Amazon EasyAzon 3 Plugin Review

EasyAzon 3 Review

As promised, here is my full review of the Amazon EasyAzon 3 plugin for WordPress.  This is a premium plugin created by Chris Guthrie, who is best known for being a very successful Amazon affiliate.

He has earned over $100,000 in commissions from Amazon’s affiliate program and sold his top Amazon site in a six figure deal as well. So the software is inspired by his real world knowledge of what works.

In a nutshell, EasyAzon 3.0 allows you to provide links to Amazon products without ever leaving your WordPress dashboard.

As someone who has promoted Amazon products on multiple sites, I can attest to the fact that adding Amazon affiliate links manually is quite a tedious and time consuming process.

EasyAzon 3 also provides several other enhancements that can increase your Amazon affiliate earnings as well. I will detail the primary features in the next section.

Main Features of EasyAzon 3

  1. Create Amazon affiliate links without ever leaving your WP Dashboard; You do not have to login to your Amazon associates account at all, everything is done right from your individual posts or pages.

  2. Provides multiple styles of links; Text Links with optional product details on mouseover, Image Links with multiple size options, Call to Action boxes and Info Blocks.

  3. Built-in link localization option, which automagically provides customers country specific Amazon links; This will allow you to get commissions for sales from customers outside the US, where normally you would be missing out. All you have to do is sign-up for an Amazon associates account from relevant countries such as Amazon UK, add them to the plugin settings page and click the check box to enable that feature.

  4. Provides the “Add-To-Cart” option (90 day cookie); Providing the option to add the item to the customer’s cart gives you a full 90 days to make a sale for that item. Typical Amazon Affiliate product links provide you with a commission for anything a customer purchases, but only for a 24 hour period.

EasyAzon 3 Examples

Chris Guthrie provides the example of the Xbox One in his video demo on the sales page and since I am a big fan of the Xbox One myself, that is what I will use as well.

Here are examples of the different types of links available through the EasyAzon 3 Plugin:

Text Link: For the standard text link, you have the option of enabling product details and pricing when the customer mouses over the link. The link on the left has the product description enabled. Hover your mouse cursor over that link and you will see what I mean. The link on the right is just a standard text link.

Xbox One Console (mouseover enabled)  |  Xbox One Console (No mouseover)

Image Link: With image links, you have the option of choosing several sizes, from tiny thumbnail sizes all the way up to large.

Call to Action: Here is an example of two of the different Call to Action boxes.  The first one on the left is a smaller, lighter color that is a typical affiliate link that takes the customer to the product page.  The one on the right is a larger call to action button, with the “Add-To-Cart” option enabled. Give em a click to see how they behave differently.

 

 
Info Block: The Info Block combines all of the previous styles into one. You see a text link, image link, pricing details and a call to action button.

List Price: $499.99
Current Price: $476.00

With all of the different link styles above, you have the ability to customize the links on a individual basis or you can rely on the default settings that you choose on the plugin settings page.

For instance, you can set your defaults to add “nofollow” to all links, open all links in a new window and select No for “Add-to-Cart”. However, when you insert individual links, you have the option to either utilize your defaults for everything, or you could customize and choose Yes for “Add-To-Cart” for specific links as desired.

In that way, you have full flexibility to either make all links exactly the same, or customize them on an individual basis.

Amazon EasyAzon 3 Discount

Since I purchased the plugin through a discounted link myself, I wanted to be able to offer everyone here a discount as well.

I contacted Chris Guthrie via email and he got back to me within 24 hours and he let me know that there is a discount available, but it’s more of an unadvertised special.

That discount is a result of some introductory pricing from his product launch back in November, that he hasn’t gotten around to removing or increasing the price on.

His exact words were: “Right now that’s more of a secret discount page still and I haven’t increased the price there yet.”

I got a kick out of his response. I appreciated his quick response and his honesty. So there is a discount available right now, but no guarantee it will continue or for how long.

If you purchase EasyAzon 3 through any of my affiliate links here on this post, you will be able to install the plugin on an unlimited number of WordPress sites that you own and operate for the discounted price of $37. The regular price is $47.

The product also comes with a full 60 day money back guarantee.

Conclusion

Let me first start by saying that if you have no plans to promote Amazon products as an affiliate, this plugin is probably not for you. That said however, whether you decide to use this plugin or not, promoting Amazon products as an affiliate should be part of your niche site adventure plan. Next to regular affiliate marketing, I find it to be one of the best ways to get started making $ online.

As far as the plugin goes, once I got fully immersed in the testing of EasyAzon 3, I found that it does definitely save time, but in addition I was actually having fun in the process.

I really liked that the plugin helps to get the creative juices flowing by providing related products to promote as well. For instance, when I typed in Xbox One in the EasyAzon search box, there were several other related products to choose from such as games, controllers and battery chargers.

