  1. Right now i am looking for affiliate management plugin for my own site to run affiliate program of my own site. Do you know any such plugin. Waiting for your response harsh.

  2. Caesi Bevis

    WP Affiliate website says it hasn’t been updated since 2008 – – I doubt it works with current versions of WP.

    I would suggest Convergence (Commission Junction) or JVZoo.

    However CJ / Convergence never did get back to me about questions before signing up (over one month now and several emails) and JV Zoo I think I am up to like 5 emails to them – and the two back have been non-answers. Questions related to setting up the chain payments through PayPal – which should be a pretty basic question. Still waiting for support – – and it’s been half-way through the third week.

  3. A very good list! Another plugin/affiliate platform to consider is VigLink. The plugin is not that great, but I’ve made money with VigLink – quite unexpectedly too!

  4. Hi bro
    I’ve used thirsty plugin it’s very good and is first in your list also. Other plugins I’ve to see.

    Thank you for sharing

  5. Angie Nelson

    EasyAzon and Better Links Pro are two of my favorite affiliate plugins. Both by Chris Guthrie. I love the localization and ability to see CTR on a page level.

  6. Thanks harsh for your great support, this article is very helpful as I am struggling to get good plugin that makes my amazon affiliate program to run on the territory bases. You made it to reduce my struggle a lot. Once again thank you.

  7. harsh now I want to do affiliate marketing please help me.I don’t know more about affiliate marketing

  8. Great Article Harsh! I use PrettyLink Lite and I’m surprised at its simplicity. I made the switch from Thirsty Affiliates not too long ago. The other plugins are also something I might consider as well. Very powerful stuff.

    I just signed up for the Amazon Affiliate program, got a domain name and WordPress.org site, and now need to design my online store where I will post Amazon products (not my own). NOTE – I’m not just doing a blog with links to products; I’m creating a store with pictures of products where purchases will be completed through Amazon. Before reading your post here, I did a lot of research and thought WooCommerce plus the WooCommerce Amazon Affiliate plug-in was the way to go. Now I have added the WooCommerce plug-in, but I cannot find the WooCommerce Amazon Affiliate plug-in. Has it been discontinued? Or is it the same thing as WooZone? WooZone Light has gotten some terrible reviews from other users. Here are my questions: 1) Is there an alternative to the WooZone Light plugin that will work with WooCommerce? 2) Could I use EasyAzon along with WooCommerce? 3) Or should I get rid of the WooCommerce plug in and just use EasyAzon?

  10. Hi, Harsh Agrawal
    I read your articles, and i find them useful and interesting, i installed thirsty affiliate links, but it dosen’t work for the links which were already created manually, like open in new window, and add nofollow.
    What i do in this case?

  11. It’s really a good collection of wp affiliate plugins which are so much popular and functional. I loved that review which you’ve shared on this blog. Thank You!

  12. I have wordpress.com free blog and i want to run affiliate program to upgrade my free plan to personal plan.Can i run it?

    1. Hey Viraj,

      You can run affiliate marketing even on your free blog but you will not get the same desired results as you will get when you migrate to self hosted WordPress. My suggestion is to migrate to WordPress.org and then start affiliate marketing.

  13. Hi, I have a wordpress blog website and no product. I am looking for some plugin which can let members love to share my post and they can earn money from me, could you please introduce some plugin like these I need to me ? Maybe I will sell some product in the future but not now, thank you so much.

  14. Sir, can you advice me a plugin by which I will get to know that how much products are brought going through my Amazon affiliate website.

  15. Hi Harsh, I am looking for the plugin which helps displaying current real price of product from Amazon.in (Not .com)
    Please suggest me the perfect plugin. I dont need any other big features but just the price fetcher.
    Thanks in Advance

  16. Hi
