Amazon Singapore Drops

On October 8 of 2019, Amazon added a seventeenth regional storefront, Amazon Singapore, furthering its march towards global (retail) domination!  

While this is yet another huge step forward for the Seattle-based company, what really caught our attention was their seamless launch of the Amazon Singapore Associates program at the same time as the store launch. As far as we can tell, this is the fastest rollout of an affiliate program yet (Amazon UAE was quick, but it took them a day or two, and Amazon Australia’s affiliate program launch was many weeks delayed). Amazon.sg marks the fifteenth regional, public, and independent affiliate program that Amazon supports (only the Netherlands storefront doesn’t have an affiliate program while the Associates program for Turkey is currently private).

Walmart.com + Geniuslink [Updated]

Update: As of June 2019, Walmart’s affiliate program is now being managed by Impact!

If you signed up for the program before June 2019, then you’re probably participating in the Walmart affiliate program as managed by Rakuten Linkshare. Both programs are still officially supported and we haven’t heard of any plans to deprecate the Rakuten program. If you’re signed up for Walmart (Rakuten), there should be no need to sign up for Walmart (Impact).

You can find instructions on how to add in your Walmart Partner IDs in our Knowledge base: Rakuten or Impact.
