Amazon operates in six countries around the world: United States, Canada, Germany, France, Japan, and the United Kingdom. The country you choose for the widget will list products from that country. For example, a US widget will send visitors to amazon.com
while the French widget will send visitors to amazon.fr
. To select the country most appropriate for your widget, choose from the drop-down menu on the upper right-hand side of the configuration page. Amazon also runs a separate Associates Program in each of the six countries in which Amazon operates. Currently you can sign up as an Associate in any and all of these countries. Your widget must be configured for the same country as the Associates ID you choose to use in your widget.
