Your Amazon profile is what identifies your presence as both a buyer as well as a potential seller on the platform.
You can use your Amazon profile to leave reviews and feedback on products as well as follow your favorite stores and authors.
In this post, we’ll expand upon how you can obtain your Amazon profile link so that you can easily share it with others.
How to Find Your Amazon Profile Page Link
It’s actually extremely simple to find your Amazon account page link.
Once you have this link, you can share it with anyone you want so that they are able to follow you and see your latest reviews and feedback on different products.
Follow these steps to obtain your profile link:
Step 1: Log into your Amazon account.
Step 2: Hover your cursor over Accounts & Lists on the top-right part of the Amazon home page.
Step 3: From the drop-down menu that shows up, click on Account as shown below:
Step 4: Scroll down until you see the Ordering and Shipping Preferences section on the left-hand side of the page. Click on Your Amazon profile in this section as shown below:
Step 5: This will take you to your Amazon profile page.
Step 6: Look in the address bar in your browser. The URL present there is your Amazon profile page link.
It should be something similar to “https://www.amazon.com/gp/profile/amzn1.account.xxxxxxxx” where the x’s represent an alpha-numeric string.
Getting a Public View of Your Account Page on the Website
When you go to your profile page using the method we’ve described above, then your Amazon profile shows up to you in a private view.
In other words, it does not show up the way it would if someone else were viewing your profile.
It is your own private view that is designed more for customization and change, not for showcasing.
In order to check what others see when they go to your profile page link, just follow these steps:
Step 1: Log into your Amazon account.
Step 2: On the right side of the Amazon home page, take your cursor over to Accounts & Lists.
Step 3: A drop-down menu will show up once you hover the cursor over Accounts & Lists. From this drop-down menu, click on Account as shown below:
Step 4: Scroll down until you get to the Ordering and Shipping Preferences section. In this section, click on Your Amazon profile as shown below:
Step 5: This brings you to your Amazon profile page.
You will see a notification bar above that says “This is your private view of your public profile. See what others see.”
The “See what others see” will be a hyperlink. Click on it in order to see how other people view your public profile.
This view is essentially what others see when you send them your Amazon public profile link.
Important note: If you wish to go back to the original view of your profile page where you could make changes, then simply click on “Go to your private view”.
Getting a Public View of Your Account on the Amazon App
We’ve explained above how you can view your profile as others would see it through the Amazon website.
This is also possible via the Amazon app. All you have to do is follow these steps:
Step 1: Open the Amazon app.
Step 2: Log into your Amazon account.
Step 3: Near the bottom of the screen, you will see an icon that has three horizontal lines as shown below. It’s the Settings icon. Click on it.
Step 4: Once you tap the three horizontal lines, another menu with four buttons will show up right above it. From this menu, Tap “Account”. This will open up your Amazon account options and settings.
Step 5: Scroll down until you reach the Personalization section and then, click on Profile. This will take you to your Amazon profile.
Step 6: You’ll see the same notification bar in the Amazon app that you did on the website. It will state “This is your private view of your public profile. See what others see.”
Click on See what others see in order to get a view of how the public sees your Amazon profile link.
Similar to the website, you can go back to private view by clicking on Go to your private view.
