Amazon Book Store

Randomly display one or more Amazon products in the sidebar; products are selected from POST-specific pools, or from a 'default' pool that you define.

Install the Widget

Install the plugin, then activate it. Once activated, configure the Widget:

  • First, drag the 'Amazon Book Store' widget to your sidebar.
  • Where prompted, set the "Title" you want displayed above the widget
  • Input your Amazon "Affiliate ID" and the Country representing the affiliate program you belong to. (Default is 'United States')
  • Select how many product images you want displayed in the widget, 1 or 2.

Configure the ASIN pool

Now navigate to 'Settings' -> 'Amazon Book Store' and add the ASINs for the products you want to be displayed in the widget. There are two categorizations of settings:

  • POST Specific: If set, these products will be displayed when users are reading the designated POST.
  • Default: If the request is to a POST that does not have specific ASINs defined, then the widget will display products from this group.

Wow - that was easy!
