    I'm trying to insert an Amazon URL for a specific product.  When I put in the URL and save the capsule, the capsule on the Hub says:
    "Amazon is not providing us a price for this item. Therefore it can not be displayed."

    Yet, the product is live on Amazon with a price.  How can I fix this?

      Happens to me all the time, especially with Kindle books.

        Another frustration I've encountered when using Amazon is sometimes the image of the product won't display and this text is given instead: "Image not available."  This happens when there is an image on the Amazon site but it won't pop in the capsule on HubPages.

    One out of the two products I was trying to display is now showing, but without an image.  It says: "Image not available" but there is an image on the Amazon site.

      Sometimes the Amazon website and API offer different information.
      In these cases, you may be able to find a different listing for the same item that does have the image or pricing information available via the API.

    Try inserting with the code instead? ASIN or USIN (Is that what they're called?) You know what I mean anyway

    Update on this:  I'm noticing it happening far more frequently.   

    I just checked some old Hubs, which were showing Amazon ads just fine.  They were all showing "Amazon is not providing us a price for this item. Therefore it can not be displayed."

    I've had to clear everything, start over, and find the same product using keywords.   If I do that, the product displays just fine.

    I'm having a problem with the Amazon capsule, too. Nothing happens when I type something into the boxes (direct URL, search, etc). I click the buttons and nothing happens at all.

      I just tested and the Amazon product capsule works for me in Chrome.
      Do you get a result for this code?

      Also, make sure you are not using any sort of ad blocking software.

        Thanks. It's working now. I had no idea I was even using an ad blocker. For a year and a half I didn't know how other people could preview their articles with ads in them because mine never showed...

        Guess it's time to go edit some white space, lol.
