Hey Alex, Great video. Thanks for going to all the effort of making it. Is there a bulk import of products available? Creating the products one at a time seems very slow (especially if some product lines have hundreds of products). Thanks again,

Hey WP Eagle, you did an excellent job on this video. I followed it step by step and it taught me many things I didn't know about the theme. Your steps and build on your tutorial project is very professional and easy to follow along.Keep up the good work, I really appreciate it, and I'm sure others do too 🙂

Hi, very nice video thanks a lot!
I bought my domain and the plugins from your links 🙂
But I would like to know if there is any way to add all product that are on amazon directly without having to do the all thing 1 by 1 manually for each item…

Thanks

Hello WP Eagle. I want to again thank you for this video. I think the people watching should know that I was denied to Vigilink and Linkshare for applying/setting up the initial API keys while my site is still under construction. They will not accept me as an affiliate and now I don't know if they ever will? I think you should state a time frame on the video of how quickly a person has to actually get this site up and running. Seems to be a VERY short time frame due to my recent experience. I thought I could leisurely build this site in my spare time but that is clearly not the case for me…

Hi Alex, is it legal to use the product description of the other site like your example to your affiliate website?

Can you use a non ThemeForest theme as for every single tutorial we would need to get a new theme which costs a lot. Just occasionally.

Hello I have a question regarding the amazon affiliate program. I have signed up for an accout and it is under review. I called them directly and they told me that I need to first send them traffic from my website before they will give me API details. How can I do that if the REHub theme requires the information first? Please advise.

Is it possible to upload multiple product list as it is not possible to manually add each product . Any solution for this? Say i want to add all electronics from amazon, flipkart, ebay do i have t o add manually each product or is there any way to bulk import?

Hi WP Eagle. Just a question. I see that the title of the home page "Save your money on amazing trainers" is an H1 while the custom heading is an H1 as well. Is this convenient for SEO? As long as I know, it shoudl be 1 H1 each page.

thanks in advance

Hi Alex,
I am looking for Redeal child theme. I have Rehub theme with me but its not having Redeal child theme. Where can I get that?

@WP Eagle is it possible to upload multiple products and photos instead of doing it all individually? I want my customers to be able to search ever product available on the sites? Is that possible?

Hi Alex once again great video. Whats the best way to find out which Affiliate programs to register with if say you want UK only, or a certain product range? Also on the Viglink account do you need to paste their code into your pages for the affiliate link to work?

hi wpeagle please make one tutorial of atleast 5 hrs by combining all child themes… thanks alott for this great tutorial.. 🙂

Was struggling for the last 15 days. Finally, got it all together after watching this video.
Thanks so much ☺️….god bless you!!!!!

Dear WP Eagle,

i stuck in minute 31:55 by uploading the Demo Stack to WP Clone. I just get a file to download and no URL to copy. I tried to copy the Link from the download, but it dosen't works. Could you please tell me how to deal with a file instead of a Link?

Thanks in advance!

Kind Regards,

Marlon

I'm slightly confused. What is the difference between a site like HostGator and GoDaddy? Are they not both just hosting sites? I have made a very basic shop site before, where i made the site in Strikingly and then tied it to a domain i bought in GoDaddy. Could i not buy the domain in GoDaddy, host in GoDaddy with this WordPress RE:hub plugin thing and that be it? I'm just confused about what unique quality HostGator has. Great vid though, thanks. A lot of time and effort on your side.

Hi WP Eagle, thank you so much for creating this video. Could you tell me how you made the 'see it' button colour blue and kept the 'buy for best price' green on your product posts?

Have you look at the trainersaver site on mobile? There is an extra search bar added to header. I have the same problem on my site (recompare theme). I have tried every header option offered. But nothing works to remove it. To me, it looks bad with 3 search functions. Any ideas?

Hi great video. I have removed the attributes from the products and added my own description but im still getting features pulled in from Amazon How do I edit or remove these.

Hi Alex, I am creating price comparison website after watching your video. I am stucked at one issue. I have several products and their featured images. Now whenever I change the existing featured image of a product it shows that it has changed it but when I go to the Post it still shows me the old image not the updated one. Please help me in the issue.

