Which part of your amazon link to you put into the amazon module. I put my whole link in, and when i went back to the module, i saw there was only a code, so i only started adding the code part of my link. Tell me thats not wrong. I dont feel like doing it all over again.
Ruan, once again you're confusing the instructions on the affiliate site, which are intended for your own website, with the instructions for HP.
You can't use any of the HTML code. Search for the product you want on Amazon.com (not on the affiliate site) and copy the ASIN or ISBN code.
But they have to have a way of linking you to the product right? If you wana make commission that is.
You don't have to worry as long as your amazon code is written on HP's affiliate page, the same as your adsense code goes there.
Then when you add a capsule to one of your hubs the link to Amazon is automatic.
Put the ASIN or ISBN in
I've bolded it in this example
Yup, this is the code that i used. I just didnt know it was unique for each affiliate. Thanks.
It isn't unique for each affiliate. If you're using Amazon on your own website, you have to include your affiliate code in each product advertisement. On HubPages, your affiliate ID is entered on your Affiliate Settings page, and is referenced automatically by your Amazon capsules.
If you are putting specific keyword products in the capsule you put the amazon address of the particular product in the spaces provided or you can just press the link that finds products for you.
I normally have an amazon page open at the same time of the item I want displayed and I copy the address of that page into the empty link in the capsule.
