"For the avoidance of doubt, with Your participation in the Amazon Program under HubPages, You will not have a direct contractual relationship with Amazon, the Amazon Associates Program, or any advertiser/merchant of Amazon. "
How is this legal and valid contractual wording when I actually have a direct contractual relationship with Amazon.com via my enrollment with their program, and I would continue to do so even if I signed up for participation in HubPages' in-house program?
Isn't this rather vague? Doesn't this leave the door open to some really horrible misinterpretation? Or abusive actions potentially?
Obvious irregularities like this that have kept me well away from making any changes.
It not only leaves the door open, it slams the jail door shut. Amazon kicked me out of their program for the second time because of no sales or referrals. I didn't know I was in Amazon's stand alone program because I am in HP Amazon program. So because I have been kicked out of Amazon a second time, does that mean I am also kicked out of HP's Amazon program?
And if HP keeps me in their Amazon program, isn't that a violation of Amazon's TOS for not having Amazon referrals or sales within 90 days?
It is a very sticky wicket when each has their own rules and contracts.
So because I have been kicked out of Amazon a second time, does that mean I am also kicked out of HP's Amazon program?
No, it does not.
You can use the HubPages Amazon program without an individual affiliate account with them.
You also don't have to worry about making sales in 90 days with the HubPages program.
This blog post by Marina does a good job of explaining the differences.

We are looking into making wording changes to make it clearer.

I've searched around for answers about putting up aff links, and my concluded understanding is we can add no more than two links that point to one particular merchant, so I thought I could use for example multiple linkshare links as long as no more than two pointed to the same site. But my new...

Hi,I have other accounts here (this is my forum account). So far in the two days of Amazon earnings reports in the new HubPages-linked Amazon products, I only see products listed that I directly linked to. Usually I earn commission from products that were bought using my affiliate links...

If you are an Amazon associate and order items for yourself, under your Associates ID, Amazon does not pay the commission and may even ban your account. I have found nothing here about those who order Amazon products for themselves, from their own hubs if they are part of the Hub Pages Amazon...

I'm trying to sign up for the earnings programs and can't because I don't have a Google AdSense account. I applied for one a few days ago but was rejected due to "insufficient content". (My account has 106 hubs, some of which do look sparse after the import.)While I'm...

I've just started to notice the MSN ads on my Hubs. Ok, I'm new and I miss stuff a lot but they didn't seem to be there before. Are these a source of income for Hubpages alone or do Hubbers get a slice of the action? If so how?
