We are happy to announce the release of a new version of our extension, Amazon Shopping Cart. Version 1.2.5. It has several new features: most significantly it can now display products from the Amazon Spain, Mexico and Brazil websites, as well as for the previously supported country sites (USA, Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, China, Japan and India).

The new version also improves the display on https web pages. The plugin can automatically use a secure iframe url for the Amazon customer reviews, with the result that the reviews can now be displayed on secure pages; also it will use secure urls for the product images, so that these do not generate security warnings.

Amazon Shopping Cart is a complete package of Joomla extensions based around our AmazonWS Joomla content plugin, that allows you to create an Amazon store on your Joomla website, including a shopping cart. Customers can browse your site, and add items to their cart without leaving your site: it is only when they are ready to pay that they are redirected to the Amazon website.

Within the cart the customers can have multiple items, can modify the quantity, delete items, or save them for later. If they are logged into your site the cart can also be stored for up to 90 days: useful for people who want to go "window shopping" but are not ready to buy yet.

The package can be used with any Joomla content that supports content plugins, including the native Joomla content component, also for example K2 or Virtuemart, and is compatible with Joomla versions 2.5 and 3. The product information includes your affiliate links to Amazon: when a customer uses your site to buy products, you get paid.
