amazon-logo2-medWe are happy to announce that the new release of our Amazon Shopping Cart extension for Joomla!, version 1.3.0, now includes new geolocation features. With these features, when a customer visits your site, their country can be detected from their IP address, and they can be shown products from their local Amazon site. The feature is highly customisable: you can select exactly which Amazon site a customer in any country will see, and set the affiliate tag for each country. You can read more about the geolocation features here.

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.
