Help! My amazon status says 'SET' instead of active.. and has done so for 15 months (I wisely...
just realized...) Seeing as all my 45 hubs have amazon ads, I guess I have missed out on quite a lot of sales/clicks (not a single click has been registered from HP even though I have over 9.5k reads), seeing as I have actually earned money through adsense (which is ACTIVE).. doh! How do I get it to say ACTIVE?
Please help a fellow hubber in need.
Lovably unknowingly yours,
Hi - I am sorry to hear that you have not made any Amazon sales, but 'SET' is what it is supposed to say.
If you go to your amazon account (from the link beside it which says 'check your Amazon earnings') and log into your amazon account, you will be able to see the reports section on the right hand side - you will be able to interrogate this and check whether you have had any clicks). If you have not had a single one, it would be worth contacting amazon through their support email just to check that you have everything set up correctly but definitely, 'SET' is what it is meant to say.
If it is any consolation, I took me ages to make my first sale and then, only after checking out how other hubbers were doing it (check out some hubs by spaceygracey and take a look at the way she presents amazon products).
@Alison Graham: Thanks for your answer. Yeah, I might just do that, thanks. It is quite weird, since I have had clicks/sales for other webpages where I have amazon ads... but not a single one through hubpages. Peculiar.
Mine says the same thing, and for that reason I'm not running amazon ads on every hub anymore.

What does it means by "set" on the affiliate status? If I only get "set" for ebay and amazon...does that mean the programs aren't active for me? Did I just do something wrong if it's just "set" but not "active"? Or do I just have to wait?

About a week before I resubmitted my application to get my Google sense activated. At the time of submission of my gmail, I was immediately told that my gmail already has an adsense account. It surprised me a great detail.I proceeded with the application though - and in couple of hours or so I was...

My Amazon affiliate status is "set." Will it become "active" when someone makes a purchase?My AdSense status is "active," my Amazon status is "set." I haven't done anything differently in the settings. How do I get my Amazon status to be "active?"

Just curious, why is adsense marked as 'active', but all other affiliates as 'set'? What is the difference?If all are active, shouldn't they all say active, or just say active for whichever affiliates are active.If waiting to be confirmed or whatnot, say 'unconfirmed' in the status field.

On my affiliate settings I have my Google that shows as active under the status. My Amazon has my affiliate code, but the status reads Set. It was set thru my blogsite. Should it not read active as well? Do I need to do something to set it up for HubPages?
