I have not made a single penny from Amazon and would like to hear your experience.
1. If someone (without an Amazon account) saw an Amazon product and click through an ad from your hubpage, Then the person went on to create an account and made the purchase later on. Will you (the hubber) get credit for the purchase?
2. If someone (an Amazon account holder) saw an ad from your hub, and bought an Amazon product, will you get the credit?
Is it better off to eliminate the Amazon links and let Adsense to take over?
If someone clicks through to Amazon from an ad on your hub, you get credit for their purchases over the subsequent 24 hours. If they put something in their shopping cart but don't buy it right away, you still get credit as long as they purchase in the subsequent 89 days. There are a few additional caveats, but that's the basic principle.
I took a look at your hubs, and I think you're better off with AdSense. To really make money with Amazon, you have to write sales-focused hubs around products.
It is possible to do both, of course! Some of my hubs earn well on both Adsense and Amazon. But this may be the exception rather than the rule!

I've started writing more articles here after not being so active for a year or so. One of the reasons I was discouraged from putting time into HubPages was the removal of Amazon capsules. This had a hugely detrimental...

Does the Amazon number of clicks change throughout the day? Not the orders, but the clicks. I thought they did, but mine hasn't moved all day. Thanks!

I was wondering, if someone clicks on, say a book that you have on your hub in an amazon capsule... and while they are there, they navigate away from that book, but they buy another one somewhere on amazon. Does that...