This has been an excellent tutorial but I’ve ran in to a bit of a wall where I can’t go much further. My site has not launched yet and because of that I am not accepted as a full affiliate, I don’t have access to the API or secrets. I can’t get those without having a working website for the affiliates to check out but I need to be an affiliate to make the damn thing! Because I am new to building websites I don’t know how to get products on my site and have them price compared against other suppliers. How do I go about doing this? Are there any resources you could point me towards? Thanks

Thank you for the video – really good. Can I ask, if I want to pull in products from other websites (not the typical ebay or Amazon), what would be the best way to arrange?

can you find skyscanner and other holiday websites for those who are building a cheap holiday comparison website on rehub?

Do I need to buy both the Theme and Plug-in, or is the Plug-in enough? I’d like to design My website myself without paying over $60, But Im not a coder. Can I create a similar website with a website builder?

Can you use Content Egg with Best Buy and newegg? I tried finding those in the list, but couldn't. Affiliate egg has then in the list.

Hi, I have different email in aws console , can i use the keys in my amazon affiliate account having different email id???

Hey man. Thanks so much for this. I just finished mine. The url is tenniscompare. com if you want to take a look. The only thing I'm worried about now is the viglink working (I can't see clicks) and getting accepted for Amazon API.

Hello, Looking to create a similar site for customers websites that are not in the canned product. Is it possible to add other customers (Affiliates) ? I have a list of customers that all have output files and would like to add them. Thank you

why always the same problem.can't import nothing from Amazon

Amazon has now changed its API issuance policies. New affiliate websites are no longer able to generate API keys for referral tracking purposes. In order to be given API keys, the website has to make three eligible sales. Sigh….

I have no API Access Keys and Security, is there a way I can pull up product data from Amazon using Content egg? Thanks.

Sir I'm from pakistan. first of all i thank you for sharing such quality tutorials with us. i really appreciate your hard work . sir my question is do i run this kind of website from pakistan and if i can but those high brand like amazon and ebay do not ship to pakistan and that plugin you introduce to us is bound to all those high brands. what if we want to make a website where our brands in pakistan like
@t and @t and many more i want to compare prices of these brands . what should i do which plugin i use for to connect with these websites. please sir guide me. looking forward to your answer. GOD BLESS YOU ….

Did you encounter any 403 access denied error when using Content Egg? I am using the free version of content egg, and each time I add a product to a post and click publish, I get an access denied 403 error page. I am not using any other plugins, and this happens with the basic wordpress theme.

Great video WP Eagle, please would it be possible to put a disclaimer at the beginning advising some steps a redundant now such as the Content Egg Pro steps, or the Amazon associates steps, Amazon now have a approval review which they action after 3 sales have completed, therefore no API or secret key information is released prior approval. This disclaimer will help make future viewers make an informed decision to either make the affiliate site or not, as not everybody is blessed to have £200 plus to invest. I would also suggest to advised your prices quoted in the video do not inlcude any taxes which maybe applied at the end of each purchase e.g domain name purchase price + taxes etc

Sir i just show a youtube video that was related PRICE COMPARE WEBSITE 
then i also want to create like that a website but i have a problem when i upload demo theme then that is not uploading .please help mee, please sir

My very first website is now live!

Can you please let me know how it looks ?

I am still working to ad products and articles and edit different things around .

Thank you very much WP Eagle

Hi WP Eagle, I used all your affiliate links and discounts. I appreciate all the value information! Just one question, I'm creating an affiliate website for bicycles, do I need to webscrape these other websites first for the specific products? I'm having trouble figuring that out

Helpful Content 🙂 Please update the details for few new point like how to use it with "Demo Stack->Demo Import" as 'Demo site clone' is deprecated, and even the deprecated clone functionality use "all in one wp migration" in place of "wp-clone" where we need to download theme and then upload in free version of "all in one wp migration".

Hi Alex. I have registered and been accepted as an affiliate on eBay.com, but I am in the UK and I want to use it on eBay .co.uk

So my question is, if I want to use it in the UK do I need to re-register now with eBay.co.uk

Hi Alex

Thanks for answering my last question. I am thinking of making a comparision website using the REHUB and Content Egg for Amazon.co.uk and adding products manually, because I have not yet got my affiliate code from Amazon.co.uk. I have not yet got access to the API. So my question: is it possible to add products manually and get any of the functions of REHUB and Content Egg? Or must I get the API permission first?

