I'm sure this sounds ridiculous, but...

    I was wondering if I have to join ALL of the affiliate sites, like Google, Ebay, Amazon, etc., in order to receive any of the revenue, or is just being signed up through AdSense good enough? I know this sounds confusing, and dumb, but something I read in the 'help' section made me wonder if I have to sign up with ALL of them before I can start making any money.

    I'm sorry if this doesn't make any sense. Thank you for any help.

      You can sign up for any or all of them. Skip those you're not interested in.

      Unless your hubs are going to be specifically product-focused, you'll likely see most revenue come from AdSense anyway. I make about $250/month from AdSense, and about $10/month from Amazon/eBay combined (although I have stopped putting their capsules in my hubs).

      I belong to adsense and Amazon. Adsense is the only one with income but I have not really dedicated any time to product hubs.

    You don't have to sign up to all of them, just the ones you want.
