    I'd like to make my own ecommerce website with Amazon affiliate program, however I have a few questions.

    First of all, I'm going to target mainly US and EU visitors. So, there is amazon.com and amazon.co.uk (along with some other EU sites).

    My question is, are those sites all the same? If I want to target US and EU people, would amazon.com do fine? Or will I have to sign up on other amazon affiliate programs as well separately?

    Also, my goal is to make an ecommerce site that looks like an actual store, which people would build a cart and only checkout will be done through Amazon. I found a plugin for this called "WooCommerce Amazon Affiliates" by "WooZone". It has thousands of sales and it seems like a nice plugin for the features it provides. Has anyone used this plugin before and could tell me if it will do the job?

    You have to signup with the eu sites separately.

    If you sign up for the Amazon UK program it will give you the option of automatically opening an account in the other 4 countries in the EU.

    Thanks a lot guys! So I guess I'll have to apply for .com and co.uk and then split up my site on us.domain.com and eu.domain.com I guess, for best results.

    As for the plugin, has anyone used this plugin? Or any other good plugins for what I'm trying to do?

    When you add Amazon.com account links everyone can buy items but only US buyers will count for you.

    UK will count only UK users.

    France, Germany, Spain, and few other countries are supported, but you have to add every link if you want to target buyers and get every commission.

    This is really hard work, so I use EasyAzon plugin for this, it'a amazing tool!

    I see their demo/tutorial (EasyAzon) but didn't find an info how the localization works, can you briefly explain it please?

    let says we are targeting mostly US people (amazon.com), then a visitor from UK visited our review post about GoPro with ASIN:B00NIYNUF2 and click the affiliate link, where will they get redirected if there is no product with the same ASIN?

    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NIYNUF2/
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00NIYNUF2
    ~ They have the same product

    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006V6YAPI/
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B006V6YAPI/
    ~ There is no product on amazon.co.uk

    Where will the UK visitor get redirected?

    Anyone are welcome to answer. Thanks

    From what I understand, Easyazon will send the user to the same Amazon 404 page you linked. The plugin doesn't dynamically find a similar item for that geo afaik. I believe the amazon cookie is still placed on the 404 page but i'm not 100% sure on that

    Hi!
    You have chosen a good niche!

    As for the plugin I'd advice you to check Xenia plugin. It allows you to add thousands of Amazon products to WordPress store quickly and easily.
    This Plugin will put your Amazon Associate Program ID in all links back to Amazon, so you get commissions for all sales referred to Amazon. Owing to the fact that Xenia plugin can generate thousands of products, you get a lot of pages on your site which get ranked on search engines with the help of so called long tail keywords.
    Good luck!))

    Too many bad reviews online. And I'm not looking for a plugin to import THOUSANDS of products. I'm trying to make a legit store.

    prosciate is the plugin for amazon stores, you can use it to build large stores or small ones. Has locale for amazon countries. It's used with woocommerce so takes on Woocommerce plugins etc. Easy to use, support forum and woo compatible. I have seen it here in the BHW downloads or you can buy it from them if you'd prefer. I have build stores with this that had well over a thousand products. It will auto update if you want also
