Hey there, I guess I joined HubPages a while ago, but I never have done anything with it. Oops.
Alright then on to my question, I have been reading some of the getting started hubs and am confused. Do I have to have an affiliate account myself in order to use Amazon or ebay capsules?
I am asking because I live in Colorado and due to the new laws here I can not have an account with Amazon. Hopefully our Colorado leaders will change the laws, and then I can once again have an account with Amazon. But until then I have to bite my tongue and muddle through.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
Those capsules can be used on Hubs without an affiliate account, however, you won't earn anything from those sales if you are not signed up with the affiliate programs. Any earnings just go to HubPages in that case.
I put those capsules up on my Hubs before I had my affiliate programs connected because I felt the interest and relevance they could add to my Hubs was worthy even if I wasn't earning yet.
I agree with what relache mentioned you do not have to have an account with them to use those capsules. You just wouldn't get credit for them.
Ok Thanks Guys. It is aggravating that I can't make money off the capsules but because I can not have an account with Amazon I guess I will just have to "donate" to HubPages. Ha Ha
I suppose, you'd have to use Google Adsense to make your bucks.
Kim, there's no need to add Amazon or eBay capsules if you're not signed up. Most people make more money on Adsense than on the other two, anyway.
The Road ahead for you young hubber will be difficult - however - fear not - for along the way you will meet the Hubmasters and they in their wisdom will guide you - when you can walk across the bed of rice without making a single sound you will be ready to walk in the world of Hubville on your own two feet - take care - take time and more importantly aim to be Hubtastic......read the signs along the way and seek the advice of the great Hubmasters when the light dims at the end of the tunnel.....be at one with your hubs....

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...

Authoring Hubs is about sharing and spreading ideas. Most of what we do is word-based, and a capsule to show off related Zazzle stuff would be an eye-catching way to allow readers interested in those ideas to buy...
