    How do I add Amazon capsule with my own ID?

    I had registered at Amazon and got my ID. I didn't register it at Hubpages. I already add in my Amazon ID at My account. Problem is I don't see any earnings at my Amazon account. Do I have to add in the Amazon capsule with my ID?

    Make sure the Amazon number appears in the space provided under ACCOUNT EARNINGS SETTINGS. If the affiliate code is there and your status reads ACTIVE, you're fine.  If not, click the CONFIGURE icon at the LEFT for the AMAZON PROGRAM and follow the prompts. When you've accomplished the steps, your settings will read "active" for the Amazon program. Hope this helps. ~~~

      yes, the status reads " Active" but i didn't earn a single cent for the past 5 years. I just had to add amazon capsule, choose the keywords and that's it right? No need to copy and paste anything like that?

      When you create your hub, you only have to place an Amazon capsule somewhere on that hub while you're in EDIT mode. This is done either by key words OR by actually copying a URL from Amazon and putting it in the HP Amazon template. Be sure to SAVE.

    I am a bit confused as to what you are asking. Are you asking about Amazon earnings under your Amazon account or under your HubPages account?

    If you want to earn from Amazon under their account, you must get an Amazon affiliate link for the product you are selling. Without that link in the text there isn't any way for you to sell the product through Amazon.

    If you do not know how to do that there is not enough space or time here to teach you how, but I am sure you can find free instructions with a Google search, a HubPage search or a YouTube search.

    If you ARE using an Amazon affiliate link, check to make sure the link is still active and the product is still available. If it is a yes to both, then my guess would be that, after 5 years no one is interested in buying that product and i would have dumped it 4 years ago.

    Hope that helps.
