In the case of books with a 10-digit ISBN number, the ASIN will be exactly the same. For all other products, a new ASIN is created when the product is distributed via Amazon.
You can also use the ASIN to find products via the search field on an Amazon site. For example, you could search for the Amazon Echo in Black by typing in its ASIN: ‘B01GAGVIE4’.
Why are ASINs important for Amazon Associates?
Where can I find the ASIN for a specific product?
- In some cases, more characters will be visible after the ASIN in the URL, like this:
ASINs for different product variations
Here’s an example: an ASIN is assigned to the Samsung Galaxy On7 Prime smartphone with 32 GB of memory. Since the smartphone is available with different memory space, more ASINs have been created for each option. If you select a specific memory space on the Samsung Galaxy On7’s product page, the ASIN changes in the Product information section, but not the URL. So if you need the ASIN for a specific product variation, use the ASIN that is displayed on the product page.
