    Amazon doesn't allow it. I assume that because there's a connection between being a buyer and being an associate that it'll just flag and remove it. Unless the ad served is not form your 60% of the ad impressions.

    Seeing as it's not going to do you any good you might as well buy from a fellow hubber.

    Amazon specifically forbids it, as DS said

    (although I have done it frequently in the past, when I didnt value the account - id rather have the account than a 4-6% discount nowadays)

    I havent seen the same with eBay ( i did google about a bit) but once again the tiny savings isnt worth any possible risk.

    Hook another hubber up!

    you can def click the link though, so that you can get the item id

    if you see something you like pop up on your hub, just search the product out on Amazon. com or I'm sure you can find it again and then cick away smile

    Under the old eBay TOS, you were allowed to buy through your own affiliate link - I remember checking it out.

    I notice that under the new eBay TOS, you're not allowed.

    Thank you very much guyz!

    I appreciate it.

    Now, it's clear.

    I will just have to look the stuff on

    I don't see a hubber here who has the same amazon products i have on mine hubs. I do would like to buy from my fellow hubbers.

    You can check my electronis and gadgets articles and also fashion and shopping online, those amazon products there are my favorite and would want to buy if you have it in your own hubs.

      Just find an Amazon capsule, it doesn't matter what the product is, and click through. Do a search and make your purchase, and it'll be tracked and attributed to that account anyway.

      Whether it's the Hubber or HubPages Inc getting the commission, it's good either way.
