How does Amazon Associates work? Do I need to copy the HTML codes of certain links onto my page? If so, How and where do I do this? In the Hub capsules or somewhere else?
Any help with people who already are knowledgeable about this would be much appreciated...
There is a specific Amazon capsule that you add to your hubs. After you put your Amazon associate ID into your affiliate settings all you have to do is add the capsule and edit that.
I also had a question about the Amazon capsule. When I click on a product link it seems I cannot add HTML code to the capsule. I have copy and pasted the text link in there and the product shows up on my hub but it does not look the same as it would with the HTML. Also, am I certain my ID is buried in that text link? Maybe a stupid question but where do I find the ISBN or ASIN? Sorry I may have gotten the exact letters wrong. They say you can put that in the product capsule...if you know it. I'm not sure where to find that info. Thanks for any help:)
Here's the Learning Center entry on how to use the Amazon Capsule.

Pedrn44, you will know that your Amazon ID is being used if you go to your My Account > Earnings page and see that you have an affiliate code submitted. If you haven't submitted your Affiliate Code, the link above gives you step by step instructions. The ASIN number is under the Product Details section when looking at the Amazon product you would like to use.
