Approved third party providers

Use of any third party provider to serve and enhance ad content (including creative assets, pixels, and cookies) is restricted to certified technologies.

Certain products and placements including the Amazon native app, Amazon mobile website, Fire TV, IMDb, Seller Central, and the Thank You Page don't support third party ad serving. Third party app serving is restricted to Google Campaign Manager (GCM) INS tags. Amazon cannot serve rich media through GCM. You may use rich media, but must send Amazon internal redirect tags. Additionally, any campaigns using GCM rich media must be in-banner. Also note that we do not accept internal redirects for Homepage Above-The-Fold Placement and Thank You Page placements. Please send iFrame/JavaScript tags for these instead.

The following table is a comprehensive list of all currently certified technologies for ad serving, creative hosting, and similar services.

Third Party Impression and Click Tracking Guide for Fire Tablet and Mobile Ads

Impression Tracking

Third party impression tracking is available for the Amazon Mobile Shopping website and app. Please note that we cannot accept JavaScript tags for any third party tracking on the Amazon mobile app. Amazon uses the same type of impression trackers for “link-in” creatives (e.g. those that link to another page on Amazon Mobile Shopping) and “link-out” (creatives linking outside/off Amazon Mobile Shopping). All impression tracking on Amazon Mobile Shopping is done by way of a 1x1 impression pixel.

Amazon Mobile In-App Click Tracking – Link-In

The Amazon Mobile App templates allow Advertisers to track link in, in-app clicks by use of a click tracker redirect URL that links to a 1x1 blank image.

For Mobile Web and In-App placements, link to this gif: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/G/01/blank/1x1_b.gif

Q: What is a click tracker redirect URL that links to a 1x1 and why do we need it?
A: This type of click tracker loads a page with only a 1x1 gif. The Amazon ad trafficking team will use this tracker in conjunction with your specified landing page to track link-in, in-app clicks and direct the user to the intended landing page.
