I use Pro version, like the ease of use and the design of the tool. When I needed help the support team helped me very friendly!

If there were zero stars I would give this plugin zero. I own the expensive Pro version and it is a long way off its rivals at thirsty affiliates and pretty links. I have held back with this review for 2 months waiting for auto keywords to appear. When it does, yet again it is a complete shambles and fails to work. Moving files from thirsty affiliates to betterlinks fails to pick up the autolinks and instead creates errors all across your website with html code all over the place. And to make matter worse it fails to click all of the boxes, even when you tick them, leaving the amazon links all open for you to get disqualified for failing to follow terms of agreement. Customer service for the paid version is as slow and as poor as it gets. I have not had a slower customer service with any other paid software. Plus they close almost all of the tickets after sending you a reply, normally that fails to address the issue. I even gave them access to one of my websites and they could still not repair the issue. I do not think they even looked, to be honest. Really poor results so far and reverted back to THIRSTY AFFILIATES until they get this plugin fixed. Just the dashboard alone is pretty useless, putting links into categories that make no sense at all. The auto keywords sector, which is very important as those keywords connect to links on any of your posts needs to be spot on. The software brought all of the auto links across and gave each one a 404 page. Absolute junk at the moment. It also failed to tick the no-follow box for all of the Amazon links. This makes your website open to closure from Amazon should they check it until you have managed to tick all of the boxes in your links. At the moment I would say 12 months behind as the tool cannot get near its rivals at Thirsty affiliates or pretty links for reliabilty and useability.

I use the Pro version and am very impressed with this plugin. It's extremely easy to use, the Category organization feature is great, and the ability to drag and drop individual links to keep your links organized is absolutely fantastic. I never used the lite version prior to getting Pro, but I'm very happy with this plugin.

So there's 2 big name affiliate cloakers currently in the marketplace and I think I found this on accident through their site and decided to give it a try because I really liked the presentation (modern, clean, and simple) as well as the features for the free version. I have to say, it is an excellent alternative to Pretty Links and Thirsty Affiliates. Functions as expected and I haven't had any issues with it as of yet. There's a dark and light option too! Amazing! Excellent developers!
