I am SO frustrated trying to figure this out!!
I am trying to add my Amazon HTML code to my webpage - but WHAT webpage are they talking about?
Here are the steps I've followed so far: On the Associates page (Amazon) under Build Links and Banners > Site Stripe (then to the pop up menu where you highlight your HTML Code >> then where to from there? Where do I paste this? I am SO lost :-(
Hei! l`m equally new but l strongly believe help is around the corner . Do not give up.cheers Bro.
You copy and paste the product (ASIN/ISBN) into the Amazon Capsule.
Don't try and copy and paste the Amazon generated code into your hub.
I don't think we're on the same 'page' here. I'm not even at the point of selecting products yet. I am trying to set up my Associates link so that when someone clicks on one of my posted product links I get commission for the sales.
I see now. Uninvited Writer has the answer then.
And now for something completely different:
Can you send me your email address so that I can send you my address and then you'll be able to send me the bear.
You can now return to your normal hubbing. :-)
Have you added your Amazon account here?
I started a hub and now I want to add Amazon links to my hub, so I went to the Associates page and so far have followed steps as outlined in my first message, but when it says that I'm to post that lengthy HTML code (containing my ID so I get commission) I have no idea what webpage they want me to post it to.
to make it simple since I understand where you are coming from, you only need to paste the code they give you once into the affiliate box and from then on out you don't have to paste it again. Great huh?
I'm on the Associates page: Associates Site Stripe Options
Link to any page on Amazon using the Associates Site Stripe. The Associates Site Stripe lets you build your Associates links right from the Amazon page itself. The Site Stripe will appear at the top of every Amazon page and provides quick and easy access for building links, adding products to your aStore and even seeing your reports. The Associates Site Stripe is a convenient alternative to using some of the Associate Central linking and reporting tools.
Site Stripe Sample Image >> then when I go to the Amazon Online page and click 'Link to this Page' on the gray bar at the top, a small popup opens with a long HTML code which I'm supposed to copy onto my webpage >> but what webpage are they talking about?
I'm about ready to quit this :-(
** I appreciate everyone's help but I just don't think you realise what menu I am on. I've written to Amazon, I sure hope they respond, since I am really L-O-S-T ** Thanks again all **
Sara, you can't use any of Amazon's fancy banners or ads, or use their code. You can only use those on your own website or blog.
You feature Amazon products by adding an Amazon capsule to your Hub. You feature the products by opening Amazon in a separate window, looking for the products you want, and pasting their ASIN code into your capsule.
Hope that helps.
You don't need to do that here. You input the ASIN or the ISBN into the Amazon Capsule.
I think you should perhaps not attempt to use amazon via the amazon.com associate stripe at this point.
The amazon capsule within the hub creation process allows you to add products via a very simple interface
After you are more comfortable and not being frustrated if you wish to attempt to use the site stripe to select specific items
(which you could always do by using the keywords example you want to show dan brown books .."Dan Brown" if you want to show a specific book Dan Brown Digital Point ..etc)
selecting specific items using the ISBN:
say you want this book
think and grow rich, napoleon hill (once again those words would be plenty effective via the hubs amazon capsule)
page on amazon
http://www.amazon.com/Succeed-Grow-Rich … VZA6SNY30E
the html you would get from the "link to this page" is useless for hubpages all you need is to scroll down the page to the product details

copy just the isbn number and paste into an amazon capsule inyour hub..your done!
** I finally GOT IT!!!! I finally figured it out with help from all of you - THANK YOU all so much!!!! It's just so strange though because posting the URL into the Capsule is not at all what they say to do in the Amazon step-by-step guide.
So, would one of you mind looking at my Hub and see if it looks right to you (fingers crossed here). Thanks again to everyone **

Had never done a “sales” hub before so decided to try. Have tweaked and tweaked this hub but it still keeps on being not featured due to quality. Getting a little T’d . . . http://geminifox.hubpages.com/hub/Green...

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not...
