Okay, I've said this numerous times in numerous posts recently, because it's true, but I've recently come back to HP after a very long absence and have discovered a lot of changes. One change that has nothing to do with HP, other than being somewhat of an income source, was that my Amazon Associates account was closed. I thought I'd reactivated it, but just found out tonight that I can't do that. I had to apply for a new account. Okay, did that. When I added my new Associate ID to the HP/Amazon configuration page is when I became confused.
The text suggested I continue, so I did. My impression was that I was accepting the Amazon Associate ID rather than the HP Amazon program, however, my new Amazon Associate ID is not displayed and some other hpnumber is. So, I'm guessing I accepted the HP Amazon program instead, right? What happens to my Amazon Associate ID then? Especially if no sales come in because of the hpnumber? Or are they linked somehow? Will the hpnumber remain active even if no sales are recorded? Instead of closing within 180 days like the Amazon Associate ID threatens to do?
honestly, mine was closed after there wasn't any incoming or outgoing funds in my amazon account.
But it came back again in 2016, I don't know why either...
Most of us don't use our own Amazon account on HubPages. One of the new things introduced while you were away, is that you can now use a HubPages' subsidiary account, which lets you earn a higher percentage commission.
Yes, I noticed that and that is what is confusing me. Because it seemed I had to sign up for the amazon associate ID in order to activate the hpnumber for amazon,
so would you guess that since I have the hpnumber rather than the unique amazon id that i "created" that I did indeed sign up for the hp subsidiary account?

*apologies if in the wrong sub-forum*It's a very very simple question. I'm not supposing the answer is equally simple. I'm kinda hoping that if an answer is forthcoming, no one is (HP team/hubbers) going to say 'if you...
