Compatibility mode for ASA1 and ASA2

The compatibility mode to Amazon Simple Admin and Amazon Simple Affiliate allows you to easily switch to our plugin. So you can switch to our plugin within a few minutes.

You can find the compatibility mode under “Affiliate Toolkit” -> “Affiliate Toolkit” -> “Compatibility Mode”.

Important: The compatibility mode does not change your posts! The shortcodes remain unchanged. The affiliate toolkit only uses the ASA shortcuts (once you disable the ASA plugin).

Amazon Simple Admin 1

1. Activate Compatibility mode

Use this option to enable the ASA1 shortcodes.

2. Shop (Standard)

This shop is only used when creating a product. Before activating, make sure that you have set up an Amazon shop with a valid connection.

3. Product status (Standard)

With the product status, you determine whether the products should be published or saved as a draft.

4. Import all collections

This option imports all created collections and not only the ones used in the post.

5. ASA template shortcut

The template linking allows you to replace your own advanced templates with our templates.

In the left-hand text box, for example, you enter the name of your template (as used in the ASA shortcode), in the right-hand selection box, select the toolkit template you want to use.

Tip: The first blank text field is always the default shortcut without templates.

6. Last import

If the compatibility mode is active and you click on “Apply changes”, all posts and pages are analyzed on ASA shortcodes. In this step all products and lists are also created. Possible errors are written in this text box.

Amazon Simple Affiliate 2

1. Activate compatibility mode

Use this option to enable the ASA2 shortcodes.

If you have created products in the ASA2 repository and changed descriptions, you can either import these descriptions into the description field or the Affiliate Toolkit Properties field.

5. Import all collections

This option imports all created collections and not only the ones used in the post.

6. ASA template shortcut

Tip: The first blank text field is always the default shortcut without templates.

Hints to this mode

Hints to this mode

If a list or a product has already been created, this list or product is not created again. The corresponding product must first be deleted.

List names must be retained

The lists of the ASA collections are listed with the name “ASA: Collection”. This can not be renamed.

If the result is not satisfying?

Switch off the compatibility mode of our plugin and reactivate ASA. Please inquire with us if something does not fit.

 

Switch from ASA to the starter version

You can also use the starter version to replace your existing posts where you use the shortcode [asa] and [asa_collection].
