Create affiliate links

You can link unique URLs, or affiliate links, that attribute traffic and conversions to your promotional campaigns to generate revenue and earn commissions with the Google Play Affiliates program.

How to create an affiliate link

You can create affiliate links 2 ways:

  • Manually: Put the affiliate links together on your own for eBooks and Audiobooks on the Play Store.
  • Google Play Link Builder: Use our tool to quickly create badges for Movies & TV on the Play Store.
Play Books: Create affiliate links manually
  1. Find your Google Play Affiliate ID. In Partnerize, this is your “Publisher Camref.”
    1. On your computer, open Partnerize.
    2. Click Admin and then Camref.
    3. Find your Camref in the tracking link.

      Note: Each Google Play vertical you’re approved for has a unique Affiliate ID. For example, if you want to promote content on Google Play Books, then you’d need to use a Google Play Books Affiliate ID to create your affiliate links. The Google Play Books Affiliate ID would be different than the Play Movies & TV Affiliate ID.
  2. Find the full Google Play Store URL you want to link to.
    • eBooks
      • ISBN: https://play.google.com/store/books/details?id=ISBN_{book ISBN}
      • EAN: https://play.google.com/store/books/details?id=EAN_{book EAN}
      • GGKEY: https://play.google.com/store/books/details?id=GGKEY_{book GGKEY}
    • Audiobooks
      • ISBN: https://play.google.com/store/audiobooks/details?id=ISBN_{audiobook ISBN}
      • EAN: https://play.google.com/store/audiobooks/details?id=EAN_{audiobook EAN}
      • GGKEY: https://play.google.com/store/audiobooks/details?id=GGKEY_{audiobook GGKEY}
  3. Add your Google Play Affiliate ID to the end of the Google Play Store URL. For example, if your link identifies an eBook by ISBN, it would look like this:
    https://play.google.com/store/books/details?id=ISBN_{book ISBN}&PAffiliateID={Your Affiliate ID}
  4. (Optional) To allow more precise tracking of your campaigns, add a unique reference to your URL. Learn how to track your campaigns.
  5. Add the link to your website, social media page, or other campaign. To improve your click-through rate (CTR), we recommend that you add a badge to your website.

    Note: As a Google Play Affiliate, you must meet Google Play brand guidelines when you link to the Google Play Store.
