Plugin / Amazon Post Purchase




Amazon Post Purchase Plugin is based upon the Amazon Product In a Post plugin developed by Don Fischer.

While that plugin is intended for displaying products within a Post, this plugin will display products as a side-bar widget in themes that support dynamic side-bars.

This plugin is useful for when you want to display different Amazon products in the side-bar for individual Posts. The plugin will only display when the Post or Page has a custom field set.

How it Works:
The plugin uses the newest Amazon Product Advertising API, ensuring full security on all transaction calls.

To use the plugin, you should first get an Amazon Affiliate Account. Once you have an account, install the plugin, enter your Amazon Associate ID, and the keyname you will use in your post’s Custom Field to track the ASIN.


You can customize the look and feel of the displayed widget, including turning on or off the display of certain data elements, through CSS. The following CSS describes the various data elements displayed in the Widget:

#amazon-post-purchase-container {
  /* This is the container DIV for the displayed widget */
#amazon-post-purchase-image  {
  /* This is the container DIV for the product IMAGE.  Defaults are: */
#amazon-post-purchase-large-image-link {
  /* This controls the display of the text "See larger image"  Defaults are: */
#amazon-post-purchase-byline {
  /* This DIV contains the product 'title' and 'author' information.  Two sub elements are contained within this DIV: */
#amazon-post-purchase-byline H2 {
    /* This is where the product 'title' is contained */
#amazon-post-purchase-byline #amazon-post-purchase-author {
    /* This is where the product 'author' is contained */
#amazon-post-purchase-publication {
  /*  This Container displays the Format (ie: 'paperback'), Release Date, and Publisher information.
      If you turn 'off' display of this id, all 3 of those elements will not be displayed */
#amazon-post-purchase-price {
  /*  This is where the 'List Price', 'New Price' and 'Used Price' are displayed
      If you turn 'off' display of this id, all 3 of those elements will not be displayed */
#amazon-post-purchase-button {
  /*  This controls the display of the 'Buy Now at Amazon' button.
      By default, this displays the image "images/buyamzon-button.png" in the plugin directory.
      If you want to use a different 'buy' button, simply save a new image with the same name to this location. */
