I'm getting that message from all Amazon links on my earnings page
Yikes! I quickly check my articles, and the links work.
It's the links on the Amazon sales page for products that people actually bought, rather than links on articles. There's seems to be a problem with both Amazon and 3rd party links.
We are aware of this issue and think the problem is on Amazon's end. If the issue isn't resolved in a few days we will implement alternative links on your Amazon sales page. This bug does not impact Amazon earnings.
You’re right Matt. I just investigated this further and I see that Amazon is not properly supporting their short URLs (amzn.com) as they used to do.
Luckily the short URLs are not used in the capsules or text links for Amazon. That’s why it’s only affecting the sales reports page.
Yes, I get that too, going from links on sold Amazon items on HP (Earnings section).
Don't see any issue with the Amazon Assoc site, so I guess it's an HP thing.
I reported this to Matt yesterday and he said they “will get it fixed soon.” It’s not an issue with Amazon. HubPages started using the wrong URL by placing “arcus” before the “www.”

I have always added my Products via a keyword search but I have been asked to add a couple of products via links instead. I am not sure whether my being in the UK makes a difference but should I be adding links from Amazon.com or from Amazon UK? I know that most of my traffic still...

Am I the only one seeing a fairly significant drop in earnings from Sunday, 9/20 to Monday, 9/21? My traffic stayed relatively the same during the same time.
