    It seems that i find it not easy to find answers, so can I just ask a bunch of queries here? I don't want to make TONS of threads.

    OK, here is my first one.
    I added my Amazon afffiliate ID now, so does a sale goes to me only or does Hubpages share with me? And does it add up to my Amazon Affilites ID?

    You can find the answer here.

    The help section can probably answer all your newbie questions.

    And, yes, the money earned is added to you Amazon account.

    60% of the time, the revenue is yours. 40% of the time, it goes to HP.

      I think I am right ...not positive ... maybe uninvited writer or a hubpages staffer can chime in to clarify ... but:

      Hubpages splits Adsense impressions 60/40
          60% of display time Hubber gets 100% of impressions revenue
          40% of display time Hubpages gets 100% of impressions revenue

      It is NOT a 60/40 split of total impression revenue. The 60/40 split of display time is randomly generated so there is not a specific time that the display impressions belong to the hubber or Hubpages.

      Also ebay and Amazon affiliate income generated from sales by click-throughs from the affiliate modules belong 100% to the hubber. Hubpages DOES NOT take a split of afiliate sales commissions! Hubpages only splits the Adsense revenue.

      Also, and again, I'm not sure, but I don't think you are allowed to use direct ebay or Amazon affiliate links. You have to use the affiliate mods for that. I believe you could lose your ebay and Amazon affiliate accounts if you get caught doing it.

      again, might need some correction on this info - but I would bet it is correct as stated

        40% time impressions in the capsule use the hub id, every included aff program has IMPRESSIONS split with hubpages

        Hubpages splits 0 revenue, they split impressions or the opportunity to generate revenue

        You can direct link with any affilaite program you use regardless of whether hubpages also uses it. But like any affiliate link you can only use two per hub.

        Pictures tend to sell better with products. But, you certainly would not be in any danger of losing your aff account w/ ebay or amazon, neither of which is directly partnered w/ Hubpages

          Thanks for the clarification Sunforged, but now I'm bummed. Didn't mind splitting the Adsense time but was unaware I was also splitting the ebay Amazon time too.

    Aah. Really? OK then I hope Hubpages wont mind if I link directly sometimes (I review musical intruments sometimes).

    Another Q: Can you put 2 non text capsules together side by side? Example, a video and a picture?

      Hello. It seems that this question was unnoticed. Can anyone answer? i can't seem to put a video and a poll side by side.

    Actually, hubpages gets 60% of page impressions.  If you sell something with Amazon from you hub, you get 100% of the commission.

      Nope, you get 60% of impressions, hubpages gets 40%...see below, from the royalty FAQ posted above.  BTW this is about the best for any community-blog type sites such as hubpages...

    either way, if you are doing hubs for promotion of amazon items, i think its best to just direct link to them, since they already take a cut of your adsense pageviews (i don't really do amazon, but that's what I think).

    I really don't mind sharing, they give me money (by giving me traffic) so they might as well make some themselves.
