I tried doing a general search and tried using the ASIN number, but no joy. What do I need to do to add an Amazon capsule?
Try using the url of the item. Find the item in Amazon and copy the url from the address bar, using copy and paste.
There is no reason that should work any better but you never know.
did you try entering the url of the product? the capsule takes both the ASIN and the url.
In most cases this is caused by ad-blocking software.
The ASIN # is the best way to go. Not sure why it would not be working.
It is risky to use the search option with keywords, because you can end up with some unrelated item down the line.
I found that if you post the URL, it picks out the ASIN#, but it still won't work. Maybe because I just signed up for Hubpages?
I notice that adding a comment or voting in a poll is slow loading this morning. I don't want to mess with any Amazon capsules to see if there is a problem on my end.
It sounds like a technical problem, and should be reported in this forum http://hubpages.com/forum/category/3001
Go to your Amazon associate page. Put ASIN there to see if product comes up. Amazon now does not allow us to send visitors to some products. If this is the case, you won't be able to pull the product up on you associates account either.
It is completely possible for you to put in a valid ASIN on this end, and yet still not be able to call up that product due to something on the Amazon end stopping it. There are a variety of Amazon-internal factors that stop some items from being offered via their API, and on our end, it doesn't make sense when that happens.
But it does happen. See if you can find the same product being sold by someone else on their site, as that sometimes fixes the issue.

So, this is the third time HP has snipped Amazon from my hubs. Every time one of my Hubs is edited by HubPages to add to a network site they snip any Amazon capsules on the Hub. The Amazon capsule is always extremely relevant to the topic discussed and is not spammy, yet HubPages doesn't seem to...

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...
