In the amazon module, I think it would be great if there was an option to include the "buy" button on the "list with product reviews" feature.

I like to have the Buy button (call to action), and also the product review (which is really a description and some information about the product) and i think it would be great if we could put both in together (currently these options are available separately).

additionally, I was wondering if it might be good to be able to try out different options to see which options lead to the most conversions for the "Buy" button.

for example, I wonder if it would help if we can make the actual "buy" button bigger, and if we can have the option to customize the "buy" button text to say "buy it here", "click here for more info" or some other call to action, to see what works best for the most conversions.

just a thought.

These are all valid ideas. However, they all require the addition of extra scripts to our site which will make it slower to load. We try to avoid that.

chefkeem, Thank you so much to you and the Wizzley team for not forgetting about site speed. So many other sites have gotten clunky as they add additional features. I love being able to write a Wizzley super fast.

My conversion rates have been great on Wizzley - so I'm not worried about a Buy button or two. In fact many of my Wizzles have no Buy buttons and they still convert.

Automatically grabbing Amazon reviews is no longer allowed via Amazon API agreement. Many (all) of the wordpress tools that featured that function are now broken.

So, as far as I know, even if Wizzley wanted to proceed with it, they couldnt!

A buy/call to action is a great and well proven tool but Im sure with a little creativity you could still use that without it being hard coded into the site!

Actually, we should say "List with product description" instead of "reviews". Oops, will try to change that asap.

When you choose only "List" - then there's a "buy" button. But I'll talk with Simon about the possibility of adding the button to the "List with..description" as well.
