Am I correct in that the only time you actually make money from Amazon is when someone cliks on something you have advertised on Amazon and then actually purchases THAT product? Or, do we make money if they click through to Amazon and ultimately buy ANY product?
You get money if they click through to Amazon on your link and buy any product or products.
You only make money when someone clicks through your link, makes a purchase within that immediate visit to Amazon (no matter what the product is) and does not return it.
If they leave the Amazon site for any reason before completing the purchase, you don't get credit for it.
Your account is credited when the item ships, but you'll see the dollar amount subtracted if the item is returned during the allowed return period.
I could be wrong, but I think there is a 24 hour cookie with amazon. This means if someone clicks through from your link and buys anything within 24 hrs you will get paid the commission. the only bad thing is if they click in through your link, then leave and click in through someone elses link. In that case you won't get the commission, even if it is within 24 hrs.

Why is it that excessive links to Amazon products seem to be permitted when they are added to the body of hub rather than as a Module on the side? In my naivety, I did not realise that this was permitted. Will these links survive when hubs are selected and moved to the niche sites?

I've searched around for answers about putting up aff links, and my concluded understanding is we can add no more than two links that point to one particular merchant, so I thought I could use for example multiple linkshare links as long as no more than two pointed to the same site. But my new...

I'm trying to link to a certain product but the widgety thing that finds the product is giving me the wrong item. In fact it's giving me an item that links to a Page Not Found. The only thing I can do is to paste in my own affiliate link for the correct item but that means that earnings will come...

I have been using HP for over 7 years now, and I do make a few bucks from my writings. I can say that you will never get rich or even make a living off of HP, but you can make enough to, as I tell friends, "go out to dinner a couple of times a month". But my point here is that as I watch...
