The Best WordPress Amazon Plugin

This page contains all the available Amazon plugins for WordPress — there are over 50 plugins! The plugins fall under two main categories:

I have also come across some plugins that are no longer maintained, broken, or simply bad. For the sake of completeness, I have included those too at the bottom and without a description.


Amazon Plugins for Affiliate Marketers

Actually, even though I say these plugins are for affiliate marketers, the truth is every Amazon associate who uses WordPress can benefit from them. These plugins can help you create a full Amazon associate store or simply insert Amazon products within your existing blog posts.


Compare the Best Three Amazon WordPress Plugins

If the comparison criteria seem confusing to you, check out this explanation of Amazon plugin features. If you want more details about the plugins and understand why I gave them the ratings I did, read the individual reviews for each one by clicking on the the plugin’s name.

Other Amazon WordPress plugins for affiliate marketers:

Here is another plugin for Amazon affiliates that doesn’t really differentiate itself in any special way from the better plugins above. Let me know if you think differently: Amazon Import Plugin.


Amazon Plugins for Bloggers

Unlike the plugins listed above, these aren’t intended for building a complete Amazon store (even though it is possible). The listed plugins below were made for bloggers who wish to monetize their content by displaying Amazon products alongside blog posts.

Before you jump into the list of plugins below, I want to tell you why there are so many redundant and useless copycat Amazon plugins on WordPress.org: a lot of plugin developers want to cash in on Amazon Associates program, so they employ various tactics to monetize their plugins. For example, if you forget to insert your Amazon associate ID, the plugin’s author will use his own. Or they will insert their associate ID for X% of your impressions. This attractive money-making opportunity is what draws developers to Amazon plugins. After awhile the developer may lose interest in the plugin and ditch it.

So, I have categorized the plugins here into three categories: the best, the rest, and the broken.

Note from Mizagorn
If you have not had a chance to read about it yet, I just started the process of updating this site. A list this big needs constant updates and it will take a while to complete, especially with the way these types of plugins come and go. I have made some updates to this page, but I could use your help if you feel like it!

The most important thing is that the WAA information below is no longer relevant. Unfortunately, despite its greatness, the developer pulled the plugin from the repository. I am looking for a replacement as good.

In the meantime, if you have a suggestion or you think something should be added or taken away from the listings below, please let me know in the comments! There is a reason premium plugins are the best idea. ;-)


The Best Amazon Plugins for Bloggers

These two plugins do pretty much everything you’d want from an Amazon WordPress plugin for bloggers.

WordPress-Amazon-Associate (WAA)

WAA is THE plugin for any WordPress blogger who wants to monetize his content via Amazon associates program. It can insert Amazon widgets, embed Amazon associate ID in non-affiliate links, easily link to Amazon products, provide overlay product preview when your visitor hovers over Amazon links, localize affiliate links to the relevant Amazon country, and more. Check it out!

Amazon Product In a Post (Amazon PIP)

Amazon PIP can import product data (i.e. image, description, price, rating, etc) from Amazon and display it on your blog. This is the free plugin I used in building an Amazon store. Check it out here.


The Rest of Amazon WordPress Plugins for Bloggers

Amazon Product Data Import Plugins

The following plugins import product image, price, description, etc from Amazon.com and display the data on your blog. They link back to Amazon with your affiliate link. Before using any of these plugins, I recommend that you first check out Amazon PIP. If that doesn’t suit you, then go right ahead with one of these:

These plugins scan your content for existing Amazon links that don’t have affiliate ID embedded and they embed your affiliate ID in the link. This feature already exists in the recommended WAA plugin.

Amazon Widgets Plugins

These plugins can assist you in inserting Amazon widgets in WordPress. However, I recommend that you use WAA plugin instead of these plugins.

