Amazon Related Products WordPress Plugin

Monetize your blog with real contextual Amazon products.

Description

This plugin integrates the Amazon Associates program and Amazon Web Service – Products into your blog. The products are displayed depending on your content, basically, the tags or any particular keyword added to the shortcode. The plugin uses the first three tags, but if there is nothing related to that combination, the plugin will show the products associated to the default settings.

All the products comes directly from Amazon inventory, so there is no worries about expired or broken links.

How to use

  1. I tried to use the sidebar widget and ended up with a huge whitespace at the top and had to scroll down allot to find the products, looks like some padding setting but I inspected element and tried to find it without success. Probably inheriting a setting and will have to override with an !important entry in the CSS for the plugin.

    Also, seems I need to put some keyword in the default configuration, can I just use all and leave it blank so that it uses post tags, doesnt seem to work like that but I was hoping it would, or I could put {tags} in the keyword to force it, any functionality like that possible?

  2. Found a fix for UK peeps:
    in file:
    amazon-related-products/includes/class.amzp_api_request.php

    need to change line:

    $host = “webservices.amazon.”.$this->region;

    to

    if($this->region==”uk”){
    $host = “webservices.amazon.co.uk”;
    }else{
    $host = “webservices.amazon.”.$this->region;
    }

        1. Hi thank you for this great plugin. I am experiencing same issue as the others above (products stopped showing) and I am eagerly awaiting the promised update of the plugin. Thanks!
