Buy This Book

Buy This Book allows authors to display their books on their website with links to six different possible buying options - Amazon, Kobo, Barnes &

Buy This Book is a WordPress plugin designed for authors. It was created to combat three problems:

  • Many authors use things like the Amazon Affiliate widget to display their books, which is stripped out of webpages by adblockers. This results in their books never being seen by a significant chunk of users, as adblockers are the most popular plugins for Chrome and Firefox.
  • If authors want to just add their books and a link to Amazon, etc, they’re obliged to know some HTML and it’s something of a pain in the ass.
  • Neither option is ideal when books can be available on multiple websites.

Buy This Book takes cover images and up to seven websites, and displays them on the sidebar with a slideout menu.

It supports:

  • Amazon
  • Kobo
  • Barnes & Noble
  • Smashwords
  • Lulu
  • iBooks
  • One custom option

This version of the plugin can also be modified to use other services.
