Confusion About Amazon

    I have a problem! I don't understand My Amazon Associates account on Hubpages. I changed it over to be direct through Hubpages. When I go to my Amazon Associates account, I have the little bit I made in there but the money I made since the change doesn't show up. So I have two separate amounts. I am wondering how this will work. Also can I use my Amazon Associates ID, the same one on my own website? Many thanks

      Yes, you do have two accounts.   

      With the HubPages Earnings Program, you are earning with a sub-account of their account - the advantage being that you get a higher commission.      Amazon doesn't have any records for your sub-account, all that reporting is internal to HubPages.

      If you haven't reached the threshold on your personal account, you might want to switch back to it until you do reach the threshold otherwise that money will just sit there.

    Money you make through the HubPages Amazon program will not show up in your personal Amazon account stats because you are not earning that money from Amazon, you are earning it from HubPages.

    You are free to use your personal Amazon affiliate ID on your own website.

    As Relache pointed out, that money goes right into your HP monthly payout.
    It is a good deal for me here in Brasil since I do not have to worry about getting a check from Amazon. It might be better for you there in the UK too, since you do not need as many Amazon sales--any income gained through Amazon will go right into your PayPal payout.
