Getting Started

You can start using the plugin by following these steps:

Step 1 ' Become an Associate

The Amazon Associates Program is one of the original affiliate marketing programs. Available in geographies across the globe, the Amazon Associates Program has been partnering with content creators to help them monetize their passions since 1996. To learn more about the Amazon Associates Program, please click here.

To become an Associate, create an Amazon Associates account using URL for your country:

Your Associate ID works only in the country in which you register. If you'd like to be an Associate in more than one country, please register separately for each country.

Step 2 ' Sign up for the Amazon Product Advertising API

Sign up for the Amazon Product Advertising API by following the instructions listed here. The Amazon Product Advertising API is a popular e-commerce service, powering Amazon-integrated experiences around the world, serving tens of thousands of applications and more than 1 billion API requests every day. It exposes a web-service, which allows Associates to programmatically search and look up items in the Amazon product catalog. This plugin integrates the Product Advertising API, allowing you to access Amazon.com product catalog data without requiring additional software development.

Step 3 ' Install the plugin

To install this plugin:

1. Log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

2. Click "Add new" -> "Upload Plugin". Upload the plugin you downloaded from the Envato Marketplace.

3. After installation, activate the plugin.

Step 4 ' Configure plugin settings

Use the Amazomatic Post Generator -> Main Settings screen to configure the plugin.

1. Set Access Key ID and Secret Access Key in the Settings section. These credentials are used to invoke requests to the Amazon Product Advertising API for fetching information on an item. 

2. Set default Associate ID. Associate ID is used to monitor traffic and sales from your links to Amazon.

Tip: You are recommended to create a new tracking ID in your Amazon Associates account for using it as Associate ID in the plugin.

3. Set the default Amazon marketplace based on the Amazon Associates Program for which you are registered (for example, if you've signed up for the Amazon Associates Program in UK, then your default marketplace selection should be United Kingdom) and select an appropriate template for rendering your ads.

Tip: Be careful while selecting your default associate id and marketplace combination. Make sure the associate id is valid for the selected marketplace.

4. Hit 'Save Info' and you are all set.

That's it! You're all set to start adding Amazon affiliate links to your posts using the Amazomatic plugin!

How to work with 'Random Sentence Generator'?

You can use the Random Sentence Generator by inserting list of sentences to the 'First List of Possible Sentences (%%random_sentence%%)' text field. Here, you can add full sentences, or sentences with variables. Variables are structured as: %something. A possible list of sentences can be:

You can define variables in the 'List of Possible Variables:' textfield. Here you can define values to variables, values which will be used in the random sentence forming. Variables can be defined as follows:
variable_name1 => variable_value1;variable_value2;variable_value3

variable_name2 => variable2_value1;variable2_value2;variable2_value3
You can also use variables in variable definition. Example:
noun_with_adjective => %noun;%adjective %noun
An example of variable definition:
adjective_very => %adjective;very %adjective;

adjective => clever;interesting;smart;huge;astonishing;unbelievable;nice;adorable;beautiful;elegant;fancy;glamorous;magnificent;helpful;awesome

noun_with_adjective => %noun;%adjective %noun

noun => plugin;WordPress plugin;item;ingredient;component;constituent;module;add-on;plug-in;addon;extension

nouns => plugins;WordPress plugins;items;ingredients;components;constituents;modules;add-ons;plug-ins;addons;extensions

love_it => love;adore;like;be mad for;be wild about;be nuts about;be crazy about

family => %adjective %family_members;%family_members

family_members => grandpa;brother;sister;mom;dad;grandma

sentence_ending => .;!;!!
These random sentences can be used in post titles or post content, by adding the %%random_sentence%% or %%random_sentence2%% shortcode.
