    If you have added yourself as an Amazon Affiliate, you could add the Amazon capsule on your hub so you can add Amazon adds on them. Add as many capsules and add as you want and are appropriate.

    You could do the same thing with your other websites.

        You do not need that link - it's all taken care of by HP.

        Forget all the information on the Amazon Affiliates site.  It's for people who have their own website, and HubPages is not your website.

        Add the Amazon capsules on your individual Hubs.  Open the capsule and you'll see you can enter a keyword and let it find the products - or you can choose specific products. 

        Choosing specific products is best. You do that by going to the ordinary Amazon.com website - not logged in as an affiliate - and finding the product you want.  You then find the ASIN or ISBN number of the product (in the product information section) and paste that into the capsule.

          I am new at this.  Where do I find the capsule to add amazon or ebay?  I am sorry I am not smart at doing this.

    J@aps is right on.  When editing a hub, add an Amazon capsule and fill it out by editing the capsule.  Products to be advertised can be either specific products or chosen by Amazon from a search parameter you provide.

    Most of my hubs have 0, 1 or 2 Amazon capsules, but I have one with 8 capsules advertising 19 different products.

    You must repeat the process for each hub.

    If I'm using the Amazon Modules will it add my Amazon ID information to properly give credit for the purchases?

        Your Amazon affiliate code will show on the modules for 60% of impressions.
