    Can we put Amazon capsules of products that are ours?

    I write short fiction and am hoping that my writing here will attract readers of my Amazon fiction.  If I just use a picture and a URL, Hubpages only allows 2 links to what they consider "affiliate sales."  I like the look of the capsules and have used them on a few of my Hubs.  Is it against any HP or Amazon policies to advertise our own Amazon products (products I am the creator of)?

    I've done it with my last novel, so I'm assuming it is okay to do.

    I've done it and seen others do it, so I hope that it's fine.  Technically, we would be getting double the royalties.  Before HP changed the Amazon capsule, my short fiction wouldn't be accepted.  I'm glad that it is.

    If the amazon capsule can find your product, then I don't believe there are any rules against including it in the hub. Yes, you are earning more royalties, but everyone involved is still getting paid. Amazon and HubPages take out what they need to from a sale, so you aren't doing anything wrong.

      Thanks!  There would be no way to trace who creates what and trace it back to their hub profile.  If I worked for Matel and built barbies, it wouldn't mean that I couldn't put a barbie capsule in my hub.
