    Is it possible to sell those items (from Amazon UK) on our hubs ?? or is it just restricted to the US site ??

    The Amazon capsule only works with the US version of Amazon.  Any links you might put to Amazon UK could be done in the text of the Hub, but would fall under the regular limits of outgoing links.

    No.  You need to sign up for a US Amazon affiliate account and use that code here on HubPages, and use product codes from the US Amazon site if you are not using keywords.  I have a US Amazon Affiliate Account and a UK Amazon Affiliate Account.  I use the US one on HubPages, and the UK one on my hypnotherapy website and blogs aimed at the British audience.

    A lot of HubPages traffic comes from the US (set up Google Analytics and check it out), so it also makes sense to be aware of that fact and to include American words and phraseology where it is appropriate and for tags eg we say 'holiday' in the US its a 'vacation'

      I don't think this is true - I signed up for an affiliate account through the UK Amazon site and am using that to channel my Hub Pages earnings.  (Mind you, these stand at zero so far.)

        Not sure about this - when you add an Amazon capsule if you use keywords it brings up the price in dollars and clicks into the US site.  I just did an experiment with a specific product code off the UK site and it still brought the price up in dollars?

          I checked this again - if you take a product code off the Amazon UK site and put it in the capsule it will bring up the price in dollars and click you through to the US site.

          I don't know if the cookie would then work if a reader clicked through to the UK site from the US site - a more experienced Hubber might have the answer.

          Aside from this is the fact that Hubs (well mine do) tend to get more US than UK traffic

            I knew it did this (tried the same experiment myself LOL) but that's a separate issue from whether or not UK hubbers need to sign up with the US Amazon site.  My understanding is that they don't.



            I'd like to know the answer to that as well.

              What I do know is that when I contacted the Amazon UK Affiliates site, they advised me that the affiliate programmes were totally separate and that I would need a US account, which they sent me details of and I got set up in a couple of hours.  Maybe you should contact them and check it out?

        Empress,I'm sure you've read the other posts, but just in case:  sorry, you're wrong.

        1. EmpressFelicity profile image70

          Yes, I realise that now and stand corrected!  Have just signed up for a US Amazon affiliate account.  I'm amazed that Amazon doesn't give you the option of having dollars paid straight into your PayPal account; that would make far more sense than them sending you a cheque.

          1. Marisa Wright profile image95
            Marisa Wrightposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            Absolutely, it does seem mad.  Can you buy stuff on Amazon with Paypal?  If not, I can only assume they have no affiliation with Paypal and that's why they won't use them.

            Although Adsense won't pay through Paypal either - but at least you can get the money paid into your bank account.

              I've just looked on the UK Amazon site and they accept credit/debit cards and Amazon gift certificates only.  I believe that PayPal is owned by eBay so you're right; Amazon has no affiliation with PayPal.

    yes i use American products but i have used my UK code and it has set. Are you shore it matters?

      Best thing to do for a definitive answer is email the HubPages team and see what they say wink

    2. Marisa Wright profile image95
      Marisa Wrightposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Yes it does matter, you won't get paid if you use your UK code.

      You have the option of taking gift certificates (again, only usable on the US site) or a cheque.  It is a US dollar cheque and believe it or not, they do mail it to you.  It will cost you about 5 pounds to deposit in your account.

    1 more question.
    My hubs are usually about computers and hardware.
    If some1 were to buy a laptop off amazon but was shipped from best buy, will i still get the 4% ??

    Can i ever get rates above 4% ??(for such electronics)

    Has any1 emailed the hub pages team regarding this ?

    1. Marisa Wright profile image95

      Why would HubPages tell you?  The rules and commission rate are set by Amazon, not by HP.  Read the information on the Amazon site - there is a choice of two programs, I can't recall the detail but it's all there.

    I wrote a hub on this because I made the mistake of using my amazon.co.uk affiliate ID here on HP. It looks like it's working, but you won't get any sales!

      I wonder how many other non-US hubbers have made the same mistake as you and I did.  I certainly don't remember seeing anything about it in the HubPages guide (perhaps it's something which is worth including, given how many non-US hubbers there are).