BTW I have earned £4.75 from my affiliate code back in January (whoopee) which is what spurred me to your excellent videos in the first place.

Hi Alex

I am following along with your tutorial, but I am hitting stumbling blocks along the way.
Probably because of different versions of the software

I installed WordPress 4.9.1 to be the same as your video, But the Themeforest download was V8 which is different from the video 7.1.1, in that it downloads .wpress file which at the moment is a bit above my brain power.

How would I install this?

Thanks

Hi Alex

Hi Alex

I have followed the video below and managed to upload the .wpress file, which now appears in the correct place, but it seems that only the paid version of all-in-one-wp-migration ($69) will restore the file.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRp7qTFYKgs

Is there any other way to restore the .wpress file?

BTW I prefer the way you entered the demos with a url. which seems a much easier way. This new way seems a lot more difficult and costly

Hi Alex

I am making progress again. I fact it is the furthest I have ever got with an affilliate site.

I am looking for these 2 pages (images attached) but I cannot find them anywhere.
I want to create and customize a filter widget in a sidebar on the categories page
https://snag.gy/LOcUVI.jpg
https://snag.gy/I3ETUt.jpg
I am watching the video around 2:10:00
But they seem to have altered the theme since your video was made and their videos
are years old

BTW "More price comparison site videos coming soon!" Has that happened yet?

Regards Jeff

Hi Alex

Upon checking my affiliate links it seems that none of them (i have only got ebay and Viglen at the moment) have the affiliate info on the url. I am currently building my site on localhost and wonder if that was the cause.

Other than that I'm pretty sure I have all the Content Egg setting entered: Application ID (AppID), PN Campaign ID, and the Ebay module is enabled.

A similar situation with Viglen

Is their anything else I should check?

Hi there,

I'm trying to import the file theme (recompaer) but it not working it looks like they change something in the setting it was "Demo Stacks " now its " Demo Import" and it has different setting I think. can you help me..?

Hi wp eagle I am currently building a website using ur video. I was wondering when I have launched it if u could review my site and give me some feedback on what's good and bad so I can improve it.

Cheers

Thank you for all of your tutorials. You are a great instructor and an altruistic one. I had hell of a time with REHUB theme so I gave up on it and decided to go with Thrive and other themes. Rehub theme THING or their child theme rather is so hard to grasp and has no video tutorial sadly. Anyhow, you are a great instructor and I am glad that I "stumbled" upon your tutorials. Thank you kindly.

Amazon dont allow to copy any thing of their site image , reviews , products to our site , as per their terms and condition , if we add products sny thing else from rheir site to our site , will it not block our amazon affiliate account ??? Plz comments

Thanks for a great video. I'm looking for a cash back plug-in that can work with this theme. Would like to split my commission with buyer. Any suggestions?

Hello and thank you for everything,

A question, can you install or configure in any way any plugin to work this way in another subject?

A greeting.

Is it possible to bulk import products from multiple ecommerce websites, as i could only find videos with plugins to import products only from amazon, for price comparison we need same products from multiple websites

Just cost me £100 as you can no longer get api info from amazon without prior approval. Not having amazon on a price comparison is kind of pointless.

NEED HELP >> Api Keys from Walmart?
i registered on affiliates.walmart. com and it is pending review

.In that account i saw some auth token and account SID.

But when i searched on internet they are getting API keys from developer.walmart. com but i can't register on that .do i need to register on walmart. io to get api keys or how to proceed from here?

Dear Sir,
I have installed content egg.When i am adding any product from flipkart,amazon etc . only product name is appearing when i view product,no images or view occur .I have done all the things 3 times step by step but all time same error occurs.What to do now .I have already purchase content egg and install it.

Another great video as usual. Just wondering if it will be very difficult to build the site from scratch instead of using demo site.

Great video! Hope you are still looking at these comments – just wondering if you actually need woocommerce in order for content egg to work? Thanks 😊
