Create Simple Amazon Affiliate Links on iOS with Launch Center Pro & Drafts

Taking the info from Bob Lee on how to create simple Amazon affiliate links, I created a companion Launch Center Pro/Drafts action to generate these links on the iPhone and the iPad. 

Again, I used Drafts as I did in my Launch Center Pro action for iTunes App Store affiliate links since it has an action to Copy to Clipboard for any snippet.

Create a new Action in Launch Center Pro, and choose “new Draft” from the Drafts submenu. For the text field, add a “clipboard” input item and the following code, obviously inserting your ID number in the appropriate spot. The final result should look as follows:

[clipboard]?tag=YOUR-AMAZON-AFFILIATE-ID

Now all you have to do is copy the link to the product you want to link to, run the LCP action, and when it opens the result in Drafts choose the “Copy to Clipboard” action and paste as desired. Note that you’ll need to specifically select and copy just this part of the Amazon URL:

http://www.amazon.com/dp/ASIN/

where the ASIN is the unique product number for each product.
