    Please will anyone tell me...

    I have an Amazon item in a capsule.

    The Reader clicks and goes to Amazon.

    The reader decides not to buy the item I have recommended and clicks on another...

    She purchses that item...

    Do I get a cut of the third party item she clicks on because she has been referred via my link?

    Thank you to anyone who can help x

    If nothing changed since I checked Amazon stuff last time - yep, you should get your cut, providing:

    1. This happens within your share of impressions
    2. This happens within cookie lifetime.

      So having lots of products in the capsule, isn't really that necessary?

      The reason I ask is that I am working on a hub about Joe Strummer and the clash and they have loads of items.  Featuring just a couple might just suffice... would you do this Misha?

    Well, I am not the best specialist in Amazon around, I wish Embitca or Relache or another product oriented hubber would chime in - but if you ask me I would rather write a hub about one specific product, or a handful of very closely related products. In general such hubs are easier to rank, and they have better conversion rate. smile

      Oh... so the more complex a hub, the harder it is to rank!  That must be the reason why some hubbers on have a small selection of keywords and limited products! *penny drops*  Is that right? x

    My most profitable Hubs have been around several products not just one.  However if you create several specific product Hubs you can link them together to earn sales in a similar way.

    You will get referal fees if someone follows your link then clicks on another item and purchases it, this is not what amazon refers to as third party though.  Third party, in amazon, is when a visitors buys a product which is sold on Amazon by a company that is not Amazon, plenty of people sell their products on the Amazon market place for a small cut!
