    Good morning all!
    I am new to HubPages and am trying to get Adsense set up. I have received the email stating the following:
       "In order to use AdSense through www, you'll need to grant www. access to the ad code and reports in your
    AdSense account."
       I haven't received an email containing my affiliate code or anything of the like from Google and when I try to link my existing Adsense to HubPages, all I get is the "WORKING" icon that becomes unresponsive.  When I click on the link in the latest email from Google, it says I have already granted permission to HubPages to access my Adsense account.  How do I retrieve my affiliate code from Adsense? I have e-mailed HubPages several days ago but have yet to receive a response and am excited to get started.  Also, I am having problems with EBay's codes...when I enter the unique identifier number in the affiliate codes section, I get an error message saying that the code must start with numbers instead of letters like the one that EBay has given to me.
    PLEASE HELP! Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance! smile

      You can only have one AdSense account, but it sounds like you aren't that clear if you've signed up for AdSense or not.  If you have, whatever affiliate code you are already in possession of is what you enter into the affiliate settings section on this end.

      Then, in your AdSense account settings, you have to make sure that access to AdSense is granted.

      That's it...

        Right - and if you already have an AdSense account, you can find your code in the upper right hand corner (once you've logged in.)

        About eBay - do you already have an EPN account? That's pretty slick if you've got one -'cause I hear it's hard to get accepted.'

    Thanks everyone for your help! I have worked everything out with my AdSense account and am now just working out the kinks with eBay. I am in the process of confirming my domain through ePN, but for some reason, ePN is saying that my email hasn't been confirmed yet so I sent them an email questioning this and am awaiting a response.  If you have any advice or suggestions to pass along to a newbie, I will take it! smile Thanks again for your help! Have a great day!

      Are you sure you've been accepted into eBay and that you didn't just get an acknowledgment?  eBay only accepts people who have their own websites - you can use an existing eBay account with HubPages but you can't apply through HubPages.
