This is my review of the Streamstore Plugin for Amazon affiliates.
Overall this product is a really simple “done for you” method for getting an Amazon affiliate store up and running. In the past most store builders generally have you adding products one by one and trying to do all the design work on your own.
You also usually need to incorporate a professional theme in addition to the actual plugin needed to import products from Amazon. There are both advantages and disadvantages to this and I will outline them later in this post.
Take a look at this slideshow of the features of this plugin:
Stream Store is a very fast solution for starting up a store. You get a high quality design right out of the box that is simple to modify within the WordPress dashboard, you can customize everything from colors to fonts and beyond:
They also have a simple “Quick Start” system that will have your store up and running within literally seconds. The products are pulled based on the provided keywords and Amazon categories you select.
I found the setup process and customization to be very straight forward. The theme is highly focused on the idea of seeking out discounts for products. Everything is also refreshed live and updated on the fly based on the keywords you provided.
Each product page also includes product images, the product description, and all of the Amazon reviews for that product all on the same page.
Most of the front page layout uses Amazon.com banner images to indicate that the products are all available on Amazon for sale adding a nice trust factor to your store.
I believe all in all this is a really great “fast” WordPress based solution for getting your store up and running without any issues. If you don’t feel the need to be customizing themes, picking unique products and trying to build a fancy looking site Stream Store is really going to get it all done for you with ease.
It fills the need to simply get a nicely designed Amazon affiliate store built in a flash. A lot of people may not want to spend hours designing a site and they want something that looks good right out of the gate. I’ve found solutions like Fresh Store Builder offer a nice “builder” but lack in design qualities where as most Amazon affiliate store plugins simply allow you to add products and have zero focus on design.
Stream Store takes the power of a CMS like WordPress and combines it with an easy quick start setup so you don’t need to spend hours trying to build out a nice looking site. I recommend it for those that want this type of solution and don’t care much about the products appearing on the site vs. being able to pick your own and customize product pages.
They also provide a full training area on how to set everything up as well as many additional upsell products such as a developer license to re-sell the plugin, additional design layouts, a viral sharing plugin and much more.
