    HI!

    I've been searching for an amazon affiliate plugin for a long time and I haven't found exactly what I'm searching for.

    What I want it to do is simply paste the image of the product and, below that image, create a button that says "Buy on Amazon". That button would redirect to my affiliate link, of course.

    I want something that looks like this:

    [​IMG]

    I've installed quite a lot of plugins, but none of them gives "attractive results". I don't get any clicks with them. I wouldn't click on the links either, actually.

    Thank you! :)

    Do you have a working plugin already and just the output isnt beautiful? In that case we can modify the plugin to display a more beautiful output like in the picture.

    Or you havent got a working plugin at all?

    Using stars as ratings on an affiliate site is against Amazon's T & Cs.

    You could try the 'easyazon' plug-in as it uses Amazon's API and it's easy to display images and buttons.

    I have a few plugins that work, but they just display the usual image + price + link to amazon, just as if I had copied and pasted the html code I get directly from amazon. They work fine, but they don't look really good and don't seem to be attractive at all. I guess that's why I didn't get a single click with over 1000 unique visitors.

    I found this picture and it's just an exemple of what I'm trying to do, without the stars of course. It's just the look I want my affiliate links to have.

    Just because they do it, don't mean it's o.k with Amazon...how many also show prices or say 'available for under $100?'.

    Anyway, you can always check with live help. Or not...

    Then you can have a Wordpress or developer modify the plugin to output it according to your needs. I can do it if you want.

    I'll PM you once I have enough to invest. I'm trying to earn without spending money, just a lot of time of hard work.

    If you are using wordpress..try playing with different themes with the plug in...some themes do a shit job otther themes do a lovely job of presenting the products.

    That's the one I'm using. The only thing I can do is put links, not images. It might be because I use the free version of the plugin, I don't know.

    I think you're right, I upgraded mine so I can add images, or just links. Worth upgrading for just a few extra dollars as it's worth it

    I've checked this with Amazon and you can use star ratings as long as you specify that they're your own ratings and not Amazon's.

    Thanks for posting that. I must admit, I re-read the TOCs and saw what I wrote early wasn't factually correct (but there is an issue with stars).
