I have joined amazon through hubpages for my hubs. I now want to place amazon ads on blogspot. My amazon affiliate ID has hubacct and 6 numbers after that. Do I use just the 6 no's or do I have to apply for another number? Your assistance will be appreciated.
I use the same account. But I did create a different tracking ID so that I could track sales.
Does that mean you are giving them a 40% spilt; or does that split happen on the account level at HP?
HP don't do anything to your Amazon ID. They just display it 60 per cent of the time on your pages here when you use Amazon ads. If you use the ID elsewhere, HP are not involved at all.
Do they? I've wondered about that - when HP collects the earnings, at 8.5% no less, how is it MY tracking number being picked up by Amazon?
My Amazon capsules are producing either a hubpagesxxx-20% or hubpages-20%. Neither is my tracking number from Amazon - that one never shows up.
I do not use the HP sharing 8.5% thing (not sure what it's called). For that I'm guessing they have a system that generates a unique tracking ID for every account so they know what sales are going through and there's an automated system that gives you a share of the cut.
Amazon does allow big publishers to have more than a 100 tracking ID's.

*apologies if in the wrong sub-forum*It's a very very simple question. I'm not supposing the answer is equally simple. I'm kinda hoping that if an answer is forthcoming, no one is (HP team/hubbers) going to say 'if you...

I have been trying to track this down for the last few weeks. Many of my Amazon Ads are using "hubpages-20" as the Amazon ID Tracking code. (My Tracking code is "chef...-20") This all started when HP...

I'm a bit behind the ball having been absent for a bit and my Amazon earnings have gone way down as a result, so I'm considering switching to the HP Amazon Program and am wondering if in fact most Hubbers are earning...

I tried to add an Amazon module to a hub and couldn't get it to work. I entered several different book ASIN numbers but nothing showed when I hit the preview button. Any assistance you can give me will be appreciated.

I know we're not supposed to discuss specific earnings, but for those who have been around a while, which ad program seems to earn more, the HP Ad Program or Adsense? I'm still undecided as to which one to use.
