Since ebay uses the same tracking mechanism of Google Adsense, it becomes easier to integrate your earnings with HP's own earning program.
Amazon, on the other hand, tracks on it own through its associate program and hence not integrated with Hub Pages. Maybe sometimes in the future it could be integrated, but for now you have to do the extra work of checking your earnings. Not a bad job, I guess, especially if your making tons!!
