The site you'll be making allows you to own a mini ecommerce affiliate website with a Woocommerce powered shopping cart. When your visitor goes through the checkout they are seamlessly redirected to Amazon to make their purchase. With a 90 day cookie, any purchase made within this time will earn you a commission! If you don't fancy a checkout and just want direct links, you can do that too.

  1. Hello, I am following your video to set up an Amazon Affiliate page. I got into a little of trouble because the Footer Content disappear from the home page (I am pretty sure I did something wrong)
    Is there any way I can make it show in the homepage again?
    Thank you in advance

  2. Hi Alex I am in the middle of creating a website with the help of your excellent tutorial. One thing I was slightly worried about is the AWS sign up. For this I had to submit my credit card details. It says it is free for a year but after a year will I incur any charges that you know of.

      I don’t think so. They need the credit card incase you use other services. I believe request to the advertising API are free.

  3. Why is my homepage showing the entire shortcode instead of just “Feature Product”?

    This is what it’s on my homepage:

      1. was this figured out? I’m having the same issue and can’t seem to resolve it…

  5. Hi Alex

    Like a a lot of things on the web, I found your site randomly. Did not expect to watch a full 2 hours – but it was that good!

    I could not decide if I wanted to spend on theme – like everyone else, I have downloaded and bought a bunch already. But I decided it was worth the purchase (through your affiliate link) of both the theme and the plugin. Happy to send a few dollars your way for all the instruction.

    You make it dead simple to get the shop up and running and so rather than messing about with another theme, I figured my time was worth it to just follow along and get it done once and for all.

    I will post my site when it’s done. Thanks for the kick that I needed to get my site monetized.

  6. Hello
    I’m in the process of setting up my website. But experiencing a HUGE problem. Now I was able to upload my products. But when it comes to choosing anoption, nothing highlights making it impossible to sync with Amazon. If you by any chance get this message, much assistance is greatly need. Thank you

  7. Awesome tutorial. I was able to follow along after I installed. Wish I found you before getting the plug-in. I already had another theme and didn’t want to go through all of the trouble with a whole new theme. Your instructions were spot on, I think I’ll go back and edit so it looks a little better. Still have to figure out how to get the product categories to appear on shop page but overall, very simple thanks to your tutorial.

    Please have a look and let me know what you think at

  8. Hi Alex @WP Eagle, thanks for the great videos. I am following all of your videos to start up my own. but here I am going to set up one affiliate site but the error message comes up. in this video @ 39:26 min, u r setting up the PHP memory but while I called Hostgator people they set up to 128MB to my primary and 256MB to my addon domain. but still the error message in on my dashboard. could you plz help me out on this plz? I will really appreciate on this. thanks in advance.

  9. i solved it by adding to custom css:


    its for removing the breadcrumbs or details, that shows below the menu, and its margins, finally its more appealing

  10. Hey, I keep getting an error everytime i try to sync woozone with my Amazon keys. I’ve checked the keys and everything is the same it just wont take them. Is there a certain step I am missing?

  11. Hey Alex,

    Fab stuff, thank you for sharing!

    I am thinking about getting this plugin, and I’ve been wondering whether Woozone allows the automation of product price updates, as Amazon ToS are pretty strict about displaying the correct price on the affiliate website. Do I have to run a refresh manually each time, or is there a way for me to set it up and forget about it?

    Thanks in advance,

  12. Hi alex i heard wZone has a lot of problems. The biggest is prices are not updated on website. Any suggested fix?

  13. Hi, thanks so much for this video, my question is that I can use HOMEPAGE SHORTCODES in any othes theme like Price compare WP theme

  14. Hi Alex, As this is your demo site I was wondering if you could give us a rough or average breakdown of monthly earnings for site. As we have seen it go up from scratch would be interesting to see how it performs. Cheers

  15. How do I take individual products I find on Amazon and import them? The Insane Mode is not working well for me. A lot of the prices are wrong and/or the products don’t exist when a customer checks out.

  16. Hi Alex,

    Great video tutorial! I am creating a site, however the Kingdom theme is not working correctly. It appears the CSS folder is not attached because the site looks very plain and doesn’t look like the kingdom theme at all. Could there be an error with the kingdom theme that i downloaded or am I missing something?

    Thanks for your help!

  17. I am curious why the blog posts are not showing up on the home page. I noticed on your example site it’s also not showing up. Is there something wrong with the shortcode?

  18. Hey Alex!
    I’m the big fan of your videos, keep continue these kind of knowledgeable videos. Please make more videos on SEO, Traffic Generation Methods and The Case Studies.

  20. Hi,
    I follow your video to build a affiliate website. In the homepage, I find there is no pagination of products for woocommerce featured products on the right corner of the same row. Could you show how to do this as your demo site? Thanks!

  21. hi ,
    Firstly thanks.
    I did all but blog slider now showing up at homepage at all…..
    can you help me out here ?

  22. Hi Alex,

    First of all, thank you very much for the great effort. I have tried the short code for the slider in the home page, but it doesn’t work as shown in the video, it’s a little bit glitchy.

