    Hi Don, I think (but I'm not a 100% sure) that all amazon sales on HP have to come through that's why it's always in US dollars. I've found you cannot pick items from to put in your capsules because they don't show up. Says something like item not found.

    I do use my UK affiliate ID for so at least you won't need to get another account!

      Have you had any sales/clicks recognised on your Amazon links?  Only reason I ask is because I am an Amazon UK affiliate and depsite having entered my code in the Hubpages box and having links on several extremely popular hubs I am yet to sell anything.

        As long as your clicks are showing up in your amazon aff console everything is good

        Sales to clicks on amazon should be pretty low, but the commissions can be quite high

        its all about the voice and purpose of the hub - if they didnt come there looking to buy or find info about (top ten, product review etc) they probably arent going to buy just cuz they see an amazon capsule

        i get very little traffic to this hub: … rs-secrets

        But the people who go there are looking for an item, and as a result does great for amazon/ebay commissions (in ratio to views)

          That was what I was hoping.  Some of the Amazon links on my hubs are basically just for books where further information can be found.  However, some are very targeted to a specific product (eg … mps-Online ) and so I think this will get more clicks/sales, especially considering that the traffic to this hub is not insignificant.

        Well that's a very good question BristolBoy! I've just checked my amazon account and no I haven't had any clicks. I do have one hub that's geared up especially for amazon sales so I would expect to have at least one click from there.

        I will see what I can find out on the amazon site about possibly having to get a .com affiliate number and get back to this thread.

          Ok, our UK affiliate code will only work for sales through and so won't work here on hubpages! I've just signed up to for another affiliate code. What a bummer! Just think of all the sales we might have missed out!

    Thanks susana. Would be nice to be able to change depending on where most of the traffic is coming from.

    I found out on some forum last week that the US accounts for about 90% of the Amazon traffic/clicks/sales. The other locales share the remaining 10%
    I myself was using the, and apparently thats why i havent had more than a couple of clicks(let alone sales, & in months too!)
    As soon as i found out, i joined the US, and Hey Presto, i had about 50 odd clicks in just 2 days smile (compared to 5 clicks in 4 months i used to have).
    So if you want massive clicks which eventually can catch a few sales, yes, register using US as your locale. But do keep the as well, since its allowed to have them all.
