Is there any limit on the number of Ebay capsules which can be used in a hub?
For every eBay or Amazon product that you have in your hub, you should have 50 words of text. So if you have, say, 100 words of text in your hub, then that means you can have 2 eBay products in your hub.
You should have 50 words of text per ebay or Amazon item. The reason for this is so that your hub isn't one big spammy page of adverts (as has happened in the past).
You should really be writing a minimum of 500 words, which'd equate to 10 ebay/Amazon items, although reaching the bare minimum isn't recommended and it's good to aim for 850-1000 words.
A hub containing 1000 words of text could, therefore, have 20 ebay Modules.
"Less is more": You'd be better off having just ONE ebay module and guiding the reader through your article to the point where they really want the product you're writing about, so that when they get to that one instance they click on it and go buy it - of course, that's in the ideal world and isn't something most people could achieve in most hubs.
I hope that helps.

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...

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?

I understand you've decided to take a cue from Squidoo and you've chosen to make at least one rule unclear on purpose. It's creating more work for everyone and alienating the people who produce the content you sell ads...
