Hi I was wondering how everyone ads their own affiliate link for amazon products. If I just add the ISBN into the amazon capsule, will i get the credit if there is a sale?
Just a bit worried that it isn't tracked?
If you have configured your affiliate settings correctly in 'My Account' - 'Earnings' - 'Settings' then when you use an Amazon module your affiliate code is inserted and you will get credit when someone clicks through and purchases something from Amazon.
Ok thanks for the reply. So you have to use the affiliate code not just the isbn number?
You have to add the isbn (or URL) into the amazon capsule to make an add, but even if you do that you won't be credited if you have not filled out the configure section livewithrichard references.
You don't put the affiliate code into the amazon capsule, just that section in "my account". Once that is done HP takes care of seeing that you get the credit.
I put the affiliate URL to the specific product from Amazon into the Amazon capsule. I also have the affiliate code set up in my accounts. Am I doing something wrong?
I don't think so…. from what i understand you can either add the specific affiliate code from your associates account, or just add the ISBN number if you prefer. Hubpages tracks it either way apparently
If you set up your affiliate code correctly here on HP then all you need to do when you edit an Amazon module is place in the url of the page the product is on, or the AISN found on that product page, or the ISBN found on that page. You do not need to grab your complete Amazon affiliate code every time you add a product. HP has set it up so all you have to do is add the above mentioned info and their system will auto attach your affiliate code to the product through the Amazon module.
When I edit an Amazon module I use the AISN unless it is a book then I use the ISBN. I don't use the url. Also, you can use the keyword option if you are promoting a broad range of similar products.

I am confused about putting a product on my hub. I can do the product, but if I try to imbed the description, it is HTML. I cannot find an answer at Amazon or in the FAQ here. I am a new associate. Thanks.

I'm kinda pissed and extremely dismayed. I've been with Hubpages and Amazon Associates for 5 years now and haven't made a dime with Amazon the entire time. I've reached out for help numerous times and not a single person told me that I have to get my Amazon links from the Amazon Associates website...

Hi all. I have set up Amazon Affiliate program on hubpages and featured Amazon products on a number of my hubs. Looking at it after a while, the link-type report in the Amazon account shows that no one has clicked on the products so far. I wanted to know whether this actually works, so I clicked on...

For my first hub I asked my mom if it would be alright for me to do a review of her book. She agreed and I wrote one up. I intended to post a link from my hub to her book on amazon, however, upon further reading I read it is generally a good idea to have one or two hubs already posted before I try...

*ARGH!* After having searched the help guides, FAQs, and old forum posts, I simply have not had any luck in finding an answer to my question about Amazon/eBay affiliate payments. If someone could answer this question for me, or perhaps provide a needed kick in the keister towards the relevant...
