FAQ

Is it really free?

The BestAzon wordpress plugin is free, and will always remain free. This plugin enables redirection of all your Amazon URLs to BestAzon Link Globalization service, provides other useful features that are actively being developed, and is supported very well.

The plugin uses BestAzon service, web’s most popular Amazon link globalization service. The service offers two commercial models – a) Amazon Tag Non-Profit Donation where a certain % of your clicks will use tags from charities, and will show an intermediate page with advertisement or b) A fixed flat fee. You can switch between these models at will, and by default the Amazon Tag Non-Profit Donation model is used, unless you subscribe to fixed monthly fee. The detailed Terms of Usage for this service can be found here

What charities do you donate to?

In case you chose Amazon Tag Non-Profit Donation model (default), a certain % of clicks will use tags from one of the charities. As of now, we donate to Charity Science Foundation, a non profit which further distributes the Amazon commission earned to Schistosomiasis Control Initiative, one of the top charities rated by Givewell.org. We may, at our sole discretion, donate to other non profit organization as well.

So, by using this plugin, you are making more money AND making world a better place! Talk about win-win 🙂

Do you ever use your own Tags?

In one word – no. BestAzon localization service always uses your Amazon tags, or tags from one of the non-profit we support. The scenarios in which we use a non-profit tag are:

  • The visitor is from a location that you have not provided your tag for.
  • You are not subscribed to fixed fee model – in this case, a small proportion of your clicks will use the non-profit tag.

So, in any event – your visitor clicks go to a good cause: your wallet, or good karma by donating to a non-profit! If you want to keep 100% of your commission to yourself, you can easily subscribe to flat fixed fee model.

What kind of links this plugin works or not-work with?

In short, the plugin works on any Amazon, Amzn.to and other short URLs that utlimately redirect to any of Amazon stores in the world. For this to work, the link should be on your website (and not in an iframe).

This pluing will not (yet) work on anything which is loaded in an iframe. Such links include Amazon Native Ads, aStore amd Banners that you load using Amazon HTML code.

Does it work with short URLs as well (amzn.to) or just with long URL?

From Version 1.8.0 onwards, we have added support for shrot URLs too. So both – long URLs with full Amazon link, as well as short URLs (amzn.to) will get converted to a global/localized Amazon store link.

Infact, this service even works with Amazon links that are redirected from other non-amazon URLs (e.g. bitly links, or links using Prettylink plugin). As long as you enter the URL slugs in the setting, those URLs will be followed to find out if they are Amazon links and if yes, they will be converted to a globalized link.

Does BestAzon provide reporting?

You bet! From version 3.5 onwards, we provide integration with Google Analytics. You can access virtually everything to know about the visitors localized through BestAzon using the free Google Analytics service. See more details

As always, no seperate login required, and your information is safe with Google!

How can I check if what commercial model is being used for my domain?

How does BestAzon compare with other Amazon plugins?

Really, you should find it out for yourself!

In short, this is the only wordpress plugin that allows you to:

  • localize all your Amazon links out of the box – without needing any signup.
  • Uses the BestAzon.Io service which is the fastest Amazon redirect available leveraging global delivery network of Amazon Web Services – guaranteeing 100% uptime, and less than half a second latency.
  • Unlike most similar plugins, we DO NOT use our tags on your visitor clicks.
  • Finally, our algorithm is the most advanced in order to detect the right link to forward the visitor to.
  • And ofcourse its free to use!

Try it – worse that can happen is that you don’t like earning extra money, or giving your visitors better experience. Unintiall it then! 🙂

Reviews

Best on the market

This plugin is essential if you want to localise your affiliate links to all amazon stores in the world. I saw a few negative reviews before downloading this plugin about the company using their own affiliate links if you are not signed up to the local amazon store of the country of your website visitor. I searched around at all the other plugins and read the terms of services and came straight back here as this is the best one. They have the cheapest monthly price plan that i saw and if you are just starting a website and building up visitors it is free to use which is needed, only 3 clicks out of every 100 go towards a Charity which is good and better than other plugins, as on other ones i saw you have to buy a subscription for your amazon affiliate links to work in different country’s on bestazon if you insert multiple affiliate id’s for different countries they work. which is why i got this plugin but if you are not registered in a country that a visitor is from they replace the affiliate id with their own which i do not see a problem with as it doesn’t change anything as i wouldn’t be getting the commission anyways, they aren’t being greedy and are contributing to charity’s which is good.

BestAzon Review with active links on a test site. Also covers EasyAzon.

My daughter and her friend are each building Amazon Affiliate Blogs and were having serious problems with directing their Affiliate links to the world wide Amazon shops. They had purchased a program that has a “hover over product pop-up picture links” to Amazon, but they were experiencing severe problems with it.

I decided to set up a test site to help them out and found the same problems. After a bit of a “plug-in” search, I found BestAzon and gave it a try. I ended up creating a long thread with the author on the WordPress forum at: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/ba-missing-one-thing/

With the author’s very active assistance, I was able to turn BestAzon into what was for me, a good working product, and at zero cost. Free is a good price, isn’t it?

I offered BestAzon a review, and have placed my full findings at:
https://popular-electronics.com/bestazon-localize-amazon-links/

I have also included EasyAzon in this review as it warrants a serious look, and if they get rid of the bugs, it will be a seriously effective program at a reasonable price.

As my blog was only a test site, I had to create a new product in order for visitors to test these links. This can be found at https://popular-electronics.com/raspberry-pi/

You are more than welcome to test BestAzon at the above link. Mind you, if traffic and comments become too active, I may have to crank things back a little.

I have no idea if I am going to complete this site as an active Amazon Affiliate Blog or not, as I have too many projects on right now.

Cheers Don…
