I Can't Get The Amazon Module To Work

    I've gone through all the steps with trying to get the Amazon module to display, but after saving the html nothing is on the Hub. In fact it says at the bottom, No Amazon product found." I have a Amazon account & the html works because I copied and pasted it to my web site and it displays there. Are you supposed to put something other than html code in field: Amazon URL or ASIN or ISBN: ??

      You need to log in to your Amazon account and copy paste the links to the product if you want specific products or use keywords to get the number of products you need.  Specific products are much better and more suited to the subject of your hubs.

      You pick the amazon capsule, then go into edit the capsule, choose either keywords or specific products that you want displayed on your hub. You cannot use the html code. If you choose specific products you have to go to amazon to copy and paste the URL. Hope this helps you.

      Seems to me like you are using the wrong method to insert Amazon modules into your hub. On HubPages, you do not insert HTML code. That method works on websites, but not here. Instead, you use Amazon capsules - available when editing the hub,- and these can then be configured to show specific products or a list of products matching your search criteria.

        I guess I'm still stumped, but this is a Amazon question more than a Hub question. Since you don't insert html code into the fields of the Amazon module on a specific product, where do you find the code to put in there on Amazon? I have a book that I want to display. I found the book on Amazon, but I don't see anywhere on the Amazon page where thee would be any  other type of code other than the html code. Where do I find the correct code on Amazon to put in the Amazon Hub module...Thanks again..

    Sklein, since I live in the UK I have had a similar problem in the past where it says 'No Amazon product found' this happened when I took listing URLs from the UK Amazon, maybe this is a similar issue? I then took listings from the U.S Amazon and it worked fine

    URLs (links), not HTML is what works.

      Where do you find them on Amazon?

    Navigate to the product you want to link to. An icon "link to this page" button will appear on the top left corner of the screen.

      Can you post a url. I don't see it. There is a "link to ANY page" under links and banners, but I don't see what you're talking about. This shouldn't be so tough.

        I hope some of the Amazon specialists will come and assist you; otherwise, search the forums and there are other threads on the topic.

            Once you have your Amazon capsule, try to navigate to the product you want to link to on Amazon.com, copy the URL to insert into the capsule. If the capsule displays the correct product, you should be in business. Sorry, that is all I can say to help.

                I just post a hub on how to do this or at least how I do it. It is called How to put Amazon onto your hubs.

                  Now I should have thought of that. Good job Susan! That's what I call making "Lemon aid out of lemons." I'll check it out when I have a minute. Thanks again for your help...
