Things you’ll need

In order to setup the site there are a few things you’re going to need

  • Domain Name – (Price varys) I recommend Godaddy for domain names.
  • Website hosting – (Approx $65 for the year) I recommend hostgator. If you use the voucher code EAGLE30 you’ll get a great discount.
  • Kingdom WordPress Theme – $39 The premium theme that gives the website it’s look and feel.
  • Woozone (Wzone) – $43 The premium plugin that does all of the Amazon affiliate stuff.

  1. Can you use Woozone to checkout on the Amazaon App if they have it installed?

  2. Hi i’m new to this field(for Affiliate, for wordpress.. for everything).
    I saw your video, “How to make an AMAZON AFFILIATE WEBSITE 2018 with WordPress Woocommerce and Woozone (Wzone)”.
    Thank you for the great video.
    I think i made a mistake while buying a server, i.e. instead of taking US server, i took India server. So is i am going to face any problem while building website, by seeing your video.
    Please reply… Thank you

  3. Hi Friend, my WooZone Dashboard is not loading… please help me

    Thank you

  4. hi, im about to make my first amazon affiliate website
    do you recomend use storefront or kingston i can not move foward because i dont know what to choose

  5. Hi,
    Thanks for posting your video. I clicked your Wzone affiliated link. Hope that works.

    I am not use the Kingdom theme, so I hope this does not create issues with Wzone. I noticed after setting up WooCommerce and Wzone that I had some error messages in WordPress:
    1) You need to install default WooCommerce page: Cart Page.
    2) You need to install default WooCommerce page: Checkout Page.

    Do you address these pages. I was looking though your video, but did not see them. I did notice in your demo site that you are using a cart, but not a checkout, which makes since given the affiliate angle. Can you tell me where you talk about these pages in your video (if you do). Or, how to best address these types of errors for building an affiliate site (if you did not address this in your video).

    Also, while I know you are not part of Wzone, you do seem to have contact with them. They mentioned two things in their sales material that you might know something about. Do you know anything about the following two Wzone claims:

    Hi. Can you tell me more about 2 things:

    (1) You state in your sales material:
    Wzone claim: “You can have Amazon Products and Simple Woocommerce Products on the Store in the Same Time (we’ve made a special verification and the products don’t conflict into the Cart Checkout Page)”
    >> What does this mean? How does this work? Do you have a site demonstrating a UX for having both affiliate links and your own products on your site? I am trying to envision the checkout experience.

    (2) Wzone claim: “Make Amazon into your dropshipper.”
    >> How does this work? How does this differ than being their affiliate?

    Thanks again for making your video.

    Cheers,
    Mike
    Ps. the site URL listed below takes you to the current blog site my wife setup on Wix. I am moving it over to WP still.

  6. When I made the blog and post

    Under the read more under my post won’t work you click it but it dose nothing. Plz help me stuck at this process.

  7. Hi Alex, I’m having trouble with the plugins for the kingdom theme, I cannot import the visual composer and revolution slider plugins . the same problem occurred with woocommerce ( I get either an
    ” unpacking ” message which goes nowhere or a 500 internal server error) but i downloaded woocommerce from wordpress.org and installed it by uploading the .zip file to my file manager plugins file, however I cant seem to find a .zip file for the two missing plugins without buying and downloading them from themeforest, and to be honest I cant even find those exact plugins . I am using plesk via go daddy if that makes any difference, I have tried firefox and IE browsers, and deactivating the other plugins ,but it dosn’t make any difference. I hope you can help as Im a bit of an amateur at this. love your vids, keep up the good work

      I think Godaddy hosting is probably your problem. I would get yourself some better hosting. In the meantime if you extract Kingdom then go into the version number folder then theme -> Theme Unzipped -> Kingdom -> Plugins you’ll find the plugin ZIP files that you can manually install.
