    Re: My new affiliate content platform

    Hi guys,

    Over the last couple of weeks, I've been working on an affiliate content widget platform. I've built it because i'm pretty tired of going to a website waffling on about a product and then find their information is out of date (ie, price increases or decreases) and they never update it. This product is aimed at resolving that.

    So far, I've got it so that the product title, price and a brief description are pulled in and updated every 30 minutes from Amazon and G2A. They are rendered in pre-made templates, with a 'plain text' option available.

    I've got it working just off of affiliate URLs so people can just copy-paste URLS straight from their affiliate portal, making it very quick to setup (which I think will be useful).

    Next steps:
    - allow custom templates (although I'm in two minds on it).
    - allow direct embedding without having to create a new widget manually.

    If you have any ideas of this, feedback or want to be a tester, let me know!

    Thanks,
    J

    Easyazon plugin does it just fine and updates automatically, so does simplyazon, what have you been looking at to get your info from? You could be wasting time doing something that has already been done and works perfectly

    Interesting, never heard of it. My data comes from API's, scrapes and a bunch of other data services and its been on the mark so far.

    I'm only charging a fraction of the price, and have designed it so that other platforms can be easily added. So far, I've got Amazon, g2a, cdkeys, affiliate window and commission junction working and looking at other portals/platforms.
