Amazon Web Services Plugin. This is a content plugin for Joomla 3 which allows you to embed product information, including product images, price, rating and reviews from Amazon directly into your Joomla article. The links include your Amazon Associates ID, allowing you to earn commission for sales through your referral. This can be a great way to earn money through your Joomla articles.
The site administrator can also choose to allow authors to use their own associates id.
You can specify a particular product by its Amazon ASIN or ISBN number. Alternatively the plugin can automatically search Amazon using keywords related to your articles, to find the most suitable product.
Much of the output is customizable, for example you can choose whether or not to show ratings and reviews. The plugin handles signed Amazon requests, and allows choice of Amazon country marketplace services.
There are two ways to render the plugin in your Joomla articles: (1) by adding some simple code to embed the plugin. (2) you can simply select the section, categories or articles for which you wish to render it through the plugin manager. The plugin will then conduct a keyword search of the Amazon site using your article metatags, and append the product information to your articles
- compatible with Joomla 3
- The plugin includes templating system that allows for template overriding of the plugin output
- translateable: the plugin uses language .ini files, plus many of the output labels can be set as parameters
