That's an interesting question. It was so long ago that Amazon was brought into the HubPages earning program that I can't recall what they said about using our own affiliate code.
The answer will probably be on the blog or in the HubPages announcements forum.
Click "configure" and paste your affiliate code in instead of the HubPages one.
The only option when I click 'configure' is 'deactivate the Amazon program'. If I deactivate it, I can see no option to use my own account.
The same thing happened on my account. Apparently HP will not allow you to have an Amazon affiliate link that they don't get a share of.
Therefore I quit using Amazon capsules
I use the same code on other sites but they don't get passed threw HP.
Apologies, obviously something has changed.
Have you tried using your own affiliate link in the hubs themselves, rather than the HP capsule or link?
You mean I have to manually re-enter every single amazon ad? Maybe I should just try switching off the amazon program and see if it goes back to where it was before I opted in. It would be nice to have a 'revert to your own a/c' option.
Something for tomorrow, I reckon.
It looks like you can still use your own Amazon ID but it means coming out of the whole HubPages earning program. It's not 100% clear but that's what I can make out.

Thx for that. Seems to be a one way street. You can enter the HP Amazon program, but you cannot leave.

Hello everyone. I have activated my Google AdSense account and also linked it to my hubpages acconut. But still nothing is to be shown in my earnings. Should we have a PayPal account to activate the earnings program? Or only AdSense account is enough.
