Amazon Ads Attribution Integration

Note: This integration is in beta. If you are interested in this integration, please reach out to your Singular customer success manager and Amazon representative.

Integration Summary

As an Amazon Mobile Measurement Partner, Singular allows app publishers to track Android app installs on Amazon Ads mobile app campaigns. Once an install has been verified by Singular, you can also track subsequent user engagement of these users in your mobile app.

Singular gets attribution data from Amazon Ads' self-attributing API. Due to Amazon's data-sharing policy, data about installs received from this API is only available in Singular aggregated reports.  See Data Sharing Policies for more information.

Note: Amazon Ads currently only supports mobile Android and Fire device attribution.

Partner Data Policies

As a Amazon Mobile Measurement Partner, Singular adheres to the following data handling requirements. 

Data Retention

Amazon user-level data is removed after 1 months of original attribution.  After 1 month, users attributed to Amazon are treated/marked as "Organic" and reflected as such in both aggregate and user-level reporting in Singular.

Data Access

To protect end-users' privacy, Amazon does not allow access to any user-level data that is based on self-attributed conversions. Any field normally identifying a self-attributed Amazon conversion is marked as "Unattributed".
