Amazing Amazon Affiliate WordPress Plugins

For months and months now, I have been on the hunt for a great (and free!) Amazon plugin. Mostly for my book blog but also for any posts on my other blogs that might use an Amazon Assoicate Link. Alas, my hunt continues and I will probably end up having to invest some money (gotta spend money to make money, right?).

My main goal was bigger images than the ones provided on the Amazon Sitestripe. Bonus if I can find an app that would go back and change my Amazon Associate links being as I lost my old account due to that child protection act.

Meanwhile, I have come across the following Amazon Affiliate plugins that I have considered using at one point or another. These are in no particular order as I wrote ’em up as I found ’em.

Amazon Link Engine

The Amazon Link Engine plugin is the easiest way to convert all Amazon links on your WordPress site into globalized links that work across all Amazon storefronts. This means that all clicks from your international audience are sent to the appropriate item in their own local storefront, improving conversions.

In order to make commissions, you have to sign up for a GeniusLink account. Your first 14 days are free. After that, they give you the first 1000 clicks per month free and then you pay $10 for every 10,000 clicks.

Book Widget

You can upload your book cover image (or choose it from the WordPress Media Library if you’ve already uploaded it), enter the book title, and add links to 5 separate vendors:

  • Amazon
  • Nook
  • Kobo
  • iBooks
  • Google Play Books

A widget for that book appears in your sidebar with links to all of the vendors you entered. You can add as many book widgets as you would like.

This is great if you want books in your sidebar with all of the links for your reader to buy it right beneath it. Currently, I am only approved for Amazon so this plugin is not much use to me.

Totally Booked

So you’ve got an amazing book, and you want an easy way to market it on your web site? Now you can! The TotallyBooked plugin helps you present your books to readers in a classy, appealing way, while also supporting the book buyers and local bookstores who carry your book.

Seems like a good plugin for book authors.

Daily Free Kindle Books

Each day, we choose the best free Kindle books, and the plugin on your site is automatically updated (based on the category and # of books you choose to display).

Simply enter your Amazon Affiliate ID, and all links will automatically be converted to affiliate links with your ID. Although these are free books, all other purchases by visitors will earn you money.

Cons: If you a health blogger, you are in luck as this is the only category currently being offered. 

My Book Table

MyBookTable allows you to have your own bookstore that links to online bookstores where visitors can buy the book.

MyBookTable allows you to easily make great-looking book pages. Whether you want a list of books or a individual book page, MyBookTable gives you maximum control with minimum hassle.

MyBookTable makes it easy for visitors to like and share your books on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and Google+. It also works with plugins like ShareThis.

For my needs, I would need to upgrade this plugin in order to use my affiliate links.

EasyAzon

EasyAzon is the quickest way to create Amazon affiliate links from within your WordPress post editor. You can create text affiliate links direct to any product available for sale on Amazon.com without going through the tedious steps of manually creating links from within the Amazon.com website (huge time saver).

I think that I remember using this one before but for the life of me, I can’t remember why I stopped. It comes pretty close to what I seek and I just may upgrade it when my blogs take off.

Amazo Linkenator

AmazoLinkenator will automatically (without any effort on your part) add your Amazon Affiliate code to any Amazon URLs. This will happen for pages, posts, and comments (depending on your settings below).

This plugin looks good for my needs. My only concern is that it doesn’t go back and do the older Amazon Associate Links.  I do like that if a commentor tries to be sneaky or doesn’t add a code, it will automatically append my code to the link. Nice.

Remove Amazon Links from RSS Feed

Removes all links to Amazon.com/Amzn.to in the RSS feed so you will be in compliance with Amazon’s Affiliate TOS. According to Amazon you may not use their affiliate links in any email, rss feed, etc. All the original links will still appear within a normal blog post or page.

What?? I didn’t know that we couldn’t have the links show up clickable in RSS!!! Geesh, half my clicks come from my readers clicking in the email. And I thought all of those bloggers were sending me to their website first and then to Amazon in order to increase their traffic numbers. Leave and learn, huh.

Amazon Affiliate Tag

Amazify is a very simple plugin that will edit any Amazon link in all posts to add your affiliate tag. If there is already an affiliate tag in the link, the plugin will replace it with yours.

In addition you can tell him to automatically add a nofollow attribute and/or a target=”_blank”.

You don’t need to check anymore every single Amazon links you or other writers added in your posts !

Yay! I found it!!! I am sooo in love with this plugin. So easy. Just enter my Amazon Publisher ID, then I clicked the box to make it NoFollow, clicked the box to make it open each link in a new page and I was done!! Yippee!!! I even checked old, old, old posts and the links were changed.

Book Review

Book Review saves you time when writing your reviews. No more copying and pasting or manually entering the details of a book. Instead, you provide the ISBN, and Book Review will automatically populate information like title, author, and even the cover photo for you.

If you’re interested in throwing monetization into the mix, Book Review can help with its custom links feature. Just enter the affiliate URLs for Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or any other online store, and Book Review will take care of adding the links to each of your reviews.

One of the most powerful features of Book Review is the ability to add custom fields to each of your reviews. Custom fields enable you to review movies, music, TV shows and so much more!

The tide appears to be turning on my luck. I can monetize this one. Yippee!! Plus, it can be used for more than just books. Double Yippee!!!

Amazon Product in a Post Plugin

Amazon Product In a Post Plugin is used to to quickly add a formatted Amazon Product/Item to a post or page by using just the Amazon product ASIN (also known as the ISBN-10). What can you use it for? With this plugin you can:

  • Add any Amazon product or item to an existing Post (or Page).
  • Monetize your blog posts with custom Amazon Product and add your own Reviews, descriptions or any other thing you would normally want to add to a post – and still have the Amazon product there.
  • Easily add only the items that are right for your site.
  • Add the product to the TOP of the post content, the BOTTOM of the post content, or make the post content become part of the product layout (see screenshots for examples)
  • You can add as many products as you want to any existing page/post content using a Shortcode – see Installation or FAQ page for details.

If you have an Amazon Affiliate account and you don’t think the available Amazon widgets are that great or are what you need, then this plugin might be for you.

Oh, I like this one. Although it is a bit confusing to get set up. It will be great for my free books posts as well as my Reading Order pages.

AzpmBox

AzonBox will enable you to add beautiful call to action box on your website. The pre-designed call to action box increase conversion rate up to 25%!

Hm. I added it and I’m sure that I’ll figure out a concrete way to use it. For now, I’m getting a bit tired. So, as it is almost 10 pm, I’m going to call it a night. Let me know if you find any other Amazon Associate plugins that I might like. Paid ones are fine but y’all know I like things F.R.E.E.

1 comment to Amazing Amazon Affiliate WordPress Plugins

  • Thanks for the nice words about my plugin AmazoLinkenator. I wrote it for a need that I had that wasn’t met by other ‘linking’ plugins. I wanted something that was simple and automatic – a plugin that would automatically convert any Amazon product link to add my affiliate code.

    And, as a bonus, I wanted it to change links in any content, including comments by others (or posts by others). It’s my site, so I figured I deserved any affiliate revenue.

    It is true, as you mentioned, that it doesn’t affect existing posts. But that is easily fixed by re-publishing an old post – that will “AmazoLinkenator” that old post/page.

    Again, thanks for the mention. It is free, and full-featured (no premium paid version). Available here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/amazolinkenator/ .

    Thanks…Rick.
