I was wondering if it's possible to have a feature in which we can tell which Hub made a specific Amazon sale, kind of like we have with the eBay sales. It'd be handy and satisfy much curiosity.
We currently have no plans to change the way that Amazon sales are tracked, but will keep this in mind for future feature development.
Unfortunately, Hubpages only allows the one tracking code for all your Amazon ads.
The other thing is, people who click on your Amazon ads won't necessarily buy that thing. If they buy any number of other things within 24 hours of the first visit (from your ad), you still get the commission from whatever they bought.
Sometimes you can come out way ahead, if they buy something really expensive, compared to what was in your ad. I've had that happen.
I can generally guess which hub made a sale just by looking at the products that are shipped. 'My earnings' (from beneath your user name) then 'Amazon Reports' gives a full list. Sometimes there's a surprise that seems completely unrelated to any hub I've written, but I accept those surprises as one of life's mysteries.

I am realizing that sometimes up to 2/3 of my audience is using smartphones to access my hubs, yet 90% of my Amazon sales are from desktop/laptop/tablet users. This makes me think that a lot of smartphone users are simply not scrolling to the right or perhaps they are not motivated to spend because...

Now that we are 'all in this together' so to speak with the new HP Amazon program, it is in all our interests to get as many sales as possible, as we will all benefit.I'll start.If your hub is all about cleaning carpets, for example, a hub entitled How to Clean Carpets may encompass all if your hub...

I have a question for those of you who use Amazon in your hubs. Let's say that you are writing a hub with a list of different products. Do you think it's better to put all the amazon stuff at the bottom of the hub, all in one place, or to spread the ads throughout the hub, with one ad per product?...
