Nickel Sale Today For WordPress Affiliate Link Plugin


The nickel sale for the affiliate link cloaker plugin for WordPress is now CLOSED, but you can still get it for $17 until the official site and affiliate scheme becomes live using this link:-

WordPress Affiliate Link Plugin – $17

(For reference, the nickel sales page is still there on the link below, but the payment link has now been removed. You can still use the link above to purchase.


In a few hours as I write this, the nickel sale for a very cool plugin that integrates with WordPress and lets you hide and track your affiliate click throughs will go live, today at 6.00pm GMT (1.00pm EST).

Essentially what this plugin will allow you to do is to create affiliate links on your blog that look like a regular page or post. It does this by hooking into the WordPress permalink system – something that standalone scripts can’t do.

As if that alone isn’t good enough, it will also track your click throughs allowing you to work out which products you’re promoting are the most popular. And of course when comparing those clicks through into conversions, you can then work out which are the best programs to promote in terms of direct earnings. 😉

Next, you can force your URL to stay in the address bar while the target page you’re promoting is shown in an iframe.

This effectively means that to a casual visitor it looks very much like the page they’re viewing is part of your blog. 😉

And finally, you can check a box that will hide the links from menus and page lists (WP 3.x +). This will come in very handy if you want to create an affiliate link, but not have it appear on your menus and widgets etc.

When we officially launch this plugin, it will be for $27 and will include minor upgrades all the way up to v2. This is your chance to get the same deal but at less than half the price.

These nickel sales have a habit of being very popular and taking off very quickly, so you have to be a bit quick to get the best deal.

Let me put it like this…

You’re going to get a good deal on this plugin if you get it in the nickel sale at whatever the price. It’s way better than waiting and then seeing it on sale at $27 in a week or so’s time. Isn’t it?

But you’re going to be more pleased with your purchase if you can get it at the lowest price it will ever be. Right?

Don’t kid yourself with this one. This is probably one of the most unassuming but truly useful plugins you’ll ever see, and I can guarantee it’s one that you’ll be using all the time.

The nickel sale starts at just $6.97 and goes up by 5 cents every time a purchase is made. The faster you get there, the better (lower!) the price.

At 6.00pm GMT (1.00pm EST) today, I’ll make a new post here on this blog with the location of the nickel sale.

Hi Frank,

I had time set aside for this nickel sale yesterday. Sorry you had technical difficulties.

Today I have a commitment that keeps me out of the early purchase activities, but you can bet I’ll jump in soon as I’m able.

I find these WP tools you’ve been providing make my web work much easier, my sites more professional looking, and I’ve received very positive comments on the multiple streams theme.

Even if I have to pay the $27 price this is one tool that looks useful enough to be well worth it.

Hey thanks Joe, I REALLY appreciate what you’re saying. I’ve been trying very hard to give everyone the tools they need to make a difference to their online efforts, and it’s great to hear words of thanks like this.

G’day Frank,

How does this differ to the redirection plugin.?



Frank Haywood

@Rob P. Cruisin:

Click stats, link cloaking, storing of notes and login details for your affiliate programs, hiding from menus and page lists etc, and has an upgrade path to make it better. We probably won’t be doing any more work on the Redirection plugin whereas there’s some really nice bits and pieces I want to add into this to make it much better than this first offering.

All minor upgrades, v1.1, v1.2 etc will be included in the purchase price.

If you’re not interested in any of the above, then stick with the Redirection plugin. 😉


Hey, Frank!

Is this the Redirection Link plugin we have been “discussing” in our other PL Ahh arenas?



Frank Haywood

@Ben PISg:

No, this is a full link cloaker with the features mentioned above.


Derek Taylor

This sounds like a great plugin. I currently use a link generator to hide my affiliate links, which works nicely, but requires me to login to the domain I have it installed on and create the link. I can only imagine the convenience as well as the time saved by being able to do it right in my wp admin area. Thanks Frank! I look forward to the sale.

Frank Haywood

@Derek Taylor:

Snap! Now this is done I’ll be moving all my affiliate links over to this plugin and scrapping my old script.

I’ve got some great little features up my sleeve, that I want to surprise you with. 😉


Hi Frank – I’m in! I was wondering if you are going to make a video or pdf “instructions” on the “best” ways to use this link cloaker, and any extra tips we might need to know?

Thanks, and keep it up!

Yay, I was first to buy !!

Exactly what I needed after a certain other product stopped being available for free. Looks like WordPress have pulled all freely available cloaking plugins, so this is an absolute must !!
