I have been on Amazon several times, and created a list of books that relate to my hubs, and some books that I just recommend or like. I get to list them on a format I like, and click save. Then it gives me code, which it says to highlight and paste? Where? In a new hub? My lists are never saved, and when I have the code copied I can't post it anywhere. I want to use the Amazon Affiliate, and feel frustrated as I've tried over & over, and can't do it. Now they gave me 2 affiliate codes, and keep changing my customer and affiliate passwords. Help!
You can't use code here on HP. You can use an Amazon capsule, but that won't allow you to use your list. Two things you can do:
1) Use Amazon capsules and create your list in there; or
2) Create a link capsule and put the code's link in there. If you look closely in that code, you'll find a link that starts with http://, it has your Amazon ID in it and it ends probably either with a ' or ". Copy and paste that link and forget the rest of the stuff in that code. Note that you can only link to Amazon a max of two times per hub outside of an Amazon capsule.
Thank you Irohner. I'm somewhat tech challenged. I really just love to write, and found Hubpages whilst waiting for a book I wrote to be published (I hope)! I wasn't trying to over promote my Hub. It just looks like other people's hubs have more ads on them, and I thought I was supposed to do more about putting them on. Not to worry! I'll just keep writing. I'm really loving this opportunity for creativity!
You can put as many Amazon ads as you need/want on there. The only thing HP limits are links outside the ones in the Amazon/eBay capsules.

I'm kinda pissed and extremely dismayed. I've been with Hubpages and Amazon Associates for 5 years now and haven't made a dime with Amazon the entire time. I've reached out for help numerous times and not a single person told me that I have to get my Amazon links from the Amazon Associates website...

Hi all. I have set up Amazon Affiliate program on hubpages and featured Amazon products on a number of my hubs. Looking at it after a while, the link-type report in the Amazon account shows that no one has clicked on the products so far. I wanted to know whether this actually works, so I clicked on...

I am confused about putting a product on my hub. I can do the product, but if I try to imbed the description, it is HTML. I cannot find an answer at Amazon or in the FAQ here. I am a new associate. Thanks.

For my first hub I asked my mom if it would be alright for me to do a review of her book. She agreed and I wrote one up. I intended to post a link from my hub to her book on amazon, however, upon further reading I read it is generally a good idea to have one or two hubs already posted before I try...

Hi I was wondering how everyone ads their own affiliate link for amazon products. If I just add the ISBN into the amazon capsule, will i get the credit if there is a sale? Just a bit worried that it isn't tracked?Any ideas?Thanks
