"For the avoidance of doubt, with Your participation in the Amazon Program under HubPages, You will not have a direct contractual relationship with Amazon, the Amazon Associates Program, or any advertiser/merchant of Amazon. "
How is this legal and valid contractual wording when I actually have a direct contractual relationship with Amazon.com via my enrollment with their program, and I would continue to do so even if I signed up for participation in HubPages' in-house program?
Isn't this rather vague? Doesn't this leave the door open to some really horrible misinterpretation? Or abusive actions potentially?
Obvious irregularities like this that have kept me well away from making any changes.
It not only leaves the door open, it slams the jail door shut. Amazon kicked me out of their program for the second time because of no sales or referrals. I didn't know I was in Amazon's stand alone program because I am in HP Amazon program. So because I have been kicked out of Amazon a second time, does that mean I am also kicked out of HP's Amazon program?
And if HP keeps me in their Amazon program, isn't that a violation of Amazon's TOS for not having Amazon referrals or sales within 90 days?
It is a very sticky wicket when each has their own rules and contracts.
So because I have been kicked out of Amazon a second time, does that mean I am also kicked out of HP's Amazon program?
No, it does not.
You can use the HubPages Amazon program without an individual affiliate account with them.
You also don't have to worry about making sales in 90 days with the HubPages program.
This blog post by Marina does a good job of explaining the differences.

We are looking into making wording changes to make it clearer.

Amazon changed their affiliate program yesterday by cutting the payout for most affiliates by half or more. Has HubPages addressed how these changes will affect content providers here?
