I'm new and would appreciate some help.
I got my Amazon ID and pasted it into my affiliate section, all is well. I don't see any Amazon ads on the site though, do they generate automatically or do I have to go into the amazon site and choose them? If so where do I put the code?
Also, I created a capsule by clicking the amazon icon and selected a few relevant book which appear on the page. Do I get paid for these if sold?
Please help as you can see i'm a little confused.
Thanks for everyones help but when I click on Amazon icon to create a new capsule, I don't see where I can put in the text code. All I get is the chance to enter keywords or search for specific products??!
Welcome to HubPages, MD you will get paid a percentage of the sales. Use the 'text' code when finding products to put in the amazon capsules. hope that helps. Add capsules to your Hub and click 'reorder now' which will save your settings and layout.
The ONLY way to make money with Amazon on Hubpages is through the use of Amazon capsules.
All the ads placed in the ad space on Hubs is from Google Adsense.
Copy the 'text' code from amazon and paste into the amazon capsule ...while in EDIT mode it auto converts to a ISBN code. click SAVE

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?

The nice thing about the new Amazon capsule is that it displays the description text in the same size as the rest of the hub. This can be beneficial and may turn into better sales. So I reorganized one of my hubs,...

I have had a hub on this site for several years that only contained TWO eBay capsules. Today, they were "snipped." What is the point of partnering with eBay if HP is going to interfere with...
