EasyAzon is a solid Amazon affiliate WordPress plugin. I’ve used it on a handful of websites I have developed. If you develop Amazon affiliate websites it’s certainly a must have WordPress plugin.
There are a ton of WordPress Amazon affiliate plugins out there to choose from. Amazon has one of the best affiliate programs online. So, if you are developing Amazon affiliate sites it’s a matter of time before you might find yourself interested in purchasing a premium Amazon plugin. Don’t get me wrong there is a free version of EasyAzon which does come with some limitations. But, in this EasyAzon review, I am going to be discussing the premium version of this plugin.
This plugin has been referred to as EasyAzon 4 so if you see it referred to as that it’s the same plugin.
Here is a short video I made on the WordPress plugin:

Anyone that is an Amazon affiliate is who EasyAzon is for. If you’re a web designer, affiliate marketer, entrepreneur there is a good chance that you’re probably looking for a plugin that makes it easy to insert Amazon affiliate links on your website. Free Amazon plugins are great, but this premium one has a lot of advanced features that make monetizing a WordPress website much easier.
Once you download and activate the EasyAzon plugin you can now start using this plugin on your WordPress website.
Sign Up For Amazon Affiliate Account
I do need to mention that you need to sign up for an Amazon Associates account. It doesn’t hurt to have some knowledge of how the Amazon affiliate program works. It really is one of the best affiliate programs to get in, though. Basically, you’re going to need to verify your Amazon account. You’re going to want to enter your “Access Key ID” and “Secret Access Key”.
Here is a quick video walkthrough link that shows you all the steps you’re going to need with EasyAzon.
Next, you’re going to want to put in your tracking code from your Amazon affiliate account. An example of this will be something like xxxxxxxxx-20. To find this you’re going to click on your email address in the top right. Then, click on “Managed your tracking ID’s.”.
Always keep your tracking ID’s separate for every website you create. This will make it easy for you to show which sites are making you Amazon affiliate commissions.
In the free version, you can only use one tracking ID. For instance, you can only use the “United States” tracking ID. Therefore, if you have visitors from other countries you could also add in their unique tracking ID.
Here is a list of the countries you can add tracking to:
- United States.
- United Kingdom.
The search tab will allow you to specify which country you want to use as your default. For me, I use the United States because I am located in the United States and develop websites that appeal to people in the country I live in.
Here you can set up how you want your defaults to be configured. Meaning, when we insert our affiliate links on our website these will be our default settings.
You can adjust the following:
- Open in new window.
- No follow your links.
- Add to cart. This makes the cookie 89 days when they add the product to their cart. The standard affiliate link is a 24-hour cookie.
- Can cloak affiliate links.
- Product popups.
- Info block temples (images and prices) or (attributes).
You might want to join Amazon’s affiliate program that are in different countries. For instance, if you check your Google Analytics and notice that you’re getting a lot of clicks from the United Kingdom. You can easily join Amazon’s UK affiliate program and put in your tracking code for the correct country.
Inserting EasyAzon Into Our Post or Pages
There is an icon within your WordPress post or pages. It will show a little EasyAzon button. When you click on it there will be a box that pops up. This box will allow you to search for products on Amazon.
Then, you can insert the products into your website as a:
- Text link. This is a text link that you can use for your affiliate links. It’s the only option available for the free version.
- Image Link. This is an image link. It allows you to use an image link. It can be various sizes and pulls the images straight from Amazon. Therefore, you don’t have to download any images and upload them to your WordPress media file. This is a huge time saver. Not to mention it links directly to the Amazon affiliate product.
- CTA Link. This is a “call to action” button. There are various styles you can choose from. It’s an Amazon button with a “buy it now” button.
- Info Box. This is a box with the product, title, and the prices of the product on Amazon.
After you insert any of the 4 mentioned Amazon affiliate links the plugin will insert a shortcode that looks something like the above.
One thing I don’t like about EasyAzon is popups don’t look good on many links I have created. Therefore, I just go to my default settings and disable them. This has been a known issue which many people have addressed on various websites.
Add To Cart
In theory, the “add to cart” option sounds like a great idea. The cookie for Amazon affiliate commissions is a 24-hour cookie. Meaning that if someone clicks on your link and completes a purchase you will get a sale for it.
The add to cart feature adds it directly to their cart and you will get credit for a sale if they purchase the product in the next 89 days. This is a good idea, but lots of people like to go to the product page and read a little more about it rather than just adding it to their cart and buying the product.
I don’t typically use this feature for Amazon affiliate websites I create, though.
So, the below screenshot is an example of how EasyAzon will look if you’re using the info box:
As you can see it seamlessly inserts my affiliate product in my post.
Let’s face it sometimes we just need help with plugins that we purchase.
EasyAzon does have customer support for their plugin. All EasyAzon’s customer support is handled through a support ticket. I have only contacted them a couple times. Typically, it does take 12 hours or so to get a response from them.
However, there are other similar reviews on the internet that show concerns with EasyAzon’s customer support. For instance, the popup that doesn’t work correctly on some WordPress themes. People have stated that support doesn’t really help much in resolving that bug. Typically, just tells you to switch themes or doesn’t really assist you.
From my experience with the support, I have had good experiences with them. They always help troubleshoot my problems and even have a knowledge-base where you can get your answers resolved.

Now comes the time when you want to know what is the price of this WordPress plugin.
One thing that has always been a pain in the web development world is monthly or yearly prices. As a web designer, affiliate marketer, entrepreneur, or whatever you like to call yourself. The less monthly or yearly expenses you need to pay the better.
Thankfully, EasyAzon does have a one-time payment price. Meaning, you pay for the WordPress plugin once and then you never have to pay for it again. This makes this WordPress plugin very appealing to me. I’m in the business of buying and selling websites. So, a plugin that I can install and use on as many websites as I want is a huge plus.
The above screenshot shows you the prices of EasyAzon. The $67 version lets you install it on as many websites as you want. Therefore, I would highly recommend you pay the extra $20.
Do I recommend EasyAzon? Yes. I like how easy the plugin is to use. It’s a huge time saver and adding Amazon affiliate links in manually would be a tedious task without this plugin.
It’s a very easy plugin that you can easily insert your tracking ID (the new owner can put their tracking in quickly) If you ever decide to sell the website it’s developed with a GPL license. Which means you can freely distribute it on other websites for sale. This will help increase the value of a website you are selling.
You don’t ever have to leave your WordPress dashboard to look for new products and can easily localize your affiliate links. They go to the correct Amazon website depending on the country they are in.
There are a couple of quirks like the popup features doesn’t work correctly with some WordPress themes. I don’t use the “add to cart” feature, and customer support can sometimes take a bit to reply to your questions.
