Add slick looking Amazon Carousel widgets to your blog posts in a brain-dead simple way! Just say [carousel] to add a Carousel anywhere on your blog.

Amazon Widgets are small Flash-based mini-applications that bring Amazon's rich features right to your website. The Amazon Carousel is a cute looking Flash widget which lets you showcase products that are relevant to your blog post.

There are many ways to create a Carousel. Here are some:

  1. [carousel]
    This creates a Carousel containing the latest bestselling books from Amazon.

  2. [carousel marketplace="GB"]
    This creates a Carousel containing the latest bestselling books from Amazon.co.uk. Valid values for market place are: JP, FR, DE, GB, US, CA

  3. [carousel list="Bestsellers" category="Jewelry"] <br/> This creates a Carousel containing the latest bestsellers from the Amazon Jewelry store (http://amazon.com/jewelry). Note that you can replace 'Bestsellers' with 'NewReleases', 'MostWishedFor' or 'MostGifted'.

  4. [carousel keywords="Nintendo Wii" category="VideoGam es"] <br/> This creates a Carousel containing 'Nintendo Wii' products from the Video Games category at Amazon.

  5. [carousel asins="B0011Z0YR2,B00137W4P8,B0013G0PG4,B001AUCK52,B001BVXUPY,B001AU6XE6" title="My favorite MP3 songs." shuffleProducts="True"] <br/> This creates a Carousel titled 'My favorite MP3 songs' and contains various MP3 album covers. It shuffles the albums so that they appear in a random order each time the widget is displayed.

  6. [carousel list="NewReleases" category="VideoGames" tag="ohmyki-20" showBorder="True"] <br/> This creates a carousel containing the latest new releases from the Video Games store at Amazon. The widget will have a black border since we're setting showBorder to true. Since the 'tag' parameter is specified, you will earn an Affiliate referral fee for any sales made through this widget. IMPORTANT: As of 9/6/2010, 10% of your impressions will be tagged with the plugin creator's tag (wp-carousel-20)

You can customize a lot more in your Carousel widget. Check out the FAQ section for more details.
