How to add a Book Link
Updated over a week ago

For authors, writers, and publishers that want to share their books, we have created a Book Link that’ll allow you to display your books directly on your Linktree.

Our Book Link feature is a great option to add because it allows you to show your visitors where they can purchase the paperback, hardcover, ebook, and audiobook copies of your book.

As a bonus, if you're on our Pro plan and are part of the Apple Books, Better World Books, Books a Million, or Barnes & Noble affiliate programs, you can add your affiliate tokens to earn commissions from visitors that purchase your book.

💡 Tip: You can check the supported platforms for Book Link here.
With the Pro plan, you can also get additional insights on the performance of your Book Link by viewing the Link Analytics.

How does it work?

When you paste the URL of a book, our link detection system will search through our supported platforms and generate a list of all the platforms that we can find where your visitors can purchase your book. This list will be displayed directly on your Linktree.

The link will also show your name, the book cover, and the description for any visitors that land on your Linktree and wants to learn more about you and your book.


  1. In your Linktree Admin, select the + Add link button.

  2. Select View all to see our Link Apps and find and select the Book Link option under the Share your content section.

  3. A new Book Link setting will appear. Give your link a Title.

  4. In the Product reference field, Paste the URL or ISBN (ISBN-10 or ISBN-13) of your book.

    🔔 Note: Please allow up to 30 seconds for the system to search for all retailers.

  5. Select to either Display available retailers or Go directly to URL.

  6. For customization options, check off the Display prices and/or Include used copies in results.

That's it! Your Book Link is live on your Linktree.
