The #1 Amazon Affiliate Product Availability Tracker plugin

Keep your Amazon affiliate website healthy and maximize revenue. Don’t leave behind old Amazon links pointing to out of stock or unavailable products.

This simple plugin will scan your website for affiliate links pointing to Amazon, extract the ASIN and check it against the Amazon API to determine if it is still in stock, and can be purchased.

Increase affiliate revenue

You may be sending traffic to products that can’t be purchased, missing sale opportunities. Fix your links and get back those sales commissions.

Keep content relevant

Finding out-of-stock products, and replacing them with newer versions, or alternatives, will keep your site’s content valid and relevant.

Product availability reports

Our plugin generates simple reports that will help you identify which posts need attention, and whose products link may no longer be in stock.

It’s time to get rid of junk links and increase revenue.

Does the plugin work with cloaked links?

On the current version the plugin only works with links containing the amazon domains and the product ASIN . If you don’t know how to find a product ASIN please check the following link:

The scanner is showing products out of stock but when I follow the link to Amazon I see they are available. What’s going on?

Lots of vendors redirect old out-of-stock products to a newer, or alternative, version. In order to check if the plugin reported a false positive you should compare the ASIN you’re linking to, and the ASIN displayed on Amazon under the Product Details section.

I’m using a shortcodes to embed my Amazon affiliate product links, will the scanner pick it up?

Yes, the plugin will scan the shortcodes output.

Does the plugin work with Woocommerce? How about custom post types? And fields?

Currently the plugin does only scan posts and pages for body content. All the custom post types and other fields won’t get scanned.

If we have products from from multiple Amazon country sites (like .com and .in), will this check availability for them?

The plugin uses your Amazon Product Advertising API to check for product availability. The requests sent to that API are determined by your affiliate’s credentials, and thus results are specific to the country.

How can I request a feature to be included in future versions of the plugin?

Feedback is always welcome, please start a thread in the plugin support forum.

This is a great plugin, all the other products I could find to check Amazon links were at least $20 per month. Only other feature I would like is the ability to scan by category instead of the entire website. Only thing I was worried about was it making too many requests through our API access, but it worked on 2 sites for me without any problems.
