I love that the WooZone plugin combines my favorite aStore features with the ability to style and make listings look like they are a part of my site. It is so convincing that brand owners have contacted me for help figuring out who is selling their products.
My plan is to use this plugin for Experiment 3 until it proves itself profitable, then I will license a second copy for Experiement 4.
WooZone plugin for WooCommerce NOT using on-site cart, AlrightAmusements.com
The WooZone plugin comes with two options. You can use the on-site cart, which sends a pre-filled cart request to Amazon when you check out. Or, the link can open on Amazon’s website (or in the Amazon App) each time a customer clicks “Buy Now.”
For AlrightAmusements, I plan to use the second option.
- The WooZone plugin will sync items selected by me into WooCommerce.
- Depending on the visitor’s device and how it is configured, clicking “Buy Now” can open the Amazon product listing in their browser or it can launch the Amazon App.
- AlrightAmusements averages 80 visitors per month, 4% mobile
Amazon Associate Experiments
- Experiement Intro – Summary of my experiment and overall timeline.
- Experiment 0 – The Amazon Associates aStore (Discontinued) My 2008 Amazon Associates experience. aStores were discontinued in 2017.
- Experiment 1 – Links and Banners Embedded Amazon generated links and banners, embedded in my articles. Can open the Amazon App for an easy mobile shopping experience.
- Experiment 2 – Native ads and links on product pages. Amazon generated links and banners, embedded on my WooCommerce product pages. (I offer a product on my website, also show a link for a similar Amazon item.)
- Experiment 3 – WooZone plugin for WooCommerce using On-Site cart. This option looks like I am selling items from my own website. But when visitors try to check out, they are directed to an Amazon page that can auto-fill their cart. Downside: The Amazon page is not mobile-friendly.
- Experiment 4 – WooZone Plugin for WooCommerce NOT using on-site cart. This option can look like I am selling items from my own website. But instead of adding an item to the cart, you will be taken to the product information page on Amazon.
