Amazon Product in a Post Plugin

Add formatted Amazon Products to any page by using just the Amazon ASIN. Great for monetizing your posts. Uses Amazon Product Advertising Keys (FREE)

NOTE: Due to changes in Amazon's Product Advertising API Terms of Use, this plugin requires you have an AWS Access Key ID and Secret Access Key of your own to use. See Plugin FAQs for links to sign up.

Amazon Product In a Post Plugin is used to to quickly add a formatted Amazon Product/Item to a post or page by using just the Amazon product ASIN (also known as the ISBN-10).

What can you use it for? With this plugin you can:

  • Add any Amazon product or item to an existing Post (or Page) or custom Post Type (using the shortcode).
  • Monetize your blog posts with custom Amazon Product and add your own Reviews, descriptions or any other thing you would normally want to add to a post - and still have the Amazon product there.
  • Easily add only the items that are right for your site.
  • Add the product to the TOP of the post content, the BOTTOM of the post content, or make the post content become part of the product layout (see screenshots for examples)
  • You can now add as many products as you want to any existing page/post content using a Shortcode - see Installation or FAQ page for details.
  • Limited French, German and Spanish language support for text labels in displayed product.

If you have an Amazon Affiliate account and you don't think the available Amazon widgets are that great or are what you need, then this plugin might be for you.

How it Works: The plugin uses the newly revised (and re-named) Amazon Product Advertising API.

To use the plugin, you must have an 1). an Amazon Affiliate Account, and 2). Amazon Product Advertising API keys. You can sign up here if you do not have them - it is free and not extremely difficulty (takes about 15 total for both). Once you have an account, install the plugin, then enter your Amazon Associate ID in the plugin options page. Then enter you API keys. You are now ready to start adding products to your post!

PLEASE NOTE: If you DO NOT add your custom Associate ID, you WILL NOT get credit for any purchases made from your product posts - so don't set up products on a live site unless you enter that first - or you may lose out on some referral $$.
