Current Version: Amazon Affiliate Link Localizer 1.8.3
Last Updated: 19/03/2013
This plugin not only automatically changes any Amazon link on your site to use your affiliate ID, but it also changes the link to point to the user’s local Amazon store.
So if your visitor is visiting from the UK they’ll get a link to Amazon.co.uk, if they’re visiting from the US they’ll get a link to the same product on Amazon.com. Initially, the script looks for a product with the same product ID as the one in your link, but if it can’t find one on the user’s local store, it will link to a search results page searching for the name of your product. This means that it will still be found even if international versions have different product IDs, and if it’s not stocked at all, your user will be shown similar alternatives.
All you have to do is provide all your affiliate IDs!
If you are having any problems with the script, please read the FAQ which solves most common enquiries.

As an Amazon user, you may also be interested in my Amazon Link Localizer Greasemonkey Script which automatically converts links to international Amazon sites into links to your local Amazon site.
So if I link to a product on Amazon.co.uk, and you are a US visitor, you will get a link to that same product on Amazon.com instead.

If you find this plugin helpful and it’s increasing your sales. please consider donating just $1 or more to say thanks for the many, many hours I’ve spent on it. I’d really appreciate it!
If you do not insert your own affiliate IDs the script will use mine. Hopefully this will help fund my book addiction!
