Amazon Affiliate Link Globalizer

Description

The plugin will install an output filter that checks for links to Amazon.com and Amzn.com. It then rewrites those links
inside your posts to point to the A-FWD service.
A-FWD will do the country lookup for you. You can specify your Affiliate IDs for all the country sites in the plugin’s WordPress settings.

  • Can rewrite single title text links (with ASIN) of various URL formats
  • Supports Amazon.com and Amzn.com links
  • Can also rewrite links to search keywords / results
  • Can forward to the correct Amazon store (Canada, UK, …)
  • The plugin does not change your database, so if you deactivate it you will get your unchanged Amazon links back.

In contrast to similar plugins, this one does not use Javascript.

Installation

  1. Upload amazon-link-globalizer.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Doesn't work properly

I’ve been using another amazon link localiser for many years, but it’s fallen into disrepair, so I’m looking for another one.

Sadly this plugin doesn’t work properly. I’m in the UK, but when I tested it on an amazon.com link, whilst it correctly put my UK amazon affiliate tag on the url, it still took me to the amazon.COM website, and it should have taken me to the amazon.CO.UK website.
