    I've been reading up around this forum and the web about what's the best plugin for building an Amazon affiliate store with the least amount of draw backs, particularly Prosociate and WooZone, but there seems to be no clear cut answer as to which one is really worth the money.

    I've download cracked versions of both plugins to test and had problems with WooZone not importing products with variations well and also sometimes not importing product images at all.

    I've tested Prosociate and had zero problems with importing products with variations or missing images. However, I've read a lot complaints about how Prosociate's support is horrible and their plugin also doesn't have a content spinner which means every item imported to your website contains the same dup content tons of other people have on their websites. Then again, spun content won't take your far if not done correctly either, so...

    Should I buy either of these plugins or something else? What's worked well for some of you?

    I have been trying to set up a store with WooZone and hitting the same roadblock as you. Unless you are setting up a store that is selling single "simple" products, I would stay away from WooZone. Trying to get it to import sizes and variations, is a nightmare. I have never used Prosociate, so I cant speak for that one.

    Best of luck.

    I fully recommend building your own. I have but it's not WordPress and it's baked right into a huge app I've been building over the last year. Trouble is, it's hard to stop so now I've got a universal interface to pull products from Amazon, awin, affilinet, cj & Rakuten. If you chose this route and need any help let me know

    The best place to start is with the product api documentation at https://affiliate-program.amazon.co.uk/gp/advertising/api/detail/main.html - that will explain what these adding are doing and how they do it. In brief, my app has several fields for initial category population 'browsenode', 'search queries', 'must have in title' and 'must not have in title' the last three are arrays so carry multiple values. First I search the browse node, then I run search queries. Tie them all together and run my filters. I run 379 categories and get almost completely relevant results for each. Manually picking products is even easier and the api will return similar products. I pull around 15-20k products per run per region over 4-6 hours

    I can't be a great deal more specific but hopefully this helps a little.

    Since a new owner took over prosociate the support has been near non existant, as for the spun content issue you can manually change the description, or copy it into a spinner and add it that way but mass spinning lots of descriptions you can't. It could be time consuming if you intend to have thousands of products, if you only want a few then you could do it to make them unique

    This is for anyone that is considering WooZone or any other products from the developers of WooZone. Do yourself a favor and find a different plugin. Even though I have sites that use this plugin I believe it is in my best interest to find a different plugin for my next site. The developers of WooZone are unreliable.

    I agree, Woozone sucks. And it also stinks that it's one of the top 3 plugins that you see recommended everywhere for Amazon Affiliates. If you're looking for an Amazon plugin that syncs prices, there's not anything I've found that does these things quickly and easily:

    EasyAzon 4 is another one you hear mentioned. It usually works, but I've been starting to have issues with it. Also, I haven't figured out how to resize the CTA and inevitably, my site's color scheme and EasyAzon will always not work together.

    Content-egg is a newer affiliate plugin, it has a lot of potential, but it's funny with items sometimes. You can say put ASIN 423235 here and then 345446 there. Instead, it put's the first product you pulled from Amazon here, the 2nd over there.


    WPmarketertools.com has some interesting looking plugins, but I've only been able to find a few of them. I had been playing with I Want This... But I pulled it because it didn't quite do what I want.


    Product Style from Ryan Stevenson is what I'm using right now. It had a bunch of potential, but it doesn't quite do what I want it to do. The first plugin that I've seen that's encoded, so you can't even adjust it's CSS. Also, the plugin doesn't work quite right. The joys of cracked software.

    Has anyone used AzonAuthority? I believe it appears to be better than Prosociate, but would like a review from current users.
