Now that Amazon is promoting their own One Link integration and no service is required, will HubPages use it?

Having used a geolocation service over the past year on my own sites, I've noticed about a 15% boost in overall commissions. That being said that service also includes Germany, Spain, France, and Italy as well as Canada and the UK. That being said as Canada and UK are the biggest players here, it seems like a great idea.
I was wondering that. Have integrated it on my own site. Hope HubPages can do it.
It's certainly been a long time coming! Be nice if HP did start integrating it here although, there appears to be a shift away from Amazon.
I also use a plugin on my sites which changes the affiliate URL according to location. Trouble is, you have to use the long URL for it to work. Made quite a few sales in Canada, as it happens.
All I need now, is for non-US residents to be paid monthly by direct bank transfer. They do it with Amazon KDP payments and it amazes me that still send out cheques for affiliate sales.
I doubt this will happen because HP has a special deal with Amazon that pays writers about twice what Amazon affiliates make. Would hate to lose that benefit as it makes a big difference in income.
I don't think the current deal is a barrier. I'd expect Amazon to be quite keen for HubPages to take this on. After all, right now if a British or Canadian person clicks on an Amazon product, they're sent to the US site and they're not likely to buy there. It would be more money for HubPages, and for Amazon, and for us - win-win.

Hi all. I have set up Amazon Affiliate program on hubpages and featured Amazon products on a number of my hubs. Looking at it after a while, the link-type report in the Amazon account shows that no one has clicked on the products so far. I wanted to know whether this actually works, so I clicked on...

Since I don't have an affiliate to Amazon or adsense why does the violation list that I have too many of these? What is the difference between the two?I thought that you could have one amazon link per 50 words. Some of my pages have over 1,000 words and only 4 amazon links, and it's...

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 like to add in-text links when I'm talking about certain products as I not only think they are some of the most effective, but also some of the most helpful. What I don't understand is why there is a limit of 2 in-text amazon links whereas we can make a slew of Amazon links using the Amazon...
