"View All Item Offers" does not work

Post by HollyRidge » Thu Apr 09, 2015 12:41 pm

When clicking on "View All Item Offers" it just opens the AOM site in a new window (or new tab) to its homepage. It does not work as expected. For example (steps to duplicate)...
Browsers checked: Firefox, Chrome, IE
AOM Version: 5.6.0

Amazon limits each category to ten pages, ten items per page. So if more items are available than that, you have to use the 'View All Items' link to go to Amazon. It works exactly the way Amazon designed the link to work. And of course, if someone clicks on the link and then makes a purchase, you are credited with any commission due, just like any other Amazon link.

I don't think you understand my previous post Mike. This has nothing to do with categories. It is a single item and only 2 users to buy from show up although there are several possibilities. If you follow the steps I provided you will be able to see what I am referring to.

Gotcha now. I was thinking of the 'View All Items' link in pagination, not in the Marketplace. Under the SEO tab of your AOM control panel, do you have URL Cloak set to ON? If so, turn it OFF.

That did the trick but is there a way we can open this inside of AOM instead of amazon? Also if they buy it from amazon that way do we still get credit for it? What about if they decide to buy something else directly from amazon while they are there, do we get credit for that as well?

Amazon provides the data feed (the API) which AOM and other applications can use to display Amazon content internally, but they draw the line at Amazon itself inside other programs. So it's not possible to display the contents of the link inside AOM itself.

But, your associate ID is incorporated within the link, so you do get credited for any applicable purchases that the customer may make after following the link to Amazon. Every pathway from AOM to Amazon is treated by them as if you clicked on a banner ad or text link to their site.
