How do I create an affiliate link?

Go to your post/page editor, mark a text and hit our TinyMCE button.

Alternatively you can use our shortcode: e.g. [eal]Amazon Echo Dot[/eal]

What shortcodes are available?

The default shortcode looks as follows:

[eal]Amazon Echo Dot[/eal]

Sometimes the link text must be different, which can be done as follows:

[eal search=”amazon echo dot case”]Best Echo Dot Cases[/eal]

Additionally the link title can be updated as follows:

[eal title=”View Ecto Dot Cases on Amazon”]Best Echo Dot Cases[/eal]

In case you want to link a certain product detail page, pass the ASIN over to the shortcode:

[eal asin=”B01DFKC2SO”]Amazon Echo Dot[/eal] or [eal asin=”B01DFKC2SO”]Get your Echo Dot here[/eal]

How does geotargeting work exactly?

In order to redirect your site visitors to their nearest Amazon store, the plugin needs to find out their country. This is done by passing their IP to the API of the following services: ipinfo.io and freegeoip.net. Additionally the country will be stored for a few hours in a cookie.

Now all plugin generated affiliate links will be replaced by using the local tracking ids you entered on the plugin settings page before.

Geotargeting is an optional feature and must be expressly activated.

Multisite supported?

Yes of course.
