Amazon Post Purchase

Display Amazon products related to a your post or page in a side-bar widget by simply setting the Amazon ASIN (ISBN-10) in Custom Field.

  1. Upload the amazon-post-purchase folder (inside the zip file) to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress

After you have installed the plugin and loaded the widget into your side-bar, you will need to configure it.

Drag the "AmazonPostPurchase" widget to the appropriate side-bar container. Where prompted, set the following fields:

  • "Title" - this will be the title displayed above the widget in the side-bar.
  • You can make this simple text, like "You Might Also Like", or
  • You can make the title dynamically display the Author/Artist's name by using the keyword #AUTHORNAME#, like this: "Recently by #AUTHORNAME#".

  • "Amazon Affiliate ID" - this should be your Affiliate ID. If you do not set this field, all referral $$ from Amazon will go to us.

  • "Custom Field Name" - this is the 'name' you will use when you create a custom field in your post. By default this value is set to 'ASIN'.

No additional adjustments are needed unless you want to configure your own CSS styles.

WARNING: If you do not add your Amazon Affiliate ID, you will NOT get credit for purchases made using this Plugin.

Usage

Once installed, adding a product to your post is a simple process:

  • Go into the full edit mode for the post (Post/Edit then select the post).
  • Under the Custom Fields, click on the link 'Enter New' (after you've done this the first time, you will simply select the value from the drop-down list).
  • Input the value you set in the widget "Custom Field Name" in the "Name" field. (we recommend the word "ASIN").
  • Input the ASIN for the product you want displayed in the "Value" field.
  • Save or Publish the post.

Yes -- it's that easy!
