Amazon Affiliate ID

    I have been on Amazon several times, and created a list of books that relate to my hubs, and some books that I just recommend or like. I get to list them on a format I like, and click save. Then it gives me code, which it says to highlight and paste? Where? In a new hub? My lists are never saved, and when I have the code copied I can't post it anywhere. I want to use the Amazon Affiliate, and feel frustrated as I've tried over & over, and can't do it. Now they gave me 2 affiliate codes, and keep changing my customer and affiliate passwords. Help!

    You can't use code here on HP. You can use an Amazon capsule, but that won't allow you to use your list. Two things you can do:

    1) Use Amazon capsules and create your list in there; or

    2) Create a link capsule and put the code's link in there. If you look closely in that code, you'll find a link that starts with http://, it has your Amazon ID in it and it ends probably either with a ' or ". Copy and paste that link and forget the rest of the stuff in that code. Note that you can only link to Amazon a max of two times per hub outside of an Amazon capsule.

    Thank you Irohner. I'm somewhat tech challenged. I really just love to write, and found Hubpages whilst waiting for a book I wrote to be published (I hope)! I wasn't trying to over promote my Hub. It just looks like other people's hubs have more ads on them, and I thought I was supposed to do more about putting them on. Not to worry! I'll just keep writing. I'm really loving this opportunity for creativity!

    You can put as many Amazon ads as you need/want on there. The only thing HP limits are links outside the ones in the Amazon/eBay capsules.
