    I'm extremely confused why I can't get the ASIN number to work on the Amazon link. It keeps saying that no such book exists. The only reason that I can think of is that Kindle isn't part of the program and that we are not allowed to sell books that the Kindle part of the Amazon arm is selling. The question then becomes, if Amazon is selling the same ebooks, how does one know which ebook is being sold under Amazon and which under Kindle.

    Unless it's something else completely.

    HELP!

      I have a similar problem.  It keeps telling me Amazon is not supplying a price for this item so it cannot be displayed.

      Like you, it's my own book and I can see the price on the Amazon page as clear as day.  Annoying.

        Marisa, that's exactly right. It gives me the identical message. I've tried to contact Amazon about it as well.

    There is no commission on ebooks.  So even if you could sell them you would not earn anything.

      Unless it is her ebook...  I had a hub published just for that reason and sold just under a 1000 copies of my kindle book from the Amazon link I posted.  I no longer have it up because the info in the ebook became outdated after the first Panda update.  It was on a topic on how to effortlessly get to page one of Google without creating a single backlink.  Google made a huge algorithm change that made that tactic pretty much obsolete.

        Well, about a year ago, I tried to link some of my ebooks and that didn't work. So how does one sell one's own ebooks using the Amazon link?

        I just added a kindle book in an Amazon capsule as an experiment to a hub in progress. It worked, but it was a book that is also sold in hard copy, and the hard copy price appeared.

          Yea, I just added the link to my kindle book on my 'Guide to Backlinks' hub just to test it out and it shows up just fine and I only used the ASIN number to add it.  Mine is only available in Kindle.  I'll take it down soon as the main hook is much harder now than when I wrote it.

      hmmm ...

      Yet, if I open my amazon affiliate earnings dashboard I can see an entire section dedicated to and labeled as "kindle ebooks"

      Yes, you can earn from ebooks on Amazon. (if .20 to .84 cents is earning)

      Kindle Subscription products are excluded from AA - that is all.

      I would guess temporary glitch or operator error is at fault here. Its not systemic, I have kindle books selected and displayed on Hubpages and have even earned commission from them in a time long past

        Okay, well I don't know what I'm doing, but I can't seem to get it to work. It keeps saying that there is no such book. Let me try that again. smile

        Many thanks.

        How does one know if a book is a Kindle subscription book?

          sunforgedposted 6 years agoin reply to this

          Books aren't. (or ,At least I've never seen one)

          The subscription service is used by blogs and magazines and journals:

        Yes, apparently I am behind the times and they changed that policy.

      Please clarify this response.  Do you mean there is not commission as an affiliate?

        That was the old policy.  I see now that they have changed it.  So yes, you do get commissions.

    Would you mind sharing the link so I can see if I have the same problem?

      You mean of my book or the ebook I was trying to write about?

      1. psycheskinner profile image84
        psycheskinnerposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        The ebook that was causing a problem.

        But you should  never miss a chance to promote your own book either smile

    I hope you don't mind, I'm going to repost this query with a different title as I think staff are assuming it's not a technical problem.
