Because WordPress publishers deserve a simpler and more efficient way to connect to the world’s most powerful affiliate program – Amazon Associates.
Let’s Get Started!
Our goal from the very beginning was to create the most powerful WordPress plugin for inserting Amazon affiliate links – while at the same time making it the most simple to understand and use. We want EVERY WordPress user – even total beginners – to feel comfortable and confident using AmaLinks Pro. Here are step-by-step instructions for getting started…
- You must be using a self-hosted version of WordPress (not wordpress.com)
- Your site must be running on PHP 7.0 or higher (check with your host)
- You must have an approved Amazon Associates account
- You must be signed up for, and have access to, the Amazon Product Advertising API.
Step 1 – Download, Install & Activate
Table Builder Add-on Setup
Please note: IF you purchased a plan that includes the Table Builder Add-on – you must insert and activate a separate license key. You can find that license key in the receipt email that you received at time of purchase or on your account page.
The image below shows the two different places for inserting the separate license keys. Just click on the AmaLinks Pro link in your WordPress menu to access this page.
Step 2 – Insert Amazon API Credentials and Other Settings

Update: New Simple Shortcode Option for Showcase Boxes
With AmaLinks Pro version 1.4.4 (or later) – you can now insert a Showcase Box by copy & pasting a short and simple shortcode and manually replace the ASIN in that shortcode with whichever product ASIN you wish to promote. Click here to see full details and instructions…
