Flovidy

Description

Localize amazon affiliate links to optimize affiliate commission income. This plugin will change your amazon affiliate urls based on the location of your visitor. This means that a German visitor will get links directing to the German Amazon store and a visitor from Brazil will get links directing to the Brazil Amazon store. Allow you to make more money from the same amount of visitors!

Please see the video and FAQ before you ask questions. Note that in the video there is spoken about a license key. This used to be a paid plugin, so that part is irrelevant now anyway. Please ignore that part.

Installation

Install the plugin like any other plugin. Then go to settings -> Flovidy. Fill in your US referral code and all other referral codes you have. That’s it! Enjoy!

FAQ

Q: Does this work with a caching plugin?
A: Yes, it does work with any caching plugin.

Q: Does this work with existing links?
A: Yes, as long as the link has amazon.com or amzn.to in it.

Q: What affiliate programs do you support?
A: All Amazon affiliate programs are supported (including the Australian store).

Q: Do I need Amazon’s Onelink or Genius for this to work?
A: No, you do not. This is a completely stand alone plugin that does not require any link localizing third parties.

Q: How does this compare to OneLink, AAWP, Genius and others?
A: Check this: https://flovidy.com/comparison-amazon-affilate-link-localizers/

Q: Do you need access to Amazon’s API?
A: No, Flovidy does not need access to their API.

Q: Will you lock me in?
A: No, we will not. You can disable or remove the plugin at any time. We do not change your amazon links. The only downside of disabling the plugin is that localizing won’t work, of course 😉

Q: Do you support shopping carts?
A: Yes, we do. You can create those by simply adding multiple amazon product urls in one line seperated by a semicolon (‘;’). E.g: https://amazon.com/dp/bklad123/;https://amazon.com/dp/23244/;https://amazon.com/dp/23423434/

Q: Does this plugin work if I don’t fill in a referral code for a different country?
A: It will not work for the countries you don’t have a referral code for.

Q: How do you make money from this?
A: This used to be a paid plugin (one time fee). Unfortunately, Amazon built OneLink and Genius has a free plan now. The costs of user acquisition are too high at this point to make a decent ROI on this, even though we believe our plugin is the best in the market. Therefore, we decided to open the plugin up to everyone. Our loss is your gain. We do not take any commission from you, we also do not charge you for using it. It’s completely free.

Q: How accurate is your location tracking?
A: We use an open IP database (GeoIP) which is a few years old now. The data in it, is still fairly accurate. Exact numbers are hard to give, but we expect to locate 90%+ correctly.

Q: Where can I ask for support?
A: We can give you limited support through email: hello@flovidy.com. Please note that this plugin is free and that it might take a few days before you get an answer. Customizations to the plugin can be completed for a fee (minimum costs is $50).

Q: How regularly will this plugin be updated?
A: We will do our best to keep it compatible with the latest WordPress version as well as new amazon affiliate stores. But we cannot promise anything.

Q: Can I have a look at the source code?
A: Yes, you can. The plugin is completely opensource. Feel free to change it however you like.

Q: Is this plugin blocked by ad blockers?
A: No, it is not. The plugin only changes the links based on the visitor’s location. It will always be a normal amazon link (with your affiliate code).

Q: Why do I need to add my bitly API key?
A: If you are not using amzn.to links on your website, you do not need to add the API key at all. We use the API key solely to get the full url behind an amzn.to links. Those shortlinks are actually bitly links, which is why we need to access their api.

I am using inbuilt Amazon onelink for geotagging but it does not include India, so Decided to try it out, I put my affiliate IDs in required flovidy settings but not directing me to India from my USA amazon Links. don't know what the problem? anyone can guide?

I had tried this plugin after I see my BestAzon plugin failing to operate on Sep 21, 2020. From my experience first hand, it's a better plugin than the last one. No more cut and don't need any api key either. Highly recommend anyone who wants a small but neat plugin for amazon link localization.

Really a great little plugin here... It redirects Amazon Affiliate links to the right store so that you get your commissions from other stores than the US. It takes 1min to set up. 1. You download the plugin and activate it. 2. Then you go to settings and choose Flovidy and put in your other store names and save. That's it! Thanks for this guys 🙂

Absolutely fantastic. Free and better than everything else, when you need just redirects. The support is super helpful, eventhough this is an abandoned plugin.

I downloaded this plugin recently as I was having issues with onelink and this has fixed my issues. I am very happy with this plugin and would recommend it to anyone having problems with linking their Amazon Affiliate tags.

I originally ran EasyAzon for localizing my links and that worked fine, but it uses a shortcode format which I wanted to move away from. I tried both Amazon's OneLink and geni.us and I saw my US sales drop while using them. Not to mention, using OneLink slowed my site down significantly and geni.us couldn't handle "add-to-cart bundle" links properly (added a second tracking tag in those links). I had kind of given up on using a link localizer when I saw some people talking about using Flovidy on Reddit. It has worked much better for me than both OneLink and geni.us. No lost sales on Amazon. I'm getting sales from foreign Amazon sites again. No speed issues. No issues with caching plugins. And, no shortcodes. It's kind of silly that people pay for the 'popular' options out there when Flovidy does the same thing (but better) for free.
