    apparently I am not set up right for referrals to Amazon.  I have the code but do not know where to find the place I paste the code to HTML.  Also do I have to do this with every hub I write?

    As far as I know there is no provision in the hubs to paste HTML code. If you are referring to affiliate code you just click on "My Account" Tab. After you reach on My Account page, click on the tab "My Affiliate Settings" There you will find your affiliate settings. Here you paste your affiliate code in  Amazon Box. You need not do it for each and every hub. However, You have to add Amazon capsule in all your hubs. For activation of Amazon products you can get more information http://hubpages.com/hub/earnmoneywithblogs; titled "How to manage your Hubs for more cash earning?"

      Well this is the message I got from amazon:

      Hello Associate,
      We noticed that you were accepted to the Amazon.com Associate Program several weeks ago but have yet to refer an order. Here are three quick and easy steps to help you get started:
      Add an Easy Link to your Web site by copying the code from the text box below and pasting it to the appropriate place in your HTML (your tracking ID is already embedded in the code):

      (then there is a long code which I tried to paste in my amazon affiliate box....that's not right either. So what are they talking about????  Where is the 'approriate place')

      Do you need to add a Google Adsense capsule to all your hubs the same way?

        No. There is no need for Adsense capsule..thats decided by hubpages..where to place what type of google ads.
        You only need to Place Amazon or ebay Capsules after signing up for them.

        The Amazon instructions are generic for any affiliate with their own blog or website, hence the HTML coding.  Here on HP, you don't have to worry about any of that.  Simply enter your affiliate ID as instructed on the affiliate page of your HP account, and your Amazon capsules will automatically contain the code needed to give you credit for whatever revenue you generate when people click them.

    Your Amazon Associate ID is put in the appropriate box here: http://hubpages.com/my/affiliate

    If you mean placement of products, then you add an Amazon Capsule.

    More information on how to use the Amazon (and other) Capsules is here: http://hubpages.com/_learn/hub/capsules

    Amazon code being referred may be pasted on the sites like blogger.com. There is a provision to add an HTML element in your blog. Once you are assigned an affiliate code you can use it on other sites also. Its more useful to display the "deals" wherein Amazon provides 30 -60% or more discounts on daily deals and chances of orders placed are better than the HP. I don't know why HP is not providing this facility to hubbers. This orovides more opportunities for earning revenue from Amazon than by just displaying their products.
