WP AmASIN - The Amazon Affiliate Shop
[resolved] Can't find Associate Tag, API and Secret Key (5 posts)

    I had uploaded and installed WP Amazon Plugin.
    I activated the Plugin in my Dashboard http://www.sacristies-of-the-world.com
    I was trying to following these instructions below:-

    "Activate your Plugin in your Dashboard and go to "WP Amazon > Settings > Amazon". Enter your Associate Tag, your API Key and your Secret Key and choose the Amazon Shop where you are registered as Affiliate. Where do you find the Associate Tag. For this, you have to log into your Affiliate Account. In the left sidebar you find your Tracking ID. To find your API and Secret Key - which WP Amazon needs to log into the Amazon API - go to Product Advertising API > Manage Your Account > Access Identifiers. After you saved this data, the WP Amazon Plugin is ready to run."

    I logged in to my Affiliate Account to find my API and Secret Key, gone to Product Advertising API, Manage Your Account, and clicked on Access Identifiers. It asked me to sign in to my Amazon account which I have done. This is the page I am now on:-
    https://portal.aws.amazon.com/gp/aws/securityCredentials

    I can't find the Associate Tag, API and Secret Key. Can you help? Thanks.

    Hi erica,
    this might help you finding the API and Secret Key:

    To find your Associate Tag you simply log into your Affiliate Account. On the left you will find a box where it says "Tracking ID", this is what you need. Or simply follow this link: https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/network/your-account/manage-tracking-ids.html

    Found all three! Thank you.
    But unfortunately I still can't use the plugin because when it's activated the line spacing between paragraphs disappears on every blog that I've posted. I asked for help about that problem on this forum but haven't heard anything yet so i can't use the plugin.

    Yeah, I know. Sorry. At the moment I'm wondering myself. Have to go more into it. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Hi there I found this post useful but I have another problem now!
    I have put in my Assoc Tag and Access Key ID and Secret Key in but when I go to add products I get a pop up saying "Cannot Connect to Host" Does any one know what this means and how to resolve it??? I have contacted amazon, they were about as much use as a chocolate teapot. So, I am stuck.
