I don't have too many links mentioning products, but I would like to ramp that up a little. I noticed that at least one very successful person here does not usually have pictures of the products with the "click here" buttons. If we just hyperlink the Amazon product, and someone orders from that, do we still get the Amazon credit? I wasn't sure whether I had to use a formal Amazon capsule that provided a pic with the click here button. Thanks for your knowledge in advance.
Yes, you will get Amazon sales credit through the links. In fact, the niche sites actually prefer you use a link. For certain things I think the little pictures help bring attention to the product, but you probably will find that the editors will suggest exchanging the capsule for an in-text link.
Abby, you will get paid for sales if you create the link correctly. It should display a little “A” before the text that you hyperlink.
To do that, highlight the text you wish to hyperlink in the HubTool and click the link icon. It will give you several options. Choose the Amazon option and put the item number in the search field. Or you can enter the name of the product. If several items show up, choose the one you want.
If the text link appears with the little “A” then you’ll know you did it right.
Thanks for that further explanation. I haven't done one in quite awhile and had forgotton the details. I must have done it right though, mine have the "A".

OK I know a lot about links, but somehow I can't make a damn link to turn into a live hyperlink in Yahoo answers! I've done it both ways; just typing in the plain URL, and also using the full a href= code.None of them work. Do you have to post enough before they let your links be live or something?

How do I place my own Amazon affiliate link into a text capsule? I should know by now how to do this, but I don't and I had no idea that I would get 100% of the commission by doing so!

When someone clicks on a product link, do they have to buy that specific item for you to get a commission, or can it be anything they buy on the site through that link?
