSV"
While those other reports might be worth checking out, Affilimate is only interested in your earnings reports, because those provide product or SKU-level data.
Step 5. Click the "Generate Reports" button
It can take a few seconds, depending on how many sales you need to export. The more the better, right?
Step 6. Once it's finished, click "Download" in the row named "Fee-Earnings"
This will download a ZIP file containing your CSV report to your computer.
You'll see the file appear at the bottom of your browser window in a "Downloads" section.
Leave it there.
Step 7. Without closing the "Downloads" section of your browser, change tabs to Affilimate
Make sure you're on the "Performance" page, and have clicked the blue "Connect partners" button.
Then drag the ZIP file you just downloaded onto the grey, outlined "dropzone" in Affilimate.
Step 8. Review your sales, and if they look good, press the big blue button!
We'll do a little data crunching, and then your Amazon sales will appear in the Performance section of the Affilimate app.
