A) Installing UpdateZon - top

UpdateZon is installed as others plugins, from Wordpress Plugin Admin panel.

Once installed, you have to active the plugin

B) Configuration of UpdateZon - top

Next step will be the configuration of UpdateZon. You can find it in your Settings Menu and then click it.

IMPORTANT! Your Wordpress user must have CREATE and ALTER table permissions in your database. If you don't know what I'm talking about, then no worry about it.

In the next screen, you need to complete all form fields. You need an Affiliate Amazon account and fill in your Associate Tag, Amazon Access Key and Amazon Secret Key fields. You have to select your Amazon local store too.

The next field you need to complete is the ASIN Amazon products. You will get this IDs in the url of the Amazon products. It's very important to separate them by commas and no spaces.

Then, you can save changes.

Use of UpdateZon - top

UpdateZon plugin works with shortcodes, so the use of it is very simple.

For example:

        The price is: [updatezon price="B002NX0M8C"] USD
        Date when the price was updated: [updatezon date="B002NX0M8C"]
        URL of the product: [updatezon url="B002NX0M8C"]

The result is:

        The price is: 45.65 USD
        Date when the price was updated: 2014-04-13 14:00:00 UTC
        URL of the product: http://www.amazon.xxxxxxx/[[YOUR_AFFILIATE_ID]]