  23. I can’t get my site to redirect to Amazon on checkout. It goes to a form instead. Any ideas?


  24. Hi Mr Cooper When i m trying to use the AWS key and the access Id For my amazon Affiliate Site Its does not take it and due to that i m not aboe to connet it to my woozone plugin please help me

  25. Hey Alex,

    started my wesbite last year but WooZone was kinda lame back them.
    Plus, my website was sooo slow and I quit because I was launching another project (drophipping).
    (Startup account on SiteGround)

    Now I have some weeks off and I’d like to fix that old website.

    I just use your affiliate link to buy the theme (you deserve it!) but still website – backend included – is super slow.
    How come? To many products? I have to change some options in WooZone?

    Thanks in advance

  26. Hey Al, thanks for the videos. They have been a great help for me to get my site up and running. I’m getting loads of visits to ItsAdventure now but struggle with speed! I have used Cloudflare for the free cache (whic helped a bit) but it only caches static URL’s. How did you apply static URL’s in BootBoutique rather than kingdom ‘?’ Versions?
    Keep up the great work. Like this site too!

  27. I believe the amazon affiliate program is shutting down in October. Maybe update the video “if” I am correct. I just spent $80 following your instructions. Before I discovered that.

  28. Hi! Alex,

    I had a blog and now I want to start an amazon affiliate shop on same domain along with blog. Can I do it?

    1. Author

      Yeah sure. Sounds like a great idea. You may need to change to a Woocommerce compatible theme if your current theme doesn’t support it.

  29. Hi Alex great website I currently have 2 websites set up with Woozone and I love it ! my question is when you have items that have been added to cart and redirects to amazon showing how long would I need to wait before sales showed up on the amazon affiliate page, I have had many items added to cart and hundreds of redirects but so far showing no sales? this is after about 3 weeks.

  30. Hii Wp great videos I am an Amazon affiliate and am using WooCommerce and WooZone. Yesterday, I uploaded my first batch of Amazon products. But none of the images show when i click products on the dashboard or even on my website . What is going wrong here and how can I correct this could you please help

    1. Author

      Hi – make sure you update to the latest version of Woozone and it should fix it for you. Just remove the current plugin and install the latest one on Codecanyon. Good luck.

  31. Hellow im David Lazaro want to see if you can help me to make a website with wordpress and plug with amazon i try to do this but i not was susefull Thanks

  34. Hi Alex I desperately need your help,

    I’m just starting my first Amazon Affiliate site. I have followed every step in your video, i’m now at the point “Welcome to WZone Setup Wizard” and it’s making me for insert Access Key ID, Secret Access Key, Your Affiliate IDs, Main Affiliate ID, Request Type and Import Location. How do I even start to look or create these key’s, and what do I fill in for the rest?


    1. Hi Alex,

      Sorry please delete my last question, i’ve just found how to get all they key info in your video.


  35. Hello! I need help with my website. I have installed the theme kingdom and as well added the plugin woocommerce amazon affliate. The problem that I’m having is with the part to run the setup wizard in woocommerce. It doesn’t appear in my setting to run the setup wizard. I tried upgrading the wordpress but nothing is happening. I also enter page and enter my e-mail address and my password of wordpress and is not reading it like if it doesn’t exist.

    Please can you help me with this? I have already invested the money and I don’t want to leave this website half way.


  36. Hi Alex, great videos! Quick question…Once I’ve imported the products using the Insane Mode I then tidy up the awful description on the products content and I also shorten the product title and permalink. Do you know if this is allowed? I concerned the products will no longer sync and receive updated prices from Amazon etc.

    Many thanks for your help in advance

  37. Thanks for the excellent video. However I have few observations on SEO. I have googled with following ‘ugg boots’ , ‘fly london boots’, ‘womans boots’, ‘woman’s boots’, ‘ugg woman boots’, ‘fly london woman boots’. In none of the searches “” appeared in first five pages. However when I search with ‘fly london boots ugg boots’, the site appeared first. Is it adequate to get sufficient affiliate traffic?

  38. I’m really confused about choosing nitch.
    because I have interest in technology, but most of the affiliate marketer suggest not to work on technology nitch.
    What should I do I can’t understand….?

    Can you please give me any suggestion……?

  39. Hi Alex,

    Thanks for this great article and shame I found about it a lot later than all the prep I have done 🙁

    I am not using your theme or plugin but some others, any chance for some feedback for my site please?


  40. Hi Alex, Just started watching. Little tip on your nameservers, if you can change them with the registrars before your signup for your hosting the resolve is 95%+ instant. Least in my experience. Looking forward in continuing your video.. Two hours plus, you’ve put a lot of time in creating this tutorial. Would like to say thanks, it’s very much appreciated sir !

  41. Nice post at the right time when I was struggling to find the information about the affiliate programs. This guide will help me a lot in the process.

  42. Hi, Can you add Woozone Bundle (selling for $70) in your “AMAZON AFFILIATE WEBSITE ESSENTIAL LINKS”. There is a slight saving by buying bundle package instead of buying Kindom theme and Woozone separately. You deserve a lot of affiliate commissions 🙂 for your great video guide.
