Background

I’ve been running an Amazon affiliate site with this plugin for nearly a year now. I noticed recenlty that it was generating around $100 /month in commissions so I thought it was time to share it. Remember, you will need to a little promotion in order to get your site some traffic. I’ve included some video links below on how you can do this.

    2.When I click the item in the menu like Roses,Books etc,it’s display only one item as it happened when we added featured items and then you changed “”,it was displaying 4 items,likewise where to make the changes for the menu items product listing.

    3.In your video,the Add to cart is very neat only when you hover only its displaying and the images are bit small,but in mine the description is too large icons and the add to cart is not displayed properly.Where to make the changes.

  2. Alex,

    Your Kingdom Store video sold me, yet, I’m in a quandary and I hope you can help me out here.

    I have been looking for months for the best Amazon Affiliate theme and plugin and as I said, your Kingdom Store sold me. Yet, I really like the Total Theme/Front-end & Back-end page builder.

    I could buy the Bundle Packet (Kingdom Store, Woozone, Discount Finder, and Woozone Contextual) and use the free Beaver Builder or forget the Front-end and use PageBuilder, but I prefer Total Theme. But is the Total Theme as good of a store as the Kingdom Theme for a store?

    Anyway, I can’t afford the Bundle Packet and Total Theme at this time, so I am hoping that you can help me out here. Thanks.

    Also, is there a money back guarantee on any products sold by Envato? I like to purchase all of my things from one store and I really like their themes and plugins, as well as the way their store is set up.

    1. Hey Curt,

      Thanks for the message.

      I’m not familiar with Total Theme, it does look good. The reason Kingdom is great is because it integrates really well with the Woozone plugin. Although it doesn’t have a page builder, it is quite easy to use.

      Hope this helps.

  3. It would be great pleasure if you can help, when I am importing products from amazon using insane mode. when I am doing check out there is difference showing in price. can I import product in my country currency.

    I am targeting local (India) when I am importing products it is showing me in dollar that I want in Rupees (INR)

  4. Hello Alex,
    I love watching your videos. I have a question if you could please guide me.
    I recently create an Amazon associate account and now I got rejected by Amazon. Because of two reasons,
    – Lack of content which is original to your site and beneficial to your visitors
    – Pages that are mainly empty when advertisement content is removed
    If not my mistake, when I look at your website you don’t have much contents either. I don’t know if got the same problem like me. Is it because I didn’t use any plugin that can import image to my website?
    Can you please give a guide on how to fix my problem? So that I can rejoin Amazon affiliate program back.
    Thanks.
    Khai

    1. Hi,

      Thanks for watching.

      I didn’t have a problem as I already had an amazon associate account when I applied.

      I suggest you setup a simple blog and apply with that URL first. Or add lots of blog content to your shop site..

      Good luck.

      -Alex

  5. Hello Alex, first of all thank you very much for your tutorial, it is the only one i found and it is very specific and complete. I wanted to know two things,:

    First: How to translate my site to spanish, i used Loco Translate and PoEdit with no success.

    When i put the new file created with Poedit in the \wordpress\wp-content\themes\kingdom\languages folder nothing really happens, even when its named xx_XX.pot

    When i use Loco Translate i save the new es_ES file (im translating to spanish), but when i refresh the website it stills in english, when i synchronize the file it rollsback to english.

    Second: How to change the Font Type and use bold and fontsize alternations, like in this website: http://cheapcablesguy.com/

    Thank you very much for such useful information

    1. Hi,

      Do you have you browser language set to Spanish? If you email me you site details i’ll be happy to take a look at the translations for you..

      To change font sizes simply add Header tags, like

      ,

      etc..

  6. Alex thanks for this awesome resource of website ou have!
    Is it possible to use Woozone – Kingdom “redirect to amazon for checkout” with another theme?

  7. Hi!
    I’ve build my site geekygiftsonline.com and it’s going great!
    Thanks for all the info, but I have a quick question. How do I make the headings (such as ‘Featured Items’, or where you had ‘Zombie Books’ etc) into links to all the products?
    Really struggling with this one. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks

  8. The Woozone bundle doesn’t contain the folder kingdom-child in the Kingdom theme. Is there a new way to make a child or could you send me the file?

  10. Hey Alex. So, I’ve been off-grid for a while, just checked my aeropressstore.com site and it appears all my store products have vanished. I did a little digging and it appears there was an issue with the Amazon Product Advertising Api being down and the WooCommerce plugin moving everything to the trash. Have you seen this issue on any of your sites? I’m looking for the best/quickest way to recover my products and get the store back to how it was.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

      1. Thanks, Alex. Nothing in my trash. Been going back and forth with the WooZone support folks for weeks now. Their updated plugin (9.0) made things even worse, so I’ll probably just start from scratch and reload everything as best I can. Off to watch your latest video now…. Cheers!

  11. Hi Alex,
