Hello: I'm a newbie, so please forgive if this is obvious, but I'm having issues importing items into Amazon capsules. There are two problems:
First, if I do a key word search, it gives me titles besides the one(s) I want. I cannot find a way to delete those I don't want.
Second: If I go to Amazon.com to look up each item and then paste the ASINs into that query box (each on a different line, as it says), it invariably finds only the first one, and says it can't find the others.
Ultimately, I relent and do a separate capsule for each item, but that's extremely tedious...and, at times, the search tool will find something in a keyword query, but not the same product with an ASIN query.
If this is covered somewhere, I apologize, but can't find it. Is there a simple and fast way to populate these Amazon capsules?
You can choose the ASIN option and go to Amazon and hand pick the items that you want to feature.
Make sure to have the ASIN option clicked verus keyword.
Check that you have the option to show however many ASINS you choose up to 8. It's default at 4, but you may have checked for 1, which could explain why it's only showing the first ASIN that you enter.
Just an additional note: you can help screen out items on a keyword search by selecting a category. This way, if you're doing a hub on the touring the city of Chicago, you can select "books" and you don't end up with a Chicago CD in your capsule.
To those who helped me with my little problem with the Amazon capsule (Whitney05, Darkside, and Maddie Ruud), many thanks. and Darkside, I found your capsule hub very helpful...thanks for. Thanks to all your help, i do think i've got it figured out.
You can also put a minus sign in front of keywords to screen out some items returned by a keyword selection in both the Amazon and eBay capsules.
Your techniques are wonderful. It did work well. Thanks

The nice thing about the new Amazon capsule is that it displays the description text in the same size as the rest of the hub. This can be beneficial and may turn into better sales. So I reorganized one of my hubs,...

Had never done a “sales” hub before so decided to try. Have tweaked and tweaked this hub but it still keeps on being not featured due to quality. Getting a little T’d . . . http://geminifox.hubpages.com/hub/Green...

I tried to add an amazon capsule to a hub the other day. Hm. No results. In fact, a search on "book" turned up no results. Very interesting. The hub tool must be broken.Later, I went to check on my Amazon...
