Should my Amazon linked products be in dollars or pounds?
I am not entirely sure whether the HubPage membership and audience is largely USA or UK, though I know it serves both. My Amazon linked products (mostly books) are shown in dollars, but when I check my pages I find the automated Google ads are all UK based. This is more a question about cost and convenience for readers, as a UK on-click will find the cost of Amazon products from the USA more expensive (cost of p&p for example). I have both UK and USA Amazon Affiliate codes, but not sure which is best for HubPages.
Hi, only the amazon.com affiliate code will work with hubpages. I made the mistake of using my amazon.co.uk code and it took me a while to figure out that it was not doing anything!
Most of the HP traffic is from the US anyway, so while we miss out on the UK sales you should still get some from the US. I have a hub written on it if you want to have a look.
I've always wondered this question and have just signed up for the .com but realised I can't get paid in pounds, just dollars. How do you receive your .com earning? Do they convert it into pounds for you?

I thought my UK affiliate ID was working fine with HP as long as I chose amazon.com based products - seems I was very wrong! You do not get credited with any sales. If you only have a UK affiliate code, you need to apply to amazon.com for another one, which I have just done.

One thing that 'annoys' me, is that when I use the Amazon and eBay capsules in a lot of my writing I feel maybe I should rip them out because they're both the US Amazon and the US eBay and I'm writing (especially for the travel contest at the moment) about places in my local area.So, I think the...
