WEBFI-WordPress-How to Build An Amazon Affiliate Store Using WordPress

Are you looking to create an Amazon affiliate store with WordPress? An Amazon affiliate store allows you to sell products from as an affiliate and earn a commission on each sale. This allows you to focus on writing your content and driving traffic to your site. In this article, we’ll show you how to build an amazon affiliate store using WordPress.

This video is sponsored by MonsterInsights, a powerful plugin to help you use your analytics information to the fullest, take a look at MonsterInsights here:

For getting started, we would recommend hosting your site if you don’t have a host already with BlueHost. You can sign up with our affiliate link below, using this link will reward us for referring you to BlueHost who we would normally recommend to most beginners.

Once you have the site installed, you can install and activate the WooCommerce plugin and it will bring up the setup wizard. If you are planning to sell your own products on your site we would recommend going through the steps in this wizard but for this guide, we will assume there are no personal products and skip the setup wizard.

Next, you will want to go to Amazon’s affiliate site and click the join for free button, it will use your current Amazon account or you will have the option to create an amazon account if you do not have one already. Once you fill out the application Amazon will review your application and if approved you will have 180 days to get 3 sales otherwise, you would be removed from the program. If it is not active already, we would recommend enabling your Amazon toolbar when viewing Amazon as it is an easy way to grab your affiliate link from the product page itself rather than searching somewhere else for it.

We can now go back to your WooCommerce site and start setting up products. If you go under Products, Add New you can add a title for the product and change the product data to External/Affiliate product. Add the product URL and it will add a link to the product on Amazon. Amazon currently does not allow you to copy the content or images used on the product page, you would need to either access them using an API or go to the manufacturer’s site to gather the information.

As you set up your store, if you are interested in tracking your conversions, we would recommend taking a look at MonsterInsights. It is a powerful tool for tracking not only your sales but also your site’s analytics.

    Question: if you create an amazon affiliate link for a product on the uk amazon site how do people in the USA purchase the product on the US amazon site through your affiliate link? does it have to be another link based for the US market and in which case how do you add multiple amazon links to your website for the same product? sorry i hope that makes sense?

They have already assigned your associates ID based on the website info you gave but now you need to use a different website for your amazon business. Just wondering. Thanks

    This is great. To learn what I need I have to look at a feministical lesbianoid man-hating construction worker. Ho, wait, there's a bunch of great better videos, with better information, pretty smart women and friendly male teachers. Bye Bye.

    Great video, thank you! Is there a video which explains how to set up a shopfront? I mean, if I follow the above a dozen times, so I have 12 items to sell (and 12 product pages), how can I get another page that shows the customer all 12 items, with a dozen links, to each product page? Thank you! xxx
