I'm confused. Do I need to open an Amazon affiliates account for the Amazon links in my hubs?
Hi Glenis, you don't have to do anything, but if you are looking to make money through Amazon affiliates, you'll have to link your Amazon account in your earnings page.
Yes, you need an Amazon account to earn from any capsule or link you place on your article. There are two ways to have an Amazon account. One is directly set up with Amazon and the other is through HubPages. Both have to be associated to your HubPage account. To learn more about how to set up an account through HubPages there is this article https://hubpageshelp.com/money/Learning … te-account
It will give step by step how to set one up.
You may get more feedback about using Amazon at the forums. There are new rules at HubPages how to utilize Amazon. For instance, it is recommended today to use in text links instead of capsules. There is discussion how to use them properly and how many per article.
