Amazon WordPress Plugin: How to Integrate WordPress With Amazon

In this video, you're gonna see two of the best ways to make money with your WordPress website by integrating it with Amazon When you sign up to Amazon’s affiliate program, you get a unique ID you can use to generate links, banner ads, and widgets for your site

Each time a visitor clicks on one of these links and buys something, you get a commission – it’s that simple By default, you have to generate and add links to each individual product, which can get out of hand fast That’s where the Amazon Auto Links plugin comes in This straightforward tool enables you to generate sections that link to products your audience might like, based on current Amazon rankings and the categories you choose You’ll first need to install and activate the plugin, then find the new Amazon Auto Links tab in your dashboard

After that, click on Manage Units → Add Unit by Category By ‘unit’, the plugin means an advertising section that will display particular types of items Choose a name for your new unit so you’ll recognize it later, and remember to enter your Amazon Associate ID as well The rest of the settings here are self-explanatory Make whatever selections you’d like, and be sure to keep the Auto Insert option on

When you’re done, you can click on Proceed On the next screen, you’ll need to choose the category of products you want your unit to display Once you’ve found the right entry, click on the Add Category button Keep in mind that you can add multiple categories to each unit if you’d like When you’re ready, click on Create to complete the process

Remember how we told you to keep the Auto Insert option turned on? By default, your new unit will be placed below the content on your posts and pages However, you can configure its display settings by navigating to Amazon Auto Links → Manage Auto-insert and clicking the Edit option for the unit you want to customize Look for the section called Where to Enable, which will let you choose where to display your unit If you want more control over your display settings, you can always opt to use shortcodes instead For more information on how to do that, check out the plugin’s main WordPress page for detailed instructions

To make the most out of this integration, you’ll want to have a WooCommerce store already set up After all, the goal here is to either use WordPress to drive users towards Amazon or list your products on both platforms to make more sales Let’s walk through how to use the “WP-Lister Lite for Amazon” plugin to link your WooCommerce store to Amazon As usual, you’ll need to install and activate it before getting started Once the plugin is set up, you’ll need to connect your Amazon account to your WordPress site

To do that, go to the Amazon tab in your WordPress backend, and look for the Settings → Account screen Choose which Amazon store you signed up for (Amazon US, UK, etc) and follow the instructions on your screen to complete the linking process Now move on to the Categories tab under Settings, and enable the categories you’re authorized to sell on Amazon Keep in mind that some categories require Amazon to pre-approve you, so you’ll want to avoid those for now

Once you’re happy with your settings, save them and you’re ready to go All that’s left to do now is either match your WooCommerce products to existing ones on Amazon or publish them independently if they’re not already on the platform WordPress’ versatility makes it perfect for integration with other platforms, and Amazon is no exception By using a plugin or two, you’ll be able to tap into the latter’s massive audience and use it to monetize your blog or manage sales on both channels directly from WordPress