WordPress Sidebar Amazon Ads

You can use one of the following plugins to display Amazon ads in your WordPress sidebar


Broken, Abandoned, or Simply Bad Amazon Plugins

I tried not to skip any plugin, but the ones below were either abandoned, incomplete, broken, or just bad. You can check them out if the plugins above don’t meet your requirements. With a bit of fixing and tweaking, you might get some of these to work for you:

Amazon Affiliate Link Localizer, Affiliate Easel for AmazonAmazon Showcase, Amazon Reloaded, Amazon Machine Tags, Amazon SmartLinks Widget, WP-Amazon-Carousel, Amazon Media Manager, Amazon Associate Filter, Amazon Widgets Shortcodes, Amazon Search, Price Watch for Amazon, Sortable Amazon Wishlist, WP Amazon Ads, Amazonify, Sustoo Amazon Discount Finder, Amazon Einzeltitlelinks, Amazon Context Ads, WP-Amazon-MP3-Widget, Amazon Store plugin for WordPress, Amazon Niche Store, Keral Patel Amazon, AVH Amazon, AzLite, Amazon Wishlist, Pilkster.com Amazon Plugin, Wel!Amazon Ads, Amazon Associates Wishlist, AZ-One, Amazon Book Picture from ASIN

    As amazon and WP get bigger and bigger this is a great list of amazon plugins. I am going for WP Zon Builder now thanks for your research help

    Please consider including “Amazon Product Feeder” WordPress plugin in your list. It is free and simple plugin, which pulls amazon product data using RSS feed.

    Link to plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/amazon-product-feeder/

    Thank you.

    regards,

    many many thanks for the great overview. I really love this place. You provide big big knowledge assets on a single place.

    Keep on doing like that.
    BTW – what are the updates on the Amazon-Wordpress-Plugins!?

  • April 3, 2014 at 7:12 pm

    I use only easyazon plugin to add amazon links, images and other call to action box and buttons to my sites. It is my favorite plugin for adding amazon links.
    If you want to make money from amazon affiliate program then you should try at least once this plugin.

    I have used many other free plugins but it is the best. I have written whole review of it.

    ShopperPress is not a plugin but a Theme.
    Great for physical and eigital products and to Amazon’s affiliates.
    Regards!!

    Great information ! The comprehensive review is a really a boon for those trying to locate the best Amazon store builder as otherwise we would need to spent a lot of time trying to find the best. Between Review Azon and ShopperPress which should I go for ?

  • November 12, 2013 at 4:36 am

    Thanks for the list. I have used Wp Zon Builder and found that to be pretty good.

  • October 12, 2013 at 8:44 am

    Amazing review of Amazon plugins. I have decided to use Amazon WP AmaNiche right now. Thanks for the post.

  • October 5, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    Hi. I have been trying to look at the WAA plug in which you highly recommend but it seems that it doesn’t exist any more when I click on the link.
    Which other would you recommend instead?

    Thanks.

  • August 7, 2013 at 10:41 pm

    I found that EasyAzon is pretty good for making amazon affiliate links in wordpress, works very quickly and easily, you get to search through products, or enter their ASIN then your ready to roll :D

    Hi

    I am looking at adding 2 pages on my website to sell health and fitness products and travel products what plugin can you recommend for this ? Thanks

  • June 4, 2013 at 10:49 pm

    I used WP Zon Builder for one of my website.It’s easy to install and yes it’s easy to use :)
    Just put your keyword or Amazon node and you’ll get the list of the products ;)

    Hi,
    I wanted to add this Amazon Plugin to your list: http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-amasin-the-amazon-affiliate-shop/

    It enables you to create a whole Amazon Shop on your Blog without mixing it up with your blogposts, because it delivers an own post type and much more.

    Would be happy, if you would have a look.

    Which Amazon plugin (auto-posting) (niche sites) is overall the best, #1 hands down according to you, regardless of price…..just considering available functions, ability to customize site, general aspects which are both necessary/important, help with design & ease of use without any crazy setup?
    Someone said WP Robot is best ……. But new things out all the time!

    Is Review Azon one which actually imports Real reviews from Amazon?

    Anyone used Shopper Press? Or other plugins they make? Was looking at one other day, I like that it’s managed online in their system & although not cheap, they seem like good product….just curious. ;)

    Thanks guys!

    Great blog, will be following!

    You have two categories here – “Plugins for Internet and affiliate marketers” and “Plugins for bloggers and content publishers”.

    Which would be appropriate for a “shop” section of a website that has lots of other non-WordPress content? (The “shop” section could be a directory with the entire WordPress installation contained in it, or not.)

  • October 13, 2012 at 1:08 pm

    Great review! I am just taking baby steps into the blogging world and this was very helpful. However I can’t seem to find a plug in that will just let me put a straight simple book cover into my blog linking back to my amazon assiocates account. Without a boarder, pricing ect.. Any suggestions would be great!
