Anyone have the inside scoop on the new Hubpages Amazon program?

    I ran across a couple of undated pages in the learning center (I think that's where I saw it) that there is going to be a new Amazon affiliate program. I'm sure HP has our best interests at heart, but I have some questions about how it will work.

    - Presumably, you won't need your own Amazon ID, as it will by HP's ID. So, I'm guessing, that you keep your original ID, but can no longer use it in HP?

    - How will the net commission compare to what you get as a direct affiliate? Again, guessing, that HP will be able to negotiate a higher rate, but then they take their cut, what are you left with?

    - Will Omakase ads be available (I've found elsewhere that those work well). These are contextual ads.

    - Will we still be able to insert individual products and use text links in our hubs?

    - If so on the latter, will there be better tools than we have now to choose or search for products? The Amazon capsule is rather weak in that department.
