    How about adding a new commission junction module. Same as amazon but you can pull in products sold in commission  junction into your hubs.

    May be modules for a few other affiliate vendors.

    With Amazon or eBay, you get access to lots of products via one program, but Commission Junction has thousands of affiliate programs that all need to be applied to separately. 

    That seems like it would be incredibly complicated to arrange for that to work via HubPages.

    relache good point. I was thinking other options, like for me my e-bay application was rejected (for whatever reason) and so my only option is amazon. I would like more money making modules though.

    The problem with having a module for any one ad network is the problems that would cause with:
    - people not being accepted
    - 1001 questions about how to use the different ad network features in the module

    But, in my opinion, the biggest issue would be that you'd write hubs, include a module to products ... then those merchants would stop working through CJ, so you'd end up with broken modules all over the place.

    Google, ebay and Amazon will always fill the module slot if you've used generic keywords.  Books tend to be around years, so Amazon will mostly be able to work even with specifically chosen books for years/forever.  CJ advertisers are fleeting.

    I think a better solution would be to either allow popshops feeds or emulate the popshops model.  You can use data feeds for literally millions of products.  The problem for Hubpages would be that they would need to also be members of any affiliate program that they allowed.

    Maybe if they limited it initially to a few broad scope vendors like Netshops (or whatever they call themselves these day Hayneedle or something like that) or CSN stores, which both represent a large number of online storefronts, or simply a few larger vendors like Target and Sears, or Home Depot.

    Amazon is great for the broad scope of offerings, but the short cookie life makes converting high dollar items tougher, and the analytics is extremely weak.  For any commissions all you can tell is that it came from Hubpages.  Ideally, with a model like popshops, you can tag the page with an ID, so sales can be tracked to a single page if you want.

    I agree, I think another single vendor that sells across a wide spectrum of products would be a great idea. And they really should make sure that they are Hubpages friendly and willing to accept on the basis of hubs.

    An affiliate program with longer cookie duration would be fantastic. It would also be great if they were "New York Friendly." Meaning if a state passes an internet sales tax law - they don't automatically throw the affiliates in that state out. There are easy fixes to comply with an interent tax law and keep affiliates but Amazon refuses to do this.

    Honestly I would think Hubpages would already be looking into this. They live in a state that considered an internet tax law last year. And given the large number of Hubbers that are frustrated with Ebay, it seems that they are contraining their own income potentital.

      Yeah, I assume Target and Sears among others have enough presence in other states with all their stores that the affiliate tax issue is not an problem with theme
