How to Easily Insert Amazon Affiliate Products in WordPress Posts

Sooner or later you will most likely want to post affiliate links from Amazon on your blog, considering the size of its popular affiliate program. In order to do this efficiently there are many plugins you can choose from but the most popular one is the Amazon Reloaded WordPress Plugin. This plugin makes it easy for you to include amazon affiliate products in WordPress posts without ever leaving your site.

To get started, download the Amazon Reloaded Plugin for WordPress.

Once you have activated the plugin, look under the “Settings” tab on your dashboard and select “Amazon Reloaded” from the dropdown menu. This will bring you to a setup page where you will want to enter your Amazon API Key (Access Key ID) and your Amazon Secret Key. If you don’t have these yet head over to Amazon Web Services and sign up for a FREE account (You don’t have to enter your Credit Card information to get the key). Also, if you have an Amazon Associates ID enter that as well along with the locale you want to search for items in.

Amazon Reloaded Setup

Once you have done this save your settings. Now whenever you go to the post edit page you will notice an option labeled “Amazon Reloaded” that allows you to search various indices by keyword and extract the links for your posts.

    That “Amazon Reloaded” plug-in is no longer working. I tried to upload it to my site , entered the right secret and access key but no “amazon reloaded” is found anywhere in the edit post area.

  2. Christy says:

    Hi, I don’t think this plugin is working anymore. If you look at the developer’s site, it’s not even on the list anymore:

    Anyway, I was wondering if you had another recommendation? Thanks so much for your help.

    Hi – I saw the earlier comment about this Amazon plug-in not being available for Just to check whether this is still the case. If not available on, any tips for how I add Amazon Affiliates to my blog (betterlatethanneverblog).

    Many thanks, S

  5. Marsha Evans says:

    The plugin was such a great idea, but doesn’t seem to work. I keep getting the same “incorrect credential” problem and when I googled the problem, it seems I’m not the only one.

  7. sucipto says:

    nice posting, that i fine

  8. SBlasnik says:

    I just added it to my wordpress blog but after I insert the 2 codes on the settings page I get an error message in a red box on the top of the screen:

    “Your credentials seem to be incorrect. Please check them and try again”

    I did a copy paste so do not know how to change the 2 access codes to anything else???

    I see the plug-in is not compatible with the current version of WordPress… Could this be the issue I am having???

    This would have come in so handy before Amazon cancelled all its California affiliates, myself included. :(

    • DanielJLewis says:

      @inkdork There’s word that Amazon is re-opening their California affiliates.

      • inkdork says:

        @DanielJLewis Really? That would be great because although I didn’t make a lot of money, it was a nice little chunk here and there.

    I use Amazon Product in a Post plug-in on my blog for a couple of years. Pretty happy with it as I like the way it display the Amazon ads. Been racking a couple of hundreds per month from Amazon :) wish they give better commission rate

  13. DanielJLewis says:

    I’m curious whether you heard about this from my presentation at WordCamp Louisville last week. :)

    • wpbeginner says:

      @DanielJLewis Most certainly did. There were quite a few good ones you mentioned in there. Slowly, but surely we will be covering them all here to share the information with our audience.

      • DanielJLewis says:

        @wpbeginner I’m honored! I need to get your list of commenting plugins because I’m thinking of switching away from IntenseDebate into something that seamlessly syncs with Facebook, like you were talking about.

        • wpbeginner says:

          @DanielJLewis The ones I mentioned which I like are: Livefyre, Social by CrowdFavorite and Mailchimp, and Simple Facebook Connect.The other two in that list were Intensedebate and Disqus.
