    Lasso: The All-In-One Affiliate Marketing Plugin for WordPress

    Lasso is a WordPress plugin that will help you create beautiful product displays, find new affiliate opportunities, and easily manage all of your important links in an affiliate dashboard. No code required.

    We also have our an affiliate program with a premium referral rate and affiliate portal.


    No complex setup or API is required with this affiliate manager. It’s just another post type in your WordPress dashboard admin and another button on your Visual editor.

    When writing blog posts, you can search for the specific affiliate link you created earlier by name.

    You can add affiliate referral links to Simple URLs while you are writing blog posts. Its customizations won’t hurt your SEO either.


    You can group your affiliate product links into hierarchical categories. E.g., placing all Amazon product links within an “Amazon” category or all popular links in a “Bestsellers” category.

    Managing your links in Simple URLs means there is only one place to change the destination URL if required rather than going back and replacing the link in potentially hundreds of articles.

    You can choose different templates from 301 (default), 302, or 307 redirects, all of which are safe link redirects.

    Link redirects protect your affiliate links from being scraped and replaced by malware in your visitor’s browser.

    There is also a smart uncloaking feature, so if the affiliate program you are using (e.g., Amazon affiliate program or another 3rd party) does not like your links behind a redirect, you can still use Simple URLs. Your affiliate id can be conditionally uncloaked on the front end.

    And unlike plugins like AAWP and EasyAzon, you can use Simple URLs for both Amazon and non-Amazon products.

    We’ve made managing your affiliate links simple with this tutorial:

    1. Upload the entire simple-urls folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
    2. DO NOT change the name of the simple-urls folder.
    3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
    4. Navigate to Settings > Permalinks and save them. Just clicking save here is necessary to refresh your permalink setup.
    5. Navigate to the Simple URLs menu
    6. Create a new URL, or manage existing URLs.
    7. Publish and use the URLs however you want!
