Hello: I'm a newbie, so please forgive if this is obvious, but I'm having issues importing items into Amazon capsules. There are two problems:
First, if I do a key word search, it gives me titles besides the one(s) I want. I cannot find a way to delete those I don't want.
Second: If I go to Amazon.com to look up each item and then paste the ASINs into that query box (each on a different line, as it says), it invariably finds only the first one, and says it can't find the others.
Ultimately, I relent and do a separate capsule for each item, but that's extremely tedious...and, at times, the search tool will find something in a keyword query, but not the same product with an ASIN query.
If this is covered somewhere, I apologize, but can't find it. Is there a simple and fast way to populate these Amazon capsules?
You can choose the ASIN option and go to Amazon and hand pick the items that you want to feature.
Make sure to have the ASIN option clicked verus keyword.
Check that you have the option to show however many ASINS you choose up to 8. It's default at 4, but you may have checked for 1, which could explain why it's only showing the first ASIN that you enter.
Just an additional note: you can help screen out items on a keyword search by selecting a category. This way, if you're doing a hub on the touring the city of Chicago, you can select "books" and you don't end up with a Chicago CD in your capsule.
To those who helped me with my little problem with the Amazon capsule (Whitney05, Darkside, and Maddie Ruud), many thanks. and Darkside, I found your capsule hub very helpful...thanks for. Thanks to all your help, i do think i've got it figured out.
You can also put a minus sign in front of keywords to screen out some items returned by a keyword selection in both the Amazon and eBay capsules.
Your techniques are wonderful. It did work well. Thanks

The nice thing about the new Amazon capsule is that it displays the description text in the same size as the rest of the hub. This can be beneficial and may turn into better sales. So I reorganized one of my hubs, moving much of my text from text capsules into the Amazon description fields. This...

So, this is the third time HP has snipped Amazon from my hubs. Every time one of my Hubs is edited by HubPages to add to a network site they snip any Amazon capsules on the Hub. The Amazon capsule is always extremely relevant to the topic discussed and is not spammy, yet HubPages doesn't seem to...

Janderson just submitted some great suggestions on this thread:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/126313#post2666393and I think this one deserves a suggestion post on its own.We're always being told to be discriminating with our Amazon capsules - less is more, they must be directly related, etc...

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

I posted a new Hub this morning which included an Amazon capsule with 8 or 9 related items in it. However when I went back to look it over after publishing, the Amazon capsule was not showing up, there's just a blank space where it should be.When I went into "edit" mode I can see the...

Please don't laugh at me but I am literally jumping. Within my over 2 years here in hubpages, it is only now that I have this in my Amazon Sales Report tab. That is four out of 10 items in over two years so you can imagine that in two year's time, there are many months that my sales report is...
