    How do I embed my Amazon aStore as an inline frame or frameset?  Specifically, where to I paste the HTML text on the HubPages site?

      While you can embed the Amazon astore into hubpages you have to do it as  a "Simple link to my store as a standalone site"  It doesn't look as nice and doesn't have the Amazon logo, but it is possible.  I just did it for one of my hubs http://hubpages.com/hub/Born-to-Run-Book-Review under the heading "More Adventure and Travel Books from Amazon".  Admittedly, it looks like just another link and not a "store" but I'm interested to see if it generates any results.  Hope that helps.

    you can't use an astore on hubpages, you can only use the amazon module and select products or keywords for products.  You can only use the astore on your own websites.  I have a hub on how to add an astore to your wordpress blog, if you have one.

    When you start your hub, there is a box at the top right, saying: ADD MORE CAPSULES. There is one saying Amazon. Click it and it is added to the bottom of your hub. Then use capsule ordering to move it to where you want. Then click "reorder now" to keep it at that location.

    Click edit to open the Amazon capsule. Then the easiest thing is to choose keywords and have Amazon find things for you.

    Once you do it, it is easy.

      Well my attempt to post a link like freelance didn't work. It looks like when I hit reply, I get to see the code freelance used. Looks like you added [url= stuff. Let me try this linking thing again.

      There is a lot of advice on http://hubpages.com/guide/overview

      Now I'm wondering how freelanceworld got a link in his answer. Let me see if this works. Here is a link I made up earlier.

    The Amazon module is the easiest way to add Amazon products to your hubs.  Some people get creative and use a Text Module and use one or two lines of anchor text to direct to a specific product. But when you do that you have to enter your entire affiliate code.  HP takes care of all of that for you with the Amazon module.
