WP Get Products From Amazon PA API 5 is a lightweight WordPress plugin which allows you to easily add products from Amazon PA API 5 to your website. The plugin retrieves product title, image url, features and affiliate link from the API. You can then embed the product to your posts with the shortcode [gpfa asin=”productAsin”] where productAsin is asin of Amazon product. The plugin doesn’t require coding skills but as it comes with only one template it’s best for developers with knowledge of CSS, HTML and PHP.
The plugin retrieves the following information:
- Image URL
- Affiliate LInk
Smart Cache allows storing products information in the database rather than retrieving it from the API every time a page loads. Products in the database are then updated via CRON task which prevents throttled requests from the API and increases page speed.
Cache Refresh Interval
Cached products are updated via CRON job daily, twice daily or hourly. You select the interval in the settings. Hence, the information about the products is always up to date.
While the plugin comes with a very basic template, it is recommended that you create your own template which fits your needs and website. How to create a custom template is explained in the documentation.
You can retrieve product information from whichever Amazon locale with filters. See more about this in the documentation.
