Are you an Amazon affiliate? Have you been wondering whether or not there is an Amazon Associates mobile app that allows you to check your earnings on your Android device and on iPhones? If yes, then you should know that you are not alone. I decided to write this article after searching high and low for an Amazon Associates mobile apps. So, what did I discover? Is there an Amazon Associates mobile App for Amazon affiliates?
There is no Amazon Associates Mobile App
Unfortunately, there is no Amazon Associates mobile app for Android devices and iPhones out there. If you want to check your earnings, you are going to have to go online via your browser. Open your Amazon Associates dashboard and you should be able to view your earnings.
An app would have been great
Personally, I think it’s a bummer that there is no app for Amazon Affiliates to manage their accounts on their mobile devices. I monetize my sites using Amazon Associates and Google AdSense. In both cases, one of the things that I like to do is to periodically check how much I have earned for that week or even for that day.
If you check out my related article on AdSense, you will notice that there is also no Android or iOS app for Google AdSense. It used to be there, but it was discontinued a while back for one reason or the other. I don’t know if there was ever an Amazon Associates mobile app for Android devices.
So, why do I need an app to check my earnings? Well, an app would have been great as a motivating factor for Associates. You spend so much time working on boosting your earnings that it sometimes all appears to be in vain. Being able to quickly see how much you are earning would be a great motivator to keep doing the hard work.
Also, it would be great to be able to check your earnings without having to turn on your computer. I don’t think creating an app that brings these details would be that difficult or costly. It’s just that Amazon probably never bothered with it.
What can you do?
Fortunately, all is not lost. You can still check your Amazon affiliate earnings on a mobile device by simply going through your phone or tablet’s browser. Open the Amazon Associates page and log into your account. You will notice that you get the same page as when you are opening your account on your computer. That’s where Amazon Associates differs with AdSense. With AdSense, you have the option to open a dedicated mobile page. That’s great if you are concerned about saving data.
You don’t want to waste data having unnecessary stuff loaded onto your page. Mobile data can be expensive. That’s the reason why I set out to find out if there is an Android or iOS app for Amazon Associates. Anyway, what do you think. Should there be an Amazon Associates App for Android and iOS devices?
