Affiliate Blogging – Link One Product to Two Different Shops

Affiliate Blogging – One Product, Two Different Shops

 

In case you are affiliated with a couple of shops you might want to link the same product to both shops. This will allow your readers to find the product easily on both shops, compare prices & pick their favorite.

 

To start, follow the steps as the example below.

Add products

In your collection select a shop and find the product.
In our example I picked a product from SimonSaysStamp.

Now choose another shop and find the same product. Add it to your list just next to the other one.

That would work great. But wouldn’t it look better if you had ONE image linking to two different shops?

Easy isn’t it?
See that little chain icon at the bottom left corner of the second product? Just click on it.

The two products are now combined!
Only ONE image will appear in your blog for this product with links to both shops! In case the image of the product is slightly different in each shop keep in mind that the tool displays the first image on each pair. So make sure to place the image you would like to be displayed first.

Here is how it looks on your blog:

SSS is for SimonSaysStamp and IE is for Inpiration Emporium.
Clicking on SSS or IE will take your readers to the the shop’s product page.
If you decide that you don’t want these products combined just click on the chain between them.

    I have tried this a couple of times on my wordpress blog and it does not display like this. It still shows the product twice and doesn’t indicate which shop it is from. I have no idea what I am doing wrong!

      Hi Elizabeth,

      unfortunately, the 2 shops in one link feature works only with the new widget which is not possible to be rendered in wordpress.com as it does not allow embedding of any kind of

  2. I am in blogger and the product shows up twice. Does this not work in blogger either?

    • Aris says:

      Yes it does. Please make sure you are using the new widget and that the editor does not modify the code (it has a small script part that if removed, will render the old code).

    I have been trying to do this for a couple of days now. I get one product but not the correct information below it. Rather than saying “SSS” and “AZ” it’ll say something like (Pink s/ Dual f) like it’s trying to give a description of the product. I’ve checked and rechecked the links and all the information and it all seems correct, so I’m just not quite sure what I’m doing wrong. I am in blogger. Thanks for your help!
