amazon store front script

Discussion in 'Amazon' started by dirvish, Mar 3, 2005.

    Does anyone have any experience/suggestions for setting up an Amazon store front. I've been messing with this script: http://apf.sourceforge.net/ and created this page: http://certification.foundnews.com/store/

    I'm not sure how viable this is...I have had mild success with Amazon affiliation in the past, but always through text links to specific products within my content. Can a themed Amazon store be an effective revenue source? Like anything else I'm sure it all depends on the amount of traffic it receives, but I wonder if anyone will really bother with messing with an Amazon store front on some random domain rather than just heading over to Amazon (I know I probably wouldn't). Thoughts? Suggestions? Does anyone have any experience with this?

    They may still be down from a spam attack, but I use their script for my sites in my sig.

    There is money to be made. Build them, link them, and let them earn on their own while you build other sources of revenue.

    I used the script from seo-toys.com

    Very easy to install and if you know a bit about php easily customisable

    I have though since taken it down after the google dup content stuff -- it's hard not to have duplicate page for these items as loads of people do it

    I use Amazon Store Manager 2 and it's written in php. Pretty easy to customize (to me). It doesn't create hierarchy, so you'd need to get category id number to create a list of items in whatever category you want to have in your store though. Is that the question you were asking or you want to know if there is a version of Amazon Products Feed (http://www.mrrat.com/aws/) in php?

    With regard to making actual sales, you definitely want to integrate your store into your content (or you take care of SEO if you are super good at SEO). Giving some incentives to buyers is the key.
