    Hello fellow Hubbers! I am very new to the site here and am curious about the earnings and how it works. In My Earnings Settings it has the option to configure a few different programs. Will I be able to accumulate earnings or $ even if I do not configure one of these programs?

    If no programs are activated, all earnings just go straight to HubPages.

    You have to activate Adsense to earn. It is best to activate the HP Ad Program also, it earns per impression.  You have to connect a Paypal account or you can't get paid.

    You can earn from Amazon and eBay too. How to really earn from those programs is pretty involved, might want to research that if you are interested, unless of course you already know about it.

      Hmmm... I am not familiar with Ad sense but will look into it now. Do i have to do the configuration where i submit my tax information and everything? That seems a little weird and confusing to me. It even asks for all my information including my SSN.

        You cannot earn anything on HubPages without Adsense - but don't worry about it for now, because you won't be accepted.

        Adsense requires you to demonstrate your skill as a writer before they will accept you.  That means you'll need to write about 20 Hubs first, and they all need to be "Featured".  Once you've built up that portfolio, you can submit an application.
