I am a little confused about receiving payment from hubpages. On Squidoo when people bought products from Amazon, some money for the purchases was given to me. I have gone into the setting pages and set up a connection to amazon and thought it was working but then I saw that I have to be an amazon affiliate to earn money from the amazon ads..is this true? So I signed up for that program but I have nearly 100 hubs, do I have to sign up each one? is this actually even necessary at all? Will I earn as I did in squidoo every time someone purchases from my site whether or not I am in this program? Where can I see purchases made from my sites through amazon? thanks for the help! Eliza
If you have your account configure for the Amazon earning program, then you receive 60% of the impressions for the Amazon product capsules in your Hubs. If a sale is made during your impressions, then you can earn from it.
There is a bit more in the Learning Center and FAQ.

And this blog entry explains the difference between the two Amazon programs.
Most people tend to opt for the HP Amazon program.

thanks for the reply. I have read through that first post you sent and followed those steps to sign up for the affiliate program. so I have to sign up for a Google AdSense account and also with the amazon affiliate program? these are two separate things and I need both?. I am waiting on the amazon affiliate program as I just signed up for that today as I said, but the Google adsense program rejected my application the first time and I don't really know why. The hubpages status says complete for set up but it also says not active and that I am earning no money.
Eliza, Do you have your own blog(s) at all as found Adsense was easier to acquire for my own site. Once you have a number from them you use it for all of your sites that way you qualify for the best Ads based on Google's overall opinion of you. You are not allowed to have 2 or more Adsense accounts. That said you can have a personal and as many business accounts as separate (and distinct) businesses that you own.
With Amazon it makes sense to have your own account only once you are making enough sales on your own account to qualify for the higher returns. Since you get 60% of what HP get if you use their account and that is at the HP rate which will be higher than yours unless you are making a ton of personal sales. Hope that is the answer you were looking for.

I'm kinda pissed and extremely dismayed. I've been with Hubpages and Amazon Associates for 5 years now and haven't made a dime with Amazon the entire time. I've reached out for help numerous times and not a single person told me that I have to get my Amazon links from the Amazon Associates website...

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...

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...
