It's easy to setup this plugin, because there is a lot of explanation at the single data fields to read.
If I make my first money with this plugin I'll donate to the developer. It's great to use it for free!
It's almost like magic. Pull up a product on Amazon, get the ASIN (or ISBN, they are equivalent as far as this plugin is concerned) from the "Product Details" area of the Amazon product, then put that number into a shortcode to display the product you'd like to make commission off of.
Setting this up (as the author clearly states) is not a trivial process, but it's worth it.
Do your homework, follow the very good instructions provided within the plugin (
Amazon Product >> Shortcode Usage from within your admin area), play with it, then watch how well this thing works.
The really cool thing is that almost every part of the output can be styled via CSS. My minor complaint is the use of
!important tags (why, when each element is specific to this plugin?) but it's not worth taking off a star.
You can specify *any* attribute of the Amazon product to display via the
[amazon-elements] shortcode. Quite potent.
This plugin has been around for a while. It continues to get better and better. This is a CHEAP way to monetize your site. Give the guy (Mr. Fischer?) a coffee donation if you have a heart or a soul.
Notice that the only 1-star review is from someone who could not follow instructions.
I have used this plugin for years and have made a small but steady income from its use. I love its flexibility. The plugin is well coded and the developer responds quickly ( I was fortunate enough to catch him on the day before an upgrade, and he included my request in his release.) seriously awesome.
Fantastic plugin - Highly recommended!
Had a snag after installation, but Support helped me through it within MINUTES! Awesome service :)
best Amazon Plugin
I've been using this plugin since 2013. With a little twists on amazon-product-in-a-post.php & rss it works beautifully. Five stars!
This was great. Work even when ASIN is the results of wp-types field.
I've only just started using this plugin and got caught by a carriage return at the end of my "secret key" - help file is great and I'm please with how my new bookstore is looking.
But I got a bit busy. Either way, this is a great plugin.
All of the data you need about a product can be input to a post easily with this plugin. The shortcode takes a bit of figuring out, but it's not too hard, and in no time you'll have a format you like and easily be able to put plug Amazon product codes in to have it show up in your posts.
The plugin author even helped me out over the holidays. Amazing service, and quality.
Thank you for making this plugin! Definitely recommend.
This works great. I initially had a problem with some of the products not displaying but the developer was extremely helpful and sorted it out for me. Highly recommended plugin.
