Introduction

Amazon, Affiliate Advertising, Ads & Affiliates, Content Links, Affiliate Systems

This content plugin allows you to embed product information and reviews and links from the Amazon Product Advertising API. A simple short-code allows you to easily insert Amazon products directly into your Joomla articles, or into any other extension articles that support Joomla content plugins: this includes Easy Blog and K2.

This is the commercial version of the plugin and includes lots of features:-

  • search the Amazon database directly from the Joomla editor, using an editor button which automatically inserts the short code for you
  • it will work with any of these Amazon country sites: amazon.com, amazon.de, amazon.co.uk, amazon.fr, amazon.it, amazon.es, amazon.co.jp, amazon.ca, amazon.cn, amazon.in, amazon.com.br, amazon.com.mx
  • show results from more than one country
  • embed single products or the results of Amazon searches
  • refine searches by search index, author, title, keywords, power searches for books
  • use tracking ids to check which links or authors are generating sales
  • a choice of layouts for the output
  • also the plugin output can be overriden using template overrides
  • short code parameters allow you to further customise output
  • smart caching so that the impact of Amazon throttling of responses is minimised
  • show reviews and rating
  • show Amazon attributes such as author, publisher, brand, artist, creator, actor etc
  • show a choice of prices including the list price, sale price and new and used offer prices
  • show product images and thumbnails
  • support included and bug fixes
  • updates for one year after purchase

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

More Features

  • compatible with Joomla 3 and 4
  • translateable: the plugin uses language .ini files, plus many of the output labels can be set as parameters
  • show results from more than one country

Very useful script

Functionality
I've just started to build out the functionality but what it is doing so far is excellent
Ease of use
The extension is easy to use.
Support
I needed help with a db issue - response was fast and useful. The biggest issue (aka problem) was wading through the Amazon Affiliate & AWS
Documentation
The documentation is clean and helpful.
Value for money
So far so good, If we get sales (for the client) it is excellent - but that is not a reflection of the extension.
I used this to: A client's (author) blog site placing amazon ads within blog posts.
Usually I really like to offer free informations to the users of my sites. It 's always been a dream of mine to write articles and provide the books in support of the theme that I'm dealing with. With this extension I can easily provide book resources and it's make the site richer of informations and at the same time I can earn without efforts. Fiona gives a great support, many thanks for everything.

Superb!

As a complete Joomla beginner, I found the setup of this plugin to be easy. You need to look at their FAQ's and take note of what is said there. I struggled, because I did not know enough about metatags in articles, but the support is superb!! Problem solved thanks to support. If you want something that puts Amazon sites on your page, this plugin is for you. I highly recommend this plugin. Well worth the small cash asked.

Awesome



Posted on 18 November 2010
This plugin is absolutely awesome as is the customer support. Very easy to install and get working. I installed on 2 test servers, one on the web and one local and both performed very well.

This plugin gives you the opportunity to create a custom store with amazon. Easily pick the products you would like to sale.



Customer support is AAA+ . I had a few questions and Fiona responded quickly and provided the information that was needed.





Excellent Job.
This is the extension I was looking for to help 'productize' my website. It was easy to install and easy to get working with my site. I think the biggest issue I have is getting the right 'meta tags' for the plugin to select items on Amazon. But that is my issue not a plugin issue. What I have been doing is making sure the first item in the Megatag is the ASIN & the second item is the title/author/artist/manufacturer of the product.



I would recommend getting this plugin for anyone who wants a simple way to productize their website with Amazon.
Owner's reply: Thanks for the positive feedback. Your tip about using the ASIN as a meta tag is useful - I had not thought of that myself.

If you want to target a specific product you can also use embedding code with the plugin, but it is a less convenient way to do it.

You can also restrict the product search to specific categories, eg books as a way to restrict the results. There is a bit of trial and error I have found with Amazon search.
