Affiliate Product Ads for Amazon

Description

Generate passive income from your WordPress posts by automatically displaying Amazon Product ads on posts with Amazon Affiliate links.

This plugin automatically detects posts that have links to Amazon in them already and adds an Amazon Product Ads display block at the bottom of the post with other related/suggested product ads. With this feature enabled, Amazon’s search algorithm is used to detect which products are best related to this post and displays them for your visitors to discover.

When the visitor clicks on one of these display ads and makes a purchase in Amazon, you will earn affiliate commission for sending that visitor to Amazon. (subject to Amazon terms and conditions)

The product ads are generated on the server-side and are part of the page – they are not loaded after the page loads in JavaScript. This method prevents most ad-blockers from removing the product ads.

Additionally, this plugin can display a disclaimer on posts that contain Amazon links as well as a site-wide disclaimer in the footer. A disclaimer message is required by the United States FTC and Amazon Affiliates when displaying recommended product links for which you will be financially compensated.

Included Features

Each feature can be configured and customized to the needs of your site.

  • Auto-add Amazon product display ads at the bottom of any post containing an amzn.to URL in it
  • Auto-add a disclaimer at the bottom of any post containing an amzn.to URL in it
  • Auto-add a disclaimer in the footer of all pages on the website

Requirements

NOTE: This plugin does require that you are a registered Amazon Affiliate. It utilizes the Amazon Product Advertising API 5.0 to obtain product ad information. This does require approval and acceptance by Amazon to be able to use the Product Advertising API. More Information from Amazon

Disclaimer

This plugin will make backend API calls to external 3rd party of Amazon’s servers at https://webservices.amazon.com/paapi5/* and load images on the frontend via https://m.media-amazon.com/images/* These 3rd party resources are required to display the Amazon Product Ads on your site.

Essentially yes. This plugin is a way to automatically generate SiteStripe URLs and place them on a WordPress site. Commission is earned from Amazon the same way that SiteStripe is earned.

Are there any limits or restrictions?

Which posts will automatically display Amazon Product Ads?

Any post that already contains a link to Amazon in it will get automatic ads. You have already indicated that the post has a promoted product from Amazon, thus this plugin will work to supplement that link with additional product ads generated based on what the Amazon search algorithm determines is popular at this time.

This plugin will first look for any tags on the post and use those as the keywords as the basis for the Amazon search criteria. If no tags are set for the post then the post title is used.

It seems like I’m the first to rate this plugin, so it’s 5 stars because it does exactly what it does.However, here are some tips:1- The plugin should have positioning options within the post. For example, before the content, or shortcode, to insert anywhere in the content2- It is incompatible with Elementor and GreenShift, because it invades space and shows the CSS of these two plugins. This needs to be corrected.3- You could create other Gutenberg blocks, for each step within the content. That’s it, your plugin is very good and has a lot of future. It’s a lightweight plugin, does exactly what it promises and is very easy for all users. You are to be congratulated.