And they are all right there on the same page where you can grab those links as well, as shown below. Just click on the link type and it will add the shortcode right onto your post or page.

That can definitely help to bring in additional revenue.

I have the plugin installed on this site, on my Forever Affiliate site 1 and the plan for my next niche site is to create an Amazon centric site similar to aPennyShaved, which was featured on Spencer Haws Niche Pursuits site.

The idea of generating several hundred dollars per month in Amazon affiliate commissions is just too hard to pass up. I have had success promoting products on Amazon, but not in the form of a steady, recurring revenue stream. I’m hoping the EasyAzon 3 plugin can help to get me there.

Here is a tweet that I saw in my feed from Chris Guthrie from last Friday, with an EasyAzon success story:

chris-guthrie-easyazon

I’m sure those results aren’t typical and obviously he is a bit biased, but even if you could get 10% of that, you’d more than pay for the cost of the plugin.

Hopefully I’ve provided you with enough detail to help you make a more informed decision as to whether the EasyAzon 3 plugin can help you take things to the next level.

If you are interested, but still on the fence, be sure to click through to the discount sales page and check out the video from Chris Guthrie. In that 12 minute video he will detail everything we’ve gone over here, in addition to providing a step by step product demo.

If you do decide that the EasyAzon plugin is for you, you are of course under no obligation to purchase through my discount link. However, if you do I sincerely thank you ahead of time!

If you have any questions at all or would like me to provide additional details, please let me know. Also, if you happen to be interested in other tools and want me to check them out and do up a similar review, drop me a comment or email and I’ll do my best to make it happen!

Hi Chris,

Thanks for all your efforts sharing very worthwhile information! I listen to the podcast and appreciate your takes on everything. I’m here looking for your EasyAzon review, but noticed the call to action buttons above act exactly the same.. at least here in Germany. It could just be the way the link is structured, OR maybe it doesnt act the same in countries other than USA.

Just thought I’d let you know and if you can give some feedback from it. If I buy this plugin I plan on doing it through you to say thanks!

Jason

Hey Jason,

Thanks for the comment/question and kind words! I am glad you enjoy the Podcast, let me know if there are any topics you would like to see covered.

I reached out to Chris Guthrie in regards to your question about the “Add to Cart” link not functioning as expected for you in Germany. He got back to me right away and said the “Add to Cart” feature would only work in the country of origin (US in my case) if the link localization feature is enabled, which it is.

The technical reason for that is the link localization feature uses an Amazon search function, rather than linking to a specific product. So it makes sense that it cannot add a search query to your cart, only a specific product. It does work for anyone in the US in my case and it would work for anyone in Germany, in your case. Hope that helps.

Thanks ahead of time, if you do decide to make a purchase through my link and thanks for being an active member of the site!

Thanks very much for jumping on this and getting me a VERY thorough response. It’s this type of quick action that sets you apart from others in the IM space. Totally answered my question and now makes sense to me.

When I buy this I am going to do so through your link to show my support!

Thank you again Chris and all the best,

Hi. I’m new to this IM stuff, but I had heard about Easyazon. However, someone recently said it wasn’t working any more. That doesn’t appear to be the case judging by this post and the subsequent comments. Maybe I misunderstood what this person meant. Just to clarify – is Easyazon still in existence and working as intended? Many thanks.

Hey Peter,

Not sure what you read, but definitely not true. Easyazon is alive and well, has been all along.

Welcome to the site! Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

I bought the easyazon plugin. How do I put it on my site?

Hi Mary,

After you download the zip file navigate to your WordPress admin dashboard > plugins > add new > select the .zip files you downloaded > upload those files and activate the plugins

That was taken from the how to page that you can find here: http://easyazon.com/how-to/

Hope that helps!

Hi Chris, Awesome info!

Quick question. On my Amazon Affiliate site, I already have 17 pages of content with links that I got via the “long way”. I’m most interested in the potential for more money.

So a visitor would have to add the item in their cart from that popup and then buy that item within 90 days and no other product? And would it be worth it to take the time going back and ‘fixing’ all my old amazon links which would take forever. Is there an easy way to just change my existing links? Thanks!

Hey Jake,

Glad you like the info and sorry for the delay. Your comment ended up in the spam folder for some reason.

If a customer adds an item to their cart and then a week later they manually add a few other items to their order, you would still get credit for the initial item placed in the cart, but not on the other items. Make sense?

Whether it would be worth it to change all of your links to ‘add-to-cart’ links would depend on your audience. I’d suggest changing a certain percentage of your links to add-to-cart links and compare your sales before and after, over a certain period of time.

As far as an easy way to go back and change all your links, not that I know of. Of course doing so with EasyAzon would be much quicker, but if you have several hundred or more links, it would still take some time. Hope that helps!
