I don’t normally have time to honor product review requests, but Chris Guthrie’s Easy Azon Amazon affiliate plugin caught my attention.
If you’re an affiliate for Amazon.com, you’re probably aware of the somewhat convoluted process of creating a product affiliate link for your site.
Well, Easy Azon simplifies the process tremendously by allowing you to create and embed affiliate links into your content right from the post editor in WordPress. You don’t even have to visit Amazon.com!
Watch the video below for details…

I haven’t heard many stories of people making much money from Amazon. Would definitely be more tempted to use Clickbank as a general affiliate network but would rather pick a popular Aff. network first before choosing either one of the above.
Web Design Durban says
Seems like a good plugin but isn’t all this affiliate stuff sort of in the past? I mean, I know there’s always potential but to become an affiliate these days one should have some thorough programming know-how otherwise there’s software out there that will find your campaigns and keywords!

Thanks for an informative video. The plugin looks very interesting — especially the function to detect the country that the person is from, and send them to the appropriate Amazon website.Amazon associates is a one of the good affiliates.

David Adams says
This post has been around for at least 9 months and I am just recently seeing this. :-/
I need to get on the ball. Thanks for the post, and thanks Chris for creating this.
LOL! It’s a great plugin. 🙂
i make 10 sales in 2 day with this plugin
Is amazon affiliate program still worthwhile? I’m new to all of this but from what I’ve heard other affiliate programs are better ie. clickbank. People on forums always saying how they hardly make anything from amazon.
Amazon still works, but it’s all about volume. You need lots and lots of traffic to make worthwhile money. However, the good thing is they sell EVERYTHING so it’s often a good fallback if you can’t find an affiliate program for a product. I like Clickbank too.
How to install this plugin? please help me..
Brian Montgomery says
Thanks! Just what I need for my latest project. You rock! 😀

Very cool plugin for sure…! I’ve just recently got my Amazon affiliate program approved so I’ll be getting that soon! You know I’m constantly wowed with the creative nature of these widgets and plugins. Thanks for sharing!
I’m a newbie just wanting to get into affiliate marketing but I live in California. Is this a bad idea with the affiliate tax? Is it still possible to make money in California as a beginner in affiliate marketing?
Kevin Delaney says
It’s definitely possible for a California resident to make money as an affiliate — just not for Amazon!
Sadly, Amazon killed its affiliate program here in CA, in response to new state tax laws.
There are, however, many other programs that are still going strong.

These awesome wordpress plugin for amazon, I really want it. Thanks for your information. Lisa
Hi…on your recommendation I just purchases the Amazon plug in and am getting set up. I wanted so see if you may recommend some type of program for niche marketing? Thanks…
Thanks for showing this plugin. I’m planning to start a blog about pottery and there are many, many good books about worldwide pottery available on amazon. so, i think i will try to use this plugin.
Currently, I am using this plugin for my news website, to recommend the good products to readers.
That’s a pretty cool plugin.
Sheila J. Hill says
Hello Lisa…It looks like a great plugin…I’m going to try this one out…Thanks for the post!!
tent reviews says
Not having to go to amazon to get the links is a great times aver with this plugin
Hi Lisa, Interesting plugin. I’ve always been a bit put off amazons affiliate program because it’s always so fiddly. I’ll take a look at this.
I think such plugin are now getting necessary because readers always move around mouse on links and see how big they are and if they find it like affiliates links or numerical then most of them go away. It better to customize them with such plugin and display them as unique ones.
Thanks for sharing nice video…
Teresa Williams says
Thanks for bringing this plugin to my attention. It will certainly speed up the process of linking to products, which can take time and is prone to errors if you don’t cut and paste correctly (as I do).
look like great plug in…i have to try add this plug in…who my be it wil increase my earning….thanks for share
minka kelly says
Wow, it’s a good help for me to increase my earning as affiliate of Amazon. I will try to add this plugin to my blog soon. Thank you.
Ashik Thomson says
Your blog really acts as a turning point for me.In one way or other helps me to develop my blog.A thing that I first heard of making money online from your report perfect site guide.Now I thankfull to you and this article also helped me a lot.
Fred Miller says
I always get fired up when I check out your blog, Lisa. I’m still doing lots of humor blogging which is not so product oriented, but I have two other blogs warming up that will recommend products.
I love these WordPress plug-in guys. Glad Chris got this out through you. Glad somebody mentioned Andy Bailey (CommentLuv). He’s one of the finest people I’ve ever met.
It’s a shame so many states are anti affiliate. I cannot use amazon for promotions unless i leave Rhode Island 😛
Yes and unfortunately that affiliate tax bill continues to affect more and more states.
Idaho Falls Plumbing says
Thanks for sharing. I will try to install this and see how it works 🙂
Evan Griffin says
Thank you for posting this blog..It can help a lot because we don’t have to visit Amazon.com for embedding affiliate links…
Kevin Delaney says
Hi, Lisa: Thanks for an informative video. The plugin looks very interesting — especially the function to detect the country that the person is from, and send them to the appropriate Amazon website.
How customizable is the plugin? I would like to include images of books & just their titles in my sidebar. I don’t want all the additional information (regular price, Amazon price, etc.).
Also, is it possible to adjust the size of the product images?
Hopefully Chris will come back to confirm/explain, but as far as I see it, you must display the product links “as is”. The code does not produce any variables that allow you to edit images, price, etc. That would be nice though!
Kevin Delaney says
Thanks, Lisa. Unfortunately, I live in California, and Amazon just killed all affiliate accounts here due to the new online tax that’s just been passed!
Hey Kevin Iran across this article the other day about how Cali Amazon Asso. can get their accounts back…i know its 4 months later but hopefully this might could help you! *Be sure to read the whole blog post*
I think that Chris’s plugin can be valuable when a person is trying to promote Amazon products in different countries as it could help save time.
Chris Guthrie says
Thanks for posting the review and I agree – you’ll get a lot more value out of using it on a product oriented website. That’s the primary use for the plugin and the main reason why I wanted to create this pluin was to just make the process a whole lot faster for me on my Amazon sites.
Great video review 🙂
Thanks Lisa for sharing this review.
I heard about Chris on other blogs and that he did quite well as an Amazon affiliate for notebooks. He certainly knows Amazon Associate program intricacies.
The plugin seems to work nicely on your Thesis themed blog Lisa. I will certainly check it out.
Chris Guthrie says
Yes I sold one of my bigger Amazon focused websites in a deal worth six figures last year and a lot of the things I found helped me make more money with Amazon I incorporated into this plugin.
Great to have you here replying to comments.
I just wanted to let you know I really enjoyed your interview by Yaro Starack. You gave lots of useful tips on how to succeed with Amazon affiliate progam.
All the best with your plugin!
Hey Lisa, I first heard about Easy Azon from Andy Bailey of CommentLuv and he did a similar video tutorial. I’m an Amazon Affiliate but I haven’t implemented any strategies for selling Amazon products on my blog. However, Andy made a great point of how using this plugin could save money for someone like me who gets images from iStock, all the time.
I also think this would be great for my daughter to use on her fashion blog.
Chris Guthrie says
Yes, the biggest suggestion I make to people trying to make money with Amazon is to really push the products on websites that are more product oriented in nature.
Marketing blogs, personal blogs etc. don’t work as well with Amazon but product focused websites perform a lot better (especially review ones)
