WP Amazon Ads

WP Amazon Ads - allows you to easily insert Amazon product listings into your WP posts, and earn commission from sales.

WP Amazon Ads is installed like any other WordPress plugin.

1) Download the latest package from the downloads page (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-amazon-ads/).

2) Upload the whole directory into your wordpress plugins directory (usually, yoursite/wp-content/plugins). The plugin must reside in a sub-folder called "wp-amazon-ads" (lower-case!) as supplied in the zip file, else it WON’T WORK

3) Go into the WordPress admin panel, find Plugins and WP Amazon Ads should be listed. Click Activate to activate!

Using WP Amazon Ads

1) You can also get the listings by placing the following code in your template file for your single post. Usually called single.php. Place it inside the loop. I like to place it right after the_content tag.

<?php if(function_exists('wp_amazon_ads')) {wp_amazon_ads($post->ID);}?>
  • After you edit your template file then all you have to do is add a custom field to the post called amazon_search. Set the value for what you are searching for.

ex: Name: amazon_search Value: ipod

3) View the post and you should see the listing show up.

4) Go to the "WP Amazon Ads" admin panel under the Settings dropdown, and modify what you would like.

5) For multi-author blogs, each author needs to enter their campaign ID on their profile page in the input field added at the bottom.

Notes: * If the amazon_search custom field is not used or blank then the ads will not be displayed.
