I have just recently have tried to join up with Amazon.com and was denied because I do not have my own web site (yet). This maid wonder how many “hubbers” actually have there own web sites and do I really need my own site to use Amazon.com or have I misunderstood how to sign up with Amazon.com? How do others writers on the HubPages use Amazon.com with out a site? Thank you for your feedback for sometimes I can get confused on the best way to do things here, even after I read all the great hubs on how to use all the different tools. Thanks again!
I have 2 websites - one has Amazon products but I didn't put them on the website until a few weeks after I'd signed up with Amazon on HP. I'm sure your HP Profile link is enough for them to accept you.
These instructions should help:
I've had my own website for eleven years now. I joined the Amazon affiliate program before Google even existed.
I have Amazon affiliate on <URL snipped> and no problems with signing up once I jumped through their hoops. I have to admit, I have not tried implementing Amazon affiliate on Hubpages yet though.
I have several sites (5) but only use Amazon on HubPages.
Thanks for the quick responses, I still trying learn to do the all online thing...
many of us are still learning.
I've had my own web site before HP, but I do not any ads on it, at this time. I do have amazon on my hubs, but am not sure I'm getting clicks.
how do we know if anyone has clicked on an amazon ad?
You go check your stats over at the Amazon site.
I'm working on one of my own...at the moment...and trying to figure many things about...what direction i want it to go and what i want it to do for me...?
Currently I don't have my own website, but I have a blog. I applied for Amazon was back when I did have one. I think I even managed to get accepted to Amazon when I had a Geocities website. I think it was before Google too
I have a website, not very active, and not sure Amazon knows about it. I applied to Amazon a couple days ago, going through the link and following the instructions from HubPages. Go to my account, affiliate settings, click on 'edit' by Amazon. THere is a link for instructions and screen shots, and an application link.
I have multiple websites as well as some free blogger blogs I use for backlinks to hubs and websites.
I just applied for Amazon when I started with HubPages, but I believe I gave them the URL to my profile as instructed on this page: http://hubpages.com/help/AmazonAssociates.
It was hassle-free.
I have a few websites with Amazon on but I find I'm neglecting my sites since starting on Hubpages!
I don't have a website, but I sell my own book through Amazon Advantage. I don't recall having any any trouble signing up as an afilliate.
I have four websites currently, but I didn't have any when I applied to Amazon for HubPages.
Yeah I had numerous blogs and webpages scattered all over the internet and amazon snapped me up and made me their best friend...ok that last part was a lie!!
I have three but I really only use Hubpages. creativeone59
I do, but I don't do much with Amazon. I tested Amazon on a lot of pages and it just wasn't working for me, so I had a choice of making it work and finding out why it was unsuccessful, or binning it for ease.
So I binned it.
Amazon works well for some sites, not for others. Mine isn't the sort it works well with, so I prefer to either have white space or fill it with something that works.
My best friend is building one for me in her free time, and I will have my store branched out into an ebay store in the next few days..and Im serious now..I just have not had the time..and she works 10 to 10, so my personal page is getting done slowly
Thanks to every one for the feedback...I am new to this online writing thing so the info helps! Next question..let us say you Write/Create and Produce your own videos...does any one have any commits on using HubPages for an out let for them? (Since they are Original and all have been written by me. thanks in advance!
I have a website, but what does that have to do with being an Amazon affiliate? I use my website to promote my books and photograph.

I received a notice about being charged to keep my Amazon affiliate program active if I have no sales in 90 days. I'm sure others share this issue. Since I agreed to use Amazon under Hubpages program ID, I do earn more...

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?
