    Hi,

    After spending some time researching on BHW I have decided to have a go at making money by using Amazon and a niche Wordpress blog/website. I am looking for a tool (free or licensed) that is able to pull snippets of information about an Amazon product and insert it into my Wordpress posts.

    I have already found a plugin that allows me to insert all of the information from a product into my post but I'm actually just looking to insert certain parts. For example, I want to make my own post for Product A on my blog, and then pull the price from Amazon and display it on my website by entering the ASIN in a box somewhere when creating the new post. I then want to display the Buy button with my own Amazon Associates affiliate link embedded. Does anyone know of any plugins or licensed software that could do this for me?

    Thanks very much

    I suggest using amazon widgets that can be created from amazon's website itself. u can choose which products to display, slider or not etc etc and then put them in side bar or post or where ever u want.

    W3bN1njaX I'm not sure, I well check. Thanks.

    nabeelshams I was planning to use my own layout to display key product information, and then pull certain elements from Amazon. Nevertheless I will have a play with the widgets as these will probably be a bit less work to deal with.

    Thanks for your helpful suggestions
