I wonder how many hubbers would be interested in having Etsy capsules in their hubs, possibly tied into an affiliate programme as well if Etsy does such a thing.
As an Etsy seller myself, I'd definitely welcome it! Any thoughts?
Since Etsy doesn't have an affiliate program, I don't see this happening.
As an Etsy seller, how much of your earnings would you be willing to give up if they did have one?
Would it work on a similar basis to Amazon, with Etsy giving me a small commission on any stuff sold via people clicking on Etsy products in my capsules? I suppose a 5% commission would be reasonable. But then again, maybe that would have a knock on effect in terms of increases in the listing fees they charge to people who actually sell stuff on Etsy. Which means that I could end up losing out! What are your thoughts?
I think Relache is right. Amazon and eBay both have affiliate programs that you join, then you get paid a commission. If there's no affiliate program, then there's no way to get paid the commissions.
Basically, Etsy would have to set up a program first, then I'm sure HP would consider it.
Amazon already has new affilite programs caleed Audible.com and Endless. com, so Hub Pages would be better off adding these as affiliates first in my opinion. Web"meister" would have to add though since its not appropriate to paste code to source here outside of the affilites listed.
one of the joys of being an etsy seller is the reasonable listing fees, integrating a true affiliate program would add to my costs as a seller, im not even slightly supportive of that idea
You can integrate your etsy products into hubs using existing abilities, link capsule, text capsule, photo capsule! w/o sharing a commission w. anyone!

Amazon changed their affiliate program yesterday by cutting the payout for most affiliates by half or more. Has HubPages addressed how these changes will affect content providers here?

For my first hub I asked my mom if it would be alright for me to do a review of her book. She agreed and I wrote one up. I intended to post a link from my hub to her book on amazon, however, upon further reading I read...

Authoring Hubs is about sharing and spreading ideas. Most of what we do is word-based, and a capsule to show off related Zazzle stuff would be an eye-catching way to allow readers interested in those ideas to buy...

I planned to use ebay capsule on most of my hubs because they pay per click. As I don't have alot of traffic on my hubs and there are only 4-5 clicks per day on ebay capsules, but my EPC is always zero. I can't...

Is there any way to add a link to an Amazon product within the text rather than having to always use the Amazon capsule? I used to do that when I had my own Amazon Associates account, but I'm not sure if it's possible...
