There doesn't seem to be an actual number, but it's best to keep them to a minimum.
You should have at least 50 words of text for each Amazon capsule in your hub. The capsule should only have products which are relevant to your article.
If you watch your tips box to the right when you have done a hub, you may see a message about capsules. What it boils down to is 50 words per capsule. But, the warning is about when you have met the words requirement but have a string of Amazon products, rather than having one Amazon Capsule per text capsule. There isn't a rule that states you can only have one Amazon capsule per text capsule that I have found.
Thanks for your reply Snakesmum. Does this apply for both poetry and professional articles?
It's a standard maximum limit for all Hubs. However, in practice you will use a LOT less than that.
Remember, you don't get paid when people click on an Amazon or eBay capsule, you get paid ONLY if they buy. Random products with pretty pictures can be very enticing for readers - but if they leave your Hub by clicking on an Amazon ad, they're gone and may never come back to see what else you have to offer, or to visit your other Hubs.
So, be very picky about whether or not you use Amazon/eBay capsules and only do so if your text is likely to persuade the reader to buy. Ideally, you should be able to write a recommendation for that particular item.
Also, be aware that all links in Hubs, including products, must be directly related to your topic. If they're even vaguely unrelated, your Hub may get unpublished for unrelated links.
In practice, I wouldn't expect poetry Hubs to be good candidates for product capsules, unless you're selling poetry anthologies.
I'm guessing you're an ex-Squid? Welcome! You'll find a couple of Hubs on the slider on my profile that might help. The one about Flickr would be relevant to you.

When I write a personal recommendation in the 'description section; on my Amazon capsule, it doesn't seem to be appearing as it has in the past. Will this appear, after publication?

This will probably get me hunted down and shot, but here goes…When I first started here, I plastered Amazon capsules all over the place; each and every one of them 8 products long. And then two more 8-mile long ones tacked side-by-side after comments.This lasted for about my first newbie month....

I posted a new Hub this morning which included an Amazon capsule with 8 or 9 related items in it. However when I went back to look it over after publishing, the Amazon capsule was not showing up, there's just a blank space where it should be.When I went into "edit" mode I can see the...

I have been updating my hubs, but almost all of the amazon capsules have been snipped (even if there is only one on the hub and it is directly relating to the article). I see that HP is limiting them, but is there a definitive rule that is being used to snip out the products capsules? I...

I don't know what is going on with my articles lately, but every time they edit them, my amazon capsules are removed. Once they remove the amazon products, they publish it and feature it. I don't understand why this is happening to my articles. If they are going to remove the amazon capsules, then...
