Hi, I am currently attempting to sign up for the Amazon Affiliate program. I followed the step by step instructions that Hubpages provides, but when I try to imput the URL from my profile page, Amazon rejects it as an invalid URL. I've tried deleting the http, adding a "www." and nothing works.
Any ideas? I must be doing something totally wrong here.
That got me SO excited that the problem was fixed. So I went and plugged it in and....no go. It's still telling me "There was an error processing your request, please provide a valid URL". I am going to try a different browser altogether and see if that works. Who knows.
Thank you for your input and for trying to help me. I really didn't expect that much support that quickly!
Not quite sure, but some programs don't accept urls with a space in between like you have between Edward and C so I think you may have missed the boat, try and create another hubpages account with no spaces and then use the same amazon id!!
Well, when I went in to apply for the ID, it said I already had an Amazon affiliate account. I might have made one for Squidoo a while back. I never used it though. I assumed when I filled out the information it would give me my old ID.
Instead it just keeps kicking back that URL. So now I'm wondering if it won't let me use the same affiliate e-mail for Hubpages that I was obviously using somewhere else.
I know absolutely zip about this process, as you can tell.
Turns out I wasn't supposed to put the period after the C in the URL, even though its in my name. I guess that messes something up somehow.
Anyway, it worked and I am really grateful that you guys took the time to help me out. I think I am really going to like this community. I would actually go get an avatar if this shadow secret agent guy weren't so cool...
If you've been accepted and it's all sorted then its all good. I thought though if there is a period of waiting for the acceptance email and a human at the Amazon.com end of it checks to see who this http://hubpages.com/profile/Edward+C without the period is, then you could end up getting rejected again.
I didn't know that usernames with a period in it could be registered at HubPages. They might want to sort that out in case it makes the signing up to affiliate programs a bit of a problem.
Stumbled on this on an old forum thread. go to http://hubpages.com/profile to see a cool "quilt" of HP profiles. go to http://hubpages.com/profile/YOUR PROFILE NAME/map to see a cluster of your article...
