Need larger images than the default 160px images that Amazon gives you when you create an affiliate link?

Adds a tab to the WordPress media manager that allows you to get links to images from the Amazon Advertising API to use in your posts.

Part of the agreement when you sign up with Amazon for access to their Advertising API is that you will only use it for affiliate marketing their site so you will likely be linking these images to Amazon. This plugin doesn't actually create the links so you'll still need to do that.


Once activated, the Amazon Images plugin adds a tab to the media manager.

When editing a post or page click on the media manager link and then on the Amazon Images tab. There will be a field to enter the ASIN of the product you'd like images for. Enter the ASIN and your affiliate tag, if you haven't set the default in the plugin settings, and press Get Images. Through Ajax, the plugin will connect to Amazon and get the links for you.


This plugin uses the Amazon-ECS-PHP-Library to handle the SOAP requests.
