Proof of purchase
Before we start, as with all my reviews, I’d like to provide my readers with evidence that I’ve actually purchased the EasyAzon 4.0 plugin, and it wasn’t just donated to me for a review.
If you’ve been following my blog for some time, you’ll know that I only purchase and review products and services that I trust and will use in my business. Here’s a copy of the PayPal payment receipt.
What is EasyAzon 4.0?
EasyAzon 4.0 is an Amazon affiliate marketing plugin that works with WordPress.
It was co-created by an entrepreneur, blogger and Amazon affiliate superstar in the name of Chris Guthrie. You may well have heard of him.
You can, of course, learn more about Chris and his entrepreneurial journey over on his blog at Upfuel.
What can you use EasyAzon 4.0 for?
You can use the EasyAzon plugin to help you increase your Amazon Affiliate commissions, however, the plugin is capable of doing much more than that as you’ll discover in this review.
EasyAzon, now in version 4.0, is an upgrade from the previous version of the plugin, EasyAzon 3.o.
I personally started using EasyAzon myself from version 4.0, so I can’t compare it with version 3.0 for you.
Installing EasyAzon 4.0
I want to quickly show you how to install this plugin into your site, especially if you’ve never used it before. Here’s what you’ll need to get started –
- A fresh copy of EasyAzon 4.0 plugin which you can find here.
- An Amazon Associate account, if you don’t have one of these, hit this link to get started with one.
- An AWS account, which I’ll explain how to get shortly.
OK first install the plugin like you would install any other WordPress plugin. Once installed simply activate it.
Once you’ve activated it, you’ll then need to create an AWS account to access your Access Key ID and Secret Access Key code. You’ll find these in your AWS account management page.
If you’re already an Amazon affiliate member, all you need to do is log in and signup for an AWS account. You’ll need to add your billing details during the process, however, you’re not charged for anything so don’t worry. If you already have an AWS account, the rest should be pretty straight forward to you.
If you get stuck at all, don’t worry. The plugin comes with clear instructions with links to access your credentials. See image below.
Right, let’s get down to business and check out some of the key features in EasyAzon 4.0!
I’ll go through each of the tabs on the settings page and briefly explain what you need to add to these areas to make the most of EasyAzon 4.o on your WordPress site.
I’ve already talked about the credentials page, so let’s move onto the Amazon Associates page.
1. Amazon Associates tab
On this page, you’ll need to provide your Amazon affiliate details.
If you’re new to all this once again, your affiliate tracking ID is usually located on the right-hand side of the screen when you log into your Amazon Associates account.
If you click on your email address to open the drop down menu, you can also access your Tracking ID’s on the Manage Your Tracking IDs page.
It will look a little something like this: xxxxxxxx-20 (Also see image below)
With the Pro version of this plugin, you can also enter multiple tracking IDs. For instance, if you’ve signed up for an Amazon Associates account in each of the other countries available, you can add them here to this page. See image below.
What does this mean?
This simply means that you’re going to be able to earn more revenue regardless of where the visitor to your site is coming from.
2. Search tab
On the search tab, you can decide which country should be used for your default search and results.
For instance, when you’re creating useful content and want to add Amazon links into one of your reviews when you run a search for a product, the default site in which the plugin will search for products will be Amazon.com, the US site.
This default setting can be changed in the Search tab to whichever country you’d like.
3. Defaults tab
Here you can make changes to how you want the plugin features to perform for you. Check out the image below and you’ll notice some useful options. For instance, you can choose to make your affiliate links No Follow, or have links open up in a new window.
4. Link localization tab
Finally, I want to briefly talk to you about the link localization feature.
This is enabled by default and is useful if you want EasyAzon to automatically change your affiliate links to match the country your visitors are viewing your website from.
So for instance, if you create an affiliate link for Amazon.com, and a UK visitor clicks on this link, they will automatically be taken to the Amazon.co.uk site. This feature can help you increasing your earning potential.
How to use EasyAzon 4.0
If you’ve been dropping Amazon affiliate links into your content manually, then you know how much time that can take up, right?
You’ve got to go to the Amazon site, log in, find links, copy the link, go back to your site to paste it into your content and all the rest of it. What a chore, right?
One of the key features of this plugin is that it gives you the ability to search for a product directly from your post editor, without having to venture off to the Amazon site to get your links.
You can drop them directly into your content from your editor, hey, you can even fetch images of the products too!
Here’s an example of how to do this.
- You write your content or product review.
- You highlight the text you want to link and click on EasyAzon tab in the post editor.
- You search and find the links you and drop them straight into your post.
Take a look at the images below, they should be self-explanatory.
Linking: When linking to a product from the search results, you have several options available. You can use a text link, an image link, a CTA link, or add an info block about the product link. See image below.
As you’ll see from the image above, you have options to change the link text, make your link No Follow and various other options. You can also choose to convert your affiliate link into a product pop-up. See image below.
Pros and cons
OK so we’ve looked at some of the key features in EasyAzon 4.0, let me share with you some of the pros and cons that I found using this plugin.
2. Simple to setup and configure with step-by-step video tutorials.
3. Powerful all-in-on solution for getting the most from your Amazon niche websites.
4. 30-Day money back guarantee when you purchase EasyAzon.
5. Save time by adding Amazon affiliate links and images directly into your content quickly, without having to leave your site.
6. Link localization means no wasted traffic, generate Amazon affiliate commissions from the traffic you get from other countries!
7. With the developer license you can create niche websites for yourself, your clients and even flip them and make even more money!
1. When you buy EasyAzon 4.0, you’re bombarded with so many upsell options before you actually get to download the product. I found that quite annoying, but that’s just me.
2. Plugin sometimes conflicts with other plugins or theme. I also found the support not to be the best at times. It’s almost like, well you bought the plugin now get on with it.
Pricing and availability
OK, so how much is EasyAzon 4.0?
Well, the developer license will currently set you back $67, whereas the Multi-site license will cost you just $47.
Price wise, I think the plugin is reasonably well priced, you do get a lot of awesome for your money, even if the customer support sucks.
This plugin is great, it’s packed full of awesome features and reasonably well priced.
The only problem I’ve found with using EasyAzon 4.0 is that sometimes it conflicts with other plugins and themes, just sometimes.
You do get a 30-day money back guarantee when you purchase, however, be aware that if you get stuck or run into any problems with the plugin, the customer support isn’t the best.
If you’re building Amazon niche websites, or want to save time adding Amazon affiliate links to your WordPress site, then this plugin is for you. For $47 it’s not a bad deal.
