I wrote a recipe hub and wanted to add some recommended cookbooks at the end. I created an Amazon capsule and selected the cookbooks. When I previewed the capsule, it said "No Amazon products found." I deleted it and tried again, this time letting it use keywords to select products automatically. I got the same error. How can I fix this?
This issue has been resolved.
Thank you all for your patience!
@Pamela This should be fixed now.
Are you still having issues with the Amazon capsule?
If so, can you provide a URL for an example Hub?
Have you tried refreshing the page and/or clearing your browser cache (instructions in following URL)?
Nope, not fixed. Every hub I've gone to is showing the no products found message. thanks
Thanks for letting us know. Still catching up across the site and should be resolved soon.
Sometimes this happens, not sure why. I just edited one of my hubs and noticed all of my Amazon capsules said, No Amazon Products Found. I looked at another hub, and did not open it to edit, and the Amazon products are showing.
If you search the forums this issues has been happening on and off for several years. It's to do with how HP pulls the information for each product.
Thanks for the reply. Sounds like it. I viewed a published hub and the Amazon products showed up just fine, but I can't add any to new capsules while editing. I will make a note to try again tomorrow.
I noticed the same thing on a hub posted last night, though I didn't have any problem with the products showing last night. I went to edit a misspelled word I discovered a minute ago and I saw the "no products found" message. My other hubs seem to be okay though.
Now it seems to be affecting published hubs, too. Of course I got a moderator e-mail saying my hub needs revision because it is "incomplete." How is the fact that HP's program isn't pulling info from Amazon properly my fault?
Just realized that HP unpublished my hub simply because it was missing the Amazon products. Jeez!
I sure hope they don't start unpublishing all the hubs missing the products. I just checked my other hubs and it seems they are ALL now missing Amazon products. I do NOT want to have to go in to remove all the capsules as I have 120 hubs. That's way too much work, to only have to add them back in when the problem is fixed. I've also had another one waiting to be published but I suppose I'll just publish and hope nothing else happens.
It seems there are quite a few problems happening on the pages in the last few days!
Please Contact us with the URL of your Hub and we'll take a look. Thanks!
Hi Camille, No Amazon products show on any hubs. This has been happening since last night. Even on previously published hubs.
Yup, none of my published pages are showing amazon products.
I just went in and deleted all of my Amazon capsules, as I don't want ALL of my hubs marked as needing revision. I'll just have to add them back when the problem is fixed.
If you decide to try again -try it with just one keyword.
I have been having the same problem all day. Quite new to hub pages so wasn't sure. These forums are really helpful. Sam
Checked with Amazon Associates and my account is still active, as well as, Hub Earnings shows active.
Twelve to eighteen hours of down-time, on this feature, cannot be a good thing, for the global Hub Writers in general, and for myself especially because it is my only revenue source on Hub Pages.
I also have hubs with no amazon products found....no time to check all the hubs..hope it could be solve soon
This is a serious issue. This is going to cost people a lot of money if it is not sorted out soon.
True. Which begs the question "Why is there always something?"
This kind of glitch should not be happening! There is no other site-wide element that should interfere with the Amazon API, be it JSON, PHP or ROR. I know technology and it can be a fickle thing, but the best rule of thumb is true, "If it isn't broken, do not fix it. If it is broken, fix it once and not have to fix it again."
I'm just aggravated that they unpublished my hub because it said "no Amazon products found." I have no control over that whatsoever; the products were listed when I published the hub. Now I've lost page views because it took them about 12 hours to review the hub and re-publish it.
There is no way I would have the time to go in and delete Amazon capsules from all of my hubs. Hopefully this will be resolved soon. At least the staff at HP seems to be aware of it and are working on it.
I just checked 3 of my Hubs and the Amazon is back. I hope it stays that way cause I'm ready to publish a Hub and I want to use Amazon products; very important.
I haven't been able to add any Amazon products for three months now. I gave up.
You must not be doing something right in the process. Have you ever been able to load amazon.com products?
We are unaware of any current issues affecting the Amazon capsule.
I suggest looking over the Learning Center.
This problem is NOT fixed for me.
My hub at http://mattforte.hubpages.com/hub/Futur … ology-2013 has several Amazon capsules, none of which are showing up at all. I just formatted my HD and installed Windows 7 (from Vista) so it's not a cache problem or anything of that sort. I deleted some capsules and tried to re-add them, changed products - no go.
Even when I just try the "preview product" button it simply changes my URL to an item number, and doesn't preview the item.
(I'm having this problem throughout my entire account, I just used the above hub as an example so it can be checked out...and I get 75% of my traffic from that hub so I know I'm missing out on potential profit here)
Are you still having issues with your Amazon capsules?
I just checked out the Hub you mentioned and I see multiple Amazon capsules that are all displaying products.
Yes and no.
I found that AdBlock blocks amazon capsules. It even blocks the "preview" within the Amazon capsules. This concerns me because a LOT of people use AdBlock, and I believe it's native in recent builds of Firefox. Might there be a workaround for this in the near future? I can see Amazon products on many other pages around the web, just not HubPages. They aren't obnoxious "CONGRATULATIONS, YOU WON!" ads so I don't think I'd have any moral implications against working around AdBlock.
I would have responded sooner, but for some reason my forum privileges were removed...I wasn't told why - and I hardly ever come to the forums o.O

Hi,On two of my three published hubs there are two ads for Amazon that were functioning earlier today but now are not. I have closed the capsules and put them in again but that has not worked. I refreshed the pages and that did not work. I also checked to see if there was a notice saying that my...

Amazon says I need to redo most of my products, and I don't know what happened as the codes were there. Is there a fast way to do this? Can you sign in to Amazon once and then go back and forth fixing the problem. Anyone had this issue?

http://hubpages.com/my/hubs/stats?categ … ule=AmazonFolks, we really need to make a concerted effort to delete (or at least not display) those Amazon capsules we know to be in violation of QAP.The above link will hopefully help.

What is up with this? I can't tell you the number of times I've had to redo, change or entirely delete my amazon capsules because of 'missing products' that aren't really missing. What is the issue here? I'm afraid to look at my hub pages, and afraid to not look at them as well. Your hub ends up...

Why would two hubs go from featured to not featured? I didn't make any sort of major changes to them. One has been featured since this summer and gets a decent amount of views.Thank you. It really doesn't make sense.
