The Amazon Product Advertising API is a programming interface that allows access to much of the data on products that Amazon offers for sale on its websites. It allows you to access product descriptions and images, prices and customer reviews, and to display this on your own website, with links back to the Amazon site. If a customer buys a product, you can be paid a percentage of the sale value as an affiliate.
You get access to much of the data used by Amazon such as the items for sale, customer reviews, seller reviews, as well as most of the features that you see on Amazon.com, such as finding items, displaying customer reviews, and product promotions. The Amazon API allows you to display individual products, or the results of product searches. It even allows you to display a remote shopping cart, where the cart itself is hosted on the Amazon website, but customers can add and delete items while browsing on your site, then check out and pay on the Amazon site. It is possible to create a complete web store on your site using Amazon products. This is particularly useful for merchants who sell their products mainly through Amazon, who want to establish their own web presence. It is also useful for creating specialist web stores featuring Amazon products.Add a comment

Our Amazon Shopping Cart extension for Joomla! includes a handy plugin that allows you to use an editor button to search the Amazon database directly from the Joomla! article editor. It also works with K2 articles, and any other extension that supports editor button plugins. This article explains how to use it.
To use this feature you must first make sure that the AWS Product plugin is enabled, which you do using the Joomla! plugin manager. That is all that you need to do.
Once you have enabled the plugin, if you open up the Joomla! article editor, you should see a button called "Amazon Product" at the bottom of the page. Click the thumbnail below to see a screenshot.
We are pleased to announce the release of a new extension, Affiliate Window for Joomla!, a new affiliate publishing tool for your Joomla website.
Affiliate Window is an advertising network representing many of the largest UK, USA and Canadian businesses. If you publish a website in one of these countries the network is a great way to earn extra revenue for your site through affiliate advertising.
Our Affiliate Window extension offers an easy and flexible way to integrate the network into your Joomla site. It uses the Affiliate Window ProductServe API to automatically fetch products and add them to your site. It is easily customizable, and can be used in a variety of ways:-
- You can create a complete shop;
- or list only products belonging to a particular category, such as jewellery, or electronics;
- or list only products from a chosen retailer;
- or embed individual products that you wish to feature in your Joomla articles.
Search Engine Friendly
The extension creates nice, keyword-rich URLS derived from the category and product names. Even better, the Affiliate Window content plugin which is distributed as part of the package allows you to add product information directly into your Joomla articles, making it straightforward to include in your own content. The days are long gone when thin affiliate sites could hope to rank well with Google: what search engines favour these days is unique content, the plugin provides a simple way to add product links.
