      Charlie,

      Your code is used for a portion of the impressions.

      Full entry here.

      Amazon
      To earn, Amazon must be active in your Earnings Settings and you must feature Amazon products in your Hubs through the use of Amazon Capsules, or direct links in Text Capsules.

      If a clicking visitor purchases qualifying products on your share of the impressions you make 100% of the commission.

          Charlie,

          I just looked at your Hub and see your code in the Amazon capsules.
          That same code appears 50 times in the Hub instance I saw.

            Hi matthew yeah it is working now i went in to my amazon affiliate settings and added hubpages and change couple of other settings seems to be good now, Do you know why the code is slightly different ie tag%3Dchefstipscouk-20%26 when threw hubpages and  linkCode=as2&tag=chefstipscouk-20 if i link it?  I was not able to track what people click threw on before only on the ones i used as self made links hopefully that should work now too. thanks again

              We use the Amazon API for the capsules.
              I believe they are just two different ways to convey the same affiliate information.

                Cool thanks. And i must say what a great site hubpages is i have not been a member for that long but love it, thanks for making it easy and user freindly for someone like me that is dyslexic and not the most computer literate.
                Cheers Buddy,,Stuart
