I don’t consider myself an affiliate marketer, I only dabble here and there, and I try to only use affiliate codes to add product links that are of value to my readers. With that said, I’ve learned of a very promising WordPress Affiliate Store Plugin that might be useful to those of you who are either budding, or professional online marketers.
So, what is this thing and what makes it so interesting? From the plugin page:
This plugin will allow You to run an Affiliate eCommerce Store filled in with thousands of affiliate partner products in a several minutes. Its No matter whats is your blog about, You may always find a list of products and import to your blog. This will increase its value (additional associated products) and bring you additional revenue from the commissions paid by affiliate partners. Install Plugin, enter Your Partner affiliate program credentials and import desirable products. Run store filled in with thousands of products attached to your Wordpress blog in a minutes.
I have downloaded and installed this plugin on one of my development installs, and I have to say, I’m impressed with the ease of use and how Volodymyr has packed in so many features into a well laid out administration area. If you’d like to see for yourself, you can sign up for a login to the demo of this plugin on his site:
There are a couple of important things to know about this plugin.
- In order to run the plugin you must have Ioncube Loader installed (available on the most of the hosting companies).
- Currently it supports 3 affiliate programs and adding more and more. Following programs are supported as of now:
- Comission Junction
- NetShops Affiliates
This last point is kind of a stickler for me as I prefer to use the Amazon Affiliate program exclusively. However, I have been in contact with Volodymyr and he has promised support for Amazon Associates as well as many other affiliate programs.
This plugin does have a price tag of $59.00 USD, but I think that’s a small price to pay, especially if you’re planning on using this on multiple niche blogs.
