Hello Dear Hubbers,
I'm somewhat in confusion while placing Amazon or Ebay capsule in my hubs because I don't know well from which program I can be benefited much. Do people like to buy something from Amazon? or Ebay in most cases? Any trick?
Since I usually recommend books for further reading on the issue, Amazon is the natural choice. I do have a few eBay modules on a few hubs but I usually only use them when I can't really find the thing I want to recommend or show on Amazon.
There is no difference. What's important is, where can YOU find the best product relevant to your subject?
Unlike my hubs, your hub topics do indeed seem to be conducive to placing amazon capsules. I'll defer to others as to the nuances of such.
My viewpoint has changed over the last couple of weeks. I believe first, it depends on the motivation behind your writing. At first, I looked at using my articles to "sell" a product so that in turn, I would create a residual income effect. Now, however, I am concentrating more on the quality of my writing and trying to establish content that is both entertaining and useful. If my content motivates a reader to buy a related product, that's a bonus. I do a lot of Hub Hopping and am quickly turned off by the blatent sales pitch...As far as which is a better module to use, I am more inclined to use an Amazon product because unlike Ebay, more often the product that represents my content is more likely to remain constant. I also like that with Amazon, my readers can further explore the subject and are provided with customer reviews. Good question.
That's the point actually. I didn't get any sale yet through ebay capsule but amazon. So I think I should leave ebay if amazon product is available.
I only ever use Amazon. I'm not sure about Ebay, but I've gotten from 7 to 31 buys a month since August with Amazon. Good thing is that they don't even have to purchase what you've linked to. I've someone buy a $99 steak sampler, when all I write about is hair and crafts.
Amazon is better and keep in mind that Ebay now pays for direct sales and only if the bid is won during a specific time period.
So you mean, if someone clicks on your specific amazon product module and finally purchase another product from amazon then you'll be benefited. Am I right? If it happens then what you used? Amazon module or your own Amazon affiliate ID?
As long as they buy after clicking on your Amazon link, you get some money from it! I just use the Amazon modules. I do have an affiliate code, but I don't use it for anything - just put the capsules in my hubs!
That is correct. If someone clicks onto Amazon via one of the links in your Hubs, all of their purchases are credited towards you. A couple of times I got lucky when someone went on a shopping spree and purchased a lot of things from Amazon, rather than just one item. I think Amazon is a stronger brand, and as others have said, a sale is a sale, no bidding. Also, the product reviews help.
Sales from here are hit and miss. I just saw where I had 5 Amazon sales yesterday from my own web site. Nothing every from Ebay
beautiful mess: You only put your Amazon affiliate code in the earnings program spot or you join the HP amazon program and HP puts the code in their code they have for you. That is all you have to do other than add products with them. You can earn upward to 8.5 percent with HP Amazon program, and with your own affiliate account it starts at 4 percent then goes up according to number of sales that month.
I have listed Amazon product and then listed the same product on Ebay that is cheaper or if they have the same thing that is in used condition.
I use both modules, but I've found that I get more orders from Amazon. I guess it depends on the product and the reader.
I have never made a penny from eBay, but I do get the odd dollar from Amazon sales.

I noticed the last few days that Amazon capsules with Kindle books are displaying the following error..."Amazon is not providing us a price for this item. Therefore it can not be displayed."...but when I go to Amazon's sales page it has the price listed just fine. So for some reason it's...

I think I missed something here but have recently seen some discussions about in-text Amazon links v Capsules. How do you put in text links in, is there a special way? Do I just get the link that I get from Amazon when I go on there and choose the product? Or does this only work for people who have...

And why can't I add any Amazon capsules? If they're not allowed, then why are they even an option? The word count doesn't seem to matter because I can have over 2,000 words but have to remove them all before the hubs will become featured again. Either way, I like the color and...

I think that HP should discontinue Ebay capsules. The earnings are pitiful at best. Instead of Ebay I am sure that HP could use another advertiser/provider in its place.

Well, I haven't had any problems with the edit bot correcting spelling and grammar, but the HubPro editors do nothing but remove amazon capsules. I haven't edited many of my Hubs since way before the Bot and HubPro was a thing - but since I had to update Hubs because of the removal of float right,...
