    Hi all.

    Suppose I have a WP blog and I want to fill it with many articles from Amazon.

    I want to feed it a list of Amazon ASINs or URLs, and have it fetch all the texts and images automatically. I also want it to generate an affiliate link automatically by using my affiliate ID. Since there will be thousands of products, ideally I want it to be a one click process.

    Any tools out there that does this properly now?

    You need a custom solution, so you're probably better of posting to the hire a freelancer or want to buy sections.

    Thanks for the answer. I seriously hope you are wrong though :)
    There seems to be a niche in the market here for plugin builders. I guess a lot of people would benefit from such a tool.

    That's a pretty interesting idea. If I had a bit more time I'd have a crack at building one.

    Without getting someone to code it for you, I don't think you'll get a 1-click solution though. If you're any good at writing scripts it's possible to do it with a little bit of leg work.

    I could do something in iMacros (the real one, not the FF plugin). It would not be too stable though. And it would still take some work. Yeah, time is what is lacking.
