Since I no longer earn any money from E-Bay, i was wondering how many people have considered removing the E-Bay Capsule in favor of an Amazon one. I think I am correct in assuming that I can insert more than one Amazon one if I don't use more than one ad per capsule!
I removed all my eBay capsules this week for that very reason; Oct. earnings were zero. Not a single penny. I don't need or want a bunch of ads hanging around that produce no income.
Yes, you can add Amazon capsules. Consider carefully if they are likely to produce any sales, though, and do not use them unless you feel they will.
I had considered it but my eBay earnings just spiked so I change my mind...lol.
If your eBay capsules aren't making money, it means they aren't generating sales. While it's certainly *possible* that switching to Amazon will result in slightly more sales, I don't think you are going to see a huge difference. You may be better off just removing the capsules all together from Hubs where the products aren't very relevant and where the Hub's visitors aren't likely to arrive with the intent of purchase something (e.g. Gift Ideas for a Six Year Old Girl or Vintage Norway silver guilloche enamel brooches and pins).
That's what I've done. In some cases I couldn't find an equivalent Amazon product, in which case I just haven't bothered.
As Paul says - if your eBay capsules have never made money, then replacing them with Amazon capsules probably won't help. Both eBay and Amazon capsules need to be directly relelvant to your text, otherwise they achieve nothing - except to distract from other advertising. Readers are unlikely to buy unless they arrive at your Hub with the intention to buy. To give you a couple of examples:
You have Amazon ads on your Hub about butterflies, all of them irrelevant. The book about butterfly photography and the macro lens would be relevant IF you gave advice about photographing butterflies in your Hub, and had a reference to butterfly photography in your title. Otherwise they're very unlikely to make sales.
Likewise, you have an ad for a shopping trolley on your Hub about Parisian markets. It's a nice segue, but unlikely to make a sale. You'd be more likely to sell a travel book on the Parisian markets.
eBay capsules used to pay per view...I had regular income from all of them, and switched all of my Amazon capsules to eBay. That no longer seems to be the case, so everything will be changed back to Amazon - no contest.
I keep a few eBay capsules up, just in case. I don't expect much, but nothing ventured, nothing gained.
I'm in the process of removing mine, no earnings for October. I will leave a few on just in case I get a lucky as Cardisa. I hope so, LOL.
Most of my former eBay capsules were displaying stuff that was selling for 2 or 3 dollars. Yet another reason why I've been deleting them. Just not worth it.

I am confused by Amazon capsule use. The first time I used it, it was deleted and I found out it was because I didn't actually use the item myself. Okay, makes sense.A couple of days ago I added a capsule to my article because it related to the article and I use the item. I even explained how easy...

Gave it up and removed my remaining eBay capsules. I guess my hubs just aren't suited for them. Might give it another shot if the Buy It Now option becomes available though.

I have never had this problem before. When I am editing my hub, my amazon capsules are there, but once I publish it they disappear. All of my other capsules are there. How can I fix this?

Are you using the eBay capsule?I can't get more than one eBay auction to show on one of my pages -- only one auction per eBay capsule.Squidoo allowed us to feature up to 5 eBay auctions per module -- is there a setting in HubPages that I'm missing?Thanks!Coe
