    How to monetize hubs with Amazon and ebay?

    For the past three months, I've been making money with Adsense via Hub Pages.  But I've been wondering about adding Amazon and ebay, too, since I do  include Amazon products in my hubs. For almost a year, I've been monetizing my book review blog with Amazon Associates to make some money off with it. So I'm wondering on how to do Amazon here, without effecting my blog.   Any thoughts on it?

    You earn from Amazon Sales by way of your commissions, that is it.

      Okay Linda. Do I need to configure another Amazon account, which would be different than my AA account? How about ebay?

      In the place to configure, you either use your own AA account or use the HP Amazon program in which HP will give you an ID which is totally separate from your personal AA account.HP program, HP pays you commissions.

      Thanks Linda for helping me out. I might give both of them a try next week. I might add some ebay products, if it's related to my hub.

      If you are going to use your own Amazon Affiliate Account go this link  http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/crea … te-account
      Step 5: Enter your Associates ID at HubPages

      In my own AA account I created a tracker ID to for HP.

      Thanks Linda. I'm still new here, trying to figure things out. I'm waiting to hear from ebay too.

    You can sign up to be a hubpages Amazon / eBay affiliate and from what I understand, it's separate from Amazon associates that you do on your blog. 

    It's a great idea to at least have some Amazon / eBay pods within your hubs if they're relevant and not overly-promotional.

    I don't think there's anything to lose, so for me, it's totally worth a shot.  I've made a little bit of money using these pods.

      Thanks Cupcakes for helping me out.  I only do at least 1-2 Amazon prods for most of my hubs except for maybe one, which was an essay on my dog. I'll check it out next month.

    you can use back your amazon account but remember to edit it in your account settings to earn money

      Peach, I'm a still bit lost with the Amazon account. I get this message, when I want to configure Amazon tonight. PLEASE NOTE: By signing up to earn from the HubPages Amazon Program, you are electing to stop earning from  which will be replaced when
