Blocked all orders.
By , for WP 3.8

This blocked some orders from being linked to my affiliate account.
This is clearly an error that doesn't appear to be common, however it has cost me a fair bit in commission.

As soon as I uninstalled it, my normal daily number of orders appeared again almost instantly. In my opinion, it seems like too much of a risk to install for the sake of having a few extra countries - if it means you cannot feel sure that the links are working as they should originally.

This is not to take anything away from the plugin or the author - I think it's great, and he's doing a good job, but I did always feel a sense of worry as to whether or not it was working properly and this was clearly reflected in my experience of using it.

I had a look round for other similar plugins and it appears the author is in a battle with another plugin of a similar title called 'amazon-affiliate-link-globalizer' of whom he accuses (in reviews) of fixing bugs in that plugin to change your IDs to his completely, so I would NOT use this one either.

Although this is not a problem, it's unfortunately a reflection on authors of both plugins and when dealing with something of this nature, I'd like to feel the plugin is really working and that I can trust the authors, not read both of them slagging off each others plugins.

Dont Use This Plugin
By , for WP 3.5

This Plugin will send your users to the developers affiliate account on Amazon if you dont have an Amazon affiliate account for the country your user is located. Its a huge money making plugin for the developer and you'll be better off making an account with Amazon in the different local sites.
