    I have already been approved and have an Assoc. ID#, my problem is strictly cutting and pasting the code.  I just don't have a clue where or how it gets pasted into my hub.  Help!

    You don't paste any html codeat Hubpages, because you can't.....

    All you do is you take your Amazon affiliate id which will be something like   ishopatamzon - 20 and you put it in your affiliate settings under amazon.

    You add a amazon capsule to your hub then follow the pop open box when you edit that capsule. But first as waynet said you put your id in affiliate settings in your profile. After you see the item you want to add get the link to the item and add it to the amazon capsule. You can add up to 10 items per amazon capsule.

    Is the problem that you don't know how to copy and paste? That is what I am getting from your message above. If that is the case.

    You need to select the ID# --Do this by placing your mouse pointer (cursor) in the ID# and double click it. The ID# should be selected (highlighted). Now with your pointer still on the ID# right click your mouse. This gives you a menu (list) to choose from. from the menu click on copy. It will look like nothing happened except the menu goes away.

    Now back in your hub, where you are editing, you add an Amazon capsule and there will be a spot that asks for your ID#, click in the box with your right mouse button and click paste on the menu. It should show there.

    (sorry if I am too detailed, but I was uncertain to how much you needed.)
    I hope I was of some help.
