Manual affiliate links – all you need to know!
Winamaz’ affiliate links creation module allows you to manually create links to add products from advertisers that are not integrated in Winamaz so they can nontheless be presented on editors websites.
Where to start?
Once you have decided which product(s) you wish to manually add to your pages, open the “Affiliate links” module available from the “Winamaz” menu:
Creating an affiliate link in Winamaz?
In order to create an affiliate link, you must be able to link it to the same product available at another advertiser on Winamaz (this can be Amazon or another advertiser). Note that you can add any link (tracked or otherwise) to the button shortcode – click here for more information on shortocodes.
Create and define your link(s) within the Affiliate links module in Winamaz via your WordPress back office.

The affiliate link is then saved and will appear in your shortcodes if the related Product Keyword is present. You can use the “status” button to activate or deactivate a link:
You will also have access to the icons to modify the affiliate link; duplicate the link or delete the link .

By previewing the shortcodes, you can view the resulting presentation boxes/lists. As you can see, the 30EUR discount shown in the example is taken into account in both shortcodes. Also, in the list of simple shortcodes, “Best Price” and “% Off” tags have been added on the manual affiliate link:
Clicking on the “Check” button next to the advertiser will take you to the tracked page where the visitor can purchase the product:

It enables editors to provide more choice to their visitors.
